Edelman among five Patriots questionable to play Week 5 vs. Broncos


Five players for the New England Patriots are questionable to play in Monday night's Week 5 game against the Denver Broncos at Gillette Stadium.

This game originally was scheduled for Sunday at 4:25 p.m. ET but the league moved it to Monday at 5 p.m. ET after Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this week.

It's still unknown whether Patriots quarterback Cam Newton will be able to play versus the Broncos. He tested positive for COVID-19 last Friday and missed the Week 4 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Patriots head coach Bill Belichick did not have any further details when asked about Newton's status Saturday morning, saying the team is "taking it day by day, hour by hour."

Julian Edelman is among the players listed as questionable for the Patriots. Two important offensive lineman, left tackle Isaiah Wynn and right guard Shaq Mason, also are questionable. The Broncos already have ruled out tight end Noah Fant with an ankle injury. Denver starting quarterback Drew Lock is questionable with a should injury. Lock has missed the last two games.
