Safety Tyrann Mathieu was the only player to miss practice for the Kansas City Chiefs on Wednesday.

Mathieu exited the AFC divisional playoff win over the Buffalo Bills in the first quarter on Sunday and remains in concussion protocol.

Head coach Andy Reid said Mathieu could be back Thursday if "everything goes well."

Mathieu left the game following evaluation for a head injury after teammate Jarran Reed's knee inadvertently caught the Pro Bowl safety. Without him, the Chiefs were unable to contain Josh Allen and wide receiver Gabriel Davis, who connected for four touchdowns in the 42-36 overtime shootout.

If Mathieu isn't cleared for the AFC Championship game against the visiting Cincinnati Bengals, he would be replaced by backup Daniel Sorensen. Sorensen, however, has one of the lowest ratings in the NFL at the position, according to Pro Football Focus.
