AFC Divisional Playoffs - Jacksonville Jaguars v Kansas City Chiefs

Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce was a surprise addition to the Chiefs’ injury report on Friday, listed as questionable for today’s game with a back injury. But Kelce appears to be good to go.

Kelce was having back spasms during the week but felt good on Saturday and expects to play on Sunday against the Bengals, according to multiple reports.

After Patrick Mahomes, Kelce may be the Chiefs’ next-most important player. He had 14 catches for 98 yards and two touchdowns in the divisional round win over the Jaguars, and he was the Chiefs’ leader in catches, yards and touchdowns during the regular season.

Kelce is just 54 yards from moving ahead of Julian Edelman for the second-most receiving yards in NFL postseason history.

  1. Back spams is not good he needs some strong painkillers plus antispasmodic drugs! I need him healthy as I have bet on him being the top receiver in yards and TD and catches!!!

  2. The chiefs don’t sound like they’re anywhere near 100%. And they’ll need to be.

  3. You can say defenses leave him open but part of it is scheming him open and the other is his incredible route running and chemistry with Mahomes. They are an incredible tandem.

  4. The Jaguars had trouble all year long covering tight ends. This is exactly the wrong weakness to have when facing the GOAT

  5. Ready made excuse for when the Chiefs choke again in the AFCC game like they did last year.

  6. You idiots do understand the injury report is for Las Vegas right? If the Chiefs didn’t report his back spasm, regardless of how minor, then they flair up in the game they get in trouble with the league!

  7. KC never gets in trouble with the league. The league moves mountains for that team and their whiny fans.
