We've been worried all week that Isiah Pacheco would miss Week 17 against the Bengals as he recovers from concussion protocol, but Chiefs Kingdom got relieving news today on his status.

While several players are still not practicing, Pacheco was back on the field Friday, indicating he'll likely play on Sunday.

Here's the latest on his status:

Chiefs Injury News: Isiah Pacheco Returns to Practice

Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Donovan Smith, L'Jarius Sneed and Kadarius Toney all missed practice Friday, but Pacheco's return is a huge boost to the Chiefs' chances of winning.

He hasn't officially cleared concussion protocol but I'm much more optimistic now that he'll be good to go. Pacheco has over 1,000 yards from scrimmage with eight total TDs, serving as the most consistent player on the Chiefs' offense when he's on the field.

Sneed would be a massive loss for this team. Ja'Marr Chase is one of the NFL's best receivers and Sneed typically shadows the top opposing receiver.

If Sneed can't go, it'll be a huge test for McDuffie. Kansas City is still a huge favorite, though fingers crossed Sneed gets back on the field.
