  • Chiefs starting MLB Anthony Hitchens returned to practice in full after missing the past two games with a triceps injury. It’ll be interesting to see if this impacts Nick Bolton’s role.

  • Chris Jones was limited in practice on Wednesday. He revealed that he has been playing through torn wrist ligaments and will likely not be 100% all season long. Expect them to give him some limited or non-participant days early in the practice week each week.

  • New Chiefs TE Daniel Brown was a non-participant in practice because he was still traveling to join the team after being traded to Kansas City on Tuesday.

  • New DE/LB Melvin Ingram has been dealing with a groin injury from when he was with the Steelers. He was a full participant in practice, though.

  • It’s concerning to see DT Derrick Nnadi’s hip injury pop back up. That injury limited him during the preseason and the start of the season. He was able to practice in full.

  • Two starting 3-4 defensive ends in Dean Lowry and Kingsley Keke were non-participants in practice to start the week as was one of their backups. A short-handed defensive line could lead to a run-heavy game plan for Kansas City.
