Reid has already confirmed that star quarterback Patrick Mahomes will be rested ahead of their playoff campaign, and on Friday he revealed that four more starters will not be playing.
Wide receivers Rashee Rice and Kadarius Toney, offensive tackle Donovan Smith and cornerback L’Jarius Sneed are all inactive to round off the Chiefs’ regular season while struggling with minor injuries.
However, there was no official word on whether Kelce’s legs will be saved as he targets a milestone eighth-consecutive 1,000-yard-receiving season with just 16 yards remaining.
Despite being limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday due to a neck issue, Reid says no final decision has been made on whether Kelce will line up against the Chargers at So-Fi Stadium.
When the Chiefs coach was recently asked about the players that were close to milestones playing against Los Angeles, Reid said it ‘depends’ on what the accomplishment is.
Then a reporter asked directly about Kelce’s chance at an eighth-consecutive 1,000-yard-receiving season. ‘We’ll see how all that goes,’ he said.
Meanwhile Taylor Swift, who rang in the holidays with her new man in Kansas City last weekend, flew directly to Los Angeles on Tuesday, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal, and was spotted leaving the tony DogPound gym in West Hollywood after a Thursday morning workout.
Meanwhile, Mahomes, despite not playing in the Week 18 matchup, looked dapper as he as strolled down the airplane steps in a three-piece suit.
