Was the Super Bowl in jeopardy at one point? Apparently, it all came down to some haircuts.

ESPN reports the Kansas City Chiefs were getting team haircuts last Sunday when the barber tested positive for the virus.

He was mid-haircut with backup center Daniel Kilgore when it happened. Both were wearing masks.

Kilgore and another player were put on the reserve COVID-19 list since they were in close contact.

The Chiefs had 20 people in line to get a haircut, including star quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
