Packers-Chiefs: Player notes

Injury update, news on individuals from Packers and Chiefs

-- C Scott Wells didn't practice Wednesday because of what has been classified as pneumonia and is questionable to play Sunday at Kansas City. The team originally said Wells had a sinus infection, which kept him out against Denver on Monday night. The illness isn't related to a fractured eye socket Wells sustained in Week 5.

-- DT Ryan Pickett was limited Wednesday after suffering a bruised knee Monday. Pickett finished the game, so he should be good to make the start Sunday.

-- TE Bubba Franks will miss his second straight game because of a sprained knee. Head coach Mike McCarthy said Franks might be out at least two more weeks.

-- DT Justin Harrell also will be out again with a sprained ankle he sustained in practice last week.

-- FB Korey Hall came out of Monday's game with a neck injury and was limited Wednesday.

-- WR Ruvell Martin isn't out of the woods with a sore lower back and had limited work Wednesday. Martin played sparingly on offense Monday after missing most of the practice week.

-- OL Junius Coston continues to deal with a sprained ankle, which has kept him from making the start at right guard the last two games. He was limited Wednesday.

-- WR Eddie Kennison, who has taken only a handful of snaps while battling hamstring problems this year, played on the scout team Wednesday, his most extensive action in the past month. He remains questionable for Green Bay.

-- RB Larry Johnson has had 100-yard rushing games in three of his past four outings after being held to less than 55 in his first three. But his rushing average remains only 3.6 yards.

-- TE Tony Gonzalez had four catches for 121 yards with a touchdown in the Chiefs' overtime win at Green Bay in 2003.

-- WR Dwayne Bowe, after his apparent breakout 8-164 game in San Diego on Sept. 30, has been held to 11 catches for 200 yards without a TD in three games since.
