New, comments

Jacksonville will be rather inexperienced at left tackle on Sunday. Kansas City has two players questionable.

Each practice day, the Kansas City Chiefs will release an official injury report leading up to the next game. The Chiefs take on the Jacksonville Jaguars at TIAA Bank Field on Sunday at Noon Arrowhead Time.

Here is the Chiefs’ final injury report of the week:

Jaguars

Some notes

  • On the Chiefs’ side, head coach Andy Reid said safety Jordan Lucas had back spasms, so he was held out of practice and is listed as questionable. Lucas may have been inactive for the Chiefs, anyway, but we’ll see what happens on Sunday. Defensive tackle Xavier Williams was sick, and Reid said, “We should be OK there.” Defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo has said he does not see much separation between Willams and Derrick Nnadi, so if Williams can’t go, that might simply mean more reps for Nnadi.
  • The Jaguars have more pressing issues when it comes to injuries. Jaguars starting left tackle Cam Robinson’s right knee reportedly “just gave out” Friday, per ESPN’s Michael DiRocco. Robinson is listed as doubtful, and the Jaguars’ swing tackle, Cedric Ogbuehi, is out with a hamstring injury. With that in mind, Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said second-year lineman Will Richardson would start at left tackle. Richardson, who had been working as a guard in the NFL but played right tackle at NC State, has never played an NFL snap in his career.

Richardson will likely be assigned to block Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark most of the game. I asked Clark about the news following Chiefs practice.

CLARK: “That sucks. You never want to see a guy injured or hurt in any sport, especially a great competitor. Cam, I’ve had the chance to play him once, when I was in Seattle, when we played Jacksonville two years ago. He’s a great competitor and a guy I look forward to going against. Hopefully, his injury, he could get that better over the next few weeks. I hope his doctors and stuff can handle that — to make sure he gets back into action. But the football game is serious; it’s tough, and it takes a toll on you sometimes. Myself, just being able to go out there, no matter who it is, whether it’s Cam or it’s his backup or his backup, I’m giving my all. I don’t push the brakes for nobody. At the end of the day, everybody’s a victim in my eyes.”

  • Jaguars backup tight end Josh Oliver is out with a hamstring injury. Defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, who is questionable with an elbow injury, is a player to watch.
