Former 49ers center Daniel Kilgore was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list as his new team, the Kansas City Chiefs, heads to play in Super Bowl LV. This all occurred because of a haircut gone wrong.
Kilgore was in the middle of getting a haircut on Sunday when it was revealed that the barber, who was planning on also giving trims to star QB Patrick Mahomes and other members of the Chiefs organization, tested positive for the coronavirus.
Upon ESPN's Adam Schefter revealing more details of the haircut situation on Wednesday, Kilgore updated his Twitter avatar to reflect this new hair -- with a little Photoshop help:
Kilgore is doing his best to make light of a scary situation, and has continued to test negative since the incident. He and the barber were both wearing masks during the cut.
Mahomes couldn't help but poke fun at Kilgore's "look" as well.
The Chiefs also placed wide receiver DeMarcus Robinson on the COVID/reserve list, as he also was considered to be a close contact.
Kilgore, who spent his first seven career seasons with the 49ers, must now submit two negative tests the day before he is cleared to come off of the reserve/COVID-19 list.
Timeline wise, that means he could be able to travel to Tampa on Saturday, a source tells NBC Sports Bay Area’s Matt Maiocco, making him available to play in Super Bowl LV against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
