Bill Belichick, Julian Edelman happy to have normal practice week

The Patriots have had a pretty wild October.

On just the second day of the month, quarterback Cam Newton received a positive COVID-19 test, making him the first of eight Patriots players to wind up on the COVID-IR list in October.

After more positive tests came in following their game against the Chiefs, the Patriots had to close down their facilities on multiple occasions, and their game against the Broncos was delayed twice.

Now, after going nearly a week without a positive COVID-19 test, the team was able to have a normal workweek. For the first time since the lead-up to their game against the Chiefs, the Patriots practiced three times in one week.
