Some notes

  • The same four players who missed Wednesday’s practice — running back Isiah Pacheco (shoulder), safety Bryan Cook (ankle), left tackle Donovan Smith (neck and linebacker Drue Tranquill (concussion) — also missed Thursday’s practice.
  • With Pacheco still out, it was good for the Chiefs to see running back Jerick McKinnon (groin) upgraded to a full participant.
  • Linebacker Nick Bolton (wrist) has logged full practices on both Wednesday and Thursday. Bolton remains on the Chiefs’ injured reserve list, but he seems to be trending in the right direction for a return.
  • For the Bills, outside linebacker Von Miller missed practice on Wednesday but was a full participant on Thursday.
  • Every other member of the Bills listed on the injury report logged a full practice. Remember, Buffalo is coming off its bye week to play the Chiefs.
  • It’s worth noting that two Bills — cornerback Kaiir Elam (ankle) and tight end Dawson Knox (wrist) — remain on the injured reserve list. Like Bolton, they are currently designated to return but have yet to be activated.
