The Patriots placed G Shaq Mason, DE Derek Rivers and RB Sony Michel on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday. The NFL is aware of the Patriots situation and Sunday’s game against the Broncos will be played as scheduled. Michel tested positive for coronavirus on Saturday, per Jeff Howe of the Athletic. The Patriots RB was placed on the injured reserve in early October due to a quad issue. Michel was a few weeks away from returning, but this could possibly delay his comeback. The Patriots backfield will continue to be led by James White, Damien Harris, Rex Burkhead and JJ Taylor while Michel is sidelined.
