The New England Patriots returned to practice Thursday with all but one exception on the active roster.

Safety Cody Davis remained sidelined for New England. Five others, including right guard Shaq Mason, participated in a limited capacity as the visit to the Kansas City Chiefs nears.

Here’s the updated injury report ahead of Sunday’s 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff at Arrowhead Stadium.


  • Patriots: S Cody Davis (rib)
  • Chiefs: no players listed

Davis has missed consecutive practices after suffering a rib injury while recovering an onside kick in New England’s 36-20 win over the Las Vegas Raiders at Gillette Stadium. The defensive back and personal punt protector’s 61 snaps on special teams are currently tied for the Patriots’ lead.

No member of the Kansas City roster has been sidelined from this week’s practices. The Chiefs placed rookie cornerback L’Jarius Sneed on injured reserve prior to the first injury report.


  • Patriots: RB Sony Michel (quad), WR Julian Edelman (knee), OT Isaiah Wynn (calf), G Shaq Mason (calf), DT Adam Butler (shoulder)
  • Chiefs: DT Chris Jones (groin)

Mason marks the new arrival on New England’s list of limited. A calf issue would be the reason on Thursday for the starting interior lineman. Mason is one of three Patriots to have played all 205 offensive snaps through the month of September.

Jones continued as a partial participant for the Chiefs due to a groin injury. The Pro Bowl and All-Pro defensive tackle registered two sacks and two forced fumbles in Kansas City’s 34-20 win Monday night against the Baltimore Ravens.


  • Patriots: no players listed
  • Chiefs: WR Tyreek Hill (heel), OT Mitchell Schwartz (ankle), G Andrew Wylie (illness), C Austin Reiter (knee), DT Derrick Nnadi (ankle), DE Alex Okafor (hamstring), CB Charvarius Ward (hand), S Juan Thornhill (knee)

No Patriots graduated from limited to full availability on Thursday.

Okafor would do so for the Chiefs while managing a hamstring ailment. The veteran defensive end, who last played in the season opener, joined seven others in that fashion for Kansas City.
