Top Derrick Nnadi News

  • Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Stays with Chiefs

    Nnadi agreed to a contract with Kansas City on Sunday, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.

    The contract details are not yet known, but he'll remain with the team that selected him in the third round of the 2018 Draft. Nnadi is coming off a 2021 campaign in which he played all 17 regular-season games, recording 38 tackles (21 solo) and a career-high three sacks.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Back to full speed

    Nnadi (hip) was a full participant at Thursday's practice.

    Nnadi was limited Wednesday but quickly shook off the injury. The 2018 third-round pick will be ready for Sunday's matchup against the Chargers. Through two games, Nnadi has posted two solo tackles across 50 defensive snaps.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Limited at practice Wednesday

    Nnadi (hip) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

    The hip injury first cropped up in mid-August, but Nnadi has played in the first two games of the season and recorded two solo tackles in a rotational role. The 25-year-old should be able to avoid an injury designation for Sunday's matchup with the Chargers if he can put in a full practice Thursday or Friday.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: injures hip in practice

    Coach Andy Reid said Nnadi was dealing with a hip flexor ailment Thursday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Nnadi played in 15 games last year, recording 47 tackles before a knee injury prevented him from hitting the field for the last game of the regular season. Minor hip flexor injuries tend to take one to three weeks to recover from, so Kansas City will likely take things slow with the fourth-year defensive tackle just to make sure he's ready to go for Week 1.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Considered questionable

    Nnadi (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Nnadi suffered a knee injury during the practice week and sat out Friday's session. The third-year defensive tackle is in danger of missing the first game of his NFL career. He has 47 tackles through 15 games this year, one stop shy of tying last year's career high in the category.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Good to go

    Nnadi (ankle) practiced in full Tuesday.

    Nnadi was limited by an ankle injury Tuesday, but he's now resumed participating in practice without restrictions. He'll draw his usual start at defensive tackle during Thursday's regular-season debut against the Texans, barring any setbacks.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Limited Monday

    Nnadi (ankle) was a limited participant in Monday's practice.

    Nnadi will have two more opportunities to up his level of practice participation ahead of Thursday's season opener against the Texans. In the event that the starting defensive tackle is in any way limited Week 1, Khalen Saunders would stand to handle increased snaps.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Improves in sophomore campaign

    Nnadi racked up 48 tackles (18 solo), a sack, an interception and a forced fumble during his 16-game 2019 campaign.

    Nnadi's improved production in his second professional season corresponded with an increase of more than 150 snaps recorded. With Chris Jones a candidate to hit free agency this offseason, there's a chance that Nnadi could slide into an even more prominent role on the defensive line next season. However, there's a good chance the Chiefs will extend Jones, which would likely result in a similar role for Nnadi next season.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Grabs first career interception

    Nnadi recorded one assisted tackle and an interception in Monday night's win over the Chargers.

    The play was more of a sack-fumble, but the ball fell from Philip Rivers' hand directly into Nnadi's and was ruled an interception. The 23-year-old is up to 38 tackles (15 solo) on the year.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Practices fully Tuesday

    Nnadi (elbow) was a full participant at Tuesday's practice, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

    Nnadi was a limited participant Monday but his return to full participation puts him on track to play Thursday. The 23-year-old has 26 tackles (11 solo) with one sack and one forced fumble as he's played about 80 percent of the snaps in the last two games.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Dealing with elbow injury

    Nnadi (elbow) was a limited participant in Monday's practice estimate.

    Nnadi didn't appear bothered by anything during this past Sunday's game against the Texans, as he played a career-high 76 defensive snaps. Still, his elbow will be closely monitored during this week's practices leading up to Thursday's game against the Broncos.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Sack in Detroit

    Nnadi recorded eight tackles (five solo), a sack and a forced fumble across 40 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Lions.

    Nnadi only played in about half of the defensive snaps Sunday but made his presence felt throughout the contest, as he was tied for the team lead in tackles. The game also marked his first career sack, one which caused a Matthew Stafford fumble early in the third quarter.
