Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman sustained a thumb injury during the first half of Monday Night Football, and his return to the game is uncertain as he is listed as questionable. In the limited time he spent on the field, he managed to make one catch for 5 yards. In light of his potential absence, the Chiefs have other players such as Rashee Rice, Kadarius Toney, Justin Watson, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling to fill the position.
At the time of the injury, the game was tied at 7-7, with both quarterbacks having thrown interceptions. L’Jarius Sneed intercepted a throw from Jalen Hurts to A.J. Brown, who had changed his route and was open for a potential touchdown, but Hurts’ pass fell short. Following this, the Chiefs advanced to the Philadephia 14-yard line, where Kevin Byard intercepted a pass from Patrick Mahomes intended for Justin Watson, the player who scored the team’s only touchdown.
