Kansas City Chiefs

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said there is a "good chance" CB Kendall Fuller (wrist surgery) will play Week 16 against the Seahawks. This is a bit of a shock after Fuller was presumed to be out for the rest of the season following wrist surgery. "He’s doing well," Reid said. "This is a short-term thing. There’s a good chance he has an opportunity to play in the game coming up here." Arguably Kansas City's best corner, Fuller being able to play would be a massive boost for the defense.

Seattle Seahawks

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said it "remains uncertain" if Rashaad Penny (knee) can return this week. The Seahawks are hoping Penny can get some practice reps in Friday, but he looks headed for another missed game. Bo Scarbrough wa signed off Jacksonville's practice squad as insurance for Penny.
