The Chiefs are set to have their full complement of players on Sunday at Oakland.

Outside linebacker Tamba Hali (knee) was the only player who missed practice Friday, but Chiefs coach Andy Reid said that was just to keep Hali’s knees fresh and that he will play Sunday.

Reid said cornerback Phillip Gaines, who missed the Chiefs’ last game after tweaking his knee in practice, was a full participant Friday, and all week, and will play Sunday.

Running back Charcandrick West, who also missed the Chiefs’ last game, because of an ankle injury, also practiced all week and will play Sunday.

Reid said there’s a chance recently signed outside linebacker Sio Moore, who missed practice Wednesday because of the flu, will play Sunday.

“He was getting acclimated, it looks like he can run a little bit,” Reid said. “We know that from when he was at Oakland, but again, he’s just learning right now ... we have to sort that all out.”

Raiders injury report

The Raiders have a number of contributors who have either been ruled out for Sunday’s game or are listed as questionable.

Right tackle Menelik Watson (calf), running back Latavius Murray (toe) and Vadal Alexander (ankle) won’t play.

Starters who have been ruled questionable include linebacker Malcolm Smith (quad) and running back Taiwan Jones (knee).
