KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) - The Kansas City Chiefs have ruled defensive end Mike Danna out for Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers due to a calf injury.

Kicker Harrison Butker and wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling were listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report.

Butker missed the last two games for the Chiefs with an ankle injury suffered in Kansas City’s season-opening win over the Arizona Cardinals. Valdes-Scantling was put on the injury report for the first time this season during this week of practice.

A recent free-agent addition from the Green Bay Packers, Valdes-Scantling did not participate in practice Thursday due to an abdomen. He was a limited participant during Friday’s practice.

The Valdes-Scantling injury comes as fellow wide receiver Mecole Hardman is dealing with a heel injury suffered in the Week 2 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. Hardman was rested by the Chiefs during Wednesday’s practice and was a limited participant both Thursday and Friday.
