Chiefs COVID News: Tyreek Hill Clears Protocol, Travis Kelce, two other Starters Ruled out vs. Steelers
A Christmas miracle did happen for the Kansas City Chiefs, but not two ahead of their Week 16 matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, the Steelers’ two most lethal weapons, were both moved to the team’s reserve/COVID-19 list recently. This puts their availability against the Steelers at risk. Hill will play Sunday, but Kelce was ruled out after failing to clear protocol in time.
According to multiple reports, Kelce underwent several more tests on Sunday in an effort to join Hill in clearing protocol. Even though the tight end had not yet cleared protocol, the organization activated him from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday, hoping he would clear it on Sunday.
The Chiefs gambled on Kelce, Nick Bolton, and Lucas Niang clearing protocol. As a result, three active roster spots were wasted, along with the absence of three starters. Corey Matthaei, Mike Kafka and Greg Lewis were also ruled out of Sunday’s game by COVID.
Having Hill as a target for Patrick Mahomes and crossing their fingers, eyes and toes that Kelce might be available make the Chiefs much more confident about their chances in this game — they are vying for both home-field advantage and the only first-round bye in the AFC — and that puts them in a much better position to win.
