Some notes

  • Three Chiefs have been listed as questionable for Sunday’s game: starting MIKE linebacker Nick Bolton (ankle), defensive tackle Matt Dickerson (knee) and tackle Wanya Morris (hip).
  • Bolton was again a limited participant in Friday’s practice. He did not participate on Monday after missing the last two games. On Thursday, defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo indicated that Bolton’s playing status would be a gametime decision.
  • Dickerson was upgraded to limited after being held out on both Wednesday and Thursday.
  • Morris was upgraded to being a full participant after being limited on Thursday
  • Wide receiver Kadarius Toney (toe) and defensive tackle Chris Jones (groin) were full participants in all of this week’s practices after being limited for every Week 4 practice. After being limited with a shoulder issue on Monday, cornerback Jaylen Watson was a full participant on both Thursday and Friday. All three players are good to go for Sunday’s game.
  • Minnesota’s starting center Garrett Bradbury was once again a full participant on Friday. He has no injury designation — and should therefore be expected to play.
  • Vikings’ Linebacker Marcus Davenport (ankle) has been declared questionable for the game — even though he was upgraded to full participation in Friday’s practice. The Athletic’s Alec Lewis told the “Arrowhead Pride Interview Series” that he anticipates Davenport will play on Sunday.
  • Three other Minnesota players have been listed as questionable for the game: backup quarterback Nick Mullens (back), linebacker Brian Asamoah II (toe) and safety Lewis Cine (hamstring) were all limited in every one of this week’s practices.
