The Chiefs put both of their starting offensive tackles on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday.

The NFL’s daily transaction wire brings word that left tackle Eric Fisher and right tackle Mitchell Schwartz were placed on the list. Reserve tackle Martinas Rankin was also placed on the list.

Wide receiver Mecole Hardman and practice squad defensive tackle Braxton Hoyett were placed on the list last week.

If the offensive linemen are on the list as close contacts of someone who tested positive, they should be cleared to return in time for Sunday’s game against the Raiders as long as they continue to test negative. They could miss practice time during the week, however.

  1. Does it matter though? The Raiders had all 5 starters miss practice the entire week and the game wasn’t moved. I’m sure Goodell is already scheming up a way he can move the game to Tuesday so they can get in sufficient prep work this week prior to Sunday night.

  2. Just to be safe, the Chiefs should quarantine the entire starting offense until November 23rd. Thank you.
