Chiefs’ COVID-19 Super Bowl 2021 issue started with haircuts

This is tentatively titled “Barbershop LV.”

The two Kansas City Chiefs players who were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday were so designated because they received haircuts by a barber who tested positive on Sunday, reported Tuesday.

Neither wide receiver Demarcus Robinson nor center Daniel Kilgore have tested positive, but they landed on the list because they were deemed high-risk close contacts of the barber at the Chiefs’ facility.

The barber reportedly had tested negative on five consecutive days before he entered the facility Sunday.

The two players face a five-day quarantine period, but they will be eligible to play in Super Bowl 2021 against the Bay Buccaneers as long as they continue to test negative before Sunday.

The masked barber was trimming Kilgore’s hair when a rapid test came back positive on Sunday, and he was removed from the building. He then revealed that he’d also cut Robinson’s hair away from the facility on Saturday, according to the report.

Robinson caught 45 passes for 466 yards and three touchdowns during the regular season, but he has caught just one pass for 14 yards during two playoff games. Kilgore four games during the regular season and served as a backup lineman in the Chiefs’ victory over the Bills in the AFC Championship Game.
