Kansas City Chiefs free safety Tyrann Mathieu isn’t practicing Thursday, as he remains on the reserve/COVID-19 list. mathieu tested positive just over a week ago and is fully vaccinated, per The Kansas City Star. Apart from that, we don’t know any details, but it’s safe to say he hasn’t been able to get back-to-back negative tests 24 hours apart or he’s still showing symptoms.
Vaccinated players just need the two tests and to not show symptoms of COVID-19 while unvaccinated players need to at least 10 days of quarantine before returning. Chiefs defensive coordinator says he just doesn’t know if Mathieu will be cleared to play yet, and that they have a plan B installed if he can’t, per Arrowhead Pride’s Pete Sweeney.
