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.
KC WR Mecole Hardman - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 10 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Mecole Hardman continued his hot streak with another great game last week, finishing 6-79-1 on nine targets. That stat line is impressive because it sets Hardman's season highs in targets, receptions and receiving yards. Although that's bound to happen when the Chiefs throw the ball 68 times in a game. Still, Hardman has scored a touchdown in three consecutive games, and has really started to become more involved lately. He could continue his touchdown streak this week against the Jaguars as Jacksonville has given up the third-most total receiving touchdowns to WRs this season. With a favorable matchup against Jacksonville (28th aFPA), Hardman can be viewed as a solid WR3 play for Week 10. His health will be worth monitoring, though, as he's missed some practices (abdomen) this week.
