Each practice day, the Kansas City Chiefs will release an official injury report leading up to the next game. The Chiefs welcome the Los Angeles Chargers to Arrowhead Stadium on Thursday night.

Here is the Chiefs’ first official injury report of the week:


Some notes

  • As we noted Monday morning in our article on short weeks, the practice week leading up to Thursday night is mostly made up of walkthroughs and meetings so the players can simultaneously recover. Monday’s “practice report” is an indication of what each player’s status would be if it were a regular practice day.
  • The Chiefs had four players who “didn’t practice,” including three players who were injured in the game against the Ravens—Cam Erving, Tyreek Hill and Spencer Ware. Sammy Watkins “missed practice” with his foot injury dating back to the Rams game, when he last played.
  • Chiefs safety Eric Berry was considered limited. He has yet to have the “full practice” status all season.
  • Five Chargers, including running backs Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler, “did not practice.”
