Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce could return for his team’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
Kelce hyperextended his knee in practice last week and missed the reigning Super Bowl champions’ 21-20 loss to the Detroit Lions but head coach Andy Reid says the 33-year-old’s fitness is improving.
“Travis is getting better. We’ll see how he does the rest of today or tomorrow and we’ll go from there,” Reid said.
In Kelsey’s absence against the Lions, backup tight ends Noah Gray and Blake Bell combined to catch five passes for 43 yards.

Meanwhile, Kadarius Toney caught as many of the eight drops by the Kansas receivers.
We’ll take care of the reception stuff,” Reid added. “I feel very good about the receivers we have.
“We’re not normally the ones to drop the ball but we did and we have to fix that. I think there’s talent that will continue to improve as they keep playing. I’ve seen them do that before. I think we’ll get this worked out.”

“We all have to do better. That’s the thing I take away from this. Whether it’s training, playing, O-line, D-line – we can all take something from this game and get better at it. .
“There were good and not-so-good periods and we were in a position to win the game. Normally we do that and we didn’t.”
