BOSTON (CBS) — The Patriots added three more players to the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday, one day before the team is set to host the Denver Broncos at Gillette Stadium.

ESPN’s Field Yates reported that running back Sony Michel, guard Shaq Mason, and defensive end Derek Rivers were all placed on the list on Saturday.

The Patriots are placing RB Sony Michel, G Shaq Mason and DE Derek Rivers all on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, per source.

That news comes one day after center James Ferentz was placed on the list, as well.

Being placed on the list does not necessarily mean that the players tested positive. It could instead mean that the players had close contact with someone who is known to have tested positive.
