It has been reported that the Patriots may deploy a rotation at the position in games. This doesn't seem likely, but the Patriots do get creative so can't rule it out. All three QB's (Newton, Hoyer, Stidham) have gotten equal reps with the first team. It was also reported that each had a rough practice on Wed. as the QB's were throwing short of the mark and looking quite bad.
Multiple league sources state, Newton was announced as the teams starting QB today during the team meeting.
Per Ian Rapoport, Cam Newton has tested positive for COVID-19 and will not play in week 4 @ KC. The game itself has been postponed until Tuesday Night, barring any other additional positive cases.
