  • Both Tyreek Hill and Mecole Hardman returned to practice on Thursday after being excused from practice the day prior.

  • Rashad Fenton missed his second consecutive practice on Thursday. He’ll need a limited practice tomorrow if he’s to play on Sunday night.

  • Lucas Niang was downgraded to a non-participant in practice on Thursday, suggesting his rib injury is still bothering him. The Chiefs have a decision to make at the right tackle position if Niang is unable to play on Sunday night.

  • Every non-participant from Wednesday’s practice with the exception of Melvin Gordon (DNP) and Calvin Anderson (IR) was upgraded to limited participation on Thursday. That’s a good sign for guys like Dalton Risner and Shelby Harris.

  • Three defensive players (Bradley Chubb, Kareem Jackson and Baron Browning) were upgraded from limited participation to full participation on Thursday. That’ll be a big boost for Vic Fangio’s defense.

  • Two new players were added to the injury report for the Broncos. CB Nate Hairston was listed as a non-participant with a hip injury. LT Garett Bolles returned from the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday, but he was limited in practice with an ankle injury. He was nursing that ankle injury before he was added to the COVID list. Monitor his status closely tomorrow.
