Each practice day of the season, the Kansas City Chiefs release an official injury report leading up to the next game. This week, the Chiefs are on the road to play the Denver Broncos on Sunday at 3:25 p.m. Arrowhead Time.
Here is the Chiefs’ first official injury report of the week:
- 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.
