Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Chiefs placed DT Chris Jones on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

The COVID-19 list was created this summer for a player who either tests positive for or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons.

Players will remain on the list until they are medically cleared to return.

Jones, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2016. He just finished the final year of his four-year, $6.231 million contract and made a base salary of $1.19 million in the final year of the agreement.

The Chiefs franchised Jones before eventually signing him a four-year, $85M extension that includes $60 million guaranteed this past summer.

In 2020, Jones has appeared in seven games for the Chiefs and recorded 22 tackles, 4.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and a pass defense.
