Pa­tri­ots can­cel prac­tice af­ter test­ing

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette - - Pro Football -

From New Eng­land to At­lanta to In­di­anapo­lis, the fo­cus Fri­day was not on foot­ball. It was on, not sur­pris­ingly, coron­avirus tests.

The Pa­tri­ots can­celed prac­tice af­ter a mem­ber of the or­ga­ni­za­tion re­port­edly tested pos­i­tive for COVID- 19.

The team and the NFL did not the pos­i­tive test and did not if it in­volved a player or a coach.

With the Colts, there were four pos­i­tive tests that, when retested, came up neg­a­tive. The Fal­cons re­turned to their fa­cil­ity one day af­ter aban­don­ing it when they an­nounce re­veal had a sec­ond pos­i­tive.

New Eng­land ( 2- 2) al­ready twice had the orig­i­nal Week 5 matchup against Den­ver post­poned af­ter four pos­i­tive coron­avirus tests by play­ers, in­clud­ing quar­ter­back Cam New­ton and cor­ner­back Stephon Gil­more. The game is sched­uled for Sun­day in Foxborough, Mass., but now could be in jeop­ardy.

“I don’t re­ally know the an­swer to that,” Bron­cos coach Vic Fan­gio said when asked about fi­nally play­ing the Pa­tri­ots.
