Position Listing
Phillip Gaines
News
Gaines (knee) logged two tackles during Sunday's 37-27 victory over the Chargers.

Gaines was uncertain to play with a knee ailment but team doctors ultimately gave him the green light. However, his two tackles were good for just seventh on the team.

Rakeem Nunez-Roches
News
Nunez-Roches (back) practiced in full Wednesday.

Nunez-Roches injured his back during last Thursday's game against the Raiders, but his full showing Wednesday suggests he won't miss any additional time.

Eric Murray
News
The Chiefs selected Murray in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 106th overall.

Murray isn't a well-known name, but this looks like a fine selection for the Chiefs. Murray was the top corner on a Minnesota defense that's quietly been good against the pass the last two years, and he performed well at the Combine, too. Murray (5-foot-11, 199 pounds) logged a 4.49-second 40, 39.5-inch vertical and 124-inch broad jump. With 31.75-inch arms, Murray should have the reach to press effectively.

Cairo Santos
News
Santos made each of his three field-goal attempts and four extra-point attempts in Sunday's game against San Diego.

Santos has posted a solid fantasy season among kicker in 2016, converting 31 of his 35 attempts overall. It makes for a second consecutive season in which Santos has made at least 30 field goals and the Brazil native ranked in the top 10 among kickers. He should be a candidate to do so again in 2017.

Terrance Mitchell
News
Mitchell was promoted to the active roster from the Chiefs' practice squad on Thursday.

Mitchell was waived by the Chiefs on Nov. 7, but has plenty to be thankful for after being promoted back up to the active roster Thursday. With starting left cornerback Marcus Peters questionable for Week 12, Mitchell will presumably help provide depth in the Chiefs' secondary.

Albert Wilson
News
Wilson caught just one pass for 42 yards in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Chargers.

Wilson snagged just two passes on four targets over the last four weeks of the season and caught just 31 passes for 279 yards and two touchdowns on the season. With his contract set to expire in the offseason, the third-year wideout is no lock to receive a contract extension in Kansas City given his placement on the depth chart. Regardless of where he winds up playing next season, it's unlikely Wilson will gain fantasy relevance unless injuries surface ahead of him on the depth chart.

Dadi Nicolas
News
The Chiefs placed Nicolas (knee) on the IR Tuesday, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

The team subsequently promoted outside linebacker Victor Ochi from the practice squad in a corresponding move. Nicolas ruptured his patellar tendon Week 17. He primarily played a special teams role for the Chiefs during the season.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
D.J. Alexander
News
Alexander will enter the starting lineup at one of the Chiefs' two inside linebacker spots in Sunday's game against the Titans, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports.

With the Chiefs moving Derrick Johnson (Achilles) to injured reserve Sunday, Alexander will have an opportunity to see a full load of snaps and will face a tough test right off the bat in attempting to slow the Titans' powerful ground game. Johnson had been averaging 6.9 tackles per game on the season, so Alexander could be able to take on a similar volume now that he's settling into a starting role.

Tyreek Hill
News
Hill caught four of six targets for 27 yards during the Chiefs' divisional-round loss to the Steelers on Sunday. He also rushed three times for 18 yards and returned four kickoffs for 72 yards.

Hill wasn't able to bust out for any big plays like fans had become accustomed to seeing during the second half of the season, on offense or on special teams. Still, he was solid on kickoffs and his failure to post bigger receiving numbers has a lot to do with the underwhelming Alex Smith under center. No matter, Hill proved himself to be a playmaker in 2016 and will enter the 2017 campaign as a tantalizing fantasy option due to his ability to score from anywhere on the field in multiple phases of the game.

Jarvis Jenkins
News
Jenkins signed with the Chiefs on Monday.

Jenkins was waived by the Jets prior to Week 10 after playing a minimal role with the team. The veteran will presumably provide depth on the defensive line going forward. The Chiefs opted to waive defensive tackle David King in a correlated roster move.

Kenny Cook
News
Cook had surgery Thursday to repair a torn quadriceps, Terez Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Cook was waived and placed on the injured reserve due to the injury, but the Chiefs will retain their rights to the young receiver. The 24-year-old suffered the torn quadriceps in Tuesday's practice, and the injury really hurts his chances of making an NFL roster this season.

