Chiefs' Todd Haley Still Unsure If Jonathan Baldwin Is Playing

The story line of the week for the Kansas City Chiefs is the possible debut of WR Jonathan Baldwin. The Chiefs first round pick has been out since mid-August when he suffered a thumb injury in an altercation with RB Thomas Jones.

We've been tracking Baldwin's status since then. It started when Todd Haley said on Sirius on Wednesday that Baldwin would be a full participant in practice and then Baldwin went out and did participate fully on both Wednesday and Thursday (and presumably later today). He's also talked publicly a little bit media this week.

Since we've been tracking his progress, here's what Haley had to say yesterday when asked about him playing on Sunday. Via KCChiefs.com:

"I don't know that yet. We're working through roster numbers and all those things each night to try to sort through. We've got to have the best 46 guys out there that give us the best chance to win in all areas - offense, defense and special teams. So, we'll see. Like I said, he's had two really good days, so that's been really, really encouraging to everybody."

It would be disappointing if he weren't on the field considering our hopes have been raised with the Chiefs talking about the possibility of him playing. I would guess, after the way Haley has talked this week, that Baldwin plays on Sunday....but that's just a guess.
