Some notes

  • As expected, the Chiefs will be without defensive end Mike Danna (calf) and kicker Harrison Butker (left ankle) who missed practice all week. Wide receiver Mecole Hardman (heel), who logged some limited exercises this week, is a go. He was a full participant on Friday
  • Chiefs rookie defensive end George Karlaftis on Danna: “It’s a huge loss – but our mentality is always the next guy, you know? Mike brings a lot of things to the table. He’s very versatile, he’s a great player and can do a lot of things for us and help us win. But like I said, it’s the next guy.’
  • The next man for Danna is expected to be Malik Herring, per Reid: “We’ve had more [defensive ends] than we need there, but we let 94 (Malik Herring) jump in and get a few reps as well.
  • Reid also had an update on Butker: “[The ankle’s] still a little swollen but making progress. He’s working on his swings now, but it was a pretty good sprain. [It] swollen on him, and getting all that out of there will take a minute. Hopefully he’ll be ready to go next week, but boy, [Matt] Ammendola, he’s doing a great job.”
  • The Colts have ruled star linebacker Shaquille Leonard (back) from for the game, and that’s a significant loss. Offensive lineman Bernhard Raimann (ankle) – who has snapped snaps for the Colts in both games for the Colts this season – is also from.
  • Chiefs Judge Guard Trey Smith on Leonard Not Playing: “I can speak for us – when someone goes down, it’s the next man up mentality. Again, they’re a different NFL football team, so they’re going to have someone who’s completely capable. For us, it actually changes nothing. We have to go out and perform at a high level and just do our job.”
  • Wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. (quad) and DeForest Buckner (hip) — who logged in limited exercises this week are expected to play. Wide receiver Alec Pierce has cleared the concussion protocol. Defensive end Yannick Ngakoue (back) is questionable.
