Dallas is a 1.23 favourite against the Jets at theScore Bet

The Chargers are a 1.65 favourite against the Titans at theScore Bet

Without injured tight end Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes looked out of sorts in the Week 1 home loss to Detroit.

This week, Kelce is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game in Jacksonville against the Jaguars (1 p.m. ET). The Chiefs' website reported that Kelce was a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice.

Kelce’s situation and the season-ending injury to New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers (Achilles) against Buffalo on Monday night book-ended the big news on the NFL injury front last weekend.

Heading into Week 2, add Baltimore Ravens running back J.K. Dobbins to that, out for the season with a knee injury.

Injury Updates

For those interested in NFL betting, this information factors in players who are tops on their team’s depth chart:

Raheem Mostert, RB, Miami Dolphins: Listed as questionable for the Sunday nighter in New England against the Patriots, Mostert is nursing a knee injury and didn’t practice Wednesday. Mostert rushed for 891 yards last season, a 4.9-yard average. The Dolphins like to pass though – QB Tua Tagovailoa lit up the L.A. Chargers  for 466 yards in Miami’s 36-34 win.

Mekhi Becton, RT, New York Jets: The Jets offensive line faced criticism with the Rodgers injury, not picking up a key block, and the news doesn’t get any better with 6-foot-7, 363-pound Becton listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the favoured Cowboys in Dallas (1.23 at theScore Bet).

Austin Ekeler, RB, Los Angeles Chargers: Not only did they lose the game to the Dolphins, but the Chargers’ offence took a hit with the loss of Ekeler to an ankle injury. ESPN reported that Ekeler did not practice Wednesday. The Chargers are in Tennessee to play the Titans Sunday at 1 p.m. EST and are 1.65 favourites at theScore Bet.

Other notables on the injury front, all listed as questionable: WR Diontae Johnson, Pittsburgh Steelers; TE Dalton Schultz, Houston Texas; RT Braden Smith, Indianapolis Colts; C Luke Fortner, Jaguars; LT Taylor Decker, Detroit Lions; WLB Dre Greenlaw, San Francisco 49ers; SS Jamal Adams, Seattle Seahawks; LT Joe Noteboom, L.A.
