McGraw has been absent the past few weeks due to an ankle sprain. In hindsight, perhaps McGraw should have landed on injured reserve a few weeks ago when he suffered the injury (if he doesn't play this weekend). He was limited on Wednesday.
And Battle of course didn't practice with a foot injury. He's in a walking boot and his chances of playing on Sunday don't sound great. Some combination of Thomas Jones, Dexter McCluster and Le'Ron McClain could handle the carries if Battle is unavailable.
C Casey Wiegmann wasn't on the list after making an appearance last week.
I keep saying I want to do a quick study looking at how many players the Chiefs listed on the injury report each week versus the opponents'. It's not even close in many cases. (Sounds like an offseason project.)
