Chiefs DE Frank Clark dealing with dehydration issues after bout of COVID-19

·2 min read

Kansas City Chiefs DE Frank Clark was the lone player to miss a practice this week and we now know why.

According to reports from the KC Star’s Jesse Newell and Nate Taylor of The Athletic, Clark is still recovering from a bout with COVID-19. He told reporters in the locker room that he felt symptoms come on after the team’s final preseason game back on Aug. 25th. He tested positive for COVID and spent the following week-plus recovering before eventually testing negative.

Clark was back on the practice field this week. He dealt with dehydration following Wednesday’s practice and missed practice on Thursday as a result. He was back on the practice field on Friday during the portion of practice open to media members.

Andy Reid said that barring a setback, Clark should be ready to play come Sunday.

At the same time, expect a healthy dose of Mike Danna, George Karlaftis and Carlos Dunlap against the Cardinals. Even if Clark is over the dehydration issues, missing a practice puts him a little behind the eight ball for the upcoming game.
