Two Kansas City Chiefs Players May Not Be Able to Play in Super Bowl 2021 Due to COVID-19 Exposure

Two Kansas City Chiefs players have been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list and may not be able to play in the 2021 Super Bowl due to exposure to the virus.

ESPN reports that wide receiver Demarcus Robinson and center Daniel Kilgore were the two players placed on the list.

The COVID-19 list is used for players who have either been exposed or officially diagnosed. There is a chance they could still play in the Super Bowl if they receive five consecutive days of negative tests.

“The NFL has done a great job with it, presenting different safety things for the players to stay as safe as possible,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “We’ve been hammering this point home forever. The problem is you’re fighting the invisible man. It just gets you when least expected, and we’re seeing that in everything. It’s an unfortunate thing.”

“These guys were being as safe as they could be,” he said, adding, “and we’ll just see how it goes. But the league has built-in rules and regulations, so we follow those, and it’ll all work out. It’ll all work out for them when it’s all said and done.”

We’re sending our best to these two players and hope they continue to test negative.
