KANSAS CITY, Mo. — After two straight days of adding players to the league’s reserve/COVID-19 list, the Kansas City Chiefs reportedly received a bit of good news Wednesday morning.

NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport tweeted that the Chiefs had no new COVID-19 positive tests Wednesday morning.

As of Tuesday evening, a total of 16 Chiefs players were on the league’s reserve/COVID-19 list, a list that included tight end Travis Kelce, wide receiver Tyreek Hill and kicker Harrison Butker.

While the status of many of the players remains unclear ahead of the team’s important AFC game Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Butker will miss the game.

The Steelers have had their own COVID-19 issues, as the league as a whole has recently been struggling with a surge.

On Wednesday, they added LB Devin Bush on the Reserve/COVID-19 List.
