Some Notes

  • The Chiefs decided to make an effort to get defensive lineman Chris Jones’ wrist healed by holding him out of practice entirely on Wednesday.
  • Chiefs head coach Andy Reid on Jones: “I think it’s a distraction for him, so we’re trying to give him time to let it go [Wednesday]. He’s not going to practice [Wednesday]. So, we’ll see how he does, but that’s kind of where we’re at, just take it day by day and see how he does.”
  • Jones not practicing is not ideal, but he has still played the past few weeks despite being limited in practice, so we’ll see if he goes against Buffalo on Sunday night. Safety Armani Watts (illness) also missed practice entirely.
  • Where’s Willie Gay Jr.? The injury report still does not include Gay (toe), as he remains on injured reserve despite his designation to return. He has to be placed back on the 53-man roster to make the official injury report.
  • The good news for the Chiefs on Wednesday is that defensive end Frank Clark (hamstring) and cornerback Charvairus Ward (quad) were full participants. Both players have missed the previous two games but are now trending to make a return.
  • Cornerback Rashad Fenton (concussion), who missed last game in the concussion protocol, was also a full participant.
  • The Bills began the week with a lengthy injury report — 12 names to be exact (which did include two veteran rest days).
  • The headliner for the Bills Wednesday was linebacker Matt Milano (hamstring), who did not practice. Milano reportedly worked off to the side after being injured in the Bills’ previous game against the Houston Texans. Defensive end Greg Rousseau (toe) also did not practice.
  • Other defensive names to watch for the Bills include star cornerback Tre’Davious White (shoulder) and safety Jordan Poyer (ankle), who were both limited to start the practice week. White hurt his shoulder during the Texans game and wore a red, non-contact jersey. Poyer missed the Texans game entirely due to his ankle injury but was reportedly moving well on Wednesday.
  • The offensive name to watch for the Bills is left guard Jon Feliciano (concussion), who missed the Houston game in the concussion protocol — but limited participation on Wednesday likely means he is on his way back.
