  • Chiefs' Tershawn Wharton: Gets in full practice Tuesday

    Wharton was a full participant at practice Tuesday ahead of Thursday's game versus Detroit.

    After sustaining a torn ACL last season in Week 5, Wharton has recovered enough that he should play in Week 1 of the 2023 season versus the Lions. Kansas City will need to lean heavily on Wharton to try to slow down Detroit's rushing attack, as it appears 2022 All-Pro Chris Jones is unlikely to be available as he tries to negotiate a contract extension.

    Wharton saw his first playing time of the preseason in Saturday's 33-32 win over the Browns, Pete Sweeney of SB Nation reports.

  • Chiefs' Tershawn Wharton: Officially moves to PUP list

    The Chiefs placed Wharton (knee) on the active/PUP list Wednesday, Matt Derrick of ChiefsDigest.com reports.

    As expected, Wharton, who tore his ACL in Week 5 last season, won't be cleared to practice to start training camp. However, he'll be eligible to practice and/or play at any point during the preseason whenever the Chiefs deem him ready. If Wharton remains out for the entirety of the preseason, he can be shifted to the reserve/PUP list and not count against the Kansas City roster. However, if that ends up being the case, he would be ineligible to suit up for the first four weeks of the regular season.

  • Chiefs' Tershawn Wharton: Placed on IR

    The Chiefs placed Wharton (knee) on injured reserve Saturday.

    Wharton suffered a torn ACL during the Chiefs' Week 5 win over the Raiders and is set to miss the remainder of the campaign, so his move to IR was simply transactional.
