Andy Reid provided updates on some of the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday afternoon during a conference call with the media.

Quarterback Tyler Bray (chip fracture in cervical spine)

"I'll have to see on that today. It's more of kind of the muscles in that scapula area, just calming down, and it looked like he was heading in that direction. We took him on the trip with us, so they could keep an eye on him with the rehab on all that. I think he's making pretty good progress there."

Running back Jamaal Charles (ACL tear)

"Every day, we've kind of increased his workload, so we'll continue to do that. I wouldn't expect him to play this week [against Chicago], but we'll get him in there with a little bit more practice."

Cornerback Phillip Gaines (ACL tear)

"Gaines had his most productive practice on Thursday, so we'll keep bringing him along, so there is a chance that he'd be ready this week possibly."

Linebacker Tamba Hali (offseason knee surgery)

"There's a chance we bring Tamba along slowly here. I'll know more on that today. We just have to see how he does as we introduce him back to practice."

RB Charcandrick West (mild elbow sprain)

"Charcandrick has a pretty good chance of being there this week. I've got to see. I'll be more comfortable telling you this when the doctors see him. They're a little bit better of an indicator. We've got a couple days here, so we'll get through today and then tomorrow is a normal, in-season Tuesday."

Reid provided no updates on linebacker Josh Mauga (groin) or Rakeem Nunez-Roches (back spasms), who both missed Saturday's game. There was also no update on fullback Trey Millard, who left the game early with a knee sprain.
