Some good news and some bad news on the Kansas City Chiefs first injury report for Oakland Raiders week. Since this is a short week and the Chiefs are on the road, we've really only got Monday and Tuesday practices with Wednesday as a travel day.
The good news is that TE Anthony Fasano returned to practice which is a hopeful sign for his availability on Thursday night. Fasano missed his first game of the season last weekend against Seattle with a knee injury. More good news is that CB Jamell Fleming put in a full practice which suggests he could be back. Fleming was a surprise starter for the Chiefs in Week 8 against the Rams but a hamstring injury has kept him out since this. Here's to hoping he makes his return this week which gives the Chiefs even more depth at cornerback.
The bad news is that WRs AJ Jenkins and Donnie Avery did not practice. That would mean another week with Frankie Hammond seeing significant snaps. Also not good is that CB Chris Owens missed practice. He injured his knee in Week 5 and came back a couple of weeks ago only to land back on the injury report again.
TE Travis Kelce has been a full participant in practice with a rib injury for a few weeks now. This week the Chiefs added a shoulder injury to that. He will play so there's no concern there but Kelce is clearly taking a bit of a beating as the season goes on.
Here's the Monday practice report.
