Chiefs backup center Daniel Kilgore was reportedly mid-haircut when a rapid PCR test for said barber came back with a positive COVID-19 result. Thankfully, both the barber and Kilgore were wearing masks and Kilgore has been clear of the virus himself so far. The Chiefs narrowly avoided disaster as QB Patrick Mahomes and several others were slated to get their haircuts too.
Kilgore took to Twitter on Wednesday, updating his profile picture to show off his sweet new haircut. Well, actually it’s just half of a haircut.
Check it out:
Obviously, Kilgore is just poking some fun at himself and the latest reports surrounding the situation. You know this Kansas City team can never have too much fun and they always know how to make the best out of a hairy situation. It’s also good that Kilgore is keeping a good attitude and doesn’t seem to be blaming the barber or anyone for knocking him out of practice this week.
Kilgore didn’t get an uneven trim as his photo might suggest. Since he was already exposed to the virus as a close contact he told the barber to go ahead and finish up according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The barber did.
For those wondering: Being that Chiefs' C Daniel Kilgore already was sitting in the barber chair and deemed a "close contact", he told the barber to finish. And he did.
But this has the makings to become the first "Touch of Gray" endorsement to come out of Super Bowl week.
