Chiefs' Eric Fisher: Back with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs activated Fisher off the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Fisher was placed on the list as a high-risk close contact to someone who tested positive, so the fact that he's cleared the league's protocols is a good sign. Now officially healthy, he'll assume his usual starting role as the team's left tackle for Sunday's game against the Raiders.
