Some notes

  • Chiefs fans were treated to some good news on Thursday, as both linebacker Willie Gay Jr. (quad) and running Isiah Pacheco (hamstring) returned to the practice field in a limited capacity. Cornerback L’Jarius Sneed (knee) was upgraded to a full participant.
  • Linebacker Nick Bolton (ankle), wide receiver Kadarius Toney (toe) and wide receiver Richie James (knee) continued to miss practice. James (knee) is the only player that we can say with certainty will be out for the game, but Bolton or Toney will likely have to log at least one practice on Friday if they are to be considered available on Sunday.
  • Starting free safety Eddie Jackson (foot) was injured early in last week’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, so the Bears have held him out for the first two practices of the week. Wide receiver Darnell Mooney (knee) apparently thinks he’ll be OK to play against Kansas City — despite logging limited practices so far this week.
  • Starting center Lucas Patrick (illness) was back to practice after missing the Wednesday workout. Slot cornerback Josh Blackwell (hamstring) was upgraded from being limited to a full participant.
