* DNP = Did not participate | LP = Limited participation | FP = Full participation | NIR = Not injury related The Chiefs ruled out both Darwin Thompson and Damien Wilson for Week 15. The good news is that neither starting tackle has been ruled out, yet. Chiefs RT Mike Remmers didn't practice all week, but he won't be ruled out for the game yet. He's listed as doubtful, but that still leaves a chance for him to play. He's a veteran guy and they clearly believe he can play without practice otherwise they would simply rule him out. Chiefs LT Eric Fisher returned to practice in full on Friday, which is a good sign for his availability on Sunday. He'll be listed as questionable heading into the game. “He did a nice job today," Chiefs HC Andy Reid said of Fisher on Friday. "We’ll just see how he feels this evening and into tomorrow, but he moved around good today. He is a tough kid. He’s very reliable and that’s been part of his career here. I mean, you can trust that he’s going to do everything possible to be out there.” I think it's safe to expect him to play, but don't expect him to be catching any touchdown passes with an ailing back. Reid added that WR Byron Pringle, who was designated to return from injured reserve earlier in the week, has a chance to be activated to the 53-man roster ahead of the game.

Reports out of New Orleans say that Drew Brees will play on Sunday after a full week of practice with no limitations. Remember, he hasn't officially been activated from injured reserve yet, so the Saints don't need to report his practice status or designation for the game.

The Saints did rule out three players, including star WR Michael Thomas. That's going to present a challenge for the Saints and Brees in Week 15. As always, check back on Saturday for any last-minute upgrades or downgrades ahead of the game.
