Patriots reportedly placing Michel, Mason & Rivers on Covid-19 list

The Patriots, who had no new positive tests on Saturday morning and returned to the facility for a walkthrough, placed Sony Michel, Shaq Mason and Derek Rivers on the reserve/Covid-19 list, per Field Yates.

They join Byron Cowart and James Ferentz on that list.

Being placed there does not necessarily mean the player tested positive — it could mean they were considered extremely close contacts, whether at the facility or at home, to someone with Covid-19.

UPDATE: Michel has tested positive, according to a league source.

What does this mean for the game, roster and lineup?
