Travis Kelce’s Neck Injury Adds Doubt to Kansas City Chiefs’ Final Regular Season Game Against LA Chargers

Kelce’s Neck Injury Raises Doubt

Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs’ tight end, faced limited practice sessions due to a neck injury ahead of the team’s final regular-season game against the LA Chargers.

Coach Andy Reid hinted earlier about potential resting of regular starters for this game since the Chiefs have secured the No. 3 seed in the playoffs.

Uncertainty Surrounding Kelce’s Participation

With the playoffs secured and Kelce’s neck injury listing him as ‘limited’ in practice, uncertainty looms over his availability for the upcoming game at SoFi Stadium against the Chargers.

The Chiefs secured a playoff spot and their eighth consecutive AFC West championship with a recent win against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Reid’s Statements on Resting Players

Coach Reid confirmed that multiple starters won’t feature against the Chargers due to the secured playoff berth. However, Reid hasn’t definitively addressed Kelce’s playing time for Sunday’s game.

Discussions about players’ milestones and achievements in this final game are open-ended, as Reid mentioned it “depends” on the accomplishments.

Mahomes’ Absence Confirmed

Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs’ quarterback, will not participate in this final regular-season game. While this season hasn’t met all expectations for the Chiefs, this game holds no significance in their final position in the league.

Gabbert’s Opportunity to Start

The decision to potentially rest key players, including Kelce, provides an opportunity for backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert to start his first game for the Chiefs after joining the team in the offseason.
