Kansas City Chiefs Injury Report, Week 17: RB Jackie Battle Misses Practice Thursday

The Kansas City Chiefs released an updated injury report on Thursday that includes just three players: running back Jackie Battle (foot), wide receiver Jeremy Horne (illness) and safety Jon McGraw (ankle) did not participate in practice. Horne is a new addition to the injury report.

Chiefs blog Arrowhead Pride doesn't expect Battle to play against the Denver Broncos on Sunday:

As of Wednesday, Romeo Crennel said Battle was doubtful to play on Sunday. He was in a walking boot and didn't practice on Thursday. I'd say don't count on him playing this weekend.

Battle is the team's leading rusher this season with 597 yards on 149 carries. Thomas Jones is second on the team in rushing and could see more work in Battle's absence.
