Home » Chiefs vs Raiders: NFL Week 18 injury report

The Kansas City Chiefs, a team that will be playing motivated football on Saturday, will be in Las Vegas on January 7th, 2023. They are -9.5 (bet365) on the spread for the game as they prepare to face the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 18 (Saturday). The Raiders themselves have nothing to play for following a loss in Week 17 that eliminated them from playoff contention.

The injury report for the game has recently been updated (the link exits to one of the team’s official websites for updates). Here’s a summary of the main points that bettors should be aware of ahead of placing bets on this game.

Josh Jacobs: DNP on Wednesday after practice

  • DNP: did not participate in practice
  • LP: limited participant in practice
  • FP: full participant in practice

The injury report listed Josh Jacobs, the running back for Las Vegas. Jacobs, as of Wednesday after practice, has a few problems, described in the report as “Hip/Oblique/NIR-Personal.” It should be noted that Jacobs has an excellent chance to lead the NFL in rushing yards this season. He has a 160-yard lead on Nick Chubb and a little more than that on Derrick Henry heading into the final week. There is some motivation for him to play in this upcoming game.

The following teammates of his were LP due to injuries/illness (ie. not rest) on the report for Las Vegas: Darien Butler (LP) and AJ Cole (LP). Davonte Adams also appeared on the report, however, he was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice. In total, Las Vegas had seven players listed on their half of the injury report with an update coming again on Thursday.

Kansas City lists six players on their half of the report

Meanwhile, Kansas City had six players listed on their half of the report. Their kicker Harrison Butker was the only player who was DNP. They will also update their report on Thursday. This is a Saturday game so the Thursday report will be the last one of the week.
