According to The Washington Post, NFL players who test positive for the virus or who are identified as having been exposed through contact tracing are placed on the reserveCOVID-19 list.
Vaccinated players or staff who test positive for the virus and are asymptomatic are eligible to return to duty if they register two negative tests 24 hours apart, according to a memo obtained by Pelissero from the NFL sent to clubs in July.
Unvaccinated players must quarantine for 10 days, just as they did in 2020, and will be allowed to return to duty if they are asymptomatic.
According to head coach Andy Reid, 90 percent of the Kansas City team was vaccinated when training camp began.
According to a league spokesperson who spoke to KSHB 41’s Casey Murray on August 17, the team was over 95% vaccinated.
“According to the spokesperson, they are one of seven NFL teams to reach the 95 percent mark,” Murray wrote.
Despite the Chiefs’ high ranking, it is unclear whether Kemp has been fully vaccinated at this time.
Kemp is a member of the Special Forces.
Kemp does the majority of his damage for the defending AFC champions on special teams, despite playing only 6% of the team’s offensive snaps through ten games, according to Pro Football Reference.
He has played 80 percent of the team’s snaps on that unit and has eight tackles and one tackle for loss.

Great special teams perform admirably.
