Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid told the media on Saturday that running back Damien Williams missed Saturday's practice as he was 'excused for a personal situation.'
Reid added Williams 'should' travel with the team for the game, but the team announced he was questionable.
Defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah (pectoral), defensive end Alex Okafor (ankle) and tight end Blake Bell (ankle) are out for Monday's game against the Chargers. Cornerback Kendall Fuller (thumb) is questionable.
A positive for the Chiefs is that starting offensive linemen Eric Fisher (groin) and Laurent Duvernay-Tardif (right ankle) were full participants this past week and are expected to play.
