Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid told media on September 20 about multiple new injuries from Week 2.
“Wide receiver Richie James, knee, he has an MCL [injury],” Reid said of the players who will not practice on Wednesday.
Isiah Pacheco will not practice due to a hamstring injury.
Kadarius Toney has a sprained toe, Nick Bolton and Willie Gay have ankles and quad contusions.
“Richie might be a little bit longer,” he said of the wide receiver/returner, explaining that James might “possibly” miss time.
Most Chiefs Kingdom fans were thrilled about James in Week 1. The shifty youngster caught 44 yards and a score in his first preseason game.
James had only one grab for six yards off three Patrick Mahomes II targets in Weeks 1 and 2 before this injury.
If the Chiefs need an impact return, they may use Moore or Toney. Both are energetic in free space, but injury or change may deter them.
