Today’s injury report had a surprise. Rookie linebacker Marquel Lee practiced. It is a surprise considering he was carted off the field two weeks ago, looking like he could miss significant time with an ankle injury.
Lee was limited today in practice along with fellow linebacker Cory James the day after the team added NaVorro Bowman in the hopes he could take over at middle linebacker, perhaps even as soon as this week.
Missing from practice today was Marshall Newhouse who hadn’t participated in walk-thrus on Monday either. He suffered a foot injury in Sunday’s game, but returned after missing just one snap. Should he not be able to go, Vadal Alexander would take his place at right tackle. Keep in mind, Alexander has played just one series in the season opener and gave up a sack and a pressure that led to a sack.
Also still missing for the Raiders was Gareon Conley with his persistent shin injury.
There were no changes to the status of any Chiefs players.
