Kansas City Chiefs Injury Report: Donald Stephenson, Sanders Commings Back At Practice

Good news this morning on the injury front, Donald Stephenson is back at practice. Stephenson had missed several practices with an ankle injury but the injury was not thought to be too serious, his return to practice this morning would seem to back up those assertions.

Stephenson was replaced at right tackle by Ryan Harris while he was out. It will be interesting to see if he sees time elsewhere on the offensive line while Stephenson takes over the starting duties.

Additional good news comes in the form of a healthy Sanders Commings, who is back at practice after missing the first week of camp with a foot injury. Commings sent out this tweet earlier in the morning:


Of course, his return was met with some snark.  

Commings return, however long it may be, is incredibly important for a secondary that has not looked very cohesive in training camp. A lack of depth and some issues at cornerback have led to a lot of big plays in the passing game. Commings is meant to be an upgrade to the Chiefs secondary and part of the solution to the problems Kansas City had covering the middle of the field. He needs to be on the practice field and he needs to be healthy. Hopefully his good health will be continued.

Finally, it should also be noted Phillip Gaines is back and practicing after there were concerns of a concussion, and Eric Kush is also back at practice.

The rest of the injuries are as follows:

You can also add Otis Hudson to this list.
