A report on yesterday suggested that Newton would be returning to practice with the team today after spending nearly two weeks on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Newton has been activated from the list, which leaves no obstacles to his return to the field for practice or for Sunday’s game against the Broncos. Newton missed the team’s Week Four game against the Chiefs after his test from the Friday before the game came back positive.
Now that Newton off the list, attention will shift to whether cornerback Stephon Gilmore will be activated in time to face Denver in Week Six.
