Some notes

  • Running back Isiah Pacheco (shoulder), safety Bryan Cook (ankle), left tackle Donovan Smith (neck) and linebacker Drue Tranquill (concussion) have ALL been ruled out for the game.
  • Head coach Andy Reid disclosed that running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire would be the No. 1 running back for the game — and that the team would elevate Deneric Prince from the practice squad.
  • Reid on Edwards-Helaire: “He’s done a great job with all that. He’s a good kid. Clyde’s a good kid, and the chances he’s had to play, he’s done very well.”
  • Reid would not rule out injured reserve for Cook and Pacheco: “We’ll see. Both of them are being evaluated right now, so I’m not going to say anything on that, but we have to see on that.”
  • Reid confirmed that Paheco’s injury is to the same shoulder he had surgery on in the offseason.
  • Linebacker Nick Bolton (wrist) logged full practices all week and is considered good to go. The Chiefs are expected to activate him from injured reserve on Saturday.
  • Compared to the Chiefs, the Bills are healthier, with all of their active-roster players listed on the injury report without a game status. Buffalo is visiting Kansas City coming off its bye week.
  • Like Bolton, cornerback Kaiir Elam (ankle) and tight end Dawson Knox (wrist) would have to be activated from injured reserve for the game. Elam and Knox are listed as questionable.
