Three key offensive players on Patriots' first injury report for Week 4

Patriots

Beating the Kansas City Chiefs is hard enough with a healthy roster, and the task gets increasingly more difficult if key players are injured and unable to play.

The New England Patriots are hoping to have as close to a full roster as possible for Sunday afternoon's much-anticipated Week 4 matchup versus the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.

The Patriots had one player, defensive back Cody Davis (rib), not participate in Wednesday's practice. Four players were limited, including three important offensive players in left tackle Isaiah Wynn (calf), running back Sony Michel (quad) and wide receiver Julian Edelman (knee).

The Chiefs had two players limited at Wednesday's practice, including defensive star Chris Jones. The veteran defensive tackle is dealing with a groin injury. Jones is off to a fine start this season with 12 tackles, 3.5 sacks and two forced fumbles through three games.

Notable Chiefs players listed on the injury report who were full participants include wide receiver Tyreek Hill (heel) and offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz (ankle).
