A Kansas City Chiefs strength and conditioning coach has tested positive for coronavirus, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who tweeted this report from his official Twitter account late Saturday morning:

The Chiefs are currently scheduled to play the Las Vegas Raiders at Noon Arrowhead Time on Sunday. It is unclear how this could impact the game, but the expectation at this point is it would go off as scheduled — so long as there are no further positive tests.

The NFL is already dealing with scheduling issues stemming from a coronavirus outbreak among players and staff of the Tennessee Titans, which caused Sunday’s Titans-Buffalo Bills matchup to be moved to Tuesday night.

For that reason, the Week 6 Bills-Chiefs matchup originally slated for Thursday Night Football was moved to next Sunday, but it still could revert back to this Thursday if there are more positive tests in Tennessee.
