Week 5: Thursday injury report

  Print article

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Chiefs starting inside linebacker Josh Mauga (groin, Achilles) missed a second straight day of practice Thursday.

Mauga’s status for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears is very much in the air. Rookie Ramik Wilson would likely get the start if Mauga can’t play.

The Chiefs list wide receiver Albert Wilson (shoulder) as a limited participant in practice for a second straight day.

Rookie Chris Conley, who started in place of Wilson in Week 4, would be the next player up if Wilson is inactive for a second straight week.

Tight ends Travis Kelce (groin, thumb) and rookie James O’Shaughnessy (hand) continue to practice fully.

The Bears made two adjustments to their injury report on Thursday.

Cornerback Sherrick McManis (hamstring) put in a limited practice after not practicing Wednesday. The Bears also added tackle Tayo Fabuluje to the report as a limited participant with an ankle injury.
