The 49ers are scheduled to play the New England Patriots in Foxboro on Oct. 25. But as COVID-19 continues to spread through the NFL, that game potentially could be in jeopardy.
New England had another positive COVID-19 test among team personnel on Friday morning and canceled practice, ESPN's Mike Reiss and Field Yates reported citing sources.
ESPN's Adam Schefter did report that Patriots players are being told to prepare for a game Sunday despite the test results. New England already has seen its schedule shifted around several times due to COVID-19, as the team's game Sunday against the Denver Broncos was pushed from Week 5 after defensive tackle Byron Cowart tested positive two days before scheduled kickoff between the two teams last week.
The 49ers' schedule is yet to be affected by a COVID-19 test, but if more positive results come in for the Patriots over the few days, that could change quickly.
