The Kansas City Chiefs appear to have avoided any serious injuries after their 23-20 victory over the San Diego Chargers but they didn't come out completely unscathed.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said TE Travis Kelce has a sore rib, mostly up in the cartilage area, according to Reid. "We just have to see how he does here but I think he'll be OK as we go," Reid said. It didn't sound like it was something serious but we'll just have to see how he does this week. I don't have to tell you how important Kelce is to the Chiefs passing offense.

Also hurt on Sunday was Junior Hemingway, who strained his hamstring. That's a day to day injury so the Chiefs are hoping he can improve to the point where he will be available this weekend.

Reid also said that Joe Mays, who was placed on short term IR before the season, is eligible to practice this week but they are not likely to start practicing him yet. He just had the screws taken out of his wrist so the Chiefs want to rehab that more before putting him on the field.

The other injury updates remain the same. Eric Berry (ankle) and Chris Owens (knee) are making progress while Donnie Avery continues to rehab from his sports hernia surgery.
