The New England Patriots have another positive test in the building; reigning Defensive Player of the Year Stephon Gilmore has tested positive for COVID-19 as of Tuesday, according to NFL Media's Tom Pelissero. 

Pelissero also made clear that Gilmore was the only person in New England to test positive for the coronavirus as of Tuesday. 

As a result of Gilmore’s positive test New England has cancelled Wednesday’s practice. 

Last Friday, quarterback Cam Newton also tested positive for COVID-19, and immediately entered self-quarantine and was placed on the COVID-19/reserve list. He missed the Patriots’ 26-10 loss to the Chiefs as a result, and could possibly miss New England’s Week 5 game against the Denver Broncos as well. Practice squad defensive tackle Bill Murray was also reportedly added to the COVID-19/reserve list on Tuesday.