Injury
Quadriceps - Injured Reserve
Marcus Peters
News
Peters (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Broncos, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Peters was sidelined last week but was able to participate in all of the team's practices this week and isn't expected to be limited in any fashion against Denver.

Mike Person
News
The Falcons announced Tuesday that they have agreed to a deal with offensive lineman Mike Person. A four-year veteran, Person saw his first extended action last season with the Rams, playing in all 16 games.
Ron Parker
News
Parker finished the 2015 campaign with 78 tackles (67 solo), five sacks, three interceptions and a forced fumble.

Parker split 2014 between cornerback and safety, but the emergence of first-round draft pick Marcus Peters across from Sean Smith allowed him to play alongside Eric Berry this season. He took advantage of the opportunity, posting another solid season for the Chiefs in a secondary that could be scary for years to come, with Parker finishing up his first campaign of a five-year extension he signed in March of last year.

Ross Travis
News
Travis (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 15 tilt with the Titans, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports.

Travis has only been active for six games this season, recording three catches for 15 yards. As the fourth-string tight end for the Chiefs, Travis has a long way to go before attaining fantasy value.

De'Anthony Thomas
News
Thomas didn't touch the ball in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Chargers.

Thomas has done the majority of his damage on special teams this season, but even that role has been scaled back from previous seasons. The specialist may be a candidate to miss the 53-man roster next year with Tyreek Hill around. Should he earn a spot, 2017 would be his last under before his rookie deal with the Chiefs expires.

Jordan Devey
News
Devey was released by the Chiefs on Saturday.

Devey had served as a depth option on the Chiefs' offensive line, while his release opened a roster spot for the team to sign backup nose tackle David King.

Nick Foles
News
Foles took three snaps under center in Week 17, but failed to record a stat in the contest.

Foles hasn't put his name on the ledger since Week 9 against the Jaguars, but did post a 105.9 quarterback rating in two starts this season. He's owed a large base salary in 2018, meaning he will likely either need to negotiate a new contract with the Chiefs or he will probably be looking for a new backup job elsewhere next season.

Joseph Cheek
No Updates
Tyler Bray
News
Bray started the Chiefs' preseason finale Thursday against the Packers, completing 10 of 17 passes for 104 yards.

Bray didn't throw a touchdown pass or commit a turnover, posting a rather vanilla effort in his run. Still, he appears to have an inside track as the No. 3 quarterback following the news that Aaron Murray is on the trading block. Even if he makes the roster, it would take injuries to both Alex Smith and Nick Foles for Bray to see meaningful snaps.

Zach Fulton
News
The Chiefs have ruled quarterback Alex Smith (spleen) and cornerback Phillip Gaines (illness) out for Sunday's Week 17 divisional showdown against the Chargers.

Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe (shoulder), running back Jamaal Charles (hamstring, ankle) and guard Zach Fulton (foot, toe) were labeled questionable. Meanwhile, tight end Anthony Fasano (knee), linebacker Tamba Hali (knee), linebacker/defensive end Josh Martin (hand) and inside linebacker Joe Mays (knee) were deemed probable.

Cory Johnson
No Updates
Jamaal Charles
News
Charles wrote on his personal website that he wants to continue playing football despite the knee problems he's recently endured.

Charles put together a thoughtful piece that updated his situation in detail. The running back revealed that his latest knee injury, which saw him placed on injured reserve Nov. 1, occurred after making a cut during a post-practice workout. That resulted in Charles having cleanup surgeries on both his meniscuses, and ultimately preventing him from returning for the playoffs. Given his unfortunate history of knee problems, the 30-year-old admitted he doesn't know why his future holds, particularly with next season being the last on his current contract with the Chiefs, but he knows he wants to resume his career, which should make it worthwhile to track his situation this offseason.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Trey Millard
News
Millard (knee) was sent to the Chiefs' injured reserve list Wednesday.

Millard suffered a torn ACL during the Chiefs' preseason bout with the Rams. He reportedly already underwent surgery with Dr. James Andrews on Monday and will hopefully experience a full recovery in time for the 2017 campaign.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Charcandrick West
News
West had 16 carries for 58 yards and caught five all five of his targets for 58 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 37-27 win at San Diego.

