Saquon Barkley (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 8 against Kansas City. This was expected with Barkley sitting out practice all week. Kenny Golladay (knee) will also miss his third straight game. Devontae Booker will continue to spot start and is a volume-based RB2. With the Giants bye looming in Week 10, Barkley isn't a lock to be back next week.

Patrick Mahomes said he feels "fine" after exiting in the fourth quarter of the Week 7 loss to the Titans. Mahomes was checked for a concussion but apparently passed the tests and was able to stay on the sideline for the final minutes of the Chiefs' loss. Already down 27-3 at the time of the big hit he took, the Chiefs were just protecting Mahomes from himself in a game that was already over. Look for Mahomes to be under center next week against the Giants.
