NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the NFL has alerted involved teams to the possibility of schedule changes, but no final decisions have been made yet on a new date for Broncos-Patriots or related ripple effects on other teams.
The Jets, who were to play at the Chargers next Sunday, instead will play at Miami. "That's our No. 1 priority", Belichick said Saturday. Additionally, the Broncos are slated to play in 12 consecutive weeks, as their bye week is now Week 5.
Unfortunately, the uncertainty of the COVID-19 "incubation period" means that the team could go days without a positive test but wouldn't necessarily be out of trouble.
The Kansas City Chiefs at Buffalo Bills Week 6 game moves from Thursday, October 15 to Monday, October 19 at 5:00 p.m. ET on FOX/NFL Network/Amazon. The NFL and union updated protocols for when players who test positive can return to play, depending on whether the player experienced symptoms.
Tech Tent: Giants under the cosh from Congress
Apple and Amazon are accused, amongst others, of abusing their market dominance in the app store and marketplace, respectively. The old dream of politicians like Democrat Elizabeth Warren to "chop up" big tech has not been possible.
Fangio said he understood his players' feelings. The Titans have possible replacements going through testing protocols in case Brinkley isn't back for a team that won its first three games by a field goal inside the final two minutes.
Later Saturday, the Titans activated offensive lineman Isaiah Wilson, their first-round pick who had been out since September 6, and defensive back Greg Mabin, a member of the practice squad, off the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Despite that, it's been a rough week for the National Football League as far as COVID-19 goes.
The league has since confirmed the postponed fixture between Denver and New England will now take place next week on Sunday, October 18 at 1pm eastern time.
