  • The Chiefs seem to plan on giving guys who’ve been on the COVID-19 list an acclimation period. Steve Spagnuolo spoke a bit about it after practice today. “I did not see very much of Chris (Jones) and Charvarius (Ward) to be honest with you,” Spagnuolo said. “Just because, they’ve been physically not doing anything for a little while and we want to be really careful with the numbers of reps.”

  • Roethlisberger was downgraded to a limited participant on Thursday. Generally, that’s not a good sign. However, Big Ben was limited this day last week as well. It’s entirely possible that it was planned rest to get his shoulder right.

  • The Steelers had one new addition to the injury report on Thursday, with LT Dan Moore Jr. going on the list as limited with an illness.

  • DE Isaiah Buggs is no longer on the injury report after having been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
