BREAKING NEWS: Cam Newton Tests Positive for COVID-19

COVID-19 has been the steady constant in 2020. We’ve seen it affect professional sports and how they’re being played. The NBA and NHL put their players in bubbles. The MLB shortened their season significantly. While the NFL decided to proceed basically as scheduled. The Titans had an outbreak this week. And now? It’s finally affected us here in New England. Cam Newton has officially tested positive for COVID-19 and will be out for tomorrow’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

This is obviously a huge blow for the Patriots. Cam Newton looked really good through three games thus far. But with Newton testing positive for COVID-19, that means a few things.

The Game Just Got Postponed

So now, the Patriots won’t be playing tomorrow against the Chiefs. The Chiefs practice squad quarterback also just tested positive for COVID-19. The players were about to head to Kansas City today before the news came down. It’s a shame that COVID had to happen and apparently spike, but that’s just been 2020. Is it likely that these teams even play Monday or Tuesday? Probably not. We’ll see what happens with future developments.

If the Game Happens Tuesday, Whose the QB?

Obviously with Newton out, who would be taking the snaps under center? Brian Hoyer would probably be the very safe bet. Hoyer has been the backup and a veteran around the league for a number of years now. I would say let Jarrett Stidham get his shot. But he isn’t ready and has been inactive for the first three weeks. Let Hoyer step in and hopefully be a game manager and give you a chance.

In Conclusion

This is a huge blow in a number of ways. It stinks that a guy like Cam Newton has to go through quarantining and fighting off this virus. It makes the Patriots chances to win that much tougher. Obviously, we wish Cam well and hope that he recovers ASAP. We’re not done watching him make highlight reel plays just yet.