West saw more work than usual with Spencer Ware (ribs) inactive, and took advantage with a receiving touchdown in each half. West's performance was a step up from the last time he saw more of a featured role back in Week 9, when Ware sat out with a concussion. In that game against Jacksonville, West struggled, rushing for just 39 yards on 13 carries. In any case, the Chiefs earned a first-round bye Sunday, so Ware should be ready to roll in a couple of weeks, moving West back to more of a complimentary role.

D.J. White
News
White (hand) logged a full practice Wednesday.

White has missed the past three games with a fracture in his hand. However, his uninhibited practice Wednesday suggests he'll be ready to play Sunday against the Bucs.

Jaye Howard
News
Howard (hip) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.

Howard has missed the Chiefs past three games due to hip issue and the team ultimately opted to end his season early. In eight games this year, Howard racked up 23 tackles and one sack. Kendall Reyes (knee) is likely to serve as Howard's replacement the remainder of the season.

Injury
Hip - Injured Reserve
Dee Ford
News
Ford (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's tilt against the Falcons.

Ford will provide Justin Houston and Tamba Hali with some depth at outside linebacker after practicing on a limited basis throughout the week.

T.J. Barnes
News
Barnes was promoted to the Chiefs' active roster on Saturday.

Barnes hasn't done much throughout his NFL career, which has included brief stints with the Jets and Bills. If Dontari Poe (back) is unable to play Sunday against the Falcons, Barnes could see snaps at nose tackle behind Jarvis Jenkins.

Frank Zombo
News
Several Chiefs who were on the injury report are active for the game at San Francisco. They include linebackers Tamba Hali (knee) and Frank Zombo (hamstring), cornerbacks Sean Smith (groin) and Marcus Cooper (knee), and running back De'Anthony Thomas (hamstring).
Kendall Reyes
News
Reyes (wrist) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports.

Reyes has held down a starting role at defensive end for the Chiefs, but he's not much of a pass-rusher in the team's 3-4 scheme, as those duties fall to the likes of Justin Houston, Tamba Hali and Dee Ford. As such, Reyes' absence won't mean much in leagues with IDPs, though the Chiefs will have to rotate in more linemen to help stop the Titans' potent ground game.

Mitch Morse
News
Chiefs rookie guard Mitch Morse is getting his feet wet during the team's minicamp this week, per ESPN.com.

Morse, a second-round pick by the Chiefs this year, has been getting reps with the first-team offensive line during minicamp.

Chris Jones
News
Jones left a good impression during his first day in pads at camp, performing well in one-on-one drills and batting down a pass during team drills, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports. However, Teicher notes that he may not crack the starting lineup right away.

The Chiefs have three solid defensive line options ahead of him in Jaye Howard, Dontari Poe and Allen Bailey that present a roadblock for him on the defensive line. While a strong camp could certainly lead to a chance at a starting spot, the team likely drafted him to replace Dontari Poe (who's in his contract year). Either way, the rookie second-round pick should see plenty of playing time as a substitute on the line should he not secure a starting gig.

Chris Conley
News
Conley finished Sunday's regular-season finale against the Chargers with four catches for 55 yards on five targets.

Conley was considered a breakout candidate in 2016, but it was rookie wideout Tyreek Hill who actually did so. The second-year wideout did improve his receiving numbers in his second campaign but did not reach the end zone. Conley may continue seeing the second-most snaps among receivers in 2017, but Hill, Jeremy Maclin and Travis Kelce will likely be more involved in the offense than the Georgia product.

Dontari Poe
News
Poe (back) is active for Thursday's contest against the Raiders, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.

Poe practiced in full on Tuesday and Wednesday and his active status comes as no surprise. He should be expected to play without limitation.

Demetrius Harris
News
Harris was targeted once in Week 17 against the Chargers.

Harris finishes his regular season with just 17 catches for 123 yards and a touchdown. He remains behind Travis Kelce on the depth chart at the position and It's unlikely he will find a big role with the Chiefs next season unless Kelce suffers an injury.

