In his Kansas City tenure, with the Chiefs’ playoff position locked in before the final regular-season game, Andy Reid has typically rested some of his starters. The first NFL start for quarterback Patrick Mahomes occurred in the final week of the 2017 regular season in Denver.
The story pointed to several other times teams under Reid have rested starters, and it dates back to his days in Philly. The Chiefs will be the only AFC team not to play on Jan. 9 or 10 in the opening weekend of the playoffs, so it's a chance to give his players two weeks off from the wear and tear of the league. Reid didn't commit yet either way, however, so those with Chiefs playing in Week 17 of their fantasy playoffs should monitor this situation.
Schefter said Bears’ HC Matt Nagy declined to name a starter for Sunday’s game in Green Bay, saying a QB change is still "on the table," according to Schefter's tweet. If neither QB can go, it would be Bray's job against Green Bay in Week 12.
Foles will have more tests done, but the hope is he escaped serious injury. Trubisky is battling a shoulder injury and it's unclear if he'll be ready for Week 12 at this point, after the Bears have a bye in Week 11. If he can't go, Bray could get the start but would present a huge fantasy downgrade for an already struggling offense.
In other tweets from Maske, he said Nagy believes it's possible that Trubisky will be ready to return from his shoulder injury after the Bears' bye week, but he doesn't know that for certain. It's possible we won't know Trubisky's status until well into next week. Bray looked shaky in his limited time and would be a downgrade for a Bears offense that's struggling to begin with.
