Patriots' Sony Michel, Shaq Mason, Derek Rivers Reportedly Put on COVID-19 List

The reportedly placed running back Sony Michel, guard Shaq Mason and defensive end Derek Rivers on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, according to ESPN's Field Yates.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported the NFL has added a "high-risk" close-contact category to protocols that requires players in that category to isolate for five days. Pelissero noted that one or more of the players placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list by the Patriots on Saturday may be part of the high-risk group.

New England canceled practice Friday after a player reportedly tested positive for COVID-19, but the Patriots reopened their facility Saturday, per Yates.
