Mike Remmers out
Reid first noted that offensive lineman Mike Remmers had been ruled out for the game after he missed practice all week. Remmers, who had started the previous two games at right tackle, was replaced by rookie Lucas Niang.
“Lucas obviously worked hard to get himself back and ready to go,” said Reid. “There were a couple techniques that he needed to work on, fundamentals, and he did that. I thought he played very respectable this past week, Monday night.”
Melvin Ingram in
There had been a question earlier in the week as to whether defensive end Melvin Ingram would make his debut against the Packers. The answer is yes, according to Reid.
“He’ll be up and we’ll have a few plays for him,” confirmed the head coach. “He’s looked good. He’s done a nice job.”
The Chiefs traded a conditional sixth-round NFL Draft pick to the Pittsburgh Steelers for Ingram hours before the league’s 2021 deadline. The defensive end, who had a sack and 11 pressures in six games for the Steelers, will wear No. 24 for the Chiefs.
