While the Buffalo Bills watch from home, the Kansas City Chiefs host the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship game Sunday at Arrowhead.
But the Chiefs now appear to be in grave danger of running out of star tight end Travis Kelce, who injured his back in practice Friday.
According to FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer, the Chiefs are “holding their breath” to see if Kelce can overcome his annoyance in pre-game warmups and prepare against the Bengals.
“Last practice play on Friday, he went up for a pass, back pinned,” Glazer said. “They don’t know yet if he can go. They’re calling it a game-time decision. They’re holding their breath with Travis Kelce, a guy who never misses any action.”
The Chiefs were already dealing with an injury scare with star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who injured his ankle in the AFC Divisional win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. However, he has no injury designation for Sunday.
Since his rookie season in which he played in just one game, Kelce has only lost a possible three games in his career. During the regular season, he finished eighth in receiving yards (1,338) and second in receiving touchdowns (12).
The Bengals and Chiefs kick off at 6:30 PM ET.
