  • While Chiefs DE Frank Clark was officially listed as absent from practice due to an illness, it seems he also resolved his legal situation stemming from two arrests on gun charges in LA county in 2021. Read the full report from the KC Star here.

  • Kinnard is the only new player listed on the injury report with an actual injury. He has an elbow injury but participated in full during practice on Thursday.

  • Golden returned to practice on Thursday in a limited capacity. Hudson returned in full and is no longer listed on the injury report.

  • Ertz was downgraded to a non-participant after being limited on Wednesday. That’s not a good thing with just one more practice day ahead of the game on Sunday.

  • Two new injuries for Arizona include WR Rondale Moore and OL Cody Ford. Pro Football Network’s Aaron Wilson reported that Moore will have an MRI to gauge the severity of the hamstring injury. His status is in doubt for Sunday. Chiefs DC Steve Spagnuolo expected big things from Moore this week.
