In the first half of Monday Night Football, Chiefs receiver Mecole Hardman suffered a thumb injury and is currently listed as questionable to return to the game. Despite his injury, Hardman managed to make one catch for 5 yards before exiting the field.
The Chiefs have several other players who can take over at the position in Hardman’s absence, including Rashee Rice, Kadarius Toney, Justin Watson, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. These players have been waiting for their opportunity to shine and could potentially make a big impact on the game.
At this point in the game, the score remains tied at 7-7 with both quarterbacks having thrown interceptions. The Chiefs intercepted Jalen Hurts on a throw to A.J. Brown due to changing his route, but the pass was underthrown. The team 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.
