Some notes

  • So...where is everybody? As a reminder, players on the Reserve/COVID-19 list do not appear on the injury report, as they are not on the active 53-man roster. At the time of this writing, the Chiefs’ Reserve/COVID-19 list contains nine players, leaving a bare injury report. The Steelers currently list six players on their Reserve/COVID-19 list.
  • Back from the Reserve/COVID-19 list, defensive lineman Chris Jones and cornerback Charvarius Ward (non-injury related) were limited. Defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo noted the Chiefs were simply easing them back in after time away from the club. He expects them to return to full status on Friday.
  • Offensive lineman Andrew Wylie (knee) was a full participant for the second straight day. As it stands, Wylie would start at right tackle this Sunday if Lucas Niang remains on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
  • Another item to note, again: Any player receiving injury treatment needs to appear on the injury report, so long as he is on the active roster. What that also means is we won’t know which Reserve/COVID-19 players may have been limited or not practicing due to injury this week.
  • Where is DE Josh Kaindoh? Even though Kaindoh is officially designated to return from injured reserve, he is still on the injured reserve list and does not appear on the injury report.
  • The Steelers have had two players of note not practicing this week — tight end Pat Freiermuth (concussion) and defensive end Chris Wormley (groin). Both players suffered injuries in the Steelers’ previous game against the Tennessee Titans.
  • Cornerback Joe Haden was back after he received a veteran’s day off on Wednesday.
