Chris Jones, Sammy Watkins among Chiefs not practicing

The Chiefs are still short-handed, with a number of key players still missing practice.

Via Herbie Teope of the Kansas City Star, the Chiefs are holding out left tackle Eric Fisher, defensive tackle Chris Jones, linebacker Dorian O'Daniel, guard Andrew Wylie, and wide receiver Sammy Watkins today.

That’s the same as yesterday, and indicative of how banged up they were coming out of Sunday night’s loss to the Colts.

Wide receiver Tyreek Hill is still listed as limited, but quarterback Patrick Mahomes is a full participant.

Between Mahomes’ left ankle issue and the lack of his starting wideouts last week, the Chiefs struggled to move the ball consistently, and the attrition on defense made it far easier for the Colts to run straight at them.

  1. I hear the media talking that people are playing man and that somehow has figured out the Chiefs offense. They have lost their two top receivers and you can now cover them man to man. Again it isn’t scheme that makes things happen in football but the players on the field. Easier to play man to man when Hill isn’t stretching the field and there isn’t anyone else that needs to be doubled.

  2. Mahomes not being able to sprint out of trouble means his get-of-jail card’s gone for now too

    Bump and run with heat gives Patty fits because the timing is off from the bump and the heat’s on the way.

    Hill can be easily disrupted because he’s so small, just keep a safety over top in case he misses the jam.

    It’s a shame Watkins can’t stay healthy. He could have been one of the leagues great receivers.

    Been overrated and overpaid since he was drafted.

  5. The Bills got so much heat for letting him go every time he had a good game which is like once a season. We made a terrible mistake and didn’t compound it by signing him when he left for The Rams. Apparently they don’t have cable in KC and signed him for what $14 mio? He’s good, not great and never stays healthy.

  6. “Hill can be easily disrupted”… Ya, he only had 1,400 yards last year because he’s small and “easily disrupted”….

    No wonder you’re an Oakland fan, you only understand losing.

  7. Good news for the Texans is they’ll have the most talent on the field Sunday afternoon. Bad news is, Bill O’Brien is still coaching that talent.

    He has not had problems with Man defense before. In fact he has shredded them. The underlining issue is not Patrick. It is the fact he is missing his #1, #2 receivers allowing the defenses to double team Kelce. Then with our starting LT and LG both missing. He is getting 2 seconds to try and find his second tier when the defense is only rushing 4 and dropping 7. If they bring more than 4, he needs to be able to move around to buy time. Once he hurt his ankle. He wasn’t able to help the offensive line out. Before his injury, the Chiefs moved the ball real well. A dropped pass and fumble by McCoy would have made that close to a blow out.
