The Kansas City Chiefs injury report continues to grow. Spencer Ware remains out on Thursday which continues our concern over his availability on Sunday. A new name was added today: Jeremy Maclin. He’s missing due to a sore groin.

These are both pretty significant here even if it is the Jaguars (this is how these upsets start). Ware remains in the concussion protocol. The Chiefs have recently given concussed players at least one week off (even the non-concussed Alex Smith). I’m not expecting Ware on Sunday but would be pleasantly surprised if so. Assuming Ware can’t go, expect a bigger load for Charcandrick West and new Chief Bishop Sankey.
Hoping that Maclin’s injury is just a minor deal. Andy Reid has given veterans time off for minor injuries before. The Chiefs would see a healthy dose of Chris Conley and Tyreek Hill if not.
In good injury news, DJ was back at practice.