Justin March-Lillard
News
March-Lillard (hand) was activated to the Chiefs' active roster Friday, The Daily News reports.

Despite joining the active roster for the first time since breaking his left hand in October, head coach Andy Reid admitted March-Lillard is unlikely to play in this weekend's season finale against the Chargers.

Daniel Sorensen
News
Sorensen posted a dominant IDP performance Sunday, recording a sack and six tackles (all solo) while intercepting a pass and returning it for a touchdown.

Sorensen was on the field for just 58 percent of the team's snaps in Sunday's contest, but took advantage of the increased opportunity. His play may have earned him more snaps moving forward, but it's unlikely he'll be able to repeat this performance.

Knile Davis
News
Davis finished the 2016 regular season out with six carries for nine yards in Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Davis finished the campaign with just 18 total carries for 28 rushing yards between the Chiefs and Packers, but will likely be looking for a job elsewhere in the offseason due to his contract expiring. However, it's unlikely the fourth-season back will attain fantasy-relevance any time in the near future.

Demarcus Robinson
No Updates
Mitchell Schwartz
News
Schwartz (ankle) is active for Sunday's tilt with the Colts.

After being held out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday, the tackle will take the field on Sunday. Jah Reid will be waiting in the wings, should Schwartz be hampered by his ankle injury.

Eric Berry
News
Berry (Achilles) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Berry injured his Achilles in Week 17's win over the Chargers, but after getting the past week off to rest, the safety returned to the practice field as a full participant. He will be a full-go for Sunday's tilt with the Steelers, bolstering the Chiefs' secondary.

Darrin Reaves
News
Reaves will likely get the start at running back for the Chiefs during Thursday's preseason finale against the Packers, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

Reaves is expected to play a big role Thursday with Jamaal Charles (knee), Charcandrick West (elbow), and Spencer Ware likely sidelined. Knile Davis would be the only other option in the backfield during the exhibition contest, while Reaves battles for a roster spot in a crowded backfield dealing with a couple of injuries.

Jeremy Maclin
News
Maclin collected four passes on five targets for 53 yards in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Chargers.

Maclin's sophomore campaign with the Chiefs hasn't come close to matching his first, having nabbed just 44 passes in total on 76 targets versus 87 catches for 1,088 yards a year ago. He also found pay dirt just twice on the season, well off his 2015 pace when he reached the end zone eight times. He should lead the receiving corps in snaps in the postseason and could be a buy-low candidate in drafts next season.

Frankie Hammond
News
Hammond was cut by the Chiefs on Saturday but was signed to the team's practice squad Sunday, the Kansas City Star reports.

Hammond was considered a longshot to earn a roster spot, so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that he didn't make it. However, he could still earn a promotion to suit up on Sundays should other wide receivers suffer an injury.

James O'Shaughnessy
News
O'Shaughnessy has made the Chiefs' 53-man roster.

O'Shaughnessy was thought to have been passed by Brian Parker in camp and could have potentially landed on the practice squad but he's instead eeked his way onto the roster. Still, it's unlikely the second-year tight end will see meaningful playing time on Sundays.

Bryan Witzmann
No Updates
Parker Ehinger
Injury
Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Ramik Wilson
News
Wilson was signed by the Chiefs on Tuesday.

Wilson was released by the Chiefs just before the beginning of the season, but with Justin March (undisclosed) landing on the IR, the team decided to bring back the 24-year-old. Expect Wilson to serve as a backup behind Sam Barrington while also playing a role on special teams.

Laurent Duvernay-Tardif
News
The Chiefs listed quarterback Alex Smith as inactive for Week 17’s game against the Chargers.

Smith is suffering from a lacerated spleen which is expected to keep him out for six weeks.

Other inactives included Donnie Avery, Phillip Gaines, Marcus Cooper, Eric Kush, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and Nick Williams.

Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe (shoulder) and running back Jamaal Charles (hamstring, ankle) were listed as questionable, but are active.

Steven Nelson
News
Nelson (neck) was a full full participant at Wednesday's practice.

Nelson was forced to sit Week 12, but looks like he will be good to go against the Falcons on Sunday. He will likely back up Phillip Gaines at cornerback.

