Practicing Wednesday

Butker (ankle) is set to practice Wednesday, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Butker was unable to practice last week before missing his second straight game, but his return to work Wednesday offers encouragement that he'll be able to kick this weekend against the Buccaneers in the absence of any setbacks. If Butker isn't ready to play Week 4, Matthew Wright is a candidate to be elevated from Kansas City's practice squad to handle kicking duties.
