Gay was not at practice on Thursday. Kansas City’s assistant coaches deferred to Andy Reid when it came to questions about Gay’s status for the playoff game. Reid didn’t speak to the media Thursday.

I’ll leave that up to Andy [Reid]. I’m sure he’ll address it, but if this happened in the game and it was an injury, today we just operate that way. Ons sal sien wat gebeur,” Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo said.

Spagnuolo was asked whether Gay’s mental health issues had been an issue since Gay tweeted about it.

I wasn’t aware of what you’re talking about there, but all I can say about Willie is I love working with him. He’s been terrific. Man, I think you guys know he had a baby, and I talk to him about that a lot. Hopefully things will work out for the best for everybody,” hy het gesê.

Gay is in his second season with the Chiefs.
