The New England Patriots will face the Kansas City Chiefs without one.

New England ruled out Cody Davis on Friday due to a rib injury that has sidelined the safety and core special-teamer for three consecutive practices. An additional five members of the active roster have officially been listed as questionable for the visit to Arrowhead Stadium, including running back Sony Michel and right guard Shaq Mason.

Here’s the final injury report heading into Sunday’s 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff.


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

Davis remained down on the field after recovering an onside kick in New England’s 36-20 win over the Las Vegas Raiders. Through the month of September, his 61 snaps in the kicking game were tied with linebacker Brandon Copeland for the team lead. Davis has served as the personal punt protector for the Patriots. The former Los Angeles Ram and Jacksonville Jaguar stands with a trio of tackles versus returners on the campaign.

No Chiefs have been ruled out in the days since rookie cornerback L’Jarius Sneed went on injured reserve as a result of a broken collarbone.


  • 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)

Each of New England’s questionable would be limited on Friday. Michel and Mason surfaced on the injury report Wednesday and Thursday, respectively, with quad and calf ailments. Michel averaged 13 yards per carry in his most recent outing, while Mason has played every offensive down since the regular season got underway.

Eight players on Kansas City’s side will go without game statuses after working in full once again. The lone player questionable for the meeting with New England is Jones, who practiced throughout the week in a partial capacity because of a groin issue. The 2018 All-Pro and 2019 Pro Bowler has totaled 3.5 sacks and a pair of forced fumbles thus far in 2020.
