Feb. 5 (UPI) -- The Kansas City Chiefs activated wide receiver Demarcus Robinson off the reserve/COVID-19 list on Friday, meaning he will be available to play in Super Bowl LV on Sunday.

Robinson practiced with the Chiefs on Friday for the first time since being placed on the COVID-19 list earlier this week as a high-risk close contact. He had to test negative for five consecutive days before coming off the list.

Robinson was third on the team with 45 receptions for 466 yards and three touchdowns this season. His return could be critical for the Chiefs if veteran wideout Sammy Watkins, who is listed as questionable on the team's official injury report with a calf injury, is unable to suit up for Sunday's championship game.

The Chiefs also listed starting offensive tackle Eric Fisher (Achilles) and linebacker Willie Gay Jr. (knee/ankle) as out for the game.

Meanwhile, Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver Antonio Brown is officially listed as questionable for the Super Bowl. He was a full participant Thursday and Friday, an indication that he might return after missing last week's NFC Championship Game victory over the Green Bay Packers.

Brown sustained a knee injury in the Buccaneers' divisional-round win over the New Orleans Saints. He didn't travel to Green Bay for the NFC title game.

The Bucs also listed tight end Cameron Brate as questionable on the final injury report. He suffered a strained back muscle Thursday and missed Friday's practice, but he is expected to play Sunday.
