KANSAS CITY, Mo. — New England Patriots starting QB Cam Newton wasn’t the only NFL quarterback to test positive for COVID-19 Saturday morning.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Saturday morning that Kansas City Chiefs practice squad quarterback Jordan Ta’amu also tested positive for COVID-19.

After Newton’s positive test, the NFL announced that the Patriots at Chiefs game, which had been scheduled for 3:25 p.m. on Sunday, would be rescheduled to Monday or Tuesday.

The Tennessee Titans had at least 14 players and staff test for COVID-19 after last week's win against Minnesota. The league initially planned to postpone its game this at Pittsburgh to Monday or Tuesday, but wound up having to postpone it until midseason.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
