Some notes

  • Only one Chiefs player has already been ruled out: wide receiver Skyy Moore, who suffered a hand laceration (that needed stitches) in Week 17’s game against the Denver Broncos.
  • There are four Chiefs who are questionable: wide receiver Mecole Hardman (pelvis), left guard Joe Thuney (ankle), cornerback L’Jarius Sneed (hip) and kicker Harrison Butker (back). All of the questionable players put in limited practices on Thursday.
  • Thuney missed two games when he last injured his ankle, so his status is to be determined. I think it’s likely that Sneed plays through his hip issue.
  • Head coach Andy Reid on Hardman’s possible activation including some sort of snap count: “Mecole practiced [Thursday], and we’ll just see about him. He’s day-to-day as we go here... I’d never put Mecole in a bad position. It would be very familiar to what Toney went through. If it’s three snaps, it’s three snaps. If it’s five snaps, it’s five snaps. I know he’s going to want to go — I know that. He loves to play, and so I’m going to be holding him back I’m sure when we get to that point.”
  • Reid on Butker: “Butker did practice today, so that’s a good thing. There’s a chance we could bring somebody in, just as a precautionary measure.”
  • The Chiefs reportedly brought kicker Matthew Wright — who made two starts for the Chiefs earlier this year when Butker was out with injury — in for a tryout on Thursday.
  • Quarterback Jarrett Stidham (rt. elbow and wide receiver Davante Adams (illness) are good to go Saturday, but NFL rushing leader Josh Jacobs (hip/oblique/pers) is questionable. Jacobs did not practice Wednesday or Thursday.
