The Chiefs really dodged a bullet on this one.

The Kansas City Chiefs avoided what could have been an absolute disaster on Saturday, when a barber who was COVID-19 positive was in the midst of cutting the team’s hair, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Only two Chiefs — wide receiver Demarcus Robinson and backup center Daniel Kilgore — ended up on the reserve list as a result of being a close contact with the individual. Any player on either the Chiefs or Tampa Bay Buccaneers who tests positive for COVID will immediately become ineligible for Super Bowl LV on Sunday.

There is more from Schefter.

On his way to being cleared on Wednesday, Kilgore had some fun with this now-public nugget on his official Twitter account.
