Chiefs Injury Update: Safety Eric Murray Misses Practice on Wednesday

The second-year safety won’t practice Wednesday as the Chiefs begin preparations for the Jets

At his usual Wednesday afternoon presser, Kansas City Chiefs' head coach Andy Reid gave his most up-to-date injury report, which included a new name.

Second-year safety Eric Murray suffered what Reid described as a "high ankle sprain" during last Sunday's loss to the Buffalo Bills, and he won't practice on Wednesday.

Murray finished the game with a tackle on 16 snaps played on defense, and 19 on special teams.

Here's all of what Reid had to say about injuries on Wednesday:

"The fellas who won't practice (Wednesday) are [Ukeme] Eligwe—he's got Achilles inflammation, Dee Ford still with the back, and Eric Murray has a high ankle sprain that he got in the game," Reid said. "We look forward to the opportunity to playing the Jets. Again, we'll start our practice out here today and we're working on getting better."

Eligwe reported his Achilles issue before Sunday's game and was ultimately declared inactive, while Ford has missed the last three games with the back issue.

The Chiefs travel to take on the Jets Sunday afternoon.
