Chiefs DT Chris Jones (calf) is inactive for today's game against the Texans. That leaves the Kansas City D-line without a top run defender and a key component in the pass rush. Jones also missed the Week 6 meeting, in which Texans RB Carlos Hyde tallied 116 yards on 26 carries. Today's matchup gets better for Hyde with Jones out.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) is active for today's game against the Texans. He was limited in practice all week, but the knee issue doesn't sound like something that will be a big factor today.

Chiefs DT Chris Jones is questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans. Jones sustained a calf injury in Thursday's practice and then missed Friday's workout. Jones missed 3 games earlier this season, a span that included losses to Houston and Green Bay. Jones' absence would hurt both the run defense and the pass rush. We'll see about his availability Sunday afternoon.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans after a limited week of practice. HC Andy Reid said Friday that Kelce's injury is "more of a bruise than anything." Unless we hear otherwise, we're expecting him to be available for his usual role on Sunday.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He's dealing with a "sore knee," according to ESPN's Adam Teicher. "Shouldn't keep him out of Sunday's game but something to watch," Teicher adds. We'll see what Kelce does in Thursday's practice.

Snow is expected throughout today's Broncos-Chiefs game. There are already multiple inches of snow on the field. We're not adjusting projections for this game because there's no evidence that snow impacts scoring. But you can certainly use the weather as a tiebreaker between 2 closely ranked players.

Chiefs DE Frank Clark is active for today's game against the Broncos. He's fighting a stomach illness, but he played through it productively last week and should be in IDP lineups where he makes sense.

NFL Network's James Palmer reports that the Chiefs expect DE Frank Clark to play against the Broncos today. He's questionable with a stomach ailment that kept him out of Wednesday and Thursday practices and sent him to see a specialist midweek. But he played through the illness productively at New England last Sunday. Plan to have Clark in your IDP lineups for Week 15, where he makes sense.

Chiefs DE Frank Clark is still dealing with the stomach ailment that rendered him questionable for last week's win at New England. Clark missed practice Wednesday and Thursday of this week but returned or a full Friday workout. The Kansas City Star reports that Clark will have 1 more appointment with a specialist, which likely will determine whether he plays against the Broncos. "We're heading in the right direction there," HC Andy Reid said Friday. "We'll just see how it all works out, but he looked like he moved around pretty good today." Clark played through the illness last week and delivered a sack among 3 total pressures. If he's active, he'll be worth playing in an upside matchup with Denver.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (hand) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He seems safe to use as you normally would for Sunday’s game against the Broncos.

The x-rays on Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes' injured throwing hand came back clean, HC Andy Reid said Monday. So, barring some kind of setback, Mahomes will play against the Broncos this weekend. We'll keep an eye on him leading up to that one.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes injured his throwing hand in the win over the Patriots, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. X-rays on the hand after the game came back clean, but Mahomes is scheduled for more testing on Monday. Rapoport says there's "optimism" that Mahomes will be able to play against the Broncos this weekend but that "no one is absolutely sure" until those test results come back. We'll obviously keep a close eye on this.

Chiefs DE Frank Clark is active for today's game against the Patriots. He was listed as questionable with a shoulder issue, but flu seems to be a bigger question for Clark. He's a low-floor, low-ceiling IDP option.

The Chiefs have placed RB Darrel Williams on IR with his hamstring injury. LeSean McCoy, Darwin Thompson and Spencer Ware are Kansas City's healthy RBs right now. Damien Williams (rib) remained sidelined on Wednesday. McCoy is looking like the favorite to lead this backfield in touches against the Patriots this weekend, although he hasn't topped 14 touches in a game all season.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid conceded that there's a "good chance" RB Darrel Williams (hamstring) misses Sunday's game against the Patriots. There was no update from Reid on RB Damien Williams, who missed Week 13 with a rib injury. If both Williamses are out this weekend, Kansas City would be down to RBs LeSean McCoy and Darwin Thompson.

Chiefs RB Darrel Williams suffered a non-contact leg injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Raiders. The leg just buckled underneath him as he took the ball off left tackle. Williams was able to hobble off the field under his own power. We'll update his status when we learn more. With RB Damien Williams (rib) out, Kansas City is down to RBs LeSean McCoy and Darwin Thompson.

Update: Williams is officially questionable to return with a hamstring injury.

Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final injury report. He's an elite Week 13 fantasy play vs. Oakland's flammable secondary.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid is "optimistic" about WR Tyreek Hill's availability for Sunday's game against the Raiders after he exited the Week 11 win over the Chargers with a hamstring injury. "I think he'll be all right," Reid said. "We'll see how it goes." Hill can be penciled into Week 13 fantasy lineups for now. We'll track his practice participation throughout the week.

Seahawks DT Jarran Reed left Sunday's win over the Eagles with an ankle injury. We'll see about the severity this week. Reed gets an extra day to heal up, at least, with Seattle playing Minnesota on Monday night.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill's hamstring injury was "deemed minor." Hill is considered day-to-day and has a "real chance" to be ready after the Week 12 bye, per Rapoport. We'll keep an eye on Hill when Kansas City returns to practice next week.
