KANSAS CITY, Mo.  — After sitting out on the regular season opener against the Cleveland Browns, Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu will be back for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Mathieu sat out of last week's practices after he contracted COVID-19. He was cleared from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday but did not play in last Sunday's game.

Mathieu spoke to reporters Thursday about the Chiefs' coaching staff's decision to bench him for the game.

"Coach Reid and the training staff made the best decision for me," Mathieu said. "I'm very, very happy to be back."

The safety said he was feeling 100% for Sunday's game or "if I'm not, I'm getting there."

The Chiefs will travel to Baltimore, Maryland, later this week. Kick off is set for 7:20 p.m. on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium.
