Some notes

  • As to be expected (but still positive to see), running back Isiah Pacheco (shoulder) was listed on the injury report with a full designation. Barring any setback, he should be good to go on Monday against the Raiders.
  • The Chiefs begin their week missing four players: linebacker Nick Bolton (wrist/abdomen), linebacker Cam Jones (illness), running back Jerick McKinnon (groin) and wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hip).
  • Even though Bolton is listed with a “wrist/abdomen” designation, head coach Andy Reid noted that, like Jones, he is sick.
  • The Chiefs’ two limited participants were wide receiver Mecole Hardman (thumb) and left tackle Donovan Smith (neck).
  • For the Raiders, key defensive end Maxx Crosby (knee) was among those not practicing. The Raiders have been managing his knee issue for a while now, and it’s become common for him to miss the first two practices of the week.
  • Running back Josh Jacobs (quad) remains out of practice after missing the last game.
  • Raiders center Andre James (ankle) was a limited participant after missing last week’s game against the Chargers. Linebacker Robert Spillane (illness) was also limited.
