Several NFL teams are dealing with false-positive COVID-19 test results, and it appears the New England Patriots are one of them.
Jeff Howe of The Athletic reported Sunday the Patriots received false-positive COVID-19 results over the weekend. The results in question are connected to a BioReference Laboratory in New Jersey.
