Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce has a slightly sprained ankle, coach Andy Reid said Tuesday.

Reid added that Kelce could likely play this week if the Chiefs had a regular-season game. They end the preseason Thursday at St. Louis, and Reid said the Chiefs’ No. 2 units would likely start against the Rams.

Reid also said Kelce’s injury was not a high ankle sprain, which is more serious.

Kelce missed practice Tuesday, a day after he left practice early and walked off the field because of a leg injury.
