Patriots tight end Devin Asiasi has tested positive for COVID-19, Jim McBride of the Boston Globe reports.

Asiasi is vaccinated, so he can return after two consecutive negative tests 24 hours apart.

He is competing to be the third tight end behind Hunter Henry and Jonnu Smith.

The Patriots announced they have released receiver Devin Smith, who signed to the New England practice squad Dec. 9 and later signed a futures contract.

Smith, 29, entered the league as a second-round choice of the Jets in 2015. He also has played for the Cowboys.

Outside linebacker Kyle Van Noy and offensive tackle Trent Brown are not yet cleared for practice as both landed on the active/physically unable to perform list Tuesday. The Patriots can remove them from PUP at any time this summer.

The Patriots worked out free agent offensive tackle Jerald Hawkins. Hawkins, a fourth-round choice of the Steelers in 2016, has appeared in 19 career games with one start.

  1. Which vax’s are these? Are they JJ or we talking the Phizer one? It matters.

    ==============
    None of them prevent you from getting the virus. All of them are very effective in preventing illness that requires hospitalization or may result in death. That is what matters.

  3. I just spent a week in Vegas, masked indoors as much as humanly possible w/J a d J (got it in March as I am easential mfg), took my test as a precaution today, and it’s negative.

    It’s all about odds, peoole. Get vaccinated and be smart. I know for some right wing extremists, being respectful and intelligent is very hard for you.

  4. It’s funny how common it is to hear that a fully vaccinated person has tested positive, and yet we act like that’s normal. When the vaccine was being developed, we all thought it was to prevent us from contracting the virus. Nobody would have accepted the idea that you were still susceptible after getting the shot.

    We also were told that developing your own antibodies from getting the virus would not necessarily protect you – but it looks like it’s at least as effective as the ‘cure’.

  5. Say it with us: the vaccines are not magic 100% armor. You can get infected, but you will not get seriously ill and die. You will also not infect others as much and recover a lot faster. This is totally expected and not a failure. The same thing can happen if you had COVID.

    OMG where are you guys getting this stupidity from?? SHUT OFF FACEBOOK NOW.

  7. I’ve actually had one Pfizer and one Moderna shot when my state failed to give me a follow up appointment for my second Pfizer vaccination within the three to four week window. A physician friend was able to get me a Moderna vaccination after she had extra vaccines during a clinic she was running. I was later exposed to a vaccinated friend (Pfizer) who contracted COVID and I luckily never tested positive. I doubt I had more protection because the mixing, because the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are both messenger RNA, but you never know.

    Yes keep moving the goalposts lol

  9. All medical intervention has risk.

    All drugs have potential negative side effects.

    Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in hospitalization.

    But it is this simple, the Covid vaccines dramatically reduce the chance of getting Covid but are even better at mitigating the risk of protracted illness or death. The risks associated with not taking the Covid vaccine are far greater in both the likelihood of contracting the disease and dying from the disease.

    When people post that a vaccinated person still contracted Covid without the above caveat they are either ignorant of the science or purposely fudging the facts. It’s that simple.

  10. Yes keep moving the goalposts lol

    While the tinfoil hat crowd keeps running into the goalposts, lol.

  11. What happened to 95% efficacy, 94.1% efficacy, and 72% efficacy? It used to be “protection from getting infected” but now it’s just not getting a “severe” case. How are they calculating these numbers? It already had a 99+% survival rate.

  12. “breakthrough cases” buzz word of the 2021 NFL season. just so we’re clear, these people are athletes and are as healthy as it gets. as for the coaches, that’s a different story. happy trails to all the vax gamblers out there

  13. The good news is that most people will be immune and not catch the disease, but Delta is a real PITA and able to infect some of those that may have not developed full immunity. At least, though, vaccinated people are still staying out of the hospital and not dying, some 99.5% of the cases and deaths are among the unvaccinated. Seriously, the vaccine is well worth getting. Beats the hell out of dying or surviving with lifelong injuries from the disease.

    Where I live 78% of new cases are unvaccinated, 18% half vaccinated, and the remaining 4% fully vaccinated – so yeah, I’d say that vax is better than 95% effective.
