Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark has been ranked the No. 95 player on “The Top 100 Players of 2020.”
“He’s a guy that you know is a hard worker,” Mahomes told reporters Saturday of Edwards-Helaire. “You can tell by his demeanor. You can tell by the way he’s out there and what he does off the field and on the field. I’m excited to have him involved in the offense, now.”
“You’ve really captured the motion of what Coach Reid is about and what I’m about with coach. There are two men in this world that I’d take a bullet for; one is my dad and the other one is Andy Reid,” Burkholder said. “He’s a father figure to me. He’s been awesome in this process, but he’s also been a big red-headed bear at times because of the unknown. He likes to lay things out. He has his schedule ready in May. We’re in July and it’s just being finalized today because we just got the schedule protocols. I feel like this was a chance for me to give back to Andy Reid. He’s given me so much and taught me how to be a good athletic trainer. I often feel like we are very close, but I walk into his office on Monday mornings with problems. This was the one time in my career where I actually could give him solutions. He was struggling with the unknown from the league and I was getting information earlier because it was all medical before they involved the coaches and the general managers, but then they started bringing Andy in. He knew what the questions were going to be in those meetings. He’d call me and we’d have some late-night conversations and we’d go through phantom schedules When it was all said and done, I asked how many schedules he had. He showed me on his iPad that he had 20 different schedules. Every time they would throw us a change in the protocol, he would make a change in his schedule. He’s got it pretty mastered.”
The Browns announced they have placed running back Dontrell Hilliard and safety Jovante Moffatt on reserve/COVID-19 list. Four other players from four teams also were placed on the COVID-19 list Sunday, according to the NFL transactions report.

It’s been 57 hours since my husband was carted off the field with a compound fracture in his right leg in a Week 11 game, but now it’s Wednesday at midnight and he’s not just an injured football player — he’s the patient who’s drifting in and out of consciousness as doctors try to figure out what’s wrong. Of course, I just want to talk to Alex. But he’s … he’s not there.
After suffering from a fracture to his tibia and fibula in 2018, Smith has finally received clearance from his surgical team.
“I’m a huge Larry Duvernay-Tardif fan, and I was also raised by a doctor,” Reid began. “I understand the dedication that it takes to be a doctor, and we’re all blessed to have doctors in our lives. They’re givers. They’re not takers. They’re givers. They’re healers. They want the best for you, so Larry has that quality. And you’re seeing it to the utmost here. I just think it’s tremendous dedication to his profession, what his future is going to be, and mainly to the people that he gets to help.”
