KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid provided a brief update about the team on Friday. Following are his comments.
OPENING STATEMENT: “Alright, so the only person who is going to be listed as out will be Damien Williams. Everybody else practiced today and did a good job. Sammy (Watkins) is back. Sammy had a little bit of the flu, but he’s back and ready to go. We look forward to the challenge of playing the Raiders in a great atmosphere at Arrowhead. It’s against a good football team. There’s nothing like the Raiders and the Chiefs playing. Again, we look forward to it. Our guys have had a good week of practice and again an opportunity to play against a good team. With that, time is yours.”
Q: Do you expect to have Sammy Watkins on Sunday?
REID: “Yeah, he’s OK. He worked today.”
Q: We didn’t mention the red zone on both sides of the football on Wednesday, was that something you looked at during the bye week, where you could improve on both sides?
REID: “Going back just offensively, the penalties down there have hurt us. Other than that the execution has been pretty good, but we have to take care of the penalties. That kind of falls into a bunch of different categories. Defensively we have looked at that too, but there have been some good things there.”
Q: Is it safe to say LeSean McCoy will be the first back to touch the ball?
REID: “We’ll see. We got packages we use and all that so I can’t guarantee anything.”
