The Kansas City Chiefs are telling their players that training camp “is a go,” according to a report from NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo added that rookies, quarterbacks and select veterans will take physicals and get fitted for equipment over the next two days, with the full team due next Saturday, July 25.

The players will be tested for COVID-19 on Monday. As we noted from Houston Texans defensive end JJ Watt’s tweet from Thursday afternoon, players have not been given a disease response plan, they don’t know how they will conduct camp safely and don’t know if there will be any preseason games. Still, Texans players were also told to report on Monday.

The Chiefs are scheduled to host the Texans on opening night, Thursday, September 10.

The various question marks can’t stop the Chiefs from telling their players to report, and now it will be up to the NFL Players Association to file an expedited grievance if they want to hold camp back.

The timeline (?)

If the NFL Network reporters are correct, that means the Chiefs will take physicals and be fitted for equipment sometime in the next two days, then be tested on Monday.

And away we go.
