UPDATE 1:50 p.m. | The Kansas City Chiefs have announced that they have activated cornerback Charvarius Ward.

Ward was among players placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list earlier this week.

He joined defensive end Chris Jones at practice Thursday, according to coaches.

UPDATE, Noon | Defensive end Chris Jones was spotted at practice on Thursday.

Jones was one of the first to land on the reserve/COVID-19 list last week and missed the game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Attending practice is a good sign that the star defensive player may be back in action Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

ORIGINAL STORY | After starting the week with back-to-back days of adding players to the NFL’s reserve/COVID-19 list, the Kansas City Chiefs have now gone back-to-back days with better news.

NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport tweeted Thursday morning that sources told him the team had no new positive cases Thursday.

KSHB 41 Sports’ Nick Jacobs says the team could still add positive cases among players on the team’s practice squad or injured reserve lists, such as what they did in adding offensive lineman Mike Remmers to the reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday.

The Chiefs are set for a team practice around noon Thursday when it’s possible some of the players on the active roster that have been in COVID-19 protocols could come off the list.
