Friday update: Harrison Butker won’t practice again on Friday, per Pete Sweeney. He looks unlikely to play at this point, but we’ll see what Saturday brings.

The Kansas City Chiefs won’t have kicker Harrison Butker at practice on Thursday, per Matt McMullen. Butker still has time to practice, as they play on Monday Night Football against the Las Vegas Raiders. The good news for the Chiefs is that Matthew Wright did well in his spot start last Sunday, hitting both of his field goals and all five extra points. His strong game could allow Butker to rest longer if needed,.

Fantasy football implications

If Butker does return to practice on Friday and ends up being ready to go for Monday Night Football, he’s a fantasy start. If Butker has to sit again, Wright also has value as a fantasy start in what could be a high scoring game against the Raiders.
