Rookie running back Darwin Thompson played a handful of snaps in the Chiefs' first two games but his first significant playing time could come on Sunday against the Ravens at Arrowhead Stadium. Starter Damien Williams will not play because of a knee injury, so there's some playing time available. LeSean McCoy appears he will be ready to play but the Chiefs are likely to be cautious about overloading him. McCoy was on the injury report this week with a sprained ankle. So Thompson and another backup, Darrel Williams, will likely play more than they have. Thompson said the biggest adjustment to the NFL has been in understanding his responsibilities in pass protection. “They're a lot better disguising them in the NFL. In colleges, there wasn't much of a disguise. You knew who was coming. So it's just an awareness of what's coming,'' Thompson said. Thompson is only 200 pounds but said he could handle the physical part of pass blocking. “It's a pride thing,'' he said. “You don't want to let another grown man knock you out . . . You've got to want to do it. It's going to keep you on the field or keep you off the field. You choose.''

The Chiefs ruled starting RB Damien Williams out of Sunday's game against the Ravens because of a bruised right knee. Williams did not practice during the week. LeSean McCoy practiced for the second straight day and will likely be available on Sunday, joining rookie Darwin Thompson and Darrel Williams as candidates for playing time.

DC floats Lamar-Mahomes as next Peyton-Brady

Ravens defensive coordinator Don "Wink" Martindale is looking forward to Sunday's showdown between Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes, saying it could be sports' next great rivalry, a la Tom Brady and Peyton Manning or Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier.

Patrick Mahomes said one of the favorite passes of his career happened in last year's game against the Ravens. The Chiefs had a 4th and 9 late in the fourth quarter down 24-17. They got one after Mahomes was forced by pressure to run to his right. While on the run he threw back across his body down the field to Tyreek Hill for a 48-yard gain to set up the tying touchdown. The Chiefs went on to win in overtime. The play captured everything that makes Mahomes what he is, including being composed under pressure and making a big play when his team needed it the most. Mahomes argued he wasn't as calm as he might have looked. "I don't know if you can call it composure,'' he said.."I looked the wrong way first. I just kind of made something happen after that.''

Either Damien Williams or LeSean McCoy has been the Chiefs' featured back on 119 of 129 plays this season, or 92 percent. Neither was participating in the early portion of practice on Wednesday because of injuries. Darrel Williams and rookie Darwin Thompson, who between them have 10 plays this season, would be in line to get the work on Sunday against the Ravens. Thompson, a sixth-round draft pick, was impressive in training camp and the preseason and looked like he would get a portion of the work in the regular season until the Chiefs signed McCoy. Coach Andy Reid said he wants to make sure Thompson knows his assignments as a pass blocker before he gets a lot of playing time. “As long as I feel like he knows what he's doing, I'm good with it,'' Reid said. “He'll stick it up in there and hit you. It's just a matter of seeing it. He's young so he hasn't seen everything there is to see. He's getting there. I feel comfortable with him in there.''

Tyreek Hill was in Chiefs locker room before practice and he didn't look like a guy who was going to be out much longer. He no longer had his right arm in a sling and he was dribbling a basketball, including with his injured arm. Hill was with the Chiefs for their game in Oakland, though he didn't play. Hill was not scheduled to practice today.

RB Damien Williams has a knee confusion and will not practice today. The plan for LeSean McCoy is to practice some.

LT Eric Fisher will have core muscle surgery in Philadelphia so he's out for awhile, including Sunday's game against the Ravens. Cam Erving will start in his place. Erving took over from Fisher early in last week's game against the Raiders.

Travis Kelce on the Chiefs' big second quarter: "It's the (biggest) fun rush I've had in my life, man. And that's what you want every single week is to come out and to feel unstoppable. And we did in that moment.''

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Travis Kelce sounded nostalgic about playing for the final time at the Oakland Coliseum: "The fan base here is going to let you know how they feel,'' Kelce said. "That's why I love coming here. The bus ride here is going to feel weird coming into a different location. I get amped up coming into a hostile environment like this. Seeing everyone when you come in flicking you off on the bus, you see a few people's cheeks that you didn't want to see. It's football at its finest, man. We're going to miss that coming here so shout out to everybody in Oakland for making it what it was.”

Demarcus Robinson said he wasn't surprised by the Chiefs' big offensive second quarter. "That's just what we do."

Mahomes' 4 TDs in 2nd quarter lead Chiefs past Raiders 28-10

Patrick Mahomes bounced back from the first scoreless opening quarter of his career in the regular season by throwing four touchdown passes in a near perfect second period that led the Kansas City Chiefs to a 28-10 victory over the Oakland Raiders on...

Patrick Mahomes in targeting Demarcus Robinson today: 5-of-5, 144 yards, 2 TDs. And they had a long one called back because of a penalty.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Pat Mahomes' last five attempts of the first half: 42 yards to Mecole Hardman, 32 yards to Damien Williams, 43 yards to Demarcus Robinson, 27 yards to Travis Kelce, 39 yards to Robinson. Three TDs. Those were his last five attempts, not last five completions.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Patrick Mahomes has 212 yards in this quarter and he has two minutes left.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

No Tyreek Hill today for the Chiefs and like last week it doesn't matter. Today's receiving star is Demarcus Robinson, who has four for 105 and a TD. That doesn't include a long pass wiped out by a penalty.
