Some notes

  • The Chiefs came out of their final regular-season game with three injuries to watch — and to start the week, all three players in question practiced in some capacity.
  • Wide receiver Tyreek Hill (heel) was listed as a full participant, and he appeared spry during the media look:
  • Top running backs Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) and Darrel Williams (toe) were limited participants. Wednesday marked Edwards-Helaire’s first practice since the Chiefs’ last game against the Steelers in Week 16. Williams practicing was a step in the right direction.
  • It is notable that Steelers running back Najee Harris (elbow) was not at practice on Wednesday. Check back for his practice status on Thursday afternoon.
  • Pittsburgh Left tackle Dan Moore Jr. (ankle) was a full participant after missing the Steelers’ final game, a sign that he will return to the lineup against the Chiefs.
  • Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (pectoral/right shoulder) being listed as limited to start the week is typical.
