The Kansas City Chiefs injury report doubled on Friday from one to two players but one of those players, RB Dexter McCluster, missed practice for non-injury related reasons. So, really, KC has one player on the injury report entering the Monday Night Football game against the San Diego Chargers.
Per usual, the Chiefs' opponent has a lot more injuries. Only two of them -- DE Luis Castillo and G Kris Dielman -- have been confirmed as out for this game. There are 11 players total on the injury report.
Here's a look at all of them:
Did not practice: DE Luis Castillo (tibia), G Kris Dielman (concussion), TE Antonio Gates (foot), LB Shaun Phillips (foot), RB Mike Tolbert (hamstring).
Limited practice: WR Malcolm Floyd (hip), RB Jacob Hester (foot), S Darrell Stuckey (groin).
Full practice: RB Ryan Mathews (thumb), OT Marcus McNeill (neck), C Scott Mruczkowski (neck).
Castillo and Dielman are confirmed to be out. It sure sounds like Gates will be playing on Monday while Phillips and Tolbert are not expected to play. Those are a couple of big-time injuries to keep an eye on. Tolbert catches a lot of balls out of the backfield things get a little easier on the Chiefs defense.
The big question here is Floyd and he returned to practice Friday on a limited basis with some San Diego reporters thinking he'll be ready to play. We'll know more today.
McNeill's status was up in the air earlier in the week but the San Diego media is now saying he'll probably play.
