Each practice day of the season, the Kansas City Chiefs release an official injury report leading up to the next game. This week, the Chiefs host the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday at Noon Arrowhead Time.
Here is the Chiefs’ first official injury report of the week:
|Kenneth Walker III||RB||Ankle||DNP||-||-||-|
- The injury report is as expected based upon the comments of Chiefs head coach Andy Reid earlier on Tuesday. Reid addressed the issues with tight end Jody Fortson (elbow), defensive tackle Chris Jones (illness), defensive tackle Khalen Saunders (illness) and defensive end Mike Danna (illness).
- Tuesday marked the first full practice for wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hamstring) since his return.
- As a reminder: Wide receiver Mecole Hardman partook in his fourth straight practice, but he remains on injured reserve, so Kansas City does not have to list him on the report. The same is the case for tight end Blake Bell, who is also back to practice.
- For the Seahawks, a number of significant players did not practice on Tuesday: tight end Noah Fant (knee), running back Kenneth Walker III (ankle), wide receiver Tyler Lockett (hand), safety Ryan Neal (knee), nose tackle Al Woods (achilles) and running back DeeJay Dallas (ankle).
- Woods and Dallas both missed the Week 15 game against the San Francisco 49ers. On Monday, Lockett had surgery on his hand. He is not expected to play against the Chiefs.
