The Kansas City Chiefs are currently tied with the Philadelphia Eagles at 7-7 in their Monday Night Football matchup. Mecole Hardman, one of the Chiefs’ receivers, suffered a thumb injury in the first half and is listed as questionable to return to the game. Despite his injury, Hardman managed to make one catch for 5 yards before being sidelined.
In his absence, the Chiefs have several other players who can take over at the position, including Rashee Rice, Kadarius Toney, Justin Watson, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. These players have been instrumental in keeping the score close and giving the team a chance to come back from behind.
At this point in the game, both quarterbacks have thrown interceptions. L’Jarius Sneed intercepted Jalen Hurts on a throw to A.J. Brown, who was wide open due to changing his route, but the pass was underthrown. The Chiefs then advanced to the Philadelphia 14, only for Kevin Byard to intercept Patrick Mahomes in the end zone on a pass intended for Justin Watson, who was responsible for the team’s only touchdown so far.
