KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce (ribs) put in a full practice Thursday after being limited Wednesday.

Kelce’s upgrade is the only significant change on Thursday’s injury report ahead of Sunday’s game against the New York Jets.

The Chiefs list strong safety Eric Berry (ankle) and cornerback Chris Owens (knee) as limited for the second straight day, raising optimism for the duo’s availability in Week 8.

Berry, of course, hasn’t played since Week 2, while Owens missed the last two games after suffering his injury in Week 5.

Cornerback Jamell Fleming (hamstring) and linebacker Josh Martin (hamstring) missed a second straight day of practice.

The Chiefs list the following as putting in a full practice: Kelce, running back Jamaal Charles (back), tight end Anthony Fasano (shoulder), cornerback Phillip Gaines (quadricep), running back Cyrus Gray (hand), wide receiver Junior Hemingway (hamstring), guard Mike McGlynn (foot), quarterback Alex Smith (right shoulder) and cornerback Sean Smith (groin).

Meanwhile, the Jets appeared healthier on Thursday’s report.

Wide reciver Jeremy Kerly, who missed Wednesday’s practice with an illness, returned to a full practice.

Tackle Oday Aboushi (shoulder), guard Willie Colon (knee), linebacker David Harris (shoulder), linebacker Trevor Reilly (knee) and quarterback Geno Smith (right shoulder) put in a full practice Thursday after being limited Wednesday.