Seantavius Jones
News
Jones inked a contract to join the Chiefs' practice squad Sunday, the Kansas City Star reports.

Jones reportedly displayed some promise during camp, enough so that the Chiefs have decided to keep him in Kansas City despite the wideout not securing a 53-man roster spot. He could earn a promotion if injuries occur but it's unlikely the second-year wideout will have a significant role on Sundays.

Travis Kelce
News
Kelce caught five of seven targets for 77 yards during the Chiefs' divisional-round playoff loss to the Steelers on Sunday.

As has been the case most of the season, Kelce was the Chiefs' most dangerous weapon in the passing game and paced the team in nearly every statistical receiving category. However, a pair of second half mistakes cost him -- and his team. Late in the third quarter, Kelce dropped a deep bomb in Steelers territory and then let his temper flare on the play after, ultimately drawing a 15-yard personal foul for roughing up a Steelers cornerback. Sunday's playoff loss aside, Kelce will finish the 2016 campaign as one of the best fantasy options at tight end and made a great case to be one of the first at his position to be selected in 2017 drafts.

Josh Mauga
News
Mauga (shoulder) will be sidelined for the remainder of the season, BJ Kissel of chiefs.com reports.

Mauga will miss the entire 2016 season due to a labral tear. The Chiefs' veteran linebacker was expected to be a catalyst of this year's defense. Ramik Wilson will have a chance to earn a starting spot during his absence.

Injury
Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Zach Sterup
No Updates
Allen Bailey
News
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.

Injury
Pectoral - Injured Reserve
Victor Ochi
News
Ochi has been signed from the Jets' practice squad, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Ochi's signing comes in the wake of linebacker Erin Henderson being placed on the Non-Football Injury list, which will likely hold him out the rest of the year. Ochi will provide depth for a decimated Jets linebacker corps.

Spencer Ware
News
Ware rushed eight times for 35 yards and a touchdown during the Chiefs' 18-16 divisional-round playoff loss to the Steelers. He also caught two of his four targets for one yard.

Ware was efficient on the ground Sunday, topping 4.0 YPC for just the second time in the past six games and scoring one of the game's two lone touchdowns. However, he wasn't able to make anything happen through the air despite tying for the third-most targets on the team. One particularly costly blemish occurred in the first half when Ware dropped a pass on third and seven that forced a Chiefs punt in their own territory. Now entering his first offseason atop the depth chart, fantasy players should keep a close eye on how involved Jamaal Charles (knee) looks to be in the game plan. While Ware looks to have earned the right to remain the lead back, Charles could turn it into a committee if he shows he still has something left in the tank.

Vernon Harris
Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Dustin Colquitt
News
Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles (knee) is active for the game at Arizona after being listed as probable.

Other probables suiting up are wideout Donnie Avery (groin), punter Dustin Colquitt (calf), tight end Anthony Fasano (knee), linebacker Dee Ford (quadriceps), linebacker Tamba Hali (knee), linebacker James-Michael Johnson (knee), linebacker Josh Mauga (back), guard Mike McGlynn (quadriceps), cornerback Chris Owens (knee) and cornerback Sean Smith (groin).

James Winchester
No Updates
Tamba Hali
News
Hali intends to play in the 2017 season and likely beyond, The Kansas City Star reports.

Hali, who will turn 34 next season, is under contract with the Chiefs for the next two years but reportedly hopes to play on for another four. However, the veteran logged a season-low seven snaps against the Steelers on Sunday -- five fewer than reserve edge rusher Frank Zombo. Considering the Chiefs were coming off a bye and Hali himself confirmed he was feeling fresh and ready to go for the playoffs, it doesn't appear health was a factor in this near benching. At the same time, Hali still looks to have something left in the tank, so it was truly surprising the Chiefs didn't use him more. Cutting him would actually lose the team cap space, so that's not a remote possibility in the offseason, but it looks like Hali could be asked to accept a decreased workload if he wants to continue his career.

Earl Okine
News
Okine had a sack in Saturday's preseason win over Buffalo.

Okine is being moved to linebacker from defensive end as the Colts seek help in their pass rush. The undrafted free agent from Florida could win a regular role after a strong showing in training camp.

