Stephon Gilmore says he’s ready to get back in action

The Patriots will play their next game against the Broncos on Sunday and they’ll hope to have two key players currently on the reserve/COVID-19 list in the lineup for that matchup.

Quarterback Cam Newton and cornerback Stephon Gilmore both tested positive over the last two weeks. Head coach Bill Belichick said on Monday that “we’ll see how it goes” with Newton, who is reportedly asymptomatic and is far enough removed from his positive test that his chances of playing appear to be pretty good.

Gilmore’s test was more recent, but he also said he’s asymptomatic and could be cleared to return 10 days after that test. That would be this Friday, although Gilmore could also be cleared if he tests negative twice at least 24 hours apart.

It’s not clear if the latter has happened, but Gilmore wrote that he’s “ready to be back in action” in an Instagram post on Monday. The Patriots would surely like that to be the case, but we’ll have to wait to find out if the 2019 defensive player of the year will play this week.

  1. Of course they will get cleared to play. The Patriots never follow the rules while other teams will have to play without there star players. Not Billy Boy He will cancel the game and wait it out.

    Yet, Goodell irresponsibly sent a team with a positive into the smallest locker room in football for money and to make sure NE was put in a horrible position, while risking the health of other players…Knowingly.

    Yeah, Goodell does us a lot of favors.

    lmao

  4. im starting to think everyone hated tom brady more than anything, even patriots fans. its hilarious how much more charitable people are in their narratives with regards to patriots and belichick since he left.

  5. I can’t help but wonder how many people let Bill Belicheck and the Patriots live rent free inside their heads. The vast conspiracies people spin are interesting.
    Just look at the reality of what has already happened: The Titans had a true COVID outbreak and it took days to get someone from the league to bother investigating why. The Patriots had a single COVID case and the League was there within hours searching for an excuse to punish the Patriots.

  6. Mike Tracy:. You do understand it’s up to the league and medical staff that decides when COVID positive players can return?
