Cam Newton's father shares COVID-19 update on Patriots QB amid new report
Newton's father shares the COVID-19 update on Pat's QB while a new report was originally posted on NBC Sports Boston
Sunday brought some notable updates on Cam Newton's health.
The Patriots quarterback is still on the New England COVID-19 / Reserve list after testing positive for the virus on Friday October 2. Newton reportedly showed no symptoms of COVID-19 last week and in a recent interview with ABC 11 Bridget Condon, Newton's father Cecil, said his son is still asymptomatic.
"I asked him about his immune system and how he was feeling and whether the symptoms were fever, chills, headache, cough and the like," Cecil Newton told Condon. "He didn't have any of the symptoms so I think he can fight his way through."

This is encouraging news. However, FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reported Sunday that Newton was still testing positive for COVID-19 late this week and is still not required to return two negative tests at least 24 hours apart, which would prompt him to return to the team.
Cecil Newton and Glazer may both be right because you can still test positive for COVID-19 without showing symptoms.
Cam Newton missed the Patriots Week 4 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, but the New England Week 5 matchup against the Denver Broncos has reportedly been postponed to Week 6.
So if he can test negative twice in the next week with an interval of at least 24 hours, he could become active again next Sunday.
Cecil Newton said he did not know how Newton contracted the virus, but believes his son followed all the correct protocols.
"You just never know where to get it from," said Cecil. "... He says he distanced himself socially before (his positive test) and after, and so did I. But who knows where it came from?"
