New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton posted on Instagram Sunday to thank fans for “the love, support and well wishes” following reports that he tested positive for COVID-19.

Newton and his team were scheduled to take on the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday but couldn’t after the Patriots announced that a player had tested positive for the virus.

On Instagram, Newton wrote: “I NEVER WILL QUESTION GODs reasoning, just will always respond with, YES LORD!! I appreciate all the love, support and WELL WISHES!! I will take this time to get healthy and self reflect on the other AMAZING THINGS THAT I SHOULD BE GRATEFUL FOR!!”

Newton can be seen wearing a mask in the photo with the post on Instagram Sunday.
