The Kansas City Chiefs received some positive news Wednesday regarding their ongoing COVID-19 issues.
The organization registered zero new positive cases for the virus following the latest round of testing, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.
A few hours later, the team placed offensive tackle Mike Remmers on the reserve/COVID-19 list, and activated linebacker Willie Gay and receiver Josh Gordon from the list. Remmers was on injured reserve.
The Chiefs placed seven players, including star wideout Tyreek Hill, on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Tuesday. A day prior, K.C. placed star tight end Travis Kelce, kicker Harrison Butker and cornerback Charvarius Ward on the list.
Rapoport reported Butker will miss the team’s Week 16 matchup against the Steelers because he is unvaccinated and therefore required to quarantine for 10 days. Elliott Fry is expected to kick in his place.
Per the NFL’s updated COVID protocols, fully vaccinated players who test positive can clear protocol within one day if they register two negative tests and are asymptomatic.

In 2020, it appeared as if T.J. Watt would take home the Defensive Player of the Year award his older brother, J.J., has won three times. Then, Aaron Donald swooped in to take the award for the third time in his career. This time around, there might not be room for Donald to steal Watt’s shine.
