The Chiefs are limping to finish line with a number of injuries piling up prior to a Week 17 AFC Championship rematch against the Bengals.
Five players missed practice Thursday and suddenly, the Chiefs don't have an active running back due to Clyde Edwards-Helaire suffering from an illness.
We might see a very different lineup this week than normal. Here's the latest:
Chiefs Injury Report: Five Players Not Practicing
There's no reason to think that Edwards-Helaire will miss Sunday's contest, though it looks unlikely that Pacheco will play.
With Jerick McKinnon already on the Injured Reserve list, the team will likely activate La'Mical Perine to serve as Clyde's backup against the Bengals.
Wayna Morris seems set to draw another start at left tackle. The biggest concern, in my opinion, is L'Jarius Sneed's continued absence. If he can't go, the Chiefs will be thin in the secondary given a rash of other injuries.
Kansas City still sits as a large favorite over Cincinnati, but the odds may go closer to the Bengals' favor if this injury report stays so lengthy.
