Some notes

  • Safety Tyrann Mathieu (concussion) made his return to the field on Thursday and was a full participant on that day and on Friday. Although he remains in the concussion protocol, this is a great sign he is continuing to progress toward playing in the AFC Championship on Sunday. He is officially listed as questionable.
  • Chiefs head coach Andy Reid on Mathieu: “We think he’ll be ready to roll here in a day or so. But we’ll see [Saturday].”
  • The status of running back Darrel Williams (toe) remains up in the air. Williams was limited Thursday and Friday after being a full participant on Wednesday. Like Mathieu, he is questionable.
  • Reid on Williams: “I think he’s going to be OK. We’re limiting him ourselves, not him limiting himself. We just don’t want his toe to flare up. It’s been great so far, so we want to keep it that way.”
  • Rashad Fenton (back) — who has missed the last two games but was a full practice participant all three days this week — will play against Cincinnati.
  • On the Bengals side, Cam Sample (groin), a rotational defensive end, and wide receiver Stanley Morgan (groin), one of the Bengals’ gunners, are doubtful to play. Josh Tupou (knee), a rotational defensive tackle, is questionable.
