Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and quarterback Patrick Mahomes met with the media on Wednesday morning before the team’s practice session. Here are the key takeaways from their interaction with the media:
Reid said that five players — Eric Berry, Cam Erving, Anthony Hitchens, Mitch Morse and Sammy Watkins — would not practice on Wednesday afternoon.
Reid said that Erving wasn’t injured; he’s been sick “for a couple of days.” Morse remains in concussion protocol, and Hitchens is still nursing his rib injury. Berry, of course, is still day to day with his heel issue — along with Watkins. Previously, Reid had referred to Watkins’ injury as an ankle problem, but on Wednesday, Reid said Watkins had “hurt his foot.” Reid said both Berry and Watkins are making progress.
