Chiefs' Daniel Kilgore: Cleared for big game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilgore (undisclosed) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list and will be available for the Super Bowl against the Buccaneers on Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The 33-year-old landed on the list as a close contact of an infected individual at the start of the week, but he cleared the protocols in time for Sunday's contest. Kilgore should fill his usual role as Kansas City's reserve center behind starter Austin Reiter

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilgore (undisclosed) has been added to the reserve/COVID-19 list due to close contact, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Kilgore was added to the list along with wide receiver Demarcus Robinson. The reserve center shouldn't play a major factor in the Chiefs' Super Bowl game plan, but his status will be something to monitor throughout the week.

Chiefs' Daniel Kilgore: Signing with Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilgore is expected to sign with the Chiefs, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Kilgore spent last season with the Dolphins, but they ultimately chose not to pick up his option. The veteran center has been in the league since 2011 and will now look for a fresh start in Kansas City.

Dolphins' Daniel Kilgore: Moving on from Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins will not pick up Kilgore's contract option for 2020, making him an unrestricted free agent, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Kilgore will hit free agency when the new league year kicks off March 18. Though the 32-year-old started at center for Miami during all 13 of his regular-season appearances in 2019, he could have more appeal as a reserve option for clubs elsewhere in the league.

Dolphins' Daniel Kilgore: Questionable Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilgore (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game at Indianapolis, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Kilgore was a limited practice participant all week and appears to have a good chance of retaking the field Sunday. The 31-year-old has missed the last three games due to the knee issue.

Dolphins' Daniel Kilgore: Officially doubtful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilgore (knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Kilgore returned to practice this week and logged a trio of limited sessions. It looks as though the starting center is trending towards sitting out Sunday's divisional contest against the Jets, in which case he'll target a return Week 10 versus Indianapolis.

Dolphins' Daniel Kilgore: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilgore (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Kilgore has missed two straight games due to a knee injury, but he's making tangible progress in his recovery. Depending on what the starting center is able to do in the week's final two practices, he appears to have a shot at suiting up for Sunday's divisional tilt against the Jets.

Dolphins' Daniel Kilgore: Unavailable for MNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilgore (knee) is ruled out for Monday's game against the Steelers, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Kilgore will miss his second straight game, which should afford Evan Boehm another start at center. He should have his hands full in this outing since the Steelers rank sixth with 20 sacks over six contests.

Dolphins' Daniel Kilgore: Out against Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilgore (knee) will not play in Sunday's Week 7 matchup with the Bills, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Kilgore was a non-participant at practice, so this outcome is no surprise. Look for Evan Boehm to fill in for him at center while he is sidelined. His next chance to return will be in Week 8 versus the Steelers.

Dolphins' Daniel Kilgore: Starts preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilgore started and played 14 snaps in Friday's preseason game with the Buccaneers.

Kilgore seems to be over the triceps injury that cost him all but four games last season. The 31-year-old is on track to resume his starting role in 2019.

Dolphins' Daniel Kilgore: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilgore (triceps) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, per NFL Communications.

Kilgore was expected to miss the remainder of the 2018 campaign because of the triceps injury, so his placement on IR shouldn't come as much of a shock. The Dolphins signed Wesley Johnson on Tuesday to add some depth at center.

Dolphins' Daniel Kilgore: Dealing with torn triceps, likely to miss rest of '18
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilgore suffered a torn triceps during Sunday's loss to the Patriots, Cameron Wolfe of reports.

Although nothing is official yet, the devastating injury will likely keep Kilgore sidelined for the rest of the season. Kilgore's expected absence would mark the second starter along the Miami offensive line to be lost for the year.

Dolphins' Daniel Kilgore: Injures arm Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilgore suffered an arm injury during Sunday's game against the Patriots and is questionable to return.

Travis Swanson will fill in at center as long as Kilgore is sidelined.

Dolphins' Daniel Kilgore: Traded to Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilgore was traded to the Dolphins along with 2018 seventh-round pick in exchange for the 49ers 2018 seventh-round pick, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

The move to ship Kilgore to Miami is a bit puzzling, considering the 49ers inked him to three-year extension back in February. However, they did sign Weston Richburg to a five-year deal on Wednesday, who has played guard and center the past three seasons. Kilgore figures to slide into the starting center role immediately after the Dolphins parted ways with Mike Pouncey.

49ers' Daniel Kilgore: Signs three-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilgore signed a three-year contract extension with the 49ers on Wednesday.

After the 49ers inked quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to a long-term extension earlier this offseason, ensuring he had a dependable center snapping to him for the next few years became a top priority. The 30-year-old Kilgore has been a foundation piece for the offensive line since joining San Francisco as a fifth-round pick in 2011 and will now be in the fold with the team through the 2020 campaign. The center is coming off a 2017 season in which he started a career-high 16 games and graded out as the 49ers' top offensive lineman, per Pro Football Focus.

49ers' Daniel Kilgore: Hamstring fine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilgore logged 29 snaps in Sunday's preseason loss to the Vikings.

The veteran lineman is coming off of hamstring surgery this past offseason, but his participation in team activities shows that he will begin the season healthy. Kilgore is the front-runner to win the 49ers' starting center job.

49ers' Daniel Kilgore: Expected to be ready come spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilgore expects to be recovered from his season-ending hamstring injury in time for offseason workouts, Cam Inman of The Mercury News reports.

Kilgore had surgery to repair his hamstring after he was placed on injured reserve a few weeks ago, and, though it'll take some time for him to recover, he claims that he'll be a full go come April, when the team's offseason program begins.

49ers' Daniel Kilgore: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilgore (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

The 49ers promoted offensive guard Alex Balducci to replace Kiglore on the roster, but Marcus Martin likely will take over as the team's starting center. The specifics of his knee injury remain relatively unknown, but the 49ers will continue to rely on the next-man-up mantra, as they have done for much of this injury-riddle season.

49ers' Daniel Kilgore: Injures leg Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kilgore suffered a leg injury Sunday against the Jets.

Kilgore was ruled out for the remainder of the game. Although it still isn't clear how severe his injury may be, it looked to occur to his right leg. In his absence, the 49ers moved to an O-line consisting of Marcus Martin at center, Andrew Tiller at left guard and Adam Snyder at left tackle.
