Chiefs Injury Update: Charcandrick West Expected to be Ready for Monday Night Football

West missed last week’s game with a concussion

The Kansas City Chiefs are currently in the midst of a 10-day stretch without a game, allotting some of Kansas City's injured players some much-needed rest as they work to get back on the field.

One of those players, running back Charcandrick West, sustained a concussion in Week 6 against Pittsburgh and missed last week's game with the injury, but Head Coach Andy Reid feels good about West's chances of playing in next week's game against the Denver Broncos.

Reid also provided an update on defensive back Steven Nelson, who was placed on the PUP (Physically Unable to Perform) List on Sept. 3 with a "core muscle" injury and is eligible to play as early as next Monday.

"There's a chance we get him back," Reid said. "We'll just have to see how all that goes, but there's a chance of that, yeah."

Nelson started in 15 games for Kansas City last season, recording 64 tackles (58 solo), 16 passes defensed, four tackles for loss and two fumble recoveries.
