  • Chiefs' Nick Bolton: May not suit up Week 18

    Bolton (wrist/abdomen) is tagged as questionable for Sunday's contest versus the Chargers. Bolton doesn't seem to be dealing with any serious health issues, as he was a full participant in all three practice sessions during Week 18 prep. However, the Chiefs are expected to rest multiple starters Sunday with the team locked into the No. 3 seed in the AFC, and Bolton could be among them. If the linebacker doesn't suit up, Leo Chenal could start in his place.

  • Chiefs' Nick Bolton: Gets day off due to illness

    Head coach Andy Reid said Bolton won't practice Thursday due to an illness in addition to wrist and abdominal injuries, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports. The wrist and abdominal injuries are ones that Bolton had already been managing heading into last week's 27-17 win over the Patriots, but the illness is a new concern for the linebacker as the Chiefs begin Week 16 prep. With the team not playing until Monday against the Raiders, the standout linebacker will still have two more opportunities to potentially get back on the practice field and clear up any concerns about his availability for the divisional matchup.
