Chiefs Injury Update: Five Players Miss Practice on Tuesday

Head Coach Andy Reid provided an update on the Chiefs’ injured players prior to practice

The Kansas City Chiefs were back at practice on Tuesday with five players sidelined due to injuries.

Head Coach Andy Reid provided an update on the players not slated to hit the field prior to practice.

"As far as injuries go, [defensive tackle Allen] Bailey is still working through his knee sprain, but he's getting better. [Safety] Eric Berry, likewise, is also working through [his injury]," Reid said. "[Offensive guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif] is still in the concussion protocol, as is [cornerback] Steve Nelson. Then Daniel Sorensen, as you know, has a knee [injury]. Those are the guys that won't practice today – everybody else will practice and get some work done."

Reid went on to further elaborate on Berry, who has been battling a sore heel.

"He came out and he practiced the first couple weeks [at Training Camp] and did pretty well, I just don't want to go backwards [with his injury]," Reid said. "I'm comfortable with where he's going with this thing and I want to keep it that way."

Reid also provided an update on linebackers Reggie Ragland (knee) and Anthony Hitchens (hamstring), who have yet to see the field this preseason.

"If they can go, they'll be out there. There's a good chance they play in this game, but we'll just see how the practices go," Reid said. "They feel pretty good, so that's a positive."

Also practicing on Tuesday is tailback Charcandrick West, who has been working his way back from a concussion.

"Charcandrick should get some work today, we'll see how he does, but he says he feels good and the docs have given him the OK," Reid said. "We'll be in pads today, so it will be good for him to get out there and move around."

Here's a look at the players not scheduled to practice on Tuesday.
