KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WIBW) - Travis Kelce and Harrison Butker are among the Kansas City Chiefs welcomed back to practice after they were slated on the COVID-19/Reserve list.
Kansas City Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid said in a news conference on Wednesday, Dec. 29, all players on the active roster who were on the COVID-19/Reserve list last week have been cleared and are back at practice.
“Everybody passed our COVID [tests] that’s on the active roster,” Reid told reporters.
The only player not at practice was RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who left Sunday’s game against Pittsburgh with an injured collarbone.
NFL’s Ian Rapoport reported Edwards-Helaire’s x-rays were negative for any breaks.