Jah Reid
News
Chiefs offensive lineman Jah Reid will be replaced as the starting right tackle by Eric Fisher, NFL.com reports.

Fisher battled through an ankle injury that limited him to three snaps through the first two weeks. Reid started at right tackle the first two weeks, but had some problems in pass blocking.

Joel Stave
News
Stave was signed to Minnesota's practice squad, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Even if there is more chaos at quarterback with Sam Bradford and Shuan Hill taking over for injured Teddy Bridgewater, it's hard to see Stave as an option to be activated to the 53-man roster. He'll likely spend the full season developing on the practice squad.

Kenneth Acker
News
Acker was traded from the 49ers to the Chiefs on Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Not assured of a roster spot, Acker was presumably traded for a conditional late-round pick. The 2014 sixth-round selection did make 13 starts for the injury-plagued 49ers last season, but he profiles as a No. 4 or 5 cornerback for most organizations.

Terrance Smith
News
Smith was promoted to the Chiefs' active roster Wednesday, The Kansas City Star reports.

Smith, an undrafted rookie out of Florida State, will help replace Sam Barrington and Sio Moore (both of whom were released Tuesday). He projects as the Chiefs' No. 4 inside linebacker.

David King
News
King was waived by the Chiefs on Friday.

The Chiefs activated linebacker Justin March from injured reserve Friday and evidently needed King's roster spot in order to do so. If King clears waivers, he'll more than likely end up on the Chiefs' practice squad.

Alex Smith
News
Smith completed 20 of 34 passes for 172 yards with one touchdown and one interception during the Chiefs' divisional-round playoff loss to the Steelers on Sunday. He added nine rushing yards on two carries.

Another day, the same old Alex Smith. The Chiefs quarterback was his usual unspectacular self Sunday and unfortunately had a few strokes of bad luck as well that ultimately assured Kansas City's demise. His interception came off a tipped pass that fell in the hands of Steelers LB Ryan Shazier and a holding penalty by tackle Eric Fisher negated a successful two-point conversion attempt that would have tied the game at 18-18 with just minutes to go in the game. Key drops by Spencer Ware, Travis Kelce and Albert Wilson only made things worse. Despite returning a stellar receiving corps that includes the likes of Kelce, Jeremy Maclin and Tyreek Hill in 2017, Smith simply doesn't appear to possess the upside to join the upper echelon of fantasy quarterbacks.

Anthony Sherman
News
Chiefs fullback Anthony Sherman saw just ten offensive snaps in Thursday's game against the Broncos.

Sherman saw a dramatic drop in snaps from 25 in Week 1 to 10 in Week 2. Given the lack of production out of the fullback spot, it shouldn't have too much impact on his fantasy value, but it could be an indicator that the Chiefs plan to move in a different direction offensively.

Justin Houston
News
Houston capped off his 2016 season Sunday with six tackles (five solo) in a divisional-round loss to the Steelers.

Houston missed the team's final two regular-season games due to injury, but was deemed healthy enough to give it a go in the team's first playoff game. While he did record six tackles, the 28-year-old pass rusher was unable to get to Ben Roethlisberger in the contest and finishes his injury-shortened 2016 campaign with just four sacks over six games (including the playoffs). He remains under contract with the Chiefs for another four years, but has played just 16 games combined in the last two seasons. The Georgia product may be a somewhat risky proposition in terms of health, but his injury history could make him a high-value IDP option in 2017 if he can play the entire season.

Eric Fisher
News
Chiefs offensive lineman Jah Reid will be replaced as the starting right tackle by Eric Fisher, NFL.com reports.

Fisher battled through an ankle injury that limited him to three snaps through the first two weeks. Reid started at right tackle the first two weeks, but had some problems in pass blocking.

Derrick Johnson
News
Johnson (Achilles) finished the 2016 regular season with 90 tackles (70 solo) one interception and one sack.

Johnson ruptured his Achilles in Week 14 against the Raiders, ultimately shortening his season to just 13 games. The veteran inside linebacker was on pace to easily surpass 100 tackles for the sixth time in the last seven seasons, proving he still has plenty left in the tank in his 12th professional campaign. He should retake his place at the center of the Chiefs defense in the second of a three-year deal with the team in 2017.
