Some notes

  • The Chiefs have listed only two players as questionable for their game against the Houston Texans: wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hamstring) and defensive tackle Chris Jones (illness).
  • Toney hasn’t played since Week 11 when he injured his hamstring. He had limited practices all week, so it is unclear if this will be the week.
  • Head coach Andy Reid on Toney: “We’ll just see how he made it through today and where we go from there.”
  • Reid added that there is no concern for quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who was listed on the injury report with a “right hand” issue this week. Reid confirmed the quarterback’s right thumb was tender — but that he threw all week. It sounds like Mahomes’ status on the injury report was simply precautionary.
  • Jones came down with an illness on Friday, his only missed practice of the week. Newcomer Brandon Williams may see more time against the Texans if Jones cannot play.
  • Defensive back Nazeeh Johnson (hamstring), who was limited on Wednesday, is good to go against the Texans. Defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi (Achilles), who was added to the injury report on Thursday, is also good to go.
  • As a reminder: Wide receiver Mecole Hardman practiced for the third straight day, but he remains on injured reserve, so Kansas City does not have to list him on the report. Reid said he is leaning away from Hardman making his return this week.
  • On the Texans’ side, it had been thought that wide receiver Brandin Cooks (calf) might be available for Sunday’s game after being upgraded to a limited practice on Thursday — but he has now been declared out for the game. Wide receiver Nico Collins (foot) is also out — so for another week, Houston will be without its best wideouts.
  • Other significant players who are out for Sunday: running back Dameon Pierce (ankle), cornerback Steven Nelson (foot), cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. (hamstring) and defensive tackle Taylor Stallworth (calf).
  • Guard Kenyon Green (ankle) will not dress for the game after again being limited in Friday’s practice. Guard Justin McCray (hamstring) was downgraded to limited on Friday — and is now questionable for the game.
