It’s unclear if the three were placed on the list due to testing positive or as high-risk contacts, which would determine how long they would stay on the list. 

The Chiefs are set to play the Raiders this coming week. 

Fisher, 29, was the No. 1 overall pick back in 2013. He signed a four-year, $63 million extension with $40 million guaranteed back in 2016.

In 2020, Fisher has started all nine games for the Chiefs at left tackle. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 13 tackle out of 77 qualifying players. 

Schwartz, 31, was taken in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft by the Browns. After playing out his rookie contract with the Browns, Schwartz signed a five-year, $33 million deal with the Chiefs in 2016 that included $15 million guaranteed.

Schwartz signed a one-year extension in 2019 to take him through the end of the 2021 season when he’ll make a base salary of $5.905 million. 

In 2020, Schwartz has started six games at right tackle for the Chiefs and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 32 offensive tackle out of 77 qualifying players.

Rankin, 26, was selected with the third round of the 2018 draft by the Texans. He’s in the third year of a four-year, $3,546,268 deal and set to make a base salary of $750,000 in 2020. 

Rankin was entering the second year of his deal when he was traded to the Chiefs in exchange for RB Carlos Hyde.

In 2019, Rankin appeared in six games for the Chiefs and made five starts. He was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 63 guard out of 78 qualifying players.
