Chiefs Injury Update: Travis Kelce full participant in practice

By on 11/01/2014 08:00:00 AM

The Kansas City Chiefs are starting to look like the same team that made a playoff run in 2013. After a two game slide to begin this season, an increase in offensive production has helped them win four of their last five. Tight end Travis Kelce, who missed the entirety of his rookie year with a fractured leg, has been a major factor in the turnaround.

Kelce entered week eight with a rib issue, but luckily for the Chiefs, he his condition has improved all week. He was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday, but practiced in full on both Thursday and Friday.

In his second season out of the University of Cincinnati, the 25-year-old Kelce has accumulated 352 yards and three touchdowns on 28 receptions.

It is reasonable to assume that Kelce will be looked to early and often against a solid Jets pass rush, as they have a knack for hurrying opposing quarterbacks. Sitting at 1-7 the Jets are an easily overlooked adversary, however they have not given up hope of resurrecting their season.

The Chiefs cannot afford to slip up on Sunday, as they are still in prime position to take a hold of second place in the AFC West. If all goes well for the 4-3 Chiefs, they could be on a three game winning streak as they head into a week nine matchup against the Buffalo Bills.
