Week 5: Friday injury report

  Print article

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Chiefs officially ruled starting inside linebacker Josh Mauga (groin, Achilles) out for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears.

Mauga, who suffered the injury in Week 4, missed a third straight day of practice Friday.

Rookie inside linebacker Ramik Wilson is the top candidate to replace Mauga in Week 5 and would make his first NFL start. Wilson totaled eight tackles in relief of Mauga in Week 4.

The Chiefs list wide receiver Albert Wilson (shoulder) as questionable after his third straight day of limited participation in practice.

Wilson, who was inactive in Week 4, would likely be replaced by rookie wide receiver Chris Conley for a second straight week if Wilson is unavailable Sunday.

The Chiefs list tight ends Travis Kelce (groin, thumb) and rookie James O’Shaughnessy (hand) as probable after they put in a full practice the entire week.

Chicago lists a whopping 16 players on the final injury report.

The Bears designate starting safety Antrel Rolle (ankle) as doubtful, while quarterback Jay Culter (hamstring) is questionable.
