Some notes

  • The only change to the Chiefs’ injury report on Thursday was an upgrade: linebacker Willie Gay Jr. was a full participant after being limited at practice on Wednesday. Gay is now trending to play in his second straight game since his suspension on Sunday night.
  • Tight end Jody Fortson remained out of practice, as expected.
  • As a reminder: Though offensive lineman Lucas Niang (knee) returned to practice on Wednesday, he does not appear on the injury report. He remains on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list (more on his early progress here).
  • Thursday’s injury headline for this game comes on the other side, with Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill (ankle) being downgraded to out of practice. If Tannehill cannot play, it would be rookie Malik Willis making his second consecutive start for Tennessee. Willis and the Titans beat the Texans 17-10 last week.
  • Running back Derrick Henry (foot/rest) was also downgraded to out of practice, but the term “rest” means he will more than likely be OK to play Sunday night.
  • Nose tackle Jeffery Simmons (ankle) and safety Amani Hooker (shoulder) missed their second straight practice on Thursday after suffering injuries in last week’s game against the Houston Texans. Starting left guard Aaron Brewer (toe) was upgraded to a full participant.
