Kansas City Chiefs The team said before the morning press conference that defensive end Frank Clark will not be able to practise Thursday afternoon because he is sick.
Clark went through a full practice on Wednesday as the team got ready to play the Arizona Cardinals on the road in Week 1. Last week, Clark was sick and missed both Monday and Tuesday practises, which were the only ones open to the press.
Reports at the time said that Clark went to a doctor in 2019 because he was sick and had lost between 18 and 20 pounds because of it.
Clark told reporters in late July, during this year’s training camp in St. Joseph, that he had stopped eating red meat and drinking alcohol, which was making him feel healthier.

He said, “Alcohol is a big part of a lot of things that have to do with weight.” “It’s all sweetness. So, in the end, I quit drinking alcohol right after the season, to be honest.
It was like February. I got sick. I’ve been having problems with my stomach and intestines. Since I stopped drinking liquor, I haven’t had any. Then it began to make a little more sense. As I’m going on, I’m training. I feel like my body is listening to what I say. I can get up, and I can work out at any time of the day or night. So that was a promise I made.”
It’s important to know that the Chiefs are not required to say what’s wrong with a player who is sick. So, right now, we don’t know if Clark is sick because of his stomach or because of what he said in July. The Chiefs will release another injury report on Thursday afternoon, and then another one on Friday, which will include official injury designations before the game. The Kansas City Star also said that Clark’s problems off the field were solved on Thursday.
In 40 regular-season games for the Chiefs from 2019-21, Clark has compiled 88 tackles (63 solos) and 18.5 sacks. The defensive end has been picked for three straight Pro Bowls. He was a key part of Kansas City’s run to win Super Bowl LIV.
