The Kansas City Chiefs were hampered by the absence of Travis Kelce on Thursday.
Mahomes had a difficult time connecting with his receivers, who also struggled throughout the game.
The hungry Detroit Lions upset the Chiefs in Week 1. An update on Sunday should reassure Kansas City's Kelce.Jay Glazer updated Kelce on Fox NFL Sunday pregame.
Ari Meirov said, “The Chiefs were initially concerned that TE Travis Kelce suffered a season-ending tibia plateau fracture during Tuesday's practice, per @JayGlazer.
Since discovering his ‘very deep’ bone bruise, Kelce has improved daily. After running tomorrow, he should be ready for Week 2 against the Jaguars if there is no swelling.
Kelce looked ready for Week 2 against the Jaguars, as the Chiefs hoped. Travis, KC, and the NFL benefit from his low absence rate.
Kelce is a great player regardless of your Chiefs and Kelce thoughts. His absence, especially for injury, is unfortunate. That seems unlikely, thankfully.
The NFL was abuzz after Travis Kelce's update.
