  • Chiefs' Khalen Saunders: Good to go for AFC Championship

    Saunders (undisclosed) doesn't carry an injury designation heading into Sunday's game against the Bengals.

    Saunders was activated from injured reserve Tuesday and wasn't on the injury report all week, so he is expected to be active for the first time since Week 7. The backup defensive tackle played double-digit defensive snaps in all seven appearances this season, but he recorded at least one tackle in just three of those games. It's unclear how much playing time he will get against the Bengals.

  • Chiefs' Khalen Saunders: Activated from injured reserve

    Saunders (undisclosed) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network reports.

    Saunders was designated to return Jan. 4, so he was activated on the last day before his 21-day window expired. He hasn't played since Week 7, and his status for the AFC Championship Game is uncertain. Kansas City's practice report this week will give a better indication as to whether or not the team expects the 2019 third-round pick to be available Sunday.

  • Chiefs' Khalen Saunders: Designated for return from IR

    Saunders (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Saunders has missed time this season with a knee injury, but it's not yet known if that's why he was placed on IR. He last took the field in Week 7 against Tennessee and will be eligible to return for Week 16 against the Steelers.

  • Chiefs' Khalen Saunders: Off injury report

    Saunders (knee) wasn't listed on the Chiefs' injury report Wednesday.

    Saunders was unable to suit up for the Chiefs the past two weeks. The defensive tackle was able to practice fully and is no longer on the injury report, which could indicate that he'll be able to play in Week 10. Expect Derrick Nnadi to continue to see increased snaps until Saunders is able to play again.

  • Chiefs' Khalen Saunders: Won't play Monday night

    Saunders (knee) has been ruled out for Monday's contest against the Giants, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Saunders recorded a season-high four tackles against the Titans during Week 7, but he appears to have picked up a knee injury that will sideline him for at least one week. Tershawn Wharton will likely see an uptick in snaps with Saunders out for the Chiefs' Week 8 matchup with the Giants.

    The 24-year-old has been sidelined since suffering the dislocated elbow in the season opener, but he's back in time for Week 7. Saunders filled a rotational role with 22 tackles and one sack last season and figures to be used similarly in 2020 now that's he's healthy.
