Some notes

  • The Chiefs made the effort to get defensive lineman Chris Jones’ wrist healed by holding him out of practice all week. He is officially listed as questionable for the game.
  • Defensive end Frank Clark (hamstring) was a full participant all week and he is good to make his return to the lineup — as is cornerback Rashad Fenton (concussion), who missed the last game in the concussion protocol.
  • Cornerback Charvairus Ward (quad) was a full participant on Wednesday and Thursday and was limited on Friday. The downgrade in participation status can sometimes be a bad sign, and Ward is officially questionable for the game.
  • Where’s Willie Gay Jr.? Gay was activated to the 53-man roster on Saturday afternoon and is officially questionable for the game.
  • Chiefs head coach Andy Reid had several status notes during his meeting with the media on Friday afternoon.
  • Despite a lengthy injury report, only three Bills came out with a questionable status — most notably linebacker Matt Milano (hamstring), who was injured in the Bills’ last game and has now missed all but one practice, on Friday, when he was limited.
  • Rotational defensive end A.J. Espinosa (foot) was added to the report midweek and is also questionable.
