Speaking to the media on Wednesday — the first day of practice leading up to the critical game against the New England Patriots on Sunday — Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid laid out where the team stands with injuries.

Defensive end Frank Clark — about whom we had precious little information after he left Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders with what was described as a shoulder injury — is practicing on Wednesday, although Reid said his participation will be limited.

Running back Darrel Williams left Sunday’s game with what appeared to be a hamstring issue. He will not practice on Wednesday — along with starting running back Damien Williams, who remains sidelined with the rib injury he suffered in the Week 11 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers.

Also on the sideline for Wednesday: rookie cornerback Rashad Fenton, who is listed with the hamstring injury he sustained against the Raiders.

New on the list is veteran cornerback Morris Claiborne, whom the Chiefs are keeping out of practice with a shoulder injury.

As our in-house sports medicine expert Aaaron Borgmann noted in his tweet, up to now, we have been unaware of any injury for Claiborne on Sunday. The fact he is being held completely out of practice suggests it could be a relatively serious problem.

But as Andy Reid would say... we’ll see.
