New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton has tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter announced the news Saturday on Twitter.

The Patriots released a statement informing the public that a player tested positive and is now in quarantine, but did not name Newton.

“Late last night, we received notice that a Patriots player tested positive for COVID-19,” the statement reads. “The player immediately entered self-quarantine. Several additional players, coaches and staff who have been in close contact with the player received point of care tests this morning and all were negative for COVID-19.

“We are in close consultation with the NFL, as well as our team of independent doctors and specialists, and will follow their guidance regarding our scheduled trip to Kansas City and game against the Chiefs. The health and safety of our team, as well as our opponent, are of highest priority.”

This is Newton’s first season with the Patriots and has led them so far to a 2-1 record.

Wade Carter, who died Friday, Oct. 9, is remembered as a great football player for the Warren Central Vikings.

Carter was a star linebacker for the Vikings in 2006, playing under WC’s former head coach Curtis Brewer. He was an outstanding player who helped lead the team to many victories in his high school days.

In 2007, Carter was selected to play in the Bernard Blackwell Classic by the Mississippi Association of Coaches because of his great senior season. He had finished the 2006 season with an impressive 113 tackles, leading the Viking’s defense.

Carter’s hard work on the field never went unnoticed, and he impressed many college scouts around Mississippi. A few months before graduation in 2007, Carter signed a football scholarship to play at Hinds Community College.

Carter died last week at the early age of 31 after being shot at LD’s Kitchen Oct. 6. A suspect, James Earl Winters, 29, remains at large.

Carter leaves behind plenty of family, friends and former teammates who will miss him dearly.
