KANSAS CITY, Mo. — As the Kansas City Chiefs and the National Football League get ready to start the second week of its schedule, there was good news about the first week.

ESPN’s Senior NFL Insider Adam Schefter reported Thursday morning that COVID-19 tests on all Chiefs and Houston Texans players, coaches and team employees came back negative following last Thursday’s season opener at Arrowhead Stadium.

The tests were the first to return from the 2020 regular season, Schefter reported.

While players, coaches and team personnel came back clear, Schefter reports that an Arrowhead Stadium groundskeeper did test positive for COVID-19, though that groundskeeper never came close to players.
