Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (knee) likely will not be able to play in the Week 8 game, according to head coach Andy Reid.

  Chiefs | Tyreek Hill not on injury report    Wed Oct 16, 02:19 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

Footballguys view: Hill is good to go after his return last week against the Texans. It's a short week for the Chiefs as they travel to Denver to face the Broncos on Thursday night. Hill has a tough draw as he should be covered by Broncos CB Chris Harris Jr. most of the night. Start him as per usual but expectations should be tempered.

  Chiefs | Patrick Mahomes on track to play    Wed Oct 16, 02:17 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

Footballguys view: Mahomes is going to be under pressure early and often against the Broncos. Perhaps the Chiefs will utilize more of a short-passing game to get the ball out of his hands quickly. Using their three-headed RBBC against the Broncos makes sense too.

  Chiefs | Sammy Watkins to miss Week 7    Wed Oct 16, 02:10 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 16, but has been ruled out for Week 7.

Footballguys view: Watkins was perhaps going to be back but with a short week the Chiefs decided to shut him down. Tyreek Hill is drawing Chris Harris Jr. most of the night on Thursday but guys like Demarcus Robinson, Mecole Hardman and Byron Pringle have much better matchups against a banged up Broncos CB group.

  Chiefs | LeSean McCoy gashing defenses on first down    Tue Oct 15, 02:57 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB LeSean McCoy leads all rushers - minimum 20 rush attempts - with 6.79 yards per carry on first down. Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson ranks second at 6.32, while Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison (5.87), Jacksonville Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette (5.83) and San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida (5.71) round out the top five.

Footballguys view: McCoy can still play at a high level...provided he hangs onto the rock and does a good job in pass protection. The Chiefs travel to Denver to play the Broncos on Thursday night. McCoy has flex appeal in that matchup.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (shoulder) fully participated in practice Monday, Oct. 14. The Chiefs did not practice Monday, so this is an estimation.

Footballguys view: Hill was back on Sunday, and he didn't suffer any setbacks, so he's good to go for Thursday night against the Broncos. He will draw Chris Harris Jr. in coverage, so Hill may not have a huge game. We're still starting him in every format.
