The Tennessee Titans will face off against the Kansas City Chiefs in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game (3:05 p.m. ET on CBS).
We’re tracking key injuries for both teams in the run-up to kickoff. You’ll find the latest news with our daily updates outlined below.
Titans vs. Chiefs Injury Report: Conference Championship
TE Travis Kelce (knee) was removed from Friday’s injury report, which was expected.
The chiefs have two players listed as questionable: DL Chris Jones (calf) and RB LeSean McCoy (illness). Both got in limited practices on Friday, which is encouraging. Jones is the most crucial player because he’s one of the league’s best pass-rushers. Meanwhile, McCoy didn’t record a single touch last week.
CB Logan Ryan was removed from the Titans’ injury report, but every other player was listed as questionable. Considering they all got in limited practices throughout the week, it’s likely most of them are trending toward playing. WR Adam Humphries (ankle) could make his first appearance since Week 13.
The Chiefs’ injury report is the same as it was on Wednesday. DL Chris Jones (calf) is still considered “day-to-day.” The missed practices aren’t encouraging for his outlook on Sunday, but Jones is the type of player that could still play without logging a practice.
Tennessee’s report also remained the same, but CB Logan Ryan (illness) was upgraded to a full practice. Overall, the Titans are quite healthy heading into this game.
As expected, TE Travis Kelce (knee) is back on the injury report. It’d be hard to believe he actually sits out the Conference Championship this weekend. His limited session suggests he’s still trending towards playing. The Chiefs have a sickness bug going through the locker room and RB LeSean McCoy was one of those victims after he missed practice. That said, it probably doesn’t matter all that much. The elderly McCoy didn’t touch the ball once last week.
The Titans have two of their cornerbacks on the injury report in Logan Ryan (illness) and Adoree Jackson (ankle). Jackson missed most of the practices last week and still played, so I’d expect him to play. WR Adam Humphries (ankle) was able to practice for the first time since Week 12, so it looks like there’s a chance he could end up playing against the Chiefs.
Both teams are quite healthy heading into this game. DL Chris Jones (calf) is the main injury to monitor right now since he didn’t suit up on Sunday. Head coach Andy Reid said he’s considered day-to-day.
Given TE Travis Kelce was in and out of last week’s game with a hamstring injury, he may make an appearance on the Chiefs’ injury report once they’re released on Wednesday. And if he’s not, then he must be in pretty good shape.
