Report: Chiefs’ Anthony Sherman added to COVID-19 reserve list
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WIBW) - Chiefs FB Anthony Sherman has been added to the COVID-19 reserve list, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Senior NFL Reporter Albert Breer of The MMQB reports Sherman was placed on the list because he was exposed to the virus — not because he had a positive test.
According to the NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, new NFL-NFLPA protocols distributed Monday detail handling players who experience “high risk" exposure: “Anyone with ‘high risk’ close contact exposure to a COVID-19 positive individual must be isolated for at least 5 days, even if the person is negative and remains asymptomatic.”
Both the Chiefs and the Patriots reported no new cases from Monday’s round of testing, per Pelissero.
The Chiefs are slated to travel to take on the Buffalo Bills 4:00 p.m. Monday, Oct. 19.
