A day after their fifth positive COVID test canceled practice and shut down the facility, the Patriots are back at Gillette Stadium.

According to the Boston Globe’s Jim McBride, the Patriots are holding an in-person workout Saturday in Foxborough. The team will also hold virtual meetings Saturday night before Sunday’s 1:00 p.m. kickoff against the Denver Broncos.

Since the results of their first positive COVID test on the evening of October 2, the Patriots have held just one true practice (Thursday), and now three walkthroughs. However, the team has been holding virtual meetings as they prepare to play the Denver Broncos.

As of Saturday morning, the game is “still on track” for Sunday at 1. The league has already had to reschedule this meeting twice (from last Sunday, to Monday, to this Sunday), and there are no more bye weeks left to move the schedule.
