KANSAS CITY, Mo. - According to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, Kansas City Chiefs Strength and Conditioning Coach Barry Rubin has tested positive for COVID-19.

Fortunately, for the Chiefs, no players have been in the facility for the last two days, making the number of players that would be involved in contact tracing and the NFL's COVID-19 quarantine policies limited. 

The Chiefs also have the benefit of a bye week, due to being the No. 1 seed in the AFC. The bye allows the Chiefs to recover from the virus and make sure all staff and players are healthy heading into the NFL Playoffs.
