Some notes

  • As to be expected, left tackle Wanya Morris (concussion) has been ruled out for the game after not clearing the NFL’s concussion protocol.
  • Wide receivers Justyn Ross (hamstring) and Kadarus Toney (hip/ankle) are considered questionable for the game. Asked about Toney’s role if he plays, head coach Andy Reid said it would be “limited.”
  • Left tackle Donovan Smith (neck) was upgraded to a full participant and will start at left tackle against the Dolphins. Cornerback L’Jarius Sneed (calf) is good to go.
  • For the Dolphins, safety DeShone Elliott (calf) and safety Jevon Holland (knees) are questionable after not practicing all week, though Holland explained that he’s “optimistic” that he will play against the Chiefs.
  • Of all Miami’s limited players from the week of practice, only running back Raheem Mostert (knee/ankle) and wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (ankle) are questionable.
  • Returning wide receiver Tyreek Hill (ankle/quad), running back De’Von Achane (toe/ribs) and left tackle Terron Armstead (knee/ankle/back) are good to go.
  • Cornerback Xavien Howard (foot) was ruled out for the game earlier this week
