Ford (knee) left each of the final two days of minicamp because of tendinitis in his knee, The Kansas City Star reports. Ford was reported to have left minicamp with a "sore knee", spelling concern over potential structural damage. However, Ford has reportedly avoided any such catastrophe, leaving head coach Andy Reid to say that his 2014 first round pick will be fine for training camp.
Ford left Wednesday's practice early with a sore knee, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports. Ford, Kansas City's 2014 first-round draft pick, has been working with the first-team defense throughout the offseason as Justin Houston (knee) and Tamba Hali (knee) remain on the sideline. Fortunately for Ford, however, his knee injury doesn't appear to be nearly as costly as the ones suffered by his aforementioned pass-rushing counterparts; Ford was observed walking off the practice field under his own power, and the team has expressed minimal concern over the matter thus far. For now, Ford should be considered questionable for the Chiefs' final day of minicamp, but, until further notice, he should be just fine for training camp come August. In Ford's absence, Dezman Moses slid into the first-team lineup.
Ford (concussion/wrist) is listed as active Saturday in Houston, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports. Ford suffered a concussion in the season finale yet progressed through the protocol quickly, completing full practice sessions both Thursday and Friday. The second-year pro is merely a situational LB, though, after totaling four sacks among 23 tackles this season.
Ford (concussion/wrist) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Texans. Given that Ford practiced fully, we'd expect him to be a go Saturday, though after having recorded just 23 tackles and 4.0 sacks in 14 games this season, he's only an option in deeper IDP formats.
Ford (concussion) was a full participant in practice in Thursday, B.J. Kissel of Chiefs.com reports. Ford suffered a concussion in last Sunday's win over the Raiders but has cleared the league protocol with his participation in practice on Thursday. An official decision about his status for Saturday's wild card game against the Texans is likely to be made on Friday.
