Chiefs Sporting League’s Shortest Injury Report

When the Oakland Raiders visit Arrowhead Stadium on Christmas Eve, they will face a Kansas City Chiefs team operating as close to full strength as possible.

The Chiefs are sporting a league-low two names on their injury report for the must-win game against the Raiders.  Better yet, only one of the players, Casey Wiegmann, is an addition from last week’s game against the Green Bay Packers.

Wiegmann was a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice with a calf injury.  This is a different injury than the one that recently put the center on the injury report.  That was for a finger injury that didn’t knock him out of action and it’s hard to imagine this one will either, especially with his consecutive snaps streak still going strong.

Safety Jon McGraw is the other member of the Chiefs report as he was also a limited participant.  He is dealing with an ankle injury that cost him practice time last week and forced him onto the inactive list on gameday against the Green Bay Packers.

The Raiders, like most teams in the league, have a much lengthier injury report consisting of 16 players.  Oakland had six players unable to participate in practice, including star running back Darren McFadden.
