The Chiefs closed the regular season without wide
receiver Sammy Watkins , safety Eric Berry or running back Spencer Ware in the lineup, but Tuesday brought some encouraging signs for their chances of having them in the lineup for Saturday’s game against the Colts.All three players are expected to practice in some capacity as the team kicks off their on-field work for the week. Linebacker Dorian O'Daniel is the only player set to miss practice as he deals with calf and ankle trouble.Watkins has missed five straight games and six of the last seven while dealing with a foot injury. He had 40 catches for 519 yards and three touchdowns before his extended absence to close the regular season.Berry missed the first 13 games of the year with a heel injury and played a limited number of snaps in two games before sitting out against the Raiders. Ware sat out the final three weeks of the year with a hamstring injury. The NFL will hold its supplemental draft on Wednesday and one of the players considered to be a likely selection spent some time with one of the league’s teams on Tuesday.Agent Brad Cicala told Tom Pelissero of NFL Media that his client Jalen Thompson visited with the Packers on Tuesday. In addition to any conversations that might have taken place, Thompson took a physical with the team’s medical staff.The results of the safety’s physical will be shared with the other 31 teams in the draft.Thompson held a workout in Los Angeles on Monday that was reportedly attended by representatives of 26 teams. Falcons coaches ran the drills for that workout and the Patriots Peyton Manning Jersey , Rams, Dolphins, Colts and Cardinals were reported to have interest in him.Thompson is one of five players eligible for selection in the supplemental draft. He and West Virginia wide receiver Marcus Simms are considered the likeliest selections. Any team picking a player in the supplemental draft will forfeit their pick from the same round in the 2020 draft.Syracuse linebacker Shyheim Cullen Al Woods Color Rush Jersey , Northland tight end Devonaire Clarington and St. Francis defensive back Bryant Perry are the other players in the draft pool.
