The Kansas City Chiefs have been dealing with plenty of injuries as of late but today we have a couple of pieces of good news: Dee Ford’s injury is not serious and Marcus Peters is back at practice.
First, the Chiefs are saying that Ford’s hamstring injury makes him day to day, which is great news. I was fearful that it would be a longer thing. Even day to day doesn’t mean he’ll play this weekend so he’s one to monitor. He is not practicing on Wednesday.
At this point, “not out for the season” is great news considering how some of these injuries have gone.
I asked Reid if Dee Ford's injury is a long-term thing. He said he's day-to-day and is pretty upbeat.— Terez A. Paylor (@TerezPaylor) November 23, 2016
Second, Peters is back at practice after not playing last weekend. Andy Reid said it was a painful injury to his hip. If he’s back at practice already I would assume he’s in good shape to play on Sunday night. Which is great because the Chiefs really, really need him.
It’s not all good news. Jeremy Maclin (groin) remains out of practice as does Charcandrick West (concussion) and Dontari Poe. Maclin’s been out for a few weeks but Reid recently said is injury isn’t long-term so if it’s not this week then hopefully soon. If West doesn’t play, I wonder if they’ll call someone like Darrin Reaves up from the practice squad. The Chiefs just cut Bishop Sankey this week.
Dee Ford, Derrick Johnson, Jeremy Maclin, Dontari Poe, Kendall Reyes and Charcandrick West won't practice today for the Chiefs.— BJ Kissel (@ChiefsReporter) November 23, 2016
