some notes

  • The same Chiefs who missed Wednesday’s workout — defensive end Mike Danna (calf) and kicker Harrison Butker (left ankle) — missed Thursday’s workout. Danna was once again on the field without a helmet, and Butker was once again absent.
  • Wide receiver Mecole Hardman (heel) was limited for the second straight day.
  • Two of the Colts’ most important players’ statuses remained the same from Wednesday to Thursday: wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. (quad) — who was again limited — and linebacker Shaquille Leonard (back), who was again a full participant.
  • The injury report came with good and bad news for the Colts. The good news was that defensive tackle DeForest Buckner (hip) was upgraded from a limited to full participant, while defensive end defensive end Yannick Ngakoue (back) was downgraded from a limited to non-participant. Indianapolis Star beat writer Nate Atkins suggested that the depth of the Colts’ defensive end position has much to prove.
