The Kansas City Chiefs are back on the practice field come Wednesday afternoon, and head coach Andy Reid is giving us some updates. As usual, there is good and bad news.
On the negative side, De’Anthony Thomas (concussion), Justin Houston (knee), Mike DeVito (concussion), Husain Abdullah (concussion) and Tamba Hali (rest) won’t practice.
The concussions are especially concerning, with Thomas being out side the initial drive of the first game against the San Diego Chargers. DeVito is trying to recover from his second concussion this season, perhaps suggesting he will be out for a while. Abdullah sustained his concussion in practice last week on Friday, so hopefully he’s close to coming back.
On a good note, Mitch Morse is returning to practice for the first time since sustaining a concussion against the Buffalo Bills. Allen Bailey is also practicing, hopefully this time he can play.
Morse has been a terrific player for Kansas City as a rookie after being drafted in the second round out of the University of Missouri. Morse’s return might allow Zach Fulton to move over to guard, should Jeff Allen be out with his lingering ankle issue. That said, Allen appears to be practicing.
