  • Chiefs' Richie James: Lands on IR

    The Chiefs placed James (knee) on injured reserve Saturday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    James failed to log a practice all week while dealing with an MCL injury. He played in just three offensive snaps in Week 2 against the Jaguars but plays an important role as the Chiefs' primary returner on special teams. He'll be forced to sit out for at least the next four games and is eligible to return in Week 7 against the Chargers on Sunday, Oct. 22.

  • Chiefs' Richie James: Won't play versus Chicago

    James (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's Week 3 game against the Bears.

    James didn't practice at all this week, as he's dealing with an MCL issue. The veteran slot man has played just 26 offensive snaps through two games, catching one pass for six yards on three targets. His loss will be felt more on special teams where James is the Chiefs' punt returner.

  • Chiefs' Richie James: Missing second straight practice

    James (knee) will not practice Thursday, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports.

    James is still recovering from an MCL injury and is likely on the wrong side of questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears. According to special-teams coach Dave Toub, if James misses, the team may turn to a committee of Kadarius Toney (toe), Skyy Moore and Justin Watson for return duties, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

  • Chiefs' Richie James: Dealing with MCL injury

    Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said James won't practice Wednesday due to an MCL injury, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.

    James is likely in danger of missing the team's Week 3 game against the Bears, though he hasn't officially been ruled out just yet. The 28-year-old receiver played just three snaps on offense in last week's win over the Jaguars, but he holds an important role on special teams as the Chiefs' top kickoff and punt returner.

  • Chiefs' Richie James: Snares one pass in opener

    James hauled in one of two targets for six yards during Thursday's 21-20 loss to the Lions.

    As has become par for the course since Tyreek Hill was traded to the Dolphins prior to the 2022 campaign, quarterback Patrick Mahomes continues to spread the ball around the wide receiver room, targeting six different wideouts at least two times. James did play more snaps than both Kadariaus Toney and rookie Rashee Rice. Even so, James is unlikely to produce consistently enough to warrant fantasy consideration in most formats at this juncture.

  • Chiefs' Richie James: Upgrades to full practice

    James (knee) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice.

    After being listed as a limited participant on Kansas City's initial Week 1 injury report released Monday, James' ability to take every rep a day later clears up any concern about his health heading into Thursday's season opener versus the Lions. Fellow wideout Kadarius Toney (knee) is also trending toward suiting up despite being limited Tuesday for the second day in a row, while star tight end Travis Kelce's status appears to be more in question after he hyperextended his knee during Tuesday's session. James is expected to fill a minor role in the Kansas City offense when the team is at full strength, but a potential Kelce absence in Week 1 could open up extra targets for several pass catchers, James included.

  • Chiefs' Richie James: Limited with knee injury

    James was a limited participant during Monday's practice due to a knee injury.

    The severity of James' knee issue remains unclear, but it's a bit concerning because Kadarius Toney (knee) also was limited Monday. There doesn't appear to be too much concern about either wideout's availability for Thursday's season opener versus Detroit, but fantasy managers still are encouraged to check Kansas City's injury reports over the next couple of days.
