Kansas City Chiefs: The Chiefs finished off the regular season with a distressing injury report that added center Mitch Morse and linebacker Dee Ford to its ranks for concussions. However, Ford is now back on the practice field and expected to play. For Morse, this is his second concussion of the year which puts his playoff availability in doubt. Another player dealing with concussion, Hussain Abdullah, was cleared from protocol. However Abdullah continued to miss practice while attending to the death of his father. He is expected to play this weekend though.
New York Jets: Defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson is down with a broken leg, and that puts the Jets in an extremely difficult situation regarding his contract. Wilkerson is a free agent this offseason, but there is little doubt that he’s looking for a top contract. Generally speaking, NFL teams don’t give those out to players who are injured. That brings the Franchise Tag into play, but for that position group, the price is going to still be astronomical.
Pittsburgh Steelers: Running back DeAngelo Williams appears to be very doubtful for this week’s playoff opener against the Bengals. The veteran running back is an important piece of the Steelers offense, and his absence will be tough to fill.
Well, that will do it for me Addicts. I’m sure I missed a story or two, but I hope you can understand with all of the coaching and front office moves going on.
