Kiser racked up 77 tackles (44 solo), three pass breakups and a forced fumble over nine regular-season games in 2020. Kiser emerged as a starting linebacker and a solid IDP fantasy asset before suffering a knee injury Week 11. He missed the remainder of the regular season, but he was back for Los Angeles' two playoffs games, so he should enter 2021 at full strength. Kiser, who managed 12-plus tackles in three of his appearances in 2020, looks primed to fill a starting role next season.
Kiser is listed as part of the active roster for Saturday's game, Eric D. Williams of SI.com reports. Kiser has missed the past six games due to a knee injury he was battling, but as of Saturday, the 25-year-old can rejoin his teammates as they take on the Seahawks. Prior to his injury, the linebacker managed to record 77 tackles (44 solo) and one forced fumble throughout the nine games he started.
Kiser (knee) is considered questionable heading into Saturday's wild-card matchup at Seattle, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Kiser has been unavailable since Week 11. However, there remains a chance for him to make a return in the opening round of the playoffs despite his practice involvement remaining limited Tuesday through Thursday. The 25-year-old linebacker was removed from injured reserve Dec. 30, but he wasn't able to return for Los Angeles' regular-season finale against Arizona. His presence in the lineup would be a boost against Russell Wilson and the Seahawks. Kiser has started in all nine of his appearances this season while racking up 12-plus tackles on three separate occasions.
Kiser (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports. Kiser was activated from injured reserve Wednesday to ensure he'd be eligible to play in the postseason. However, after three straight absences from practice, Kiser will sit out Week 17. Kenny Young is slated to start at inside linebacker again.
Kiser (knee) didn't participate in Wednesday's walkthrough practice, Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. Kiser needed to be activated from IR to be eligible for a potential postseason appearance. According to Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic, he's not expected to play in the Week 17 matchup against Arizona, a notion that's backed up by his absence from practice to start the week. Kenny Young should continue to start at inside linebacker until Kiser is ready to play.
