The Chiefs, on the eve of Super Bowl LV, made a flurry of roster moves, including the activation of backup center Daniel Kilgore from the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Kilgore is eligible to play Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He had been placed on the reserve list and had not been able to practice with the Chiefs this week after being a close contact to a barber who tested positive for COVID-19.
Kilgore went through Saturday’s walk-through with the Chiefs before they departed for Tampa, Florida.
#Chiefs center Daniel Kilgore was cleared for Super Bowl LV, source said, after spending the week on the COVID-19 reserve list because of a high-risk close contact with a barber. He tested negative all week and is good to go.

Everyone on the Chiefs has tested negative for COVID — including C Daniel Kilgore, who is now eligible to return — per a source. No COVID concerns for K.C. entering the Super Bowl.
