The Kansas City Chiefs and Tennessee Titans have released their first injury reports of the week on Wednesday. Kansas City, perhaps surprisingly, is dealing with more injuries than Tennessee to start the week.

Check out the injury report for each team down below:

  • Chiefs starting LB Anthony Hitchens might be dealing with something a little more significant than a triceps contusion. NFL Network is reporting that he has a nerve injury to his right elbow.

  • Jody Fortson had successful surgery to repair his torn Achilles. Expect a move to injured reserve later this week.

  • Despite not practicing on Wednesday, expect Tyreek Hill and Joe Thuney to play on Sunday. Their missing practice is simply precautionary, as was the case last week.

  • Charvarius Ward, Chris Jones and Blake Bell all returned to practice on Wednesday. Ward and Jones were still limited, while Bell was a full participant.

  • The Chiefs have a ton of ticky-tacky injuries piling up with starters like Travis Kelce, Tyrann Mathieu and Trey Smith all dinged up by injuries. It was clear that both Kelce and Mathieu were playing through some injuries in Week 6, now we know the extent.

  • A total of seven Titans players missed practice on Wednesday including LT Taylor Lewan and starting WRs A.J. Brown and Julio Jones. Those are some big names on offense who could potentially miss the week if they don’t get back to practice soon.
