Kansas City Chiefs Injury Report: Allen Bailey Out Again, Phillip Gaines Is Doubtful


It wouldn’t be a 2014 Kansas City Chiefs injury report if at least one starter was out due to injury. This week is no exception.

Allen Bailey will miss his second-straight game with a concussion this Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. Bailey initially suffered the concussion against the Denver Broncos and missed last week’s game against the Arizona Cardinals. He did not practice all week so it is hard to think his return is imminent.

Also likely out for Sunday is cornerback Phillip Gaines, who suffered a concussion in practice this week. He did not practice on Thursday and was limited Friday which is why he’s officially listed as doubtful. Doubtful generally means there is about a 75% chance he will not play. But unlike Bailey, there is at least some hope he will be able to return next week against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Tamba Hali, who did not practice Wednesday or Thursday and was limited on Friday, is listed as questionable. Hali has been dealing with a knee injury all season and has been limited in practice for most of the season. However, the fact he missed two days of practice this week is a bit unusual for him which may mean we see a lot more of Dee Ford this week.

Everyone else on the Chiefs’ injury report is listed as probable, including Jamaal Charles who is suffering for a banged up everything (more specifically his knee).

The Oakland Raiders have their own set of injury issues. Safety Larry Asante, tight end Brian Leonhard, wide receiver Denarius Moore, and tackle Menelik Watson are out for Sunday’s game. Cornerback Tarell Brown, linebacker Sio Moore, and defensive tackle Pat Sims are listed as questionable.
