Coach Andy Reid said Monday that he's "not optimistic" Schwartz (back) will be available for Super Bowl LV against the Buccaneers on Sunday, Feb. 7, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.
Schwartz landed on IR due to a back injury mid-November, and he still has yet to be designated for even a return to practice. With Eric Fisher having just suffered a torn Achilles, it would be a huge boost for Kansas City to get the All-Pro right tackle back, but it doesn't look like Schwartz has much of a chance to return to the field in time for the Super Bowl in two weeks.
The Chiefs placed Schwartz (back) on injured reserve Saturday.
The Chiefs will be without their All-Pro right tackle for at least three more games. Schwartz hasn't played since a Week 6 matchup against the Bills, and now he'll be required to sit out until Week 14 at the earliest. Mike Remmers (ribs) is expected to retain the right tackle role for the time being.
Schwartz (back) has been ruled out for Kansas City's upcoming Sunday night game against Las Vegas.
The 2018 All-Pro hasn't made an appearance since Week 6, with a back injury keeping him inactive for three straight contests. Even afforded a Week 10 bye to recuperate, Schwartz was held out of practice entirely Thursday and Friday. Behind Schwartz at right tackle, Mike Remmers (ribs) has been dealing with injury himself, entering the weekend listed with a questionable designation after logging a full practice Friday.
The Chiefs activated Schwartz (back) off the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The good news for the veteran was that he was cleared through the league's virus protocols; however, he was sidelined during Thursday's practice due to a back issue. Schwartz is eligible for Sunday's game against Las Vegas, but if the back issue is forced to keep him out of the game, Mike Remmers (ribs) or Yasir Durant would be in line for the start at right tackle.
Schwartz (back) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday as a high-risk close contact of someone who tested positive for the virus, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Eric Fisher landed on the COVID-19 list in similar circumstances, so the Chiefs are currently without both starting offensive tackles. However, Schwartz and Fisher could both be back on the active roster in time for Sunday's game at Las Vegas.
Schwartz (back) will remain sidelined for Sunday's game against the Panthers.
No surprise here, as Schwartz has yet to even return to practice. The absence will mark his third consecutive game missed. The right tackle will now set his sights on a potential Week 10 return against the Raiders.
Schwartz (back) won't play Sunday against the Jets, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.
Schwartz will miss a second consecutive game, though the heavily-favored Chiefs should be able to get by without the standout lineman against a Jets team that's still in search of its first win this season. The right tackle will hope to make his return against Carolina in Week 9.
Schwartz (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Denver.
The 31-year-old aggravated his back injury during Monday's win over the Bills and will be sidelined for at least one game. Mike Remmers is expected to start at right tackle in Schwartz's absence.
Schwartz won't return to Monday's game against the Bills after suffering a back injury.
Schwartz carried a questionable tag into Monday's game due to a back injury, and it appears he's aggravated the issue. Mike Remmers is expected to slot in at right tackle for the remainder of the game.
Schwartz (back) is active for Monday's game versus the Bills, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports.
Schwartz practiced without limitations all week, but he still was marked as questionable heading into the AFC showdown. The veteran lineman is fine, though, and he'll start at right tackle.
Schwartz (knee) returned to Sunday's game against the Titans, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.
Schwartz only missed a few drives before resuming his role at right tackle.
Schwartz was forced out of Sunday's game against the Titans with a knee injury.
The Chiefs' offensive front is in rough shape. It entered the game without Eric Fisher (sports hernia) and Laurent Duvernay-Tardif (ankle), and now it's missing Schwartz and Martinas Rankin (knee). Stefen Wisniewski or Andrew Wylie will likely bump to right tackle in the meantime.
Schwartz (back) participated at Friday's practice, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports.
Schwartz has been dealing with back spasms throughout the week, but he's good to go after a couple days off. The 30-year-old received a one-year, $11.26 million extension in June and will once again work as the Chiefs' starting right tackle following his first-team All-Pro campaign.
Schwartz (back) is absent from Wednesday's practice, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.
Schwartz is managing back spasms and is reportedly considered day-to-day. It doesn't appear that the Chiefs are concerned about an extended absence for Schwartz, but if he were to miss any time due to injury it would certainly impede Kansas City's offense as a whole. The 30-year-old offensive tackle signed a one-year, $11.26 million extension in June.
Schwartz is considered day-to-day with back spasms, but the situation isn't considered to be a concern, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Schwartz was forced to leave practice early Monday. It obviously bodes well that the team isn't concerned by the 30-year-old's situation, as his absence would impact the Kansas City offense as a whole to some degree. Schwartz was graded as Pro Football Focus' fourth-best tackle overall in 2018 and was one of only three tackles to receive top-10 grades in both pass and run blocking. The Chiefs signed Schwartz to a one-year, $11.26 million extension in June to lock him up through the 2021 season.
Schwartz agreed to a one-year, $11.26 million contract extension with the Chiefs on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Schwartz bcomes the second-highest paid right tackle after a season in which he took home first-team All-Pro honors. He also graded out as Pro Football Focus' fourth-ranked tackle overall in 2018 and was one of only three tackles to receive top-10 grades in both pass and run blocking. Schwartz is now under contract with Kansas City through 2021. His continued presence will be good news for Patrick Mahomes, Damien Williams and the rest of the Chiefs offense.
Schwartz (knee) did not practice Wednesday.
Schwartz appears to have sustained a knee injury during Thursday's loss to the Chargers. If the starting right tackle were to miss any time, Andrew Wylie would likely slot into the starting lineup.
Schwartz (ankle) is active for Sunday's tilt with the Colts.
After being held out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday, the tackle will take the field on Sunday. Jah Reid will be waiting in the wings, should Schwartz be hampered by his ankle injury.
Schwartz (ankle) is questionable to play Sunday against the Colts.
Schwartz was held out of practice both Wednesday and Thursday, but was a full participant Friday. He appears to have favorable odds of suiting up.
One of the reasons Johnny Manziel was such a spectacular player in college was because he was able to extend a play and throw to a big receiver down the field. Landing with the Browns is a total win for Johnny Football because he'll have Josh Gordon, Jordan Cameron, Greg Little and Nate Burleson as down-field targets along with Andrew Hawkins as a quick, short-area weapon. Ben Tate rumbling in the backfield doesn't hurt either.
Another impressive factor is the Browns O-line, which has two studs in left tackle Joe Thomas and center Alex Mack. If the line can improve from last season (we're looking at you, Mitchell Schwartz), then Manziel will have time to make good throws.
Of all the places he could have gone in the draft, Cleveland's the best fit. Not only should he inject life into the franchise but he should end up starting in Week 1 against the Steelers. Expect Manziel to get taken late in every single seasonal draft as a combo backup Fantasy QB/sleeper who could get some serious trade value. He'll get picked in the middle rounds in dynasty/keeper leagues and should be considered a Top 5 choice in rookie-only drafts.
