Some notes

  • Wide receiver Mecole Hardman (pelvis) — after finally being activated — now appears on the Chiefs’ injury report. He is officially limited, which is to be expected. Just because Hardman was activated does not necessarily mean he will play this weekend.
  • Three other Chiefs were limited: left guard Joe Thuney (ankle), wide receiver Skyy Moore (hand) and cornerback L’Jarius Sneed (hip). Moore and Sneed practiced for the first time this week on Wednesday.
  • Thuney missed two games when he last injured his ankle, so his status is to be determined. Because Moore’s hand wound required stitches, it’s worth wondering if the team gives him a week to rest as it plays the Raiders. I think it’s likely, however, that Sneed plays through his hip issue.
  • As expected after head coach Andy Reid’s Wednesday press conference, kicker Harrison Butker (back) did not practice (more on that and the other injuries here).
  • Wide receiver Davante Adams (illness) and quarterback Jarrett Stidham (right elbow) were upgraded from limited to full participants on Wednesday.
  • Running back Josh Jacobs (hip/oblique) was downgraded from limited to a non-participant.
