Andrew Wylie not practicing Wednesday, everyone else is on the field

Head coach Andy Reid says only one player is being held out of Wednesday’s practice session

On Wednesday, the Kansas City Chiefs began their normal practice schedule for this weekend’s game against the Chicago Bears — a routine that includes a media appearance with head coach Andy Reid.

Reid had very good news on the injury front.

Left guard Andrew Wylie left Sunday’s 23-3 victory over the Denver Broncos with an ankle injury. He is also reported to be sick. According to Reid, he is the only player not expected to participate in Wednesday’s practice.

This means that cornerbacks Rashad Fenton and Morris Claiborne — both injured in the Week 13 victory against the Oakland Raiders — will be practicing in some fashion, along with running back Damien Williams, who has now missed three games after suffering a rib injury in the win against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 11.

Neither of the cornerbacks practiced at all during last week’s preparation for the Broncos game, but Williams had two practices with limited participation on Wednesday and Thursday before being held out of Friday’s session. He ended the week with a questionable designation for Sunday’s game, but was made inactive before kickoff.

As for defensive end Frank Clark — who spent time in the hospital last week as doctors tried to figure out what had made him so ill during the last two weeks — Reid expressed confidence.

While playing sick in the last two games, Clark has had five tackles (two for loss) a sack and three quarterback hits. If he has put the illness behind him, that is excellent news.
