UPDATE: Saturday, 9:14 p.m. Arrowhead Time

The Patriots’ other COVID tests have come back negative, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.


The game between the Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots that was previously set for Sunday at 3:25 p.m. Arrowhead Time has been postponed by the NFL, but as of Saturday evening the league does not have a definitive makeup day for the game, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The NFL will wait until it receives more test results on Sunday before deciding if the game will be played on Monday, Tuesday or at a later date.

About one week ago, Atlanta Falcons cornerback A.J. Terrell tested positive for coronavirus, but the Falcons’ game against the Chicago Bears went off as scheduled when there were no other negative tests.

The case with New England and Kansas City is different, given that there have been positive tests for both teams. Both Patriots starting quarterback Cam Newton and Chiefs practice squad quarterback Jordan Ta’amu have tested positive for the virus. The Patriots have not yet traveled to Kansas City.

Chiefs fans with tickets for the originally-scheduled time can use those tickets for the makeup date.
