Cam Newton tests positive for COVID-19; Pats-Chiefs postponed

By Ben Fawkes  (VSiN.com) 

New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton tested positive for the coronavirus and is out for the team's Week 4 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, league sources told ESPN.

The Patriots said in a statement on Saturday, "Late last night, we received notice that a Patriots player tested positive for COVID-19. The player immediately entered self-quarantine. Several additional players, coaches and staff who have been in close contact with the player received point of care tests this morning and all were negative for COVID-19."

The NFL released a statement on Saturday that players on both teams had positive COVID-19 tests.

The game has now been postponed and sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter that it will be played on Monday or Tuesday, with "Tuesday more likely."

The Chiefs had been 7-point home favorites against the Patriots at sportsbooks around the U.S.

The line moved to Chiefs -11 at several Las Vegas sportsbooks for a few minutes Saturday morning, before coming off the board once the game was postponed.
