Chiefs-Panthers game still will be played

After discussions between the NFL and Kansas City officials, the Carolina Panthers reportedly will play the Chiefs as scheduled Sunday.

There had been some uncertainty about that in the immediate aftermath of Saturday morning’s tragic events in Kansas City. But the decision has been made to play the game at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.

The Panthers made the trip, as planned, to Kansas City on Saturday afternoon. Running back Jonathan Stewart, who has been dealing with an ankle injury, did not make the trip and will not play. DeAngelo Williams is expected to start in his place.
