Here is the Chiefs’ first official injury report of the week:
- Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was asked about wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who missed practice Wednesday due to a hamstring issue. Hill first appeared on the injury report because of the hamstring issue last Wednesday.
- Reid on Hill: “We’re taking Tyreek day by day. His hamstring tightened up on him a little bit during the game. I think he’s going to be fine, I just wanted to make sure that thing gets a rest here [Wednesday], and then we’ll just see how it goes [Thursday]. So, if he needs a rest [Thursday], we’ll rest him [Thursday], but he went through the walkthrough and did all that, so I think he’s going to be OK.”
- Reid added that linebacker Damien Wilson (knee), who has missed two games, is “day to day” and the team does not expect to have running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) this week against Atlanta.
- Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones (hamstring), who has missed the last two games, did not practice on Wednesday. Center Alex Mack (concussion) is another player to monitor.
