The Chiefs officially designate Wilson as questionable on the injury report.

“His shoulder is still bothering him a little bit,” coach Andy Reid told reporters Friday after practice. “We’ll just see how he does here in the next couple of days.”

Wilson has been dealing with the shoulder injury since the preseason and the Chiefs could turn to rookie Chris Conley (hip) if Wilson can’t go.

Other than Wilson, the Chiefs look fine with the other players on the report.

The Chiefs list Conley, wide receiver Jason Avant (knee), cornerback Jamell Fleming (hip) and linebacker Josh Mauga (Achilles) as probable after the quartet practiced fully for a third straight day.

The Bengals list starting safety George Iloka as doubtful with an ankle injury after he missed a third day of practice, while starting cornerback Adam Jones (elbow) is listed as questionable.

Jones practiced fully Friday and Thursday, however.
