Wide receiver Mecole Hardman has been back at Chiefs practice for the last couple of weeks, but he has not been activated from injured reserve yet.
Head coach Andy Reid suggested on Wednesday that Hardman is likely to take that step this week.
Hardman has been sidelined by an abdominal injury and Reid said a setback on that front is the only thing that would keep him from making it back into the lineup against the Broncos, the story said. Hardman was apparently close to playing last week. Hardman had scored a TD in three straight games, a span of Weeks 6-9, before missing time, and in Week 5 had 4-73-0 line. So Hardman was heavily involved in the offense before his abdomen injury, as we stated last week.
