Analysis: Griffin-Stewart made his NFL debut Sunday, but only played three offensive snaps in the contest with Travis Kelce sidelined.

May be poised for NFL debut

The Chiefs elevated Griffin-Stewart from the practice squad Saturday.

Analysis: If he isn't among Kansas City's inactives Sunday versus the Steelers, Griffin-Stewart may garner his first snap as a pro of any type. Much of that decision may be tied to Travis Kelce's availability after the team activated him from the COVID-19 list Saturday but listed him as questionable due to non-injury reasons.
