The New England Patriots have canceled Wednesday’s scheduled practice but still plan to re-open the facility to players for workouts.
The Patriots’ first practice of the week is scheduled for Thursday. The team is set to practice again Friday and hold a walkthrough Saturday before Sunday’s game with the Denver Broncos.
The Patriots’ facility was closed last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday with three players on the COVID/reserve list. The Patriots practiced Saturday, but a fourth player was placed on COVID/reserve Sunday, causing New England’s Week 5 matchup with Denver to be moved to Sunday, Oct. 18, at 1 p.m.
The Patriots’ bye week was moved up from Week 6 to Week 5.
