Some notes

  • As expected, tight end Travis Kelce (knee) has been added to the report as a limited participant. Cornerback L’Jarius Sneed (knee) and wide receiver Kadarius Toney (knee) remained limited.
  • NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport described Kelce’s game status as “in doubt” but added that it is not considered a “long-term” injury.
  • In better news for Kansas City, wide receiver/returner Richie James (knee) and defensive tackle are trending in the right direction after putting in full practices on Tuesday.
  • As a reminder: defensive tackle Chris Jones does not appear on the injury report, as he is not currently on the active 53-man roster.
  • Although starting center Frank Ragnow (toe/rest) did not practice, our sister site, Pride of Detroit, notes that this is normal — and he is still expected to play against the Chiefs.
  • The Lions again listed defensive back Emmanuel Moseley (knee) as limited. Moseley suffered a torn ACL last October. Detroit has been unsure if he will play this week.
  • There is one more injury report to go — on Wednesday — when Kansas City and Detroit will list official game statuses.
