Chiefs Without Top 3 Wide Receivers at Wednesday's Practice

The Kansas City Chiefs have the league's top-ranked scoring offense, but their receiving corps could be in tatters when they visit the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday Night Football. Wide receivers Mecole Hardman, Juju Smith-Schuster, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling were all absent at Wednesday's practice. Hardman missed the Chiefs' Week 10 27-17 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars with his abdomen ailment. Smith-Schuster took a nasty hit in the game that forced him into concussion protocol. Valdes-Scantling played his typical allotment of snaps, nabbing three receptions for 60 yards and his first touchdown of the year.

Hardman, Smith-Schuster, and Valdes-Scantling are the Chiefs' three leading receivers after future Hall of Fame tight end Travis Kelce. The trio have combined for 1353 of the team's 2936 passing yards. The Chiefs lead the league in scoring and passing yards through 10 games.

Should the trio's unavailability extend to Sunday's matchup, the Chiefs will be forced to lean heavily on recently acquired wide receiver Kadarius Toney. Toney hauled in four of his five targets for 57 yards and one touchdown in his second game with the Chiefs.
