The Kansas City Chiefs activated All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday.

That was just one piece of good news from head coach Andy Reid. The other: Everyone on the active roster is out of COVID-19 protocols.

The Chiefs had 14 players on the reserve/COVID-19 list over the past two weeks.

Kelce missed the Chiefs’ Week 16 rout of the Pittsburgh Steelers after testing positive.

On the season, Kelce has caught 83 passes for 1,066 yards with seven touchdowns. This is his sixth straight season with at least 1,000 yards.

In his ninth season in Kansas City, Kelce has caught 695 career passes for 8,947 yards and 55 touchdowns. He’s also run for two scores.

The Chiefs (11-4) have clinched the AFC West title and are seeking the No. 1 seed, which brings home-field advantage and a bye week. On Sunday, they will meet the Bengals (9-6) in Cincinnati, then close out the season Jan. 9 with the Broncos in Denver.
