- The Chiefs are making an effort to get defensive lineman Chris Jones’ wrist healed by holding him out of practice entirely on Wednesday and Thursday. He has now missed the first two practices of the week.
- Chiefs head coach Andy Reid on Jones (from Wednesday): “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 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) returned to practice on Thursday after missing on Wednesday.
- 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.
- Defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo on Gay: “He looked good [Wedensday]. It was the first day we really had him out there. We’ll slowly get him in there, keep our fingers crossed and be hopeful there’s no setbacks and hopefully get him to the game.”
- Defensive end Frank Clark (hamstring) and cornerback Charvairus Ward (quad) continued to be full participants on Thursday. Both players have missed the previous two games but are now trending to make a return.
- Cornerback Rashad Fenton (concussion), who missed the last game in the concussion protocol, was again a full participant.
- The headliner for the Bills Thursday was linebacker Matt Milano (hamstring), who was injured in the Bills’ last game and has now missed both practice days this week.
- Defensive end Greg Rousseau (toe) was a full participant after not practicing on Wednesday.
- Other defensive names to watch for the Bills include star cornerback Tre’Davious White (shoulder) and safety Jordan Poyer (ankle), who were both limited Wednesday and Thursday. White hurt his shoulder during the Texans game, and Poyer missed the Texans game entirely due to his ankle injury.
- The offensive name to watch for the Bills is left guard Jon Feliciano (concussion), who missed the Houston game in the concussion protocol — his full participation on Thursday likely means he should be good to go against the Chiefs.
- Rotational defensive end A.J. Espinosa (foot) was added to the report with a new injury.
