Some notes

  • Linebacker Willie Gay Jr. (lower back) is questionable to play after practicing limitedly on Thursday and Friday. He did not practice on Wednesday while the team was still in Kansas City.
  • Running back Jerick McKinnon (groin) and punter Tommy Townsend (hand) are without a designation and good to go.
  • Andy Reid on Gay: “Willie Gay was limited today but did some things...Willie’s making progress, so he was able to do some stuff [Friday].”
  • Wide receiver Richie James (knee) logged three days as a full participant. At this time, he still remains on injured reserve. James’ questionable status suggests that the Chiefs will activate him to the 53-man roster on either Friday or Saturday. They currently have an open roster spot.
  • Reid on James: “We’ll see on that — just how that goes.”
  • On Thursday, the Chiefs declared running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) out for the game. With him being sick, the team kept him off the flight to Germany. This leaves only two other running backs available, so running back La’Mical Perine could be elevated for the game.
  • On the Dolphins side, guard Robert Hunt (hamstring) and safety Brandon Jones have been listed as out. Eight Miami players are listed as questionable, including key players such as left tackle Terron Armstead (knee), cornerback Xavien Howard (groin) and center Connor Williams (ankle).
  • Running back Raheem Mostert (ankle), cornerback Jalen Ramsey (knee) and wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (back) are among those listed on the report, but they will play on Sunday.
