For Week 18, Kansas City goes on the road to play Las Vegas on Saturday.

Each practice day of the season, the Kansas City Chiefs release an official injury report leading up to the next game. This week, the Chiefs will visit the Las Vegas Raiders on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. Arrowhead Time.

Here is the Chiefs’ second official injury report of the week:


Player Ps Injury Tue Wed Thu Status
Harrison Butker K Back FP DNP
Joe Thuney G Ankle LP LP
Skyy Moore WR Hand DNP LP
Mecole Hardman WR Pelvis N/A LP
L’Jarius Sneed CB Hip DNP LP
Nick Bolton LB Rib FP FP


Player Ps Injury Tue Wed Thu Status
Josh Jacobs RB Hip/Oblique/Pers LP DNP
Darien Butler LB Concussion DNP LP
Zamir White RB Ankle FP FP
Davante Adams WR Illness LP FP
Jarrett Stidham QB Rt. Elbow LP FP
Curtis Bolton LB Shin FP FP
AJ Cole P Illness LP FP

Some notes

  • Wide receiver Mecole Hardman (pelvis) — after finally being activated — now appears on the Chiefs’ injury report. He is officially limited, which is to be expected. Just because Hardman was activated does not necessarily mean he will play this weekend.
  • Three other Chiefs were limited: left guard Joe Thuney (ankle), wide receiver Skyy Moore (hand) and cornerback L’Jarius Sneed (hip). Moore and Sneed practiced for the first time this week on Wednesday.
  • Thuney missed two games when he last injured his ankle, so his status is to be determined. Because Moore’s hand wound required stitches, it’s worth wondering if the team gives him a week to rest as it plays the Raiders. I think it’s likely, however, that Sneed plays through his hip issue.
  • As expected after head coach Andy Reid’s Wednesday press conference, kicker Harrison Butker (back) did not practice (more on that and the other injuries here).
  • Wide receiver Davante Adams (illness) and quarterback Jarrett Stidham (right elbow) were upgraded from limited to full participants on Wednesday.
  • Running back Josh Jacobs (hip/oblique) was downgraded from limited to a non-participant.
