Here is the Chiefs’ first official injury report of the week:

Some notes

  • As to be expected, linebacker Nick Bolton (wrist) did not practice after having surgery to repair his dislocated wrist. The expectation right now is that the Chiefs will place him on injured reserve (IR), but that has not happened at the time of this writing, so he still appears on the report.
  • Wide receiver Justin Watson (elbow) returned to practice as a full participant, a good sign for his availability against the Broncos after he missed last week’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chiefs did not place Watson on IR, indicating they believed he would be available within the one-to-three-game window.
  • The lone player to watch for the Broncos is safety Justin Simmons (hip), who was limited on Wednesday.
