Marcus Peters was a limited practice participant for the second straight day Thursday, the best indication the Chiefs’ star cornerback could play against the Denver Broncos on Sunday.
Peters, who is among the league leaders in takeaways with eight, missed the Chiefs’ last game, a 19-17 loss to Tampa Bay, because of a hip injury.
Nose tackle Dontari Poe (back), running back Charcandrick West (concussion), and inside linebacker Derrick Johnson (Achilles) all practiced Thursday after sitting out Wednesday. Johnson and West were full participants while Poe was limited.
Outside linebacker Dee Ford (hamstring), receiver Jeremy Maclin (groin), defensive tackle Jaye Howard (hip) and defensive end Kendall Reyes (knee) all missed practice for the second straight day.
Cornerback Steven Nelson, who was a full participant on Wednesday, also sat out Thursday due to a neck injury.
▪ The Chiefs have filled their vacant roster spot by signing cornerback Terrance Mitchell from the practice squad. Linebacker Earl Okine takes his place on the practice squad.
