  • Chiefs' Drue Tranquill: Posts another solid campaign

    Tranquill compiled 79 tackles (54 solo), including 4.5 sacks, and forced two fumbles during the 2023 regular season. While the Chiefs still counted on Tranquill to produce when he was on the field, his 552 snaps in 2023 pale in comparison to the 935 he logged a season ago in the final year of his rookie deal with the Chargers, hence the near halving of his 146 tackles from 2022. Tranquill's contract granted him just a season in KC, so he'll head to the offseason looking for a new deal in 2024.

  • Chiefs' Drue Tranquill: Tallies sack in third straight game

    Tranquill notched 11 tackles (seven solo), one sack and one forced fumble during Sunday's 24-9 loss to Denver. Tranquill has cemented himself as a legitimate pillar of Kansas City's defense, once again leading the team in tackles. His sack came while he was matched up against a scrambling Russell Wilson on fourth-and-short, as he managed to stop the quarterback short of the first-down line. The Chiefs will need Tranquill to keep up his production Week 9 versus Miami.

  • Chiefs' Drue Tranquill: Leads team in tackles

    Tranquill logged eight tackles (seven solo) during Sunday's 23-20 win against the Jets. Tranquill led the Chiefs in tackles for the second straight week while starting in place of Nick Bolton (ankle) once again. The 28-year-old currently has the most tackles on the team with 23 but will likely see his playing time reduced once Bolton is able to return.

An unrestricted free agent this offseason, Tranquill has earned himself a starting role either with the Chargers or somewhere else.

  • Chargers' Drue Tranquill: Seven stops in close loss

    Tranquill recorded seven tackles (six solo) during Sunday's 30-27 defeat to the Chiefs. Tranquill's production came back down to earth after he logged a season-high 15 tackles against the 49ers last week. However, the linebacker still tied safety Derwin James for a team high in tackles Week 12, as the Chargers' defense once again struggled to keep the Chiefs' offense in check for a full four quarters. Tranquill has now played every defensive snap in four of the Bolts' last five games, recording 33 tackles and three sacks over that span. He will look to continue his career-best campaign against the Cardinals this coming Sunday.

    Tranquill has missed the past two practices due to a groin injury, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports.

  • Chargers' Drue Tranquill: Officially out Sunday

    Tranquill (illness) will not pay in Sunday's Week 10 game versus the Vikings, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. Tranquill landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday after testing positive for the illness. He will need two negative tests at least 24 hours apart before he is deemed eligible to return.

The 2019 fourth-round pick has stepped into an important defensive role for Los Angeles. However, it may be a difficult afternoon next Sunday as Tranquill and the Chargers look to contain star running back Dalvin Cook.

  • Chargers' Drue Tranquill: Active to face Patriots

    Tranquill (chest) is active for Sunday's game against New England. Tranquill was limited in all three practices this week coming out of Los Angeles' Week 7 bye, but he's been deemed healthy enough to make his return to action -- he hasn't played since Week 5 when he recorded 11 tackles against the Browns. His presence certainly provides a boost to Los Angeles' defensive unit.

Tranquill missed the Chargers' Week 6 game against Baltimore, but after a Week 7 bye he is headed in the right direction. The third-year pro was enjoying a bit of a breakout campaign and carving out a bigger role for himself each week. Despite missing a game already, Tranquill is still on pace for a career high in tackles.

  • Chargers' Drue Tranquill: Placed on IR

    Tranquill (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. Tranquill sustained a broken ankle in Sunday's win over the Bengals and could miss the remainder of the 2020 season, so this move was expected. The Chargers elevated Asmar Bilal to the active roster to bolster their linebacker depth alongside Nick Vigil and Emeke Egbule.

  • Chargers' Drue Tranquill: Suffers leg injury

    Tranquill suffered a leg injury in the team's Week 1 contest against the Bengals and will not return, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. The injury appeared to be serious, as a cart came out to take Tranquill off the field and an air cast was applied to his leg. Nick Vigil will see an uptick in snaps in his absence. Coach Anthony Lynn said postgame he doesn't expect Tranquill back "any time soon," per Daniel Popper of The Athletic.

  • Chargers' Drue Tranquill: Expected to be three-down starter

    Tranquill is expected to occupy a three-down role this season, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. This is a bit of a two-fold breakdown as there was some thought Tranquill could take over at middle linebacker, moving Denzel Perryman or 2020 first-round pick Kenneth Murray to the outside. Instead, Tranquill will start on the outside and should play every down as well with the likes of Murray or even Kyzir White rotating off the field in obvious passing situations. It's an important distinction in deeper IDP leagues as Tranquill registered 75 tackles despite playing just 322 defensive snaps his rookie year.

  • Chargers' Drue Tranquill: Another impressive tackle total

    Tranquill tallied eight tackles (seven total) in the 45-10 win Sunday over the Jaguars. Throughout the last three games, Tranquill has emerged as the Chargers' top tackler, leading the team in two out of the three games, including a 14-tackle outing against the Raiders in Week 10. It's come at the cost of Thomas Davis, and to some extent Denzel Perryman, although the latter did not play Sunday due to disciplinary reasons.
