The veteran was targeted four times. The fact that the Chiefs were behind the entire second half likely played into his boosted playing time, however, so he'll likely continue seeing limited action, with a ceiling near the 38 snaps (54 percent) he saw against the Packers.
Brown returned to a full practice Friday, after logging limited sessions Wednesday and Thursday. He's played a clear second fiddle to Larry Fitzgerald so far, but Brown at least doesn't seem to be in much danger of losing the No. 2 role to Michael Floyd. Furthermore, the general perception of the gap between Fitzgerald and Brown is likely wider than the reality.
Ellington was limited throughout the week of practice, and while it won't be surprising if the third-year back suits up, head coach Bruce Arians said Chris Johnson will get the start. It thus seems Ellington will mostly be limited to passing-down work, if he does in fact play.
Between the late (4:25 PM ET) kickoff and limited role, Ellington doesn't hold much Week 4 appeal. His season-long value also appears to be in danger, as Johnson may hold on to the starting job.
Okafor logged full practices Thursday and Friday, setting him up for his normal workload in Sunday's game against the Rams. St. Louis has only surrendered five sacks this season, but Nick Foles has only attempted 87 passes.
