Some notes

  • The only player that will not be available to the Chiefs against the Bengals will be wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hamstring), whom the team has listed as out. Left guard Joe Thuney (ankle) and safety Juan Thornhill (calf) will return to the lineup after not playing last week.
  • There had been uncertainty regarding the status of running back Jerick McKinnon (hamstring), who missed the first two practices of the week, but after a full practice on Friday, he is good to go — likely ending any speculation that practice-squad back Melvin Gordon could be called up for the game.
  • On the Bengals’ side, wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase (hip) and running back Joe Mixon (concussion) are questionable, though word is that they are both “tracking to play.”
