Chiefs have Travis Kelce available; Broncos get Greg Dulcich back for AFC West matchup
All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce was active for the Kansas City Chiefs against the Denver Broncos on Thursday night after hurting his ankle before finishing out last weekend’s win over the Minnesota Vikings
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — All-Pro tight end Travis Kelce was active for the Kansas City Chiefs against the Denver Broncos on Thursday night after hurting his ankle before finishing out last weekend's win over the Minnesota Vikings.
Kelce was limited in practice Tuesday and there was some question whether the quick turnaround from last Sunday would be enough time for his ankle to heal sufficiently. He was listed as questionable on the final injury report but on the field for pregame warmups, giving quarterback Patrick Mahomes his most reliable and productive option in the passing game.
“He’s always been honest with me on things like that,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said this week, "so we’ll just see how he does. But he’s doing OK out there (in practice) so we’ll see how it goes.”
The Broncos also had their top tight end after activating Greg Dulcich from injured reserve. A third-round pick out of UCLA a year ago, Dulcich had not played since Week 1, when he had two catches for 22 yards against the Las Vegas Raiders before he hurt his hamstring and landed on the IR list.
