  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Three tackles, including sack

    Danna recorded three solo tackles, including a sack, in Sunday's 41-10 win over the Bears.

    Danna was once again able to get to the quarterback and he is now up to 2.5 sacks on the season. The defensive end set a career high with 27 tackles and five sacks in 2022 and he's on pace to leave those numbers in the dust this year.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Returns to practice

    Danna (calf) is practicing Thursday, Pete Sweeney of reports.

    Danna suffered the injury in late July and has seemingly been absent from practice since. The Michigan product has been a key reserve on the Chiefs' defensive line since coming into the league in 2020, so his return is certainly good news for the team's pass-rushing rotation.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Not at practice

    Danna (calf) was absent from Saturday's practice, Matt Derrick of reports.

    He was also absent during Friday's practice along with tight end Jody Fortson and linebacker Drue Tranquill. Danna registered 27 tackles, five sacks and two forced fumbles in 13 games last season and is a key depth piece for a Chiefs' defensive front led by Chris Jones, Derrick Nnadi and George Karlaftis.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Another solid campaign in 2022

    Danna racked up 27 tackles (nine solo), five sacks and two forced fumbles during the 2022 regular season.

    Danna's 2022 campaign largely aligned with his previous two, but he did finish with career-high totals for both tackles and sacks. He's entering the final season of his rookie contract in 2023 and should maintain a regular role in the lineup for the Chiefs once again.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Returns in full

    Danna (calf) was a full participant in practice Wednesday.

    Danna has been dealing with a calf injury over the last few weeks, but he took a key step forward by returning to practice in full Wednesday. He should return to the field Sunday against Tennessee barring any setbacks.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Full participant Thursday

    Danna (calf) practiced fully Thursday.

    Danna had missed the team's last three games with a calf injury, but his ability to log a full session Thursday indicates he's moved past the issue. If the 257-pounder is indeed cleared for action against the Bills on Sunday, he'd likely serve as a rotational piece on the Chiefs' defensive line.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Sidelined Monday

    Danna (calf) was ruled inactive ahead of Monday's game against the Raiders.

    Danna will miss his third game in a row due to a lingering calf injury despite returning to practice in full last Thursday. With the 24-year-old out, expect Malik Herring and Carlos Dunlap to rotate in behind starting defensive ends George Karlaftis and Frank Clark.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Back in full Thursday

    Danna (calf) was listed as a full participant on the Chiefs' injury report Thursday.

    Danna was limited during practice last week and was ruled out for the second straight game with a calf injury during Sunday's win over Tampa Bay. Now, the 6-foot-2 defensive end looks to be healthy again after logging two tackles over 70 defensive snaps through the first two weeks of the season. Danna should once again play a rotational role behind George Karlaftis and Frank Clark moving forward.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Remains out

    Danna (calf) is out Sunday against the Buccaneers.

    Danna picked up the injury in Week 2 against the Chargers, and he was unable to play Sunday against the Colts. His ability to log limited practices Thursday and Friday at least signals that he may be available in Week 5 against the Raiders.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: No-go for Week 3

    Danna (calf) has been ruled out for the Chiefs' Week 3 contest against the Colts on Sunday, Adam Teicher of reports.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Won't return Thursday

    Danna (calf) was ruled out for the remainder of Thursday night's game against the Chargers, Pete Sweeney of reports.

    Danna recorded two tackles over 35 defensive snaps played before exiting with an unspecified calf injury during the second half of the Chiefs' Week 2 tilt. While the exact nature and severity of this issue is still unclear, the backup defensive end will now have a 10-day break to work his way back heading into Kansas City's next game Sept. 25.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Turns in two-sack performance

    Danna racked up four tackles (three solo) and two sacks during Kansas City's win over the Eagles in Week 4.

    Danna was held without a sack during the first two weeks of the season, but over the Chiefs' last two games he's managed to bring down opposing quarterbacks three times. The second-year pro will work to continue his ascension Sunday night versus the Bills.
