The final injury report of the week has come out, and the Chiefs do have a few notable names listed.
If you’re wondering why we’re talking final injury reports today, take a look at the schedule. Kansas City’s massive clash with the Philadelphia Eagles will be under the primetime lights of Thursday Night Football.
While that’s great from a publicity standpoint, it also affords the players less time to heal.
Adam Teicher of ESPN.com tweeted out the injury report:
He also added that tight end Travis Kelce may not see much action Thursday night due to injury:
This is somewhat troubling considering both of Kansas City’s top tight ends may not see the field Thursday night. Fasano, in particular, is a safety net of sorts for quarterback Alex Smith, so not having him out there will be a loss for the offense. With that said, tight end Sean McGrath has stepped up at times so far this season, so he may have to do so again against Philadelphia.
The other concern here would be getting Flowers ready to go, as Kansas City’s defense will need every available option in order to stop the high-powered Eagles’ defense.
