Some notes

  • Kansas City Chiefs backup center/guard Austin Blythe (sports hernia) was upgraded to limited participation after missing practice completely on Wednesday. If Blythe cannot play, Nick Allegretti should be in line to back up Creed Humphrey in case of injury.
  • It seems there is no need to worry about wide receiver Mecole Hardman (hip), who was upgraded to full participation after limited participation on Wednesday.
  • Safety Tyrann Mathieu does not appear on the injury report, as his continued presence on the Reserve/COVID-19 list does not count for a Chiefs’ roster spot on their 53.
  • Frank Clark (hamstring) and defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi (hip) remained limited participants.
  • Defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo on Clark: “Frank’s really like Tyrann, where you haven’t practiced for a long time. You want to be careful getting him in the game, so we’ll tread lightly with the number of plays. We’re optimistic we can get him for Sunday, but we won’t know that until the end of the week. Hopefully, no setbacks.”
  • There was no change for the Browns from Wednesday’s injury report on Thursday, except for the addition of backup linebacker Tony Fields II (illness). Odell Beckham Jr. (knee), cornerbacks Troy Hill (hamstring) and Greedy Williams (groin) and center JC Tretter (knee) remain the Browns players to watch.
  • It should be noted that the illness tied to pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney is not COVID, and Cleveland expects him back in the mix Friday or Saturday.
