Here is the Chiefs’ final injury report of the week with official designations:
- The Chiefs have five players who will almost assuredly not play. LT Eric Fisher (groin), DT Chris Jones (groin) and LB Dorian O’Daniel (hamstring) have already been ruled out and WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) and LG Andrew Wylie (ankle) — are doubtful. None of the aforementioned players practiced this week.
- WR Tyreek Hill (shoulder) and LB Anthony Hitchens (groin) were limited all week. Hill has yet to participate with a full practice designation since suffering his injury in Week 1 but this is the first time there has been a chance that he plays since Week 1. A report Friday morning claimed the Chiefs were optimistic. Hitchens, like Hill, is questionable.
- Andy Reid on Tyreek Hill: “He did OK. He did a little scout team and did a few plays with us on the offensive side. We’ll see how it all rolls down the road here. We’ve got to make sure he and the docs are good with it.”
- Only one Houston Texan has been ruled out — top backup OL Greg Mancz, who is in the concussion protocol. WR Kenny Stills (hamstring) was limited all week and is questionable— the same for RB Taiwan Jones (hip).
- Texans starting cornerback Johnathan Joseph was added to the injury report on Friday with a hamstring issue, which is never a good sign. Joseph is officially questionable, and his status is a key point to watch on Sunday.
