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’ final injury report of the week with official injury designations:

Chiefs

Packers

Some notes:

  • Right tackle Mike Remmers (knee) did not practice for the third straight day after missing the team’s game against the New York Giants. He is out for the Packers’ game, meaning right tackle Lucas Niang will make his second straight start at right tackle (more on Niang’s progress here).
  • The only questionable player for the Chiefs is defensive tackle Khalen Saunders (knee), who also missed the last game. Saunders practicing fully all week is a good sign for his availability. Defensive end Melvin Ingram will make his Chiefs debut.
  • 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.
  • Andy Reid confirmed Friday that running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (MCL sprain) won’t come off injured reserve this week, and offensive lineman Kyle Long (tibial plateau fracture) won’t come off the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. Both players are eligible for activation but are not quite ready, per Reid.
  • Reid on Edwards-Helaire: “He’s working hard to get back. It’s just that whole healing thing that has to take place, but he’s closer than he obviously was, and we’ll just see how time handles it here in the next week or two.”
  • Reid on Long: “He’s another one that works like crazy. We’re getting there. I mean, we’re getting close. He’s not in there not because of effort, right? He’s working his tail off.”
  • 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) is officially questionable after two limited workouts to end the week. Lowry is having a solid year for Green Bay when it comes to rushing the passer (8 QB pressures, 3.0 sacks).
  • 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. Both are good to play against Kansas City after full practices Friday.
