Some notes

  • The Chiefs’ portion of their official injury report went as anticipated on Wednesday. At his usual press conference, head coach Andy Reid announced that running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) would not participate.
  • Tight end Travis Kelce (knee) and defensive tackle Chris Jones (rest) were limited. Kelce suffered a bone bruise last week, leading to his absence against the Lions. The “rest” description indicates Jones is simply being ramped up after he missed the entire offseason holding out for a new contract.
  • When it comes to L’Jarius Sneed (knee) — who was also limited — I could see this potentially being the case for the first two days of practice all season. Sneed has dealt with swelling in his knee dating back to last season.
  • Jaguars starting right guard Brandon Scherff (ankle) did not practice after hurting his ankle in the team’s Week 1 game against the Indianapolis Colts. Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson said that he is “day to day.” Starting center Luke Fortner (ankle) also did not practice, but it sounds like there is a better chance he plays against the Chiefs than Scherff.
  • Defensive backs Gregory Junior (hamstring) and Anthony Johnson (hamstring) also missed practice.
