Some notes

  • As expected, the only Chiefs player who has officially been ruled out for the game is tight end Jody Fortson (elbow); defensive tackle Khalen Saunders (illness) is doubtful after being out with an illness all week.
  • Defensive end Mike Danna (illness) and safety/special teams ace Deon Bush (illness) are questionable, but it is a good sign that they were both full practice participants on Thursday.
  • As a reminder: Wide receiver Mecole Hardman partook in practice all of this week, but he remains on injured reserve, so Kansas City does not have to list him on the report. The same is true for tight end Blake Bell. Head coach Andy Reid made it sound more likely that Bell would be activated than Hardman (more on that here).
  • For the Seahawks, wide receiver Tyler Lockett (out) has been confirmed to be out, spoiling his potential homecoming of sorts. Safety Ryan Neal (knee) is also out, which is noteworthy
  • The questionable Seahawks are all players to watch — especially at the running back position, which includes Kenneth Walker III (ankle/back) and DeeJay Dallas (ankle). Travis Homer could play a big role if both Walker and Dallas cannot go. On Thursday, head coach Pete Carroll said that all four are expected to play.
