Some notes

  • Cornerback and special-teams ace Chris Lammons missed his second straight day of practice, while cornerback Rashad Fenton (knee) and right tackle Lucas Niang (ribs) practiced again on Thursday — though they were limited.
  • Niang’s status is significant since last week, the Chiefs shut him down after his Wednesday workout. This likely means things are trending in a better direction for the rookie this week.
  • As a reminder, defensive end Josh Kaindoh (high ankle), running back Jerick McKinnon (hamstring), offensive lineman Mike Remmers (knee) and defensive tackle Khalen Saunders (knee) are on injured reserve, so they do not appear on the injury report.
  • The key Raiders injury is that of tight end Darren Waller (knee/back), who missed the team’s last game. Waller did not practice the past two days and Las Vegas is considering him “day to day.” At this time, it seems unlikely that he will practice or play this week.
  • Two other key players to watch for the Raiders are defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson (back) and linebacker Denzel Perryman (ankle). Both missed practice on Wednesday to begin the week, but Jefferson returned to limited work Thursday.
  • Linebacer Cory Littleton (shoulder), another talented defensive player for the Raiders, has been limited in both workouts this week.
