Each practice day of the season, the Kansas City Chiefs release an official injury report leading up to the next game. This week, the Chiefs are on the road against the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday Night Football.
Here is the Chiefs’ final injury report of the week with official designations:
- The Chiefs have ruled two players out — right tackle Mitchell Schwartz (back) and defensive end Taco Charlton (fractured ankle).
- Chiefs head coach Andy Reid noted that Alex Okafor (ankle) returned to practice on Wednesday. Both Okafor and cornerback L’Jarius Sneed (shoulder) don’t appear on the injury report, as Kansas City has yet to activate them from injured reserve. But it sounds like as least Sneed will make his return on Sunday night.
- Chiefs head coach Andy Reid on Sneed: “There’s a good chance he’s up. He’s looked good moving around — real good, actually. So, we’ll see how he does and how many plays and all that, but there’s a pretty good chance he’s up, yes.”
- The two players who did not practice for the Chiefs on Thursday due to illness — running backs Darrel Williams (illness) and Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) — were back to practice Friday and are good to go in the game.
- Offensive lineman Mike Remmers (rib) is officially questionable. Remmers built up to a full participation on Friday. Wide receiver Sammy Watkins (hamstring) was downgraded to out for the game on Saturday.
- Anyone currently on the reserve/COVID-19 list does not appear on the injury report. This includes Martinas Rankin, as well as wide receiver Mecole Hardman. At this point, it does not seem like they will be able to play.
- On the Raiders side, defensive tackle Maurice Hurst (ankle) is questionable and left tackle Kolton Miller (ankle) is set to make his return. Backup running back Jalen Richard (chest) is also questionable.
- As noted this week, the Raiders have many key players on their COVID-19 list, so we will have to wait and see who is activated throughout the weekend.
The Raiders have already activated DB Lamarcus Joyner from the COVID-19 list, one of their starters placed on the list this week. Others expected off tomorrow.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) November 20, 2020
Meanwhile, the Ravens have placed QB Trace McSorley on the COVID-19 list.
