KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid said five players, including three in the starting lineup, are either questionable or out for Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns.

Wide receiver Sammy Watkins (calf) will be out for the game, along with linebacker Willie Gay (ankle).

Running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (hip/ankle) and tight end Deon Yelder (groin) are questionable for the AFC Divisional Round matchup.

Cornerback Rashad Fenton (foot/ankle) is also questionable to compete in Sunday's game.

Running back Le’Veon Bell was a full participant in practice in the latter half of the week after dealing with a knee injury.

Should Edwards-Helaire be ruled out, Bell could see an increased work load.

With Watkins out, it’s possible wide receivers Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson will see increased playing time.
