The Kansas City Chiefs are continuing to deal with some injuries issues along the defensive line.

Frank Clark has been in and out of the lineup all season with hamstring injuries, while Chris Jones has been battling through a nagging wrist injury. Clark is expected back in the lineup this week, but Jones isn’t a given to face the Buffalo Bills on “Sunday Night Football” in Week 5.

The Chiefs held Jones out of practice all week in hopes of providing some relief for his wrist injury. Andy Reid said that Jones was someone who could miss the entire week and play on Sunday if his wrist was feeling better. Jones was listed as questionable in the final injury report on Friday.

According to a report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Jones is considered to be a “true game-time decision’ for Kansas City.

The Chiefs elevated Demone Harris from the practice squad on Saturday, signaling that it wasn’t a certainty that the team would have Jones available to play. Harris originally was signed as rotational depth during the Chiefs’ Super Bowl LIV run. He made the initial 53-man roster in 2020, but he was released to make room for Martinas Rankin when he was activated off the Reserve/PUP list.

Jones is still one of the Chiefs’ premiere pass-rushers, despite a position switch to play at edge full-time this season. He has 17 total pressures on the season including two sacks. Losing Jones for this pivotal AFC matchup would be a crushing blow for Kansas City on the defensive side of the ball. The good news is that he hasn’t been ruled out yet and has a chance to play during the game.
