Some notes

  • Three of the four Chiefs players out of practice on Wednesday remained out on Thursday: defensive tackle Chris Jones (groin), wide receiver Rashee Rice (hamstring) and cornerback L’Jarius Sneed (calf). Running back Isiah Pacheco (quad/shoulder) returned to practice as a limited participant.
  • With Week 18’s matchup holding no playoff implications for the Chiefs, it is likely the team remains conservative with playing time for those players.
  • Tight end Travis Kelce (neck) was limited for the second straight day.
  • Both running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) and wide receiver Justyn Ross (illness) have been removed from the injury report and are considered good to go.
  • After practicing on Wednesday, wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hip/ankle) was out of practice Thursday. Left tackle Donovan Smith (neck) also practiced Wednesday but missed practice on Thursday.
