Chiefs coach Andy Reid suggested in remarks to reporters that the team is completely healthy heading in to Sunday’s game against the Steelers. The official injury report paints a slightly different picture. (That’s not sarcasm; it’s a slight difference.)

“All right,” Reid said at the outset of his press conference, “so really don’t have any injuries to talk about. Everybody is practicing and we’re rolling there.”

They’re not rolling completely. Linebackers Justin Houston and Tamba Hali were both limited with knee injuries, and safety Eric Berry (Achilles) and running back Spencer Ware (rib) both fully participated in practice.

Houston is the biggest name of the bunch, given what he means to the team’s pass rush.

As to Ware, he said plenty of things during a Wednesday visit to PFT Live.

  1. Need Houston for a true SB run. Need to take the next step to the AFC Championship game. Chiefs played the 4th toughest schedule in the league, swept the west, and have the resume to get there.

    Go Chiefs!

  2. Chiefs scraped out wins vs ATL, DEN and CAR where special teams and defense scored at least 9 points in each game. Make Alex Smith and the Chiefs offense beat you and there’s a decent chance they won’t do enough.

  3. Steelers scraped out wins against Bills, Bengals, Ravens.

    Make Ben throw and there is a decent chance he will throw enough picks that your defense will score at least 9 points for the win.

    Chiefs 27, Steelers 21

  4. KCs run defense is not exactly grade A of late. You all see what the Steelers line and Bell did to Miami? Ben may not need to throw much. And bw Ben and Alex…get out of here

  5. Steelers have the better qb and offense in general. KC has the better defense. Should be a great game to watch. Steelers should win, but Arrowhead is loud. Tough game to predict.

  6. With all that speed Pittsburgh has to stretch the field, KC doesn’t need to have any players limping,especially in the secondary. A nickel package will hurt them just like the first game,Ben will simply check off and hand it to Bell who.runs anywhere he pleases, the man’s vision is so good he doesn’t need a block. 18 carries.Hill 144 yards after being suspended for the first 3 games against KC. Pittsburgh can gain yards in bunches,waiting to see if KC can stop that offense that ripped them apart the first game.
