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 host the Green Bay Packers at 3:25 p.m. Arrowhead Time.

Here is the Chiefs’ second official injury report of the week:

Chiefs

Packers

Some notes:

  • The Chiefs had little change to their injury report from Wednesday. Linebacker Anthony Hitchens remained on the practice field after missing the last two games with a triceps contusion.
  • Right tackle Mike Remmers (knee) did not practice for the second straight day after missing the team’s game against the New York Giants. Remmers had started the previous two games and was replaced by this season’s original starter, Lucas Niang, against New York.
  • Defensive lineman Chris Jones (back/wrist) was upgraded to a full participant Thursday after being limited on Wednesday, a great sign for his Sunday status. Last week, the Chiefs’ listed him with groin and wrist issues; this week, his back is also listed. Jones is playing through torn ligaments in his wrist and doubts he will be 100% this season.
  • Where is Aaron Rodgers? Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers does not appear on the injury report since he is on the reserve/COVID-19 list. He has already been ruled out for the game.
  • Wide receiver Davante Adams is officially off the reserve/COVID-19 list and is expected to play on Sunday. He missed the Packers’ last game — a win over the Arizona Cardinals.
  • Packers defensive lineman Dean Lowry (hamstring) was upgraded to a limited participant. Lowry is having a solid year for Green Bay when it comes to rushing the passer (8 QB pressures, 3.0 sacks). Fellow defensive lineman Kingsley Keke (concussion) did not practice for the second straight day.
  • The Packers lost Robert Tonyan (knee) for the season in last week’s game, which makes tight end Josiah Deguara (finger) a player to keep an eye on. Marcedes Lewis projects to be the next tight end up — it’s worth noting that the Packers gave him a rest day.
