The tight end isn’t the only star player to sustain a non-contact injury on artificial grass this season. New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers sustained a season-ending left Achilles tear at MetLife Stadium during his first drive ever with the team.
More recently, Minnesota Vikings star wideout Justin Jefferson was placed on injured reserve Wednesday after slipping on U.S. Bank Stadium’s slit-film turf. Jefferson’s hamstring injury occurred during the same matchup that saw Kelce’s exit and return.
While the Vikings play in one of just three stadiums still using slit-film turf, Jason Kelce emphasized that all kinds of turf should be eradicated.
As the Chiefs await the verdict on Kelce’s availability, the team anticipates an important return on defense.
Nick Bolton has no designation on the report. He has been cleared to return and is expected to take the field against the Broncos, according to ESPN’s Adam Teicher. This will be Bolton’s first game since the team’s 17-9 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sept. 17. He missed the last three games with an ankle injury.
Meanwhile, the Broncos could see the return of tight end Greg Dulcich. He is listed as questionable on the team’s injury report, which also says he was a full practice participant Wednesday after being limited Tuesday.
Dulcich snagged two catches in Week 1 before sustaining an injury against the Raiders. To play, he would need to be activated to the team’s 53-man roster.
Denver ruled out two players, outside linebacker Frank Clark (illness) and defensive tackle D.J. Jones (knee).
