Chiefs' Reid says TE Travis Kelce has 'slightly sprained ankle'
"Travis has a slightly sprained ankle,” Reid said, per the team's official website. “It's not a high ankle sprain. There's a chance if we were playing a regular season game, he'd have a pretty good shot of playing.
“It looks like he got his foot caught in the grass. He just tweaked his ankle a little bit. I think he’s lucky the grass gave way a little bit. That’s what happened.”
The Chiefs open the season Sept. 13 against the Texans, which gives Kelce a little less than two weeks to get ready for the start of the 2015 campaign.
Kelce had a breakout season in 2014, totaling 67 catches for 862 yards and five touchdowns. He is expected to play a key role again in the Chiefs' passing game this season.

He’s got such toughness and edge-setting pressure. So we’re just trying to get him where he’s feeling at his best.”
