The Chiefs have not had wide receiver Mecole Hardman in the lineup for quite a while and his status for Sunday’s AFC Championship Game against the Bengals remains up in the air.

“I’m just going to take it day by day. He’s busting his tail,” Reid said, via Matt McMullen of the team’s website. “We’ll just see how it rolls.”

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes (ankle) was a full participant for the second day in a row. Linebacker Willie Gay (toe) and running back Jerick McKinnon (ankle) also got in full practice sessions.
