Gilmore’s activation from the record comes a day after quarterback Cam Newton was taken off the record, as each gamers will now be eligible to play in Sunday’s sport vs. the Broncos.
The optimistic assessments for Newton and Gilmore — together with observe squad defensive sort out Invoice Murray — led to the Patriots’ sport being postponed final week from Sunday to Monday. However when defensive lineman Byron Cowart examined optimistic over the weekend, the sport was moved from Week 5 to Week 6.
Patriots head coach Invoice Belichick was requested Thursday morning if he anticipated Gilmore to be activated. Belichick replied by saying “he must be cleared first,” a sign that Gilmore had not but been medically cleared. That clearance apparently was given previous to the afternoon, although, which bodes nicely for the Patriots this weekend.
