Bailey's recent placement on IR was due to a torn pectoral muscle, Pete Sweeney of Chiefs.com reports. Bailey's injury was originally thought to be a shoulder problem, but new information released Wednesday indicates the severe pectoral issue. Chris Jones figures to see an expanded role on the defensive line with Bailey out.
Updating a previous note, Bailey (shoulder) was placed on the IR on Tuesday. As suspected, Bailey's season comes to an end after suffering a shoulder injury in Sunday's win over the Raiders. The team added defensive lineman Rakeem Nunez-Roches to the active roster as a result of the injury. Look for rookie Chris Jones to also see an increase in action.
Bailey (shoulder) is in danger of missing the remainder of the season due to a shoulder injury he suffered in Sunday's win over the Raiders, Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports. It isn't looking good for the defensive end, who was forced to exit Sunday's win after logging only 12 snaps. Look for more details to emerge as the week continues, with Dontari Poe, Jaye Howard, and rookie Chris Jones all expected to see increased reps in Bailey's absence. If he is ultimately ruled out for the season, the 27-year-old will end the year with seven tackles (five solo) in five games.
Bailey has a shoulder contusion, Terez Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports. The severity of the injury is still unknown. If he is forced to miss time, look for Nicholas Williams to see increased action at defensive end.
Bailey (calf) is probable for Sunday's game against the Chargers. Bailey was able to practice fully all week, so it appears as if the defensive end could make his first return to the field since Week 8. Bailey will likely take over for the injured Mike DeVito, who was ruled out Friday after missing practice all week due to multiple injuries.
