  • Chiefs' Lucas Niang: Could be 100 percent by end of camp

    Chiefs general manger Brett Veach said Friday that Niang (kneecap) is on schedule to be 100 percent by the end of training camp, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.

    Niang suffered a torn patella tendon in Week 17 last year and was placed on injured reserve shortly after, ending his season. Sweeney relays that Niang underwent a progress MRI recently, which prompted the comments from Veach. If healthy to start the 2022 campaign, Niang figures to be the Chiefs' Week 1 starter at right tackle.

  • Chiefs' Lucas Niang: Ruled out Saturday

    Niang (kneecap) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Broncos.

    Niang likely suffered a torn patella tendon in his left knee in last week's loss to the Bengals, so it's not very surprising to see him ruled out for Week 18. If his injury is confirmed, he'll likely be unavailable for the postseason.

  • Chiefs' Lucas Niang: Season likely over

    Niang (knee) is believed to have suffered a torn patella tendon in his left knee during the Chiefs' 34-31 loss to the Bengals on Sunday, which if true, would end his season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Niang was carted off the field in the first quarter with the injury. The second-year pro has manned the right tackle spot when healthy, His potential absence moving forward would be a fairly significant blow to the Chiefs' offensive line and likely lead to Andrew Wylie taking over Niang's role.

  • Chiefs' Lucas Niang: Possibly suffers serious injury

    Coach Andy Reid said Niang possibly suffered a torn patella tendon in his left knee during Sunday's loss to the Bengals, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

    Niang was carted off the field in the first quarter and was quickly ruled out for the remainder of the contest. If he has indeed torn his patella tendon, he will likely be sidelined for the rest of the season, and it could possibly even impact his status for the beginning of next year's training camp. With that said, there will be more information regarding his injury after he goes through the requisite tests.

  • Chiefs' Lucas Niang: Carted off with knee injury

    Niang (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's contest against the Bengals.

    Niang was carted off the field in the first quarter of the team's Week 17 contest. Orlando Brown (calf) had to leave warmups early, so the Chiefs are down their top two offensive tackles, leaving them with Andrew Wylie as their only active and healthy tackle.

  • Chiefs' Lucas Niang: Not on injury report

    Niang (undisclosed) wasn't listed on Thursday's injury report.

    Niang didn't suit up in last week's win over the Steelers, likely because he had a short turnaround after returning from the reserve/COVID-19 list. He's healthy and should be ready to play Sunday against the Bengals, occupying his usual starting right tackle role.

  • Chiefs' Lucas Niang: Returns from COVID list

    Niang was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports, yet he is still listed as questionable for Sunday against the Steelers according to the Chiefs' injury report.

    Niang will try to suit up Sunday, but despite his return from the COVID list, it looks like he may not be fit to return. If he is forced out Sunday, Andrew Wylie will likely draw the start at right tackle for the Chiefs when they match up with the Steelers on Sunday.
