The matchup between the Las Vegas Raiders and the Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday is one of the most anticipated football games of the season. However, it’s not going to come easily for the NFL. First, the Chiefs had to put two starting offensive linemen on the COVID-19 list and now the Raiders have put several key defensive players on the list, as well.
Included on the list was defensive back Johnathan Abram, who has been on the team’s most important defensive players this year. This is already his second time on the list but he hasn’t tested positive before. While he’s going to miss practice this week, it looks like he still has a good chance of playing. In a comment on an Instagram post, Abram made his plan very clear.

Abram hasn’t been perfect this year and can sometimes get over-aggressive but the Raiders need him. He brings so much energy and swagger to the defense. The Chiefs have the best passing attack in the NFL and having Abram on the field gives the team a better chance to at least get a couple of stops.
