The Kansas City Chiefs are set to have their first practice of the week ahead of their Week 3 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Andy Reid didn’t have any injury updates after the game on Sunday night or on Monday, but there were what he described as minor injuries. During his update ahead of Wednesday’s practice, Reid was able to get into some specifics regarding those minor injuries.

“Clyde (Edwards-Helaire) has a little bit of sickness,” Reid told reporters on Monday. “Blake Bell’s ankle, he’s got a slight ankle sprain, but he’s going to do some stuff. Hitch (Anthony Hitchens) is also going to do some stuff, he had a little bit of surgery — minor surgery — we’re just letting him heal up there and do some stuff. Chris Jones hurt his wrist and (Derrick) Nnadi with a hip flexor strain.”

The good news about those minor injuries is that Reid said all of the players would at least attempt to go in practice today.

“All of these guys are going to give you something,” Reid said. “They’re going to go out there and go through and work.”

Reid didn’t seem all that concerned with the minor surgery that Hitchens had, saying it was a removal of fatty tissue. He dismissed it almost completely when asked a follow-up question.

“There’s nothing there,” Reid said.

Hopefully, the Chiefs can get everyone back in working order ahead of their Week 3 game against the Chargers. They’ll need everyone healthy and prepared to play if they’re to play their best possible game.
