Kansas City Chiefs place DT Chris Jones on reserve/COVID-19 list

The Kansas City Chiefs placed defensive tackle Chris Jones on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

Jones was listed as a limited participant in Thursday's practice for reasons unrelated to an injury. That makes it likely Jones was found to be a close contact of someone who tested positive for COVID-19 as opposed to testing positive himself.

The Chiefs said earlier in the day that one of their staff members had tested positive. The team moved up its practice session by a couple of hours and then closed the practice facility for the day. Kansas City virtually conducted meetings in the afternoon.

Jones leads the Chiefs in sacks with 4.5.
