Former South Carolina star and current New England Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore became one of the latest NFL players to test positive for COVID-19.

Gilmore played Monday against the Kansas City Chiefs, but early Wednesday, news of his positive test came out. Gilmore then released the statement below on social media.

“Thank you to everyone who has reached out since hearing about my positive COVID-19 test,” Gilmore wrote. “Your messages are unseen and are greatly appreciated. I’m currently asymptomatic and will take this as it comes. I don’t know what to expect, but my spirit is high because of God. I’ve followed every protocol, yet it happened to me. Please be sure to take this seriously.”

Patriots QB and former Auburn star Cam Newton recently tested positive, which was one reason why the game was moved to Monday. The Patriots also had practice squad defensive tackle Bill Murray on the team’s reserve/COVID-19 list.

Gilmore, the NFL’s reigning Defensive Player of the Year, played every defensive snap in Monday night’s 26-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. The Patriots are scheduled to play host to the Denver Broncos on Sunday, but that game is obviously in jeopardy.
