Report: New England Patriots Receives Good News On COVID-19 Front

The New England Patriots will meet the Buffalo Bills again and this will be a really big game for both teams. NFL teams deal with a surge of COVID cases at the moment. The Patriots didn’t lose too many players but they were without a top player. Kendrick Bourne ended up on the COVID-19 list. It was a big blow for the team. The Patriots got good news regarding their COVID-19 front.

Wide receiver Nelson Agholor didn’t join his teammates for the game against the Indianapolis Colts. His teammates lost the game against the team and now they are going against the Bills. Bourne’s absence had a huge impact on the game.

NFL fans thought that Bourne would miss another night.

Patriots COVID-19 front is stronger

Get ready for the big news. Bourne will join his teammates for the AFC East match. Andrew Callahan from The Boston Herald reported that the fifth-year receiver cleared COVID protocols. In other words, he will suit up for Sunday’s game. That’s more than good news for the team.

Bourne probably gave us the good news before Callahan and Mike Giardi broke the news. He took to his Twitter account to deliver a cryptic message. “The best Christmas news ever.’’ Oh, yes, he was definitely happy about something.

The wide receiver is fully vaccinated. Unvaccinated players have to isolate themselves from the team for 10 days. Bourne didn’t develop any symptoms and his COVID tests returned negative.

New England released the final injury report for the week. They listed eight players as questionable for the game. Rhamondre Stevenson and Nelson Agholor won’t play.

The Buffalo Bills will be without receivers Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis. Both players haven’t received their vaccines, meaning they have to stay away from team facilities for a while.

Having Bourne back gives us the a good reason to believe that the Patriots will get the best of their AFC East showdown. Head coach Bill Belichick is really confident about the game. Rookie Mac Jones wasn’t really happy following the loss to Indianapolis. That should motivate him to get better this time.
