BOSTON — The New England Patriots are heading to Kansas City after all.

Pats quarterback Cam Newton tested positive for coronavirus on Friday, causing the NFL on Saturday to postpone the Patriots-Chiefs game originally scheduled for Sunday.

A spokesperson for the Patriots confirmed that while the team did not leave from Gillette Stadium, they were on their way to two different airports Monday morning.

Pro Football Focus reported Monday morning that the Patriots would take two planes to Kansas City, one with the 20 or so people who were in close contact with quarterback Cam Newton, and one plane with everyone else.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter also reported Monday morning that the Patriots' overnight coronavirus test results all came back negative.

Since Newton was tested on Friday night, no other Patriots players or coaches have tested positive.
