Reports: Demarcus Robinson, Daniel Kilgore placed on reserve/COVID-19 list

If the two players continue to test negatively, they may still be active for Super Bowl LV.

The Kansas City Chiefs have placed both wide receiver Demarcus Robinson and backup center Daniel Kilgore on the reserve/COVID-19 list, according to a report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid confirmed the report.

As Schefter notes, Robinson and Kilgore have been added to the list since they were in close contact with an infected individual. Both will now be isolated from the team. So long as they test negatively over the next six days leading into the game, it is possible both can still participate in Super Bowl LV.

New details emerged on Tuesday.

Robinson has played in 65% of the Chiefs’ offensive snaps in 2020, catching 45 passes for 466 yards and three touchdowns. Robinson has one catch for 14 yards in the playoffs. Kilgore started four regular-season games at center for the Chiefs this year.

Any player that tests positive for COVID-19 is automatically ruled out for the Super Bowl, so this will be something worth monitoring as we draw closer to the game.

According to friend-of-the-site Matt Derrick of Chiefs Digest, the Chiefs have also designated tight end Deon Yelder to return from injured reserve.
