A few notes

  • The most important news is good news for the Chiefs, as quarterback Patrick Mahomes (ankle) has been listed as complete participating in Wednesday’s practice (more on Mahomes’ status here).
  • Wide receiver Mecole Hardman (basin) is still trying to come back for the first time since Week 9. He was listed as a limit participant (more on Hardman’s status here).
  • As a reminder: Running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) and tight end Jody Fortson (elbow) are still on injured reserve, so the Chiefs don’t need to include them in the injury report. The two were spotted at the training ground again on Wednesday.
  • Two Bengals offensive linemen did not practice Wednesday: right guard Alex Cappa (ankle) and left tackle Jonah Williams (knee). Bengals head coach Zac Taylor noted that both players are “getting better and better.” Cappa and Williams missed last week’s divisional round against the Buffalo Bills.
  • Center Ted Karras (knee) was a full participant while cornerback Tre Flowers (hamstring) was limit. Flowers also missed last week’s game against the Bills.
