Sneed will miss his first game of the season after being a game-time decision last week against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Several other players are listed as questionable for Sunday’s game:

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes also will not play Sunday; he’s listed as doubtful on the Chiefs latest injury report. Backup Blaine Gabbert will start for him, head coach Andy Reid said earlier this week.

It’s unknown if tight end Travis Kelce will play or how much. Reid said his snap count has not been finalized, as of Friday afternoon.

The offensive line will rotate so starters get fewer reps before the playoffs next week.

Kickoff is set for 3:25 p.m. Sunday.
