The plan — fingers crossed — remains for the Patriots and Broncos to play Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium.
Concerns over the matchup, which already has been rescheduled twice, were renewed over the weekend when three additional New England players were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. But the two teams will kick off at 1 p.m. ET, according to The Athletic’s Jeff Howe.
Obviously, all of this is subject to change at a moment’s notice.
Following a three-week absence, Patriots quarterback Cam Newton reportedly will start Sunday afternoon. So, too, will Broncos quarterback Drew Lock, who hasn’t played since Week 2 due to a shoulder injury.
