  • Deandre Baker: Shifts to injured list

    Baker (leg) was placed on the practice squad injured list Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Baker broke his left femur in the Week 17 loss to the Chargers. The second-year cornerback underwent successful surgery last week, and his move to the injured list was expected. Given the severity of his injury, it's unclear when the 2019 first-round pick will be healthy enough to play again.

    After sustaining a severe leg injury during Sunday's 38-21 loss to the Chargers, Baker broke his left femur and underwent surgery. Throughout the cornerback's two games this season with the Chiefs, he recorded five tackles (four solo) and broke up one pass, all of which the 2019 first-round pick managed to register during the Week 17 matchup.

  • Chiefs' Deandre Baker: Suffers broken femur

    Baker sustained a broken left femur during Sunday's 38-21 loss to the Chargers, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

    Baker suffered the injury while appearing in just his second game with the Chiefs, while handling an expanded defensive role due to the team's decision to sit multiple starters Week 17. The 2019 first-round pick is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but if he managed to impress in limited time with Kansas City, the team could opt to invest in his future as a developmental project.

  • Chiefs' Deandre Baker: Bumps up to active roster

    The Chiefs elevated Baker to the active roster for Sunday's game against the Saints.

    Baker linked with Kansas City's practice squad back in November, and it looks like he could now get a chance to make his debut with the defending Super Bowl champions. The 2019 first-round pick was cut by the Giants early September while facing four counts of robbery with a firearm, but all charges against him have since been dropped.

  • Deandre Baker: Charges dropped

    The Broward State Attorney dropped all charges against Baker on Monday, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

    The State Attorney has, in turn, charged William Dean, an attorney for three of Baker's four alleged victims, with extortion for allegedly demanding Baker pay each client $266,000 in exchange for withdrawing their testimony against Baker. This case is complicated, but for the time being, Baker is off the hook for his May arrest for armed robbery. The league may still discipline Baker.

  • Giants' Deandre Baker: On exempt list

    Baker (personal) was placed on the commissioner's exempt list Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    After an alleged incident in Miramar, Fla. in May, both Baker and Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar were arrested, with the former facing four counts of armed robbery and four more counts of aggravated assault with a firearm. A judge granted Baker conditional approval to leave Florida in order to report for training camp with the Giants in New Jersey, but now the 2019 first-round pick won't be allowed in team facilities for the foreseeable future. It remains to be seen how his situation plays out in advance of the team's Week 1 matchup with the Steelers.
