Ward inked a second-round restricted free agent tender with the Chiefs on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The tender will set Ward to make $3.384 million with the Chiefs this season. The Middle Tennessee product handled a starting role at cornerback for much of the season last year, recording 51 tackles (38 solo), one sack and six pass breakups in 14 games. Sticking in Kansas City, Ward is expected to handle another sizeable role in the Chiefs' secondary in 2021.
Wared (hand) has been cleared for Monday's game against the Ravens, Chiefs' content creator Matt McMullen reports. Ward was limited at practice all week but will ultimately give it a go. Look for him to take on his usual workload barring any setbacks.
Ward (hand) is considered questionable for Monday's game versus the Ravens. Ward has been limited in practice all week, but his status is uncertain for Week 3's primetime matchup. He missed last game against the Chargers due to this hand injury, so Rashad Fenton filled the starting role and is poised to do so again if Ward is ultimately inactive.
Ward has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports. Rashad Fenton is expected to draw the start opposite rookie L'Jarius Sneed with Ward out. Considering the team believed Ward had a shot at playing earlier this week, there's a good chance he'll be back in action when the Chiefs travel to Baltimore in Week 3.
Ward's (hand) practice participation during the week will determine whether he's able to suit up in Week 2 against the Chargers, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports. Ward fractured his hand in the season-opening win over Houston, but he's reportedly doing well and could be back on the field 10 days later. While the Chiefs secondary held up well without the cornerback in the opener, his return would undoubtedly be a welcome sight.
