Top Cornell Powell News

  • Chiefs' Cornell Powell: Back with Super Bowl champs

    The Chiefs signed Powell on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Powell, who finished this past season on Kansas City's practice squad, will thus have an opportunity to compete for a depth slot in the team's 2024 wideout corps. The 2021 fifth-rounder last saw regular-season action in 2022, when he suited up for three games with the Chiefs en route to recording three snaps on offense and 28 snaps as a special-teamer.

  • Cornell Powell: Joins KC's practice squad

    The Chiefs added Powell (hamstring) to their practice squad Wednesday.

    Powell was nursing a hamstring injury prior to getting waived during final roster cuts, so his subsequent addition to Kansas City's practice squad indicates he has put the issue behind him. The 25-year-old has spent his first two seasons bouncing back and forth between the Chiefs' practice and active rosters, and is looking at a similar scenario in 2023.

  • Cornell Powell: Dropped by the Chiefs

    Powell was waived without any injury designation by Kansas City on Tuesday.

    Powell tweaked his hamstring during the Chiefs' 33-32 preseason victory versus the Browns on Aug. 26, but he was not tagged with any injury designation when Kansas City cut him loose Tuesday. The 2021 fifth-round pick spent most of last season on the Chiefs' practice squad, and he received a reserve/future contract in January after being elevated for three games in 2022. Should he clear waivers, Powell could be a prime candidate to rejoin the team's practice squad ahead of the 2023 campaign.

  • Chiefs' Cornell Powell: Tweaks hamstring in win

    Powell, who caught two of three targets for 20 yards in Saturday's 33-32 preseason win over the Browns, is dealing with a hamstring injury, Pete Sweeney of SB Nation reports.

    Head coach Andy Reid noted after the game that Powell was dealing with "a little bit" of a hamstring issue and is confident that the injury is not serious. Powell played in all three preseason games and accrued six catches for 63 yards and a touchdown.

  • Chiefs' Cornell Powell: Gets new deal with Chiefs

    Kansas City signed Powell (undisclosed) to a reserve/future contract Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Powell landed on the practice squad injured list in early January and subsequently sat out the Chiefs' postseason run. The nature of Powell's injury wasn't ultimately disclosed, but this offseason he will get a chance to compete for a role on the 53-man roster for 2023.

  • Cornell Powell: Placed on injured list

    The Chiefs placed Powell (undisclosed) on the practice squad injured list Monday, Matt Derrick of ChiefsDigest.com reports.

    It's unclear exactly what injury Powell is dealing with, but he'll now be ineligible to play for at least the Chiefs' next four games. As a result, his earliest possible chance to return would come if the team makes it to the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 12. However, it the Chiefs secure the No. 1 seed in the AFC and a subsequent first-round bye in the playoffs, then Powell will not be able to return before the end of the season. The second-year wideout has not recorded a target over three appearances this season.

  • Cornell Powell: Returns to practice squad

    Powell reverted to the Chiefs' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Powell was elevated to serve as the team's fifth receiver against the Bengals, as Kadarius Toney remained out with a hamstring injury. The former played five snaps on special teams, but he failed to tally any stats. If Toney remains out Week 14 against the Broncos, Powell may find himself with another opportunity on the active roster.

  • Chiefs' Cornell Powell: Elevated for Week 13

    Powell was elevated to the Chiefs' active roster Saturday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

    Powell will join the active roster as the fifth wide receiver with Kadarius Toney (hamstring) out for another week. Powell will contribute primarily on special teams, as he has played only three offensive snaps across two games on the campaign.

  • Cornell Powell: Heads back to practice squad

    Powell reverted to the Chiefs' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Powell was activated for the second game in a row with Mecole Hardman (abdomen) and Kadarius Toney (hamstring) both sidelined Week 12. However, the practice-squad wideout still served an extremely limited role in the Chiefs' banged-up receiving corps, playing just two of his 10 snaps on offense against the Rams. Powell has yet to record a catch in his NFL career, and he'll be eligible for one more elevation from Kansas City's practice squad this year.

  • Chiefs' Cornell Powell: Elevated for Week 12

    The Chiefs elevated Powell from the practice squad Saturday, Matt Derrick of ChiefsDigest.com reports.

    If Powell is active for Sunday's game against the Rams, he'll add depth to a receiver group that will be without Mecole Hardman (abdomen) and Kadarius Toney (hamstring) for the Week 12 contest. Even so, Powell will still be fifth in the pecking order at wideout, and he's more likely to see snaps on special teams than on offense.

  • Cornell Powell: Shifts back to practice squad

    Powell reverted to the Chiefs' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Powell made his NFL debut as he was activated from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's win over the Chargers. The second-year wideout figured to provide depth for Kansas City with Mecole Hardman (abdomen) on IR and JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) ruled inactive. However, Powell did not log a target and ultimately played just one of his 16 snaps on offense Week 11. The 25-year-old will now be eligible for two more elevations while on the Chiefs practice squad this season.

  • Chiefs' Cornell Powell: Will be active Sunday

    The Chiefs elevated Powell from their practice squad Saturday for Sunday's matchup against the Chargers, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Powell was drafted by the Chiefs in the fifth round of the 2021 Draft, but he'll have a chance to make his NFL debut in Week 11 of the 2022 campaign. Kansas City recently placed Mecole Hardman (abdomen) on IR and already ruled out JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) for Week 11, so Powell and fellow practice-squad wideout Marcus Kemp figure to provide depth behind Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Kadarius Toney, Justin Watson and Skyy Moore.

  • Cornell Powell: Gets another practice squad chance

    The Chiefs signed Powell to the practice squad Wednesday.

    Powell spent the 2021 season on Kansas City's practice squad, so his position is a familiar one. The second-year pro is still looking for a chance to make his NFL debut.
