Chiefs to play Patriots Monday after no new positive COVID-19 tests arise
(WIBW) - The NFL announced Sunday the Kansas City Chiefs will play the New England Patriots Monday night.
The game will kickoff at 6:05 p.m. CT on 13 NEWS.
The NFL said further testing of players and personnel on Saturday and Sunday returned no new positives on either team.
The Chiefs and Patriots are also working closely with the NFL and NFLPA infectious disease experts to do contact tracing.
The NFL announced exposure protocols are now in effect for both teams.
ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter said both teams will test again Monday morning before the Patriots travel to Kansas City that day.
The game, originally scheduled for Sunday, was postponed after Schefter reported Patriots starting QB Cam Newton tested positive for the virus and will miss the game against the Chiefs. Chiefs practice squad QB Jordan Ta’amu also tested positive for COVID-19.
