The Broncos-Patriots game had initially been rescheduled to Monday but is now being moved to next Sunday after the Patriots had one new positive test for the coronavirus Sunday morning, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Aside from the one positive test, all other Patriots tests were negative Sunday morning, a source told Schefter.

The NFL shut down the Patriots’ facility Sunday morning for the third time in 10 days while further testing is conducted, sources told Schefter and ESPN’s Field Yates.

The Patriots had reopened their facility and held a practice Saturday after the facility was closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Quarterback Cam Newton, cornerback Stephon Gilmore and practice squad defensive tackle Bill Murray are currently on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
