FOXBOROUGH, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -- On Saturday, the New England Patriots announced that another three players have been placed on the COVID-19 list, according to several sources.

ESPN's Field Yates tweeted a statement Saturday evening and reported that starting running back Sony Michael, defensive end Derek Rivers, and starting right guard Shaq Mason who were all placed on the list earlier that afternoon.

It is unclear at this time who has tested positive for COVID-19 since being on the list doesn't necessarily mean whoever is on it has tested positive, but could mean they were near someone who did.

Yates also tweeted earlier that day saying, that the Patriots reopened their Foxborough facility, which was closed on Friday due to a positive COVID-19 test that was reportedly within the organization.

It is unclear at this time on whether the Patriots' game against the Denver Broncos will still be scheduled tomorrow, Sunday, at 1 p.m.
