Cam Newton tests positive for COVID-19, out Week 4 vs Kansas City Chiefs

The Patriots will be without their starting quarterback this week.

NFL: Oakland Raiders at New England Patriots Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports

New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton will not play in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs due to testing positive for COVID-19.

Fantasy Impact

YIKES! COVID is hitting the NFL hard now and it seems to have moved past just the Titans. Without Newton, the Patriots offense is going to look a whole lot different. As of now, I don’t know who the Patriots plan on starting but my guess would be Brian Hoyer given his history with the Patriots and Josh McDaniels. Needless to say, this is a huge blow to all the Patriots pass catchers.
