  • Chiefs' Deon Yelder: Activated off injured reserve

    Yelder (groin) was activated off injured reserve Saturday.

  • Chiefs' Deon Yelder: Set to return to practice

    Yelder (groin) is slated to return to practice this week, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

  • Chiefs' Deon Yelder: Questionable for divisional round

    Yelder (groin) is questionable for Sunday's AFC divisional-round game against the Browns, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.

    Yelder will handle a depth role at tight end if he's able to play Sunday, but Kansas City's target distribution will be essentially unchanged if he's sidelined. In 14 regular-season games in 2020, Yelder only saw 11 targets.

  • Chiefs' Deon Yelder: Minimal production in 2020

    Yelder compiled just seven catches for 36 yards on 11 targets during the 2020 campaign.

    Yelder appeared in 14 games for the Chiefs and logged 194 offensive snaps, but it's not hard to understand why he saw very few balls tossed his direction in a Chiefs passing offense loaded with talent. Yelder's two-year deal with the Chiefs expires this offseason, but he remains a restricted free agent and would return to Kansas City if the front office elects to match any offers from other clubs.
