KANSAS CITY, Mo. — No one on the Kansas City Chiefs active roster tested positive Wednesday, coach Andy Reid said, but one player has been added to the team’s reserve/COVID list.
Offensive tackle Mike Remmers is now one of 12 Chiefs players currently on the COVID list, per the NFL transaction report. Remmers has been on the injured reserve list since mid-November.
On Tuesday, seven Chiefs were put on the reserve/COVID list, bringing the total to a season high of 13.
- Tyreek Hill – WR
- Blake Bell – TE
- Rashad Fenton – CB
- Nick Bolton – LB
- Kyle Long – G
- Lucas Niang – T
- Armani Watts – DB
- Travis Kelce – TE
- Harrison Butker – K
- Charvarius Ward – CB
- Josh Gordon – WR
- Chris Jones – DT
- Willie Gay – LB
But Gordon and Gay were spotted at practice Wednesday, and Coach Andy Reid confirmed they’re off the COVID list now.
With the updated league-wide protocols, there is a chance that vaccinated players can return for Sunday’s game. But any unvaccinated players who test positive automatically have to sit out for 10 days.
For a majority of the season, the Chiefs had avoided a COVID-19 outbreak. Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu tested positive for COVID-19 in September, causing him to miss the first game of the season against the Cleveland Browns.
But the league has seen a record number of positive cases in the last few weeks, which caused some games to be rescheduled.
Kansas City hosts the Pittsburgh Steelers for their last home game of the season on Sunday. Reid said Wednesday that he’s had no conversations with the league about moving the game.
