Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid has announced an encouraging update that's hard to come by in these days of COVID-19.

Amid a major outbreak throughout the NFL, every player on the Chiefs' 53-man roster has tested negative for the virus, per KC insider Pete Sweeney.

"Everybody passed their COVID [test] that's on the roster," Reid told reporters during a press conference on Wednesday.

Last week, the Chiefs had several key players land on the COVID-19 list and miss Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers -- including star tight end Travis Kelce and starting kicker Harrison Butker. Just yesterday, the team had 16 players on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

The only player who was unable to suit up for Wednesday's practice was Clyde Edwards-Helaire. The second-year running back was forced to exit Sunday's game with a collarbone injury.

The Chiefs, who've already clinched an AFC West title with an 11-4 record, will face off against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17.
