Quarterback Cam Newton and corner Stephon Gilmore have been cleared off the reserve/COVID list.
Each of New England’s players had previously tested positive with the virus.
Their return to practice now paves the way for them to play on Sunday when the Patriots host the Denver Broncos at Gillette Stadium.
For Gilmore, that would result in zero games missed due to his positive COVID-19 test thanks to New England’s Week 5 game with Denver being postponed to Week 6.
Newton, absence looks to be stopped at just one game as his positive test came down prior to the Patriots Week 4 contest with the Kansas City Chiefs.
