KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Chiefs running back Spencer Ware (rib) missed a second straight day of practice, putting his status for Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens in the air.

Ware, who suffered the injury in Week 14, was on the field without his helmet observing teammates during the portion of practice open to the media. The Chiefs currently have two healthy running backs on the roster: Charcandrick West and Knile Davis.

Wide receiver De’Anthony Thomas continues to miss practice after suffering a concussion in Week 11. The second-year pro hasn’t played since.

Safety Husain Abdullah (concussion) and linebacker Justin Houston (knee) also didn’t practice.

Guard Jeff Allen (ankle) put in a limited practice after being a full participant Wednesday.

Outside linebacker Tamba Hali (knee) returned to a full practice Thursday after sitting out Wednesday, as has become customary for the 10th-year veteran.

Defensive end Mike DeVito (concussion, shoulder) and tight end Travis Kelce (groin, quadriceps) continue to put in full practices.

The Ravens added two players to Thursday’s report: Linebacker Daryl Smith (not injury related) and running back Terrence West (calf). Smith did not practice, while West was limited.

Quarterback Matt Schaub (chest) put in a full practice Thursday after being limited Wednesday. Schaub is the likely starter Sunday barring a setback.
