The Chiefs hoped to have more answers to questions about the availability of their injured players after Thursday afternoon’s practice.
Turns out, they just added two more names β starters no less β to the list. During the early part of Thursday’s session, DE Glenn Dorsey went down with what the Chiefs are calling a calf injury. Dorsey had to have help coming off the practice field from a trainer and it appeared the injury as around his ankle. If it’s the calf, that could be an Achilles tendon and that’s not a good deal.
Another new addition to the injury report was WR Dwayne Bowe who has a bruised thigh. Bowe practiced on Wednesday, but complained after practice of pain in the leg, so he was limited in participation on Thursday with what the Chiefs called a groin problem.
TE Kevin Boss (head) and RB Peyton Hillis (ankle) did not participate in the practice.
There were eight other players on the injury/practice report. TE Jake O’Connell (knee) was a full participant in practice. The rest were listed as limited along with Bowe: C Ryan Lilja (back), FS Kendrick Lewis (shoulder), WR Dexter McCluster (elbow), WR Devon Wylie (hamstring), NT Anthony Toribio (ankle), and WR Steve Breaston (knee).
McCluster was wearing a much bigger brace on his left elbow. It was heavily padded and in position drills, he was having trouble holding on to the ball. After practice, McCluster said he had no problem catching passes arriving at different positions on his body.
For the Chargers, they l,isted CB Shareece Wright (foot) as not practicing. Limited participation included a couple of former Chiefs β OT Jared Gaither (back) and LB Demorrio Williams (hamstring). CB Quentin Jammer (hand) did not practice on Wednesday, but was a full participant on Thursday. So was OLB Antwan Barnes (knee).
