Gillette Stadium reportedly back open Saturday, as Patriots prepare to host Broncos


Gillette Stadium is back open.

According to ESPN's Field Yates, the facility has been reopened Saturday morning after it was shut down Friday afternoon following a positive COVID-19 test.

Offensive lineman James Ferentz was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list later on in the day.

The Patriots are preparing to host the Broncos Sunday at 1 p.m.. They will only have practiced once this week, as Saturdays are usually walkthroughs.

This game was scheduled to be played last week, but was rescheduled for this week following positive COVID tests last week.

Cam Newton, Stephon Gilmore and Bill Murray were removed from the COVID list, so right now the Patriots have Byron Cowart and Ferentz on the list.
