  • Chiefs' Jody Fortson: Activated off COVID-19 list

    Fortson (Achilles) was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Matt Derrick of ChiefsDigest.com reports.

    Forston has cleared protocols and can return to the team facility. However, the 26-year-old is still expected to miss the rest of the season due to a torn Achilles, so this move was simply procedural.

  • Chiefs' Jody Fortson: Lands on COVID list

    Fortson (Achilles) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Charles Goldman of The Chiefs Wire reports.

    Fortson was already on injured reserve due to a torn Achilles. He's been ruled out for the season, so this move was simply procedural.

  • Chiefs' Jody Fortson: Lands on IR

    The Chiefs placed Fortson (Achilles) on injured reserve Saturday.

    As expected, Fortson has landed on IR after an MRI confirmed that he suffered a season-ending Achilles injury during the Chiefs' Week 6 win. The reserve tight end recorded five catches for 47 yards and two touchdowns across six games during the 2021 campaign. Noah Gray and Blake Bell will likely see more opportunities behind Travis Kelce with Fortson out for the year.

  • Chiefs' Jody Fortson: Tears his Achilles

    Fortson suffered a torn Achilles in Sunday's win over Washington and will miss the rest of the season, according to James Palmer of NFL Network.

    Fortson's worst case scenario has been confirmed, and the tight end will miss the rest of the regular season as a result. Fortson made one catch for 27 yards Sunday against Washington, and he ends the season with five grabs for 47 yards and two scores across six games.

  • Chiefs' Jody Fortson: Suffers Achilles injury

    Fortson (Achilles) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against Washington.

    While no diagnosis has been confirmed, Fortson was down for a while before getting carted off with what appeared to be a serious injury. The coming days should shed more light on the severity of the injury, but it wouldn't be surprising if he has to miss an extended period of time.

  • Chiefs' Jody Fortson: Finds pay dirt again

    Fortson logged a two-yard touchdown reception on his only target Sunday versus the Eagles.

    Fortson saw a season-high 13 snaps (21 percent) in the contest but was primarily on the field in multiple tight end sets to help with the run game. He has begun to find some utility near the goal line but seems unlikely to produce enough on a weekly basis to warrant fantasy consideration in the vast majority of formats.

  • Chiefs' Jody Fortson: Tallies first career touchdown

    Fortson reeled in his two targets for seven yards and a touchdown Sunday versus the Chargers.

    Fortson's receptions give him three in the last two weeks, though his snap counts (no more than seven) reveal that he remains primarily involved in very specific formations and red-zone work. He's still behind each of the other three tight ends in terms of snap share and figures to remain that way. However, Fortson's production, when he's called upon, should put him in the good graces of the coaching staff.

  • Chiefs' Joe Fortson: Signs reserve/future contract

    Fortson signed a reserve/future contract with the Chiefs on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

  • Joe Fortson: Inks practice squad deal

    Fortson signed with the Chiefs' practice squad Sunday, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Fortson had a solid training camp with the Chiefs but couldn't secure a spot on the 53-man roster, as the team is loaded with receiver depth.

  • Chiefs' Joe Fortson: Impressing in camp

    Fortson has made a number of impressive plays during the Chiefs' training camp, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Fortson certainly stands out at 6-foot-6, 230 pounds, and has used his frame to make a number of tough catches on a daily basis. He's pushing to make the 53-man roster, but it may be a tough hill to climb considering the caliber of incumbent wideouts the team boasts.

  • Chiefs' Joe Fortson: Signs reserve/future contract

    Fortson signed a reserve/future contract with the Chiefs on Tuesday, according to the NFL's official transaction report.

    Fortson spent time with the Chiefs during the preseason and then spent the season on the practice squad. He'll now get a chance to develop in the Chiefs system this offseason as he looks to crack the 53-man roster in the fall.
