NFL Injury Update for Week 13: Joe Mixon and Jerick McKinnon

Injury Reports Chiefs - Bengals

There were a lot of questions surrounding the Chiefs heading into this season, and they’ve been able to answer them all so far. The Chiefs are first not only in the AFC West, but also in the AFC overall, so going on the road in this one will be difficult.

Jerick McKinnon (hamstring) practiced fully on Friday and is questionable for Sunday’s game at Cincinnati.

McKinnon has been dealing with a number of health issues for the past four weeks, but a strained hamstring has followed him into Week 13 preparation.

After missing practice on Wednesday and Thursday, he took every rep at Friday’s session, clearing him to play in the Chiefs’ backfield on Sunday.
