Some notes

  • Two Chiefs were held out of practice on Thursday — one was expected, in placekicker Harrison Butker (left ankle) and one was not-so-expected, in wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling (abdomen).
  • Two key defensive players for the Chiefs returned to the field Thursday in defensive tackle Chris Jones (personal) and defensive end Mike Danna (calf). We have more on their returns and their importance to the team here.
  • It is worth noting that Danna and wide receiver Mecole Hardman (heel) were limited.
  • The changes for the Buccaneers Thursday were an upgrade for rookie defensive lineman Logan Hall (groin), who was a full participant and tracking to play, whereas wide receiver Chris Godwin (hamstring/rest) was held out. Godwin’s possible return is something to watch, as he is one of quarterback Tom Brady’s most reliable receivers — and one of the best pass-catchers in the NFL.
  • Left tackle Donovan Smith (elbow) and wide receivers Julio Jones (knee) and Russell Gage (hamstring) stayed limited. Wide receiver Breshad Perriman (knee/hamstring) and defensive end Akiem Hicks (foot) remained out of practice.
