FOXBOROUGH, Mass .– The New England Patriots had a virtual team meeting on Saturday night and the players were told, pending negative tests, that the current plan was to play the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday, said sources at ESPN’s Dianna Russini.Saturday began with the team confirming that “a Patriots player tested positive for COVID-19” and that “the player went into quarantine immediately.” That player, league sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Field Yates, was quarterback Cam Newton.

But the day ended with a negative test return from all the other Patriots on Saturday night, a source told Schefter. The NFL has yet to get test results from the Chiefs, the source said, but that was what the league needed and wanted to see after a chaotic day in New England.
