A group of Chiefs, including Jamaal Charles, Tamba Hali and Donald Stephenson, spent the week recovering from an illness that lingered throughout the locker room.

And Tamba Hali, too. Also sick. Sounds like a nasty bug going through Chiefs locker room.— Lindsay Jones (@bylindsayhjones) December 26, 2012


However, as the report shows, Charles and Hali fully participated in Thursday's drills.

One thing is certain: Kansas City—a 16-point underdog (via OddsShark.com)—needs as much help as it can enlist.  

The Kansas City Chiefs will punctuate their season with a divisional matchup versus the Denver Broncos at 4:25 p.m. (ET) on Sunday.
