    Would be huge for the Steelers if he can’t suit up.

    Thats not bragging, vaxed is easier to get back on the field. Think he just needs two consecutive negative tests. Whereas unvaccinated I think you miss 10 days? Not sure of the rules this year.

    It would be an absolute game changer if he can’t go but I expect that he will be back given that it’s only Monday now

    It will be interesting to see who else from the chiefs hit the list?! Seems like they happen in bunches.

    I believe they are changing the protocol on the whole thing. At least by what I've heard today.
    Something about if You are vaccinated, and aren't showing outward symptoms.....they won't even test You again.....or something 2 that effect.

    Pretty much yea. If you're asymptomatic and vaccinated, no need to test anymore. With 98%+ of the NFL vaccinated, why are they even testing at this point?

    They change the rules last week. If I understand what I read correctly, under the old rules, he would be sitting Sunday's game out because he tested positive. Under the new rules, he has a shot to play because he is vaccinated.

    They certainly still have plenty of firepower, but Kelce is a huge part of that offense. What the Steelers really need is for Chris Jones to stay on the COVID list, but that seems unlikely.

    Not many teams do. That is why he's the #1 or #2 TE in the NFL and has been for the last 8 years and has made 7 Pro Bowls

    Don’t forget all of their RB’s. We can’t afford for them to have a running game.

    Considering we had to play and tied the Lions despite missing our QB, I think they should have to play.
