Cam Newton is back on the Patriots active roster.

A report on Wednesday afternoon suggested that Newton would be returning to practice with the team on Thursday after spending nearly two weeks on the reserve/COVID-19 list. The release of the NFL’s daily transaction wire a short time later made it all but official.

Newton has been activated from the list, which leaves no obstacles to his return to the field for practice or for Sunday’s game against the Broncos. Newton missed the team’s Week Four game against the Chiefs after his test from the Friday before the game came back positive.

With Newton off the list, attention will shift to whether cornerback Stephon Gilmore will be activated in time to face Denver in Week Six.

  1. Of course he is activated. Why do you think this game was postponed twice??

    Then why not postpone the Chiefs game so Newton could play? Dry those tears.

    The Pats were gonna lose to the Chiefs anyway. Losing to Denver, which was likely the way Stidham looked, would have put the Pats in quite a hole.

    The Patriots would have beaten the Chiefs with Newton.

    The Patriots would have beaten the Chiefs with 4 quarters of Stidham
    to be even more accurate

  4. Outside of the Ravens game, the Chiefs haven’t looked like last year’s Chiefs.

    With Newton the Pats would have thumped them pretty good… I mean Carr looked like prime Dan Marino against them. Herbert looked like a vet without any first team reps and his first snaps of his pro career. That Chef Defense has regressed and Mahomes seems less Mahomes like

  5. Pats were going to lose to the Chiefs? They SHOULD have converted two Mahomes’ picks and got at LEAST an additional 6 points on FGs. Why are we not reading about Mahomes slippage? Two ugly near picks against NE and an very ugly pick against the Raiders. Plus their D got shredded by LV for multiple 50+ yard TDs. They aren’t making it back to the SB at this rate, no matter how long the season is.
