Some notes

  • The Chiefs will be without four players on Sunday against the Chargers: wide receiver Rashee Rice (hamstring), left tackle Donovan Smith (neck), cornerback L’Jarius Sneed (calf) and wide receiver Kadarius Toney (hip/ankle).
  • Linebacker Nick Bolton (wrist/abdomen), defensive end Mike Danna (not injury related) defensive end George Karlaftis (not injury related), cornerback Trent McDuffie (shoulder) and running back Isiah Pacheco (quad/shoulder) are all questionable for the game.
  • Head coach Andy Reid on whether Pacheco, who has 935 rushing yards on the season, will play in the game: “There’s a chance of that, yeah, but (we’re) still working though that.”
  • Defensive tackle Chris Jones was able to log a limited practice on Friday, and he is considered good to go for the game — and so is tight end Travis Kelce (neck), who was limited all week. Jones needs half a sack for a $1.25 million incentive bonus, and Kelce needs just 16 yards for an eighth straight season with 1,000 receiving yards.
  • Quarterback Patrick Mahomes (ankle) is doubtful. Backup Blaine Gabbert is the confirmed starter.
