Twelve Chiefs will not play in the second preseason game Friday against the Seattle Seahawks, including receiver De’Anthony Thomas, inside linebacker Josh Mauga and safety Sanders Commings.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Wednesday that all three would be questionable for the game because of their respective injuries. Thomas has a calf strain, while Mauga has an injured heel and Commings has knee inflammation.
Reid said Wednesday that eight of the other inactives ― quarterback Tyler Bray (torn ACL), left tackle Eric Fisher (high ankle sprain), right tackle Jeff Allen (MCL sprain), inside linebacker Justin March (torn meniscus), tight end Demetrius Harris (foot surgery), receiver Junior Hemingway (hip sprain), defensive tackle Dontari Poe (back surgery) and offensive tackle Tavon Rooks (shortness of breath) would not play in the game.
Bray, however, could be seen throwing routes to Harris on the field before the game for the first time.
Tackle Garrett Frye was not among those Reid initially listed as out for the game, but the team announced he would not play Friday. Frye returned to practice this week after missing several days because of a knee injury.
A handful of previously injured players could make their preseason debuts on Friday, including receiver Chris Conley (knee strain), defensive end Mike Catapano (groin), receiver Jeret Smith (hamstring), inside linebacker James-Michael Johnson (calf strain) and inside linebacker D.J. Alexander (high ankle sprain).
