The Kansas City Chiefs could have a couple of rookies seeing more action against the Chicago Bears.

The injury report lists LB Josh Mauga as out with a groin / Achilles injury. He did not practice all week so rookie LB Ramik Wilson should be ready to replace him. There was a tight position battle between the two this summer, which Mauga ended up winning. Wilson replaced him last week when Mauga went down during the Bengals game and had a bit of a rough go at it but it's tough to judge him too much coming in in the middle of the game in the first month of his rookie season. Let's see how he does with a full week of prep.

The injury report also lists WR Albert Wilson as questionable with a shoulder injury. Wilson was limited in practice throughout the week, just like he was last week when he didn't play. If he can't go, WR Chris Conley will see more snaps at receiver. Conley, like Ramik Wilson last week, looked like a receiver but give him time and he has some potential.

The Chiefs also list TEs Travis Kelce and James O'Shaughnessy as probable after practicing all week. Kelce had a groin / thumb injury and O'Shaughnessy had a hand injury.

The Bears have a whole bunch of people on the injury report. Check all that out at Windy City Gridiron.
