Some notes

  • As was expected following Chiefs head coach Andy Reid’s press conference earlier in the day, only two players on the team’s 53-man roster did not practice — defensive end Mike Danna (calf) and kicker Harrison Butker (left ankle). Danna was spotted watching practice without a helmet while Butker was not in attendance. Find the latest commentary on Butker’s injury here.
  • Only one Chiefs player was limited on Wednesday: wide receiver Mecole Hardman, who injured his heel in the Chiefs’ Week 2 Thursday Night Football win over the Los Angeles Chargers.
  • The Colts are a team on the mend, with two of their most important players (who missed Week 2) practicing on Wednesday: wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. (quad) — who was limited — and linebacker Shaquille Leonard (back), who was a full participant. Many have believed Pittman is in line for a breakout season, and Leonard is one of the best defensive players in the game — period. Leonard going on Sunday would mark his season debut.
  • Two starting members of the Colts’ front seven — defensive tackle DeForest Buckner (hip) and defensive end Yannick Ngakoue (back) — are players to watch after being limited on Wednesday.
