The Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have released an approximate injury report for Wednesday during the bye week ahead of Super Bowl LV. The teams both actually didn’t practice today, so this report is just an estimation of the players and their participation had they practiced.

Check out each injury report down below:

* DNP = Did not participate | LP = Limited participation | FP = Full participation | NIR = Not injury related The Chiefs didn't actually practice today but had they practiced there would be a lot of players not practicing in full. Most concerning would be offensive linemen Andrew Wylie and Mike Remmers, the Chiefs are already desperately thin along the offensive line after the torn Achilles diagnoses for Eric Fisher. Wylie and Remmers are the two players are likely slated to start at tackle in Super Bowl LV. A few players would have returned to practice today in a limited capacity like Le'Veon Bell, Willie Gay Jr., and Sammy Watkins. Bell and Watkins are both reportedly expected to play in the Super Bowl. Gay's status remains up in the air, but the practice participation is a good sign. Another piece of big news, Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes would have been a full participant in practice today. It seems like his toe is doing well after the AFC title game against the Buffalo Bills.

FP

* DNP = Did not participate | LP = Limited participation | FP = Full participation | NIR = Not injury related Obviously, this is still a very early injury report, but the Buccaneers have a lot of key offensive and defensive players on this report. All three of their top pass catchers are dealing with some sort of injury. Their safety group is dinged up. Two of their defensive veterans in Lavonte David and JPP aren't practicing. These are all things to monitor as the practice week actually begins for Tampa Bay.
