Sammy Watkins and Mike Remmers are questionable for the Chiefs against the Raiders.
The Kansas City Chiefs have submitted their final injury report for their Week 11 game against the Las Vegas Raiders, and both wide receiver Sammy Watkins and offensive lineman Mike Remmers have been designated as questionable for the AFC West showdown.
Watkins has been working his way back to practice this week after missing several weeks of both practices and games with a hamstring injury. In fact, Watkins hasn’t played since the last time these two teams faced each other back in Week 5.
As for Remmers, his injury is disconcerting for not only the player but the position. Remmers is the team’s sixth man, so to speak, and he’s filled in at right tackle for as long as Mitchell Schwartz has sat out with a back injury. Unfortunately Schwartz remains out for Week 11 even after the bye week last Sunday, which means Remmers will be counted on again for reps outside. Yasir Durant is likely to play if Remmers cannot go.
As far as players designated as out, Schwartz is out along with defensive end Taco Charlton, who continues to wait for a fractured foot to heal. It’s notable that he’s still on the active roster instead of injured reserve, but further moves could be forthcoming if L’Jarius Sneed is on his way back from IR as Andy Reid mentioned after practice on Friday.
Other players were getting healthier as the week went on. Cornerback Rashad Fenton went from limited in practice to full practice on Friday despite an ankle injury. Also running backs Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Darrel Williams were also back in practice after missing Thursday’s session to an undisclosed illness.
The Chiefs and Raiders are scheduled to play at 7:20 p.m. C.T. on Sunday.
