98.5 The Sports Hub staff report
The ongoing coronavirus pandemic refuses to leave the football world alone.
Super Bowl LV is no exception, as the highly anticipated meeting between the Bucs and Chiefs was hit with its first COVID-19 scare Monday, with Chiefs center Daniel Kilgore and wide receiver Demarcus Robinson added to the COVID reserve list due to close contact over the weekend.
The good news for both, however, is that neither player tested positive, according to multiple reports.
The expectation is that both players will be ready to go for next Sunday’s game, too, with Chiefs coach Andy Reid noting that “they’ll work through it.”
Robinson finished the 2020 season with the third-most grabs among all Chief pass-catchers (45), and his 466 receiving yards were the fourth-most among all Chief threats, trailing only Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, and Mecole Hardman. Kilgore, meanwhile, made his four starts for the Chiefs during the regular season.
Super Bowl LV is set for this Sunday, Feb. 7, from Tampa Bay’s Raymond James Stadium.
