KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Chiefs wide receiver Demarcus Robinson has been cleared for practice after being placed on the COVID-19 reserve list, reports say.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero announced the news on Twitter Friday.

Robinson came into contact with a barber Saturday who tested positive for the virus a day after cutting the wide receiver's hair.

The barber had tested negative five days in a row but received a positive result from a rapid test while cutting players' hair at the Chiefs facility on Sunday.

Robinson has returned negative test results for five days, as required by the NFL.

Daniel Kilgore, who was also placed on the reserve list as he was getting his hair cut when the positive result came back, has to clear one more day of testing before he is cleared. So far, his tests have been negative.
