“The New England-Kansas City game scheduled for 4:25 p.m. ET Sunday will be rescheduled to Monday or Tuesday after positive COVID-19 tests on both teams,” the league announced in a statement. “In consultation with infectious disease experts, both clubs are working closely with the NFL and the NFLPA to evaluate multiple close contacts, perform additional testing and monitor developments. All decisions will be made with the health and safety of players, team and gameday personnel as our primary consideration.”
Patriots quarterback Cam Newton and Chiefs practice squad QB Jordan Ta’amu both tested positive for COVID-19 and have been placed on the reserve/COVID list.
Chiefs star Tyrann Mathieu would soon take to Twitter and send a blunt message for his fellow players following today’s news.
“Wear your mask, wash your hands,” he tweeted.
Well freaking said.
