The Kansas City Chiefs are still fighting for the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoff race this weekend.
Kansas City faces off against the Las Vegas Raiders with everything to play for. Unfortunately it sounds like the team will be a little bit short-handed on Saturday night.
Skyy Moore (hand) won’t play on Saturday, per Coach Reid.
Harrison Butker did practice today, but there’s a chance they bring someone else in as a precaution.
Mecole Hardman is “day-to-day,” per Coach. Joe Thuney (ankle) and L’Jarius Sneed (hip) practiced today.

Head coach Andy Reid announced that wide receiver Skyy Moore won’t play against the Raiders after suffered a hand laceration. Moore is coming off of one of his better games of the season.
The rookie wide receiver hauled in three passes for 33 yards during the team’s 27-24 win over the Denver Broncos.
Without Moore on the field this weekend, fellow wide receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling should see increased targets. Add in star tight end Travis Kelce and the Chiefs should be just fine on offense. Kansas City and Las Vegas kick off at 4:30 p.m. ET on ESPN and ABC.
