KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KSNT) – The status for the Chiefs’ fan-favorite tight end is uncertain for Thursday’s game against the Broncos.
Kelce suffered an ankle injury during Sunday’s win against the Vikings, but returned to play and even scored a touchdown despite being banged up.
On Monday, the Chiefs offered an injury update for Kelce and others. It’s worth noting that the Chiefs, as a team, did not practice on Monday. Therefore, the status updates are estimations from a press release.
Kelce is listed as ‘Did Not Practice’ for Monday, implying if the team did practice he wouldn’t have been able to. He’s reportedly dealing with a low-ankle sprain.
Other Chiefs listed on the injury report include:
- Linebacker Nick Bolton, limited
- Defensive tackle Matt Dickerson, limited
- Defensive end George Karlaftis, limited
Mike Danna, L’Jarius Sneed, Trent McDuffie, Kadarius Toney and Drue Tranquill were also listed on the report, but given ‘Full participant’ status.
