Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes cleared concussion protocol, HC Andy Reid said after Sunday's loss to the Titans. We'll keep an eye on Mahomes this coming week, but it looks like he'll be available for next Monday night's game vs. the Giants.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes took a knee to the head as he was falling to the ground in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game vs. Tennessee. He was noticeably woozy as he was helped off the field. Mahomes will certainly be checked for a concussion. We'll update his status when we know more.

Chiefs DL Chris Jones (hand/wrist) and CB Charvarius Ward (quad) are active for today's game against the Titans.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (quad) is active for today’s game against the Titans. He was listed as questionable after only getting in a limited practice on Friday. But Hill was in the same boat last week before posting a 9-76-1 line on Washington, despite only playing 57% of the snaps. There’s still some added risk here, but Hill remains a must-start in season-long leagues.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (quad) will play vs. the Titans today. Like last week, Hill got in just 1 limited practice this week and is listed as questionable. But he played through this injury -- and produced -- in last Sunday's win over Washington.

The Chiefs have ruled LB Anthony Hitchens out for Sunday's game against the Titans. He's listed on the injury report with a triceps contusion, but it sounds like a nerve issue in his right elbow might be more significant. His absence leaves Ben Niemann and Nick Bolton as the likely LB leaders, with Bolton the more attractive IDP option. DL Chris Jones (hand) and CB Charvarius Ward (quad) are questionable for the game. Jones had missed time with a wrist injury but appears to have moved on from that. He finished the week with a full practice. Ward put in limited practices all week.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (neck) is not listed on the final injury report. He practiced all week, including a full workout on Friday. Kelce should play his usual role on Sunday against the Titans.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (quad) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Titans after only getting in a limited practice on Friday. Hill was in the same boat last week before playing vs. Washington. Hill’s snap rate was down to 57% in that one -- but he still caught 9 of 12 targets for 76 yards and a score. He carries elevated risk in Week 7 but remains a must-start in season-long leagues.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (neck) remained limited in Thursday's practice. We've heard nothing to suggest that he's in danger of missing this weekend's game vs. Tennessee, but check back tomorrow to see how he's listed on the final injury report.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (quad) remained sidelined on Thursday. He, of course, only got in a limited practice on Friday last week before posting a 9-76-1 line vs. Washington. Hill is fully expected to play vs. the Titans this Sunday.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid told reporters Wednesday that LB Anthony Hitchens is dealing with a right triceps contusion. NFL Network's Jeffrey Chadiha reports, however, that Hitchens also has a nerve injury in the elbow. It's not yet clear how long -- or even whether -- Hitchens will miss further time. Ben Niemann led Chiefs LBs in Week 6 playing time, with Hitchens leaving early. Nick Bolton checked in 2nd, while Willie Gay Jr.'s snap share declined vs. the previous game. Bolton is the most attractive IDP option among those 3.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (neck) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He got banged up in last week's win over Washington but was able to return and looked just fine. He should be ready for Sunday's game vs. the Titans, but we'll update his status again tomorrow.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (quad) did not practice on Wednesday. He played just 57% of Kansas City's offensive snaps last week -- but posted a 9-76-1 line anyway. Barring a setback, he'll be out there in Sunday's game vs. the Titans.

Chiefs LB Anthony Hitchens left Sunday's win over Washington with a right elbow injury. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that it's believed to be a hyperextension. We'll see about Hitchens' return timeline. His absence could allow Willie Gay Jr. and Nick Bolton to take over the the corps' top 2 in playing time.

Chiefs LB Anthony Hitchens (knee) is active for today's game against Washington.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (quad) is active for today’s game vs. Washington. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, but we never heard any real concern about Hill’s status for this one. He carries a bit more risk than usual but remains a must-start.

In addition to the change at safety, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that the Chiefs' defensive alterations could include "possibly more Nick Bolton and Willie Gay together at linebacker." It'll be a tough situation to read for IDP value before we see the new snap distribution among Chiefs LBs. We did move Anthony Hitchens down the Week 6 LB rankings, though.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Chiefs are expected to starting S Juan Thornhill in place of S Daniel Sorensen today against Washington. That follows a game in which Sorensen was charged with allowing a 61-yard reception to Bills WR Stefon Diggs and a 53-yard TD to Dawson Knox. It also comes with K.C. needing to improve 1 of the league's worst defenses. Thornhill played less than 50% of the snaps as the 3rd safety each of the past 4 weeks, so Sorensen should be out of IDP lineups. Thornhill becomes an option but doesn't carry the tackle upside of Sorensen.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (quad) is expected to play vs. Washington today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Hill only got in a limited practice on Friday, but HC Andy Reid said he looked good then. We never heard any concern about Hill's status throughout the week. He remains a must-start in season-long fantasy leagues -- and we wouldn't be afraid to use Hill in DFS tournaments.

The Chiefs have ruled DL Chris Jones (wrist) and CB Charvarius Ward (quad) out for Sunday's game at Washington. LB Anthony Hitchens (knee) is questionable. He finished the week with a full Friday workout, though. We'll check his status Sunday morning.
