Who didn't practice**
Receiver Dorial Green-Beckham (ankle), cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson (ankle), linebacker Yannik Cudjoe-Virgil (hamstring), linebacker J.R. Tavai (knee), linebacker Zaviar Gooden (hamstring), receiver Andrew Turzilli (ankle), defensive lineman DaQuan Jones (leg), defensive lineman Toby Johnson (shoulder) and safety Josh Aubrey did not practice.
Running back Dexter McCluster, quarterback Zach Mettenberger, guard Chance Warmack and kicker Ryan Succop all returned to practice after missing on Tuesday.
Rookie Dorial Green-Beckham wants to play on Friday night at Kansas City, but he's dealing with an ankle injury he suffered at the end of Tuesday's practice.
Green-Beckham, who played two seasons at Missouri, has family scheduled to be at the game.
He plans to test the ankle on the field before the game. But he wants to be smart. Coach Ken Whisenhunt said the team plans to monitor Green-Beckham's health during the week.
"Being better safe than sorry,'' he said. "I just want to make sure I am taking care of it, really. I am looking forward to getting back on the field."
Warmack drew a heck of a crowd around his locker on Wednesday, showing off his left big toe.
Warmack had a procedure to remove an ingrown toenail from his left big toe, as well as another procedure on his right big toe. He said it looked like doctors took "crab meat" out of the toe area.
Yes, sounds gross.
Warmack said the process was painful, especially when he played through it during Sunday's game.
"I am getting better,'' he said. "I just have to soak it and take care of it. I am not thinking about it when I have a (defensive lineman) in front of me, but when I am not practicing it hurts…I am not getting a lot of sympathy around here."
