Fasano will practice today but not Avery, Jenkins

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Starting tight end Anthony Fasano will return to practice Monday as the Kansas City Chiefs begin preparations for Thursday night's game against the Raiders in Oakland. Fasano did not play in Sunday's 24-20 win against the Seattle Seahawks because of what the Chiefs have called a bruised knee.

Neither of two injured wide receivers who also did not play against the Seahawks, Donnie Avery and A.J. Jenkins, will practice Monday. Avery is recovering from surgery to repair a sports hernia. Jenkins has an injured shoulder.

If Fasano can play in Oakland, the Chiefs can get back to the three-tight end formations they favored earlier in the season. At tight end they also have Travis Kelce and Phillip Supernaw.

Supernaw signed only last week but still wound up playing against the Seahawks and catching one pass.

“He did OK," offensive coordinator Doug Pederson said. "He did well. Limited reps but he caught the one ball and did some good things for us. It’s something that as he gets a little more comfortable in the offense and we keep him coming along. ...He definitely gave us the ability to keep some of our same personnel groups intact."

Frankie Hammond Jr. would again get most of the snaps at the one wide receiver spot if Avery and Jenkins don't play in Oakland. Hammond didn't catch a pass against Seattle.
