Some notes

  • The Chiefs have three players who have missed both Thursday and Friday practices this week: running back Jerick McKinnon (groin), wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hip) and linebacker Cam Jones (illness).
  • After he practiced Thursday, left tackle Donovan Smith (neck) was held out on Friday, potentially indicating a setback. Running back Clyde Edwards-Heliare missed the workout due to personal reasons.
  • Linebacker Nick Bolton (wrist/abdomen/illness) was back to a full participant on Friday after missing Thursday because of the “illness” part of his current three-ailment designation.
  • Wide receiver Mecole Hardman (thumb), still listed on injured reserve, remained limited.
  • For the Raiders, key defensive end Maxx Crosby (knee) was once again 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. Tight end Michael Mayer (toe) missed practice for the second straight day.
  • Running back Josh Jacobs (quad) was back to practice Friday in a limited capacity after missing the last game. An extra day of rest helps his chances this week.
  • Raiders center Andre James (ankle) stayed a limited participant after missing last week’s game against the Chargers. Linebacker Robert Spillane (illness) was also limited for the second straight day.
