Some notes

  • Neither the Chargers nor the Chiefs practiced on Monday. Monday’s report is an estimation.
  • Chiefs wide receiver Josh Gordon was added to the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday, as was Chargers left tackle Rashawn Slater. Neither player appears on the injury report while on the list. A total of 36 players across the league were added to the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday.
  • Two Chiefs wouldn’t have practiced Monday if there was a workout: cornerback L’Jarius Sneed (personal) and safety Tyrann Mathieu (other), though neither absence would have been injury-related.
  • Offensive lineman Lucas Niang (ribs), defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi (elbow), linebacker Nick Bolton (wrist) and cornerback Rashad Fenton (knee) would have all been limited.
  • Eight Chargers wouldn’t have practiced on Monday — tight end Jared Cook (quad), tight end Donald Parham Jr. (knee), running back Austin Ekeler (ankle), wide receiver Mike Williams (heel), defensive lineman Justin Jones (ankle/knee), defensive lineman Linval Joseph (shoulder), safety Alohi Gilman (quad), safety Derwin James Jr. (hamstring) and defensive back Trey Marshall (ankle/hand).
  • Cornerback Asante Samuel Jr. (concussion) would have been limited.
  • Tuesday’s injury report is worth paying attention to, as the teams will actually work out. This should provide us with a better idea of who may be available on Thursday night.
