* DNP = Did not participate | LP = Limited participation | FP = Full participation | NIR = Not injury related It was reported ahead of practice that practically everyone would work for the Chiefs on Wednesday and that was exactly what happened. The only players who didn’t work were Eric Fisher and Willie Gay Jr., who both recently suffered season-ending injuries. Players like Sammy Watkins and Le’Veon Bell, who were downgraded to non-participants last Friday, returned to practice in a limited capacity. That’s good news as it relates to their potential availability come Sunday, but monitor both as the practice week progresses.

* DNP = Did not participate | LP = Limited participation | FP = Full participation | NIR = Not injury related The lone non-participant for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was OLB Jason Pierre-Paul. The veteran pass-rusher remains sidelined by a knee injury and without a practice today, his status for the game is in doubt. Pierre-Paul had some incendiary comments about Chiefs OT Mike Remmers earlier this week. Others who didn’t practice in full for the Bucs include Antonio Brown, Jordan Whitehead and Antoine Winfield. Each of those players was limited in practice and should be expected to play in Super Bowl LV, but it’s worth monitoring their status for any setbacks as the week progresses.
