As the Kansas City Chiefs try to salvage what is left of a disappointing season, they will head into their Week 15 AFC West battle against the Oakland Raiders with 11 players on the team's injury report.
Wide Receiver Dwayne Bowe has been held out of practice all week with a rib injury and has already been ruled out for Sunday.
Tackle Branden Albert (back), defensive back Abram Elam (quad) and guard Russ Hochstein (back) were unable to practice Wednesday and Thursday. Elam sat out last Sunday's game and was not able to practice at all last week, while Albert was limited all of last week but was able to play last Sunday. It's possible the Chiefs could be resting Albert so he will be able to play against the Raiders.
Guard Ryan Lilja (knee), who has been on the injury report for much of the season, hasn't practiced all week, but he is expected to be available on Sunday.
Cornerback Brandon Flowers (hamstring), running back Cyrus Gray (shoulder/neck) and linebacker Derrick Johnson were all able to participate in a full practice on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday.
Offensive lineman Jon Asamoah (thumb) and defensive backs Eric Berry (hand) and Kendrick Lewis (shoulder) are all battling nagging injuries, but they have not been limited in practice and should be able to play against the Raiders.
Kickoff is slated for 3:25 p.m. CT at O.co Coliseum, and the game will be televised on CBS.
