A few notes

  • With the week’s final practice in the books, we have official status for the three leaders in question. Running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) was officially judged outside for the game. The next running back, Darrel Williams (toe) is officially questionable — but it’s fair to expect that Williams, Derrick Gore and Jerick McKinnon will all be active with Edwards-Helaire out of the roster.
  • Chiefs head coach Andy Reid on Edwards-Helaire: “He tested it a few days ago and it wasn’t as good as we thought it might be and he thought it might be. So he’ll be listed as absent when you get the report. here.
  • Wide receiver Tyreek Hill (heel) called it back with limit is training to finish the week, but is expected to play.
  • Reid on Williams and Hill: “Yeah, I think [they will play], unless something happens.
  • Of note, Steelers running back Najee Harris (elbow) failed workout twice this week. Harris was a full participant Friday, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin reportedly said practice would be “revealing” of his game-day status; Harris is officially questionable. His full participation probably indicates that he will start against Kansas City.
  • One player to watch who doesn’t appear on the report is wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster. The wide receiver do practice Thursday and Friday, but does not appear on the report, as he is on the disabled list. He would have a chance of being activated on Saturday and could play on Sunday.
