For the first time this week, safety Husain Abdullah and linebacker Dee Ford participated in Chiefs practice on Thursday.

Abdullah had returned from a concussion but took time earlier for a non-injury related reasons. On Saturday, Abdullah posted on Twitter that his father had died. Abdullah missed the final five regular-season games.

Ford had been undergoing concussion protocol.

Center Mitch Morse, who also is dealing with a concussion, did not participate on Thursday. If Morse can’t go, Zach Fulton is expected to start.

Tamba Hali also didn’t practice, but that’s been the norm throughout the season as the Chiefs look to give their veteran linebacker rest during the week.
