Andy Reid provides injury updates on 5 Chiefs to start the week

The Chiefs head coach had some good news — and he had some bad news.

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid had “nothing to report” regarding injuries after their 36-35 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night. He did mention a couple of players got “nicked up but not bad.”

Reid provided greater clarity on those players when he greeted the media on Wednesday.

The bad news for the Chiefs is that running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire is dealing with an illness, tight end Blake Bell hurt his ankle, defensive lineman Chris Jones hurt his wrist and defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi is continuing to nurse a hip flexor issue that first revealed itself in mid-August.

Reid said linebacker Anthony Hitchens had what he referred to as “minor surgery” to remove “fatty tissue” on Monday.

“It was an in-and-out deal,” noted Reid. “Don’t take it wrong.”

And that is part of the good news: that Hitchens — along with the rest of the players listed by the head coach — will practice in some capacity on Wednesday.

The Chiefs will host the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday at Noon in their Week 3 matchup. The Chiefs will release their initial injury report of the week later on Wednesday afternoon.
