The Kansas City Chiefs will take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday in Super Bowl LV. The reigning NFL champions could be without two players due to a positive Covid test from a barber.
Starting wide receiver Demarcus Robinson and backup offensive lineman Daniel Kilgore were placed on the reserve/Covid-19 list Monday due to their close interaction with the barber.
According to the NFL.com report, both players wore masks during the visit and have not tested positive for the virus, yet. Each player will be unable to practice with the team in the week leading up to the game due to league protocol, but continued negative tests will have them ready to play come Sunday.
Players and personnel from both teams are tested twice a day and no player has tested positive in more than a week.
