McKinnon (groin) isn't slated to practice Wednesday, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports.
McKinnon didn't play Sunday this past Sunday against the Raiders, and his looming absence from Wednesday's practice clouds his status for this weekend's game against the Packers. If McKinnon remains sidelined versus Green Bay, Isiah Pacheco and Clyde Edwards-Helaire would continue to pace the Chiefs' backfield in Week 13, with La'Mical Perine a potential practice squad elevation.

McKinnon (groin) won't play Sunday against the Raiders, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports.
With McKinnon set to be sidelined, Isiah Pacheco and Clyde Edwards-Helaire are available to handle the Chiefs' RB duties Sunday, with La'Mical Perine and Deneric Prince potential practice squad elevations. McKinnon will target a potential return to action Dec. 3 against the Packers.
McKinnon (groin) remained listed as limited at practice Thursday.
McKinnon was also limited Wednesday, so the running back will need to practice fully Friday in order to approach Sunday's game against the Raiders without an injury designation. Given that he's logged just 13 carries and 19 catches through 10 games this season, McKinnon -- who has recorded three receiving TDs in that span -- is only worth lineup consideration in deeper PPR formats.
McKinnon (groin) was limited at practice Wednesday.
McKinnon now has two more chances to practice fully ahead of Sunday's game against the Raiders. During Monday's 21-17 loss to the Eagles, McKinnon was on the field for 24 of a possible 79 snaps on offense, while carrying once for seven yards and catching two of his three targets for eight yards. With just 13 carries and 19 catches in 10 games this season, McKinnon's fantasy impact has been limited to deep PPR formats.
McKinnon compiled one carry for seven yards and caught two of three targets for eight yards during Monday's 21-17 defeat against Philadelphia.
While McKinnon did enjoy a slight uptick in offensive snaps -- 24 compared to just 13 last week -- that's still within the realm of the norm for the veteran back. McKinnon hasn't tallied more than three carries or catches in a game this season, so he can be safely left on the waiver wire in most formats.
McKinnon gained two rushing yards on his only carry and caught both his targets for 22 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 21-14 win over the Dolphins.
Despite the low touch volume, McKinnon was able to get into the end zone for the first time since Week 3, catching his third TD pass of the season on a 17-yard catch-and-run in the second quarter. Last year's nine receiving touchdowns always seemed like an outlier that wouldn't be repeated, but the 31-year-old's role has shrunk in general and McKinnon is on pace for only 321 scrimmage yards, a huge drop from the 803 yards he compiled in 2022.
McKinnon (groin) has no injury designation and is slated to play in Sunday's Week 9 game against the Dolphins.
After missing practice Wednesday, McKinnon was able to get in limited work the remainder of the week and is good to go for a big game in Germany. On the year, McKinnon has rushed just 11 times for 21 scoreless yards and has seen three targets or fewer in seven of eight contests.
McKinnon (groin) returned to a limited practice Thursday, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports.
McKinnon didn't practice Wednesday, but his return to a limited session Thursday has him trending toward being available for Sunday's game against the Dolphins in Frankfurt. Fellow RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) has already been ruled out for Week 9 action, so the Chiefs could elect to elevate La'Mical Perine and/or Deneric Prince from their practice squad to provide the team with added backfield depth versus Miami.
McKinnon (groin) returned to practice Thursday, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.
McKinnon was absent Wednesday, but his return to the field in some capacity Thursday puts him on the right track to potentially suit up Sunday against the Dolphins in Germany. On the season, McKinnon has rushed just 11 times for 21 scoreless yards (1.9 YPC) and caught 15 passes for 125 yards and two scores on 21 targets.
