Chiefs long snapper James Winchester expected to play vs. Bucs

James Winchester is expected to play on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

According to the KC Star’s Terez Paylor, Winchester was at his father’s funeral on Saturday in Oklahoma but will be back in KC to play on Sunday against the Bucs.

Also coming back from Oklahoma will be Chiefs GM John Dorsey who was in attendance, per Winchester’s agent.

This is a tough deal for Winchester whose father was tragically shot and killed in Oklahoma City last week. I can see how you would want to go back to what’s familiar which for him is football.
