Listing of Jones does not necessarily mean that he tested positive for COVID-19. As was the case with full-back Anthony Sherman, Jones may have been in contact with someone who tested positive for the virus.
This is really the case with Jones, NFL network.
It was previously revealed on Thursday that Chiefs sports coach and vice president Rick Burkholder had tested positive for the virus, so he may is the person Jones has close contact with. We can̵7;t say that’s 100% certain at the time of this writing, but it’s worth noting that Jones has been listed in the injury report being treated for his injured groin since Week 4.
If Jones is classified as a “high-risk close exposure,” he will need to be isolated from the group for five days, with a clock starting the day after the active subject’s exposure. There is no such information at the moment so it is unclear if Jones will play against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
