Speaking with the press on Wednesday, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes said his right hand — bruised during Sunday’s 23-16 victory over the New England Patriots — is feeling better, and will see what he can do during Wednesday’s practice session as the team begins preparation for this Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos at Arrowhead.

According to head coach Andy Reid, running back Damien Williams — who has missed two games with the bruised ribs he sustained in the game against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 11 — will also be testing the waters on Wednesday.

Reid also said that defensive end Frank Clark — who played well on Sunday after missing all three practice days last week — will not practice on Wednesday.

Two of the practice days Clark missed last week were due to being down with the flu — or at least that’s what Clark and the Chiefs thought. He still wasn’t feeling well in Foxborough on Sunday, but played anyway. Now there is concern that something else could be going on, so Clark is seeing a specialist.
Reid also said that cornerbacks Rashad Fenton and Morris Claiborne will also miss Wednesday’s practice.

Both cornerbacks were inactive on Sunday and are continuing to recover from injuries. Fenton suffered a hamstring injury against the Oakland Raiders; Claiborne injured his shoulder in the same game.
