Here is the Chiefs’ first official injury report of the week:
- Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said this about outside linebacker Justin Houston on Wednesday: “Justin is making progress, yeah. He is going to do a little bit today. Very, very limited. But he is making progress.”
- Houston was then officially listed as did not practice. We learned from NFL Network reports on October 8 that it could be a few weeks for Houston. My gut tells me he doesn’t play against Cleveland this Sunday.
- Safety Eric Berry missed his 81st day of practice with a sore heel.
- Linebacker Anthony Hitchens has a rib contusion, center Mitch Morse is still in the concussion protocol and Frank Zombo has a hamstring strain, all per Reid.
- Wide receiver Tyreek Hill practiced fully after injuring his groin last game.
- Because safety Daniel Sorensen has yet to be placed on the active roster, he is not on the injury report. Reid: “We’ll see (on Sorensen). I’d tell you if we had to play today, he probably wouldn’t play. He is still making progress. He came out of the little bit of work that he did last week feeling good. We’ll give him a little bit more and see how he does. I’m literally taking it day by day, probably a little bit like (Anthony Hitchens), day by day.”
- Browns starting safety Damarious Randall has not had a full practice since Week 6, and he played through ankle and groin injuries last Sunday. The Browns gave him a day off Wednesday.
- It’s a similar story for Browns starting center JC Tretter, who had Wednesday and Thursday off last week before practicing limitedly Friday and ultimately playing Sunday.
