Chiefs' Dee Ford: Records sack in opener win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford recorded four solo tackles, including a sack, in Sunday's 38-28 win over the Chargers.

Ford played in just six games due to a back injury in 2017, tallying 2.0 sacks on the year. In his last full season (2016), he recorded 10.0 sacks and was a dominant force rushing the passer. He looked the part in Week 1 and will look to maintain the strong play against the Steelers in Week 2.

Chiefs' Dee Ford: Close to 100 percent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (back) is close to receiving full medical clearance, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports. "Ford is here and he's doing great. We anticipate that he's going to be OK as we get into pads," said Chiefs Vice President of Sports Medicine and Performance Rick Burkholder.

Ford has been nursing an unspecified back injury since last October, and the linebacker was consequently a limited participant in offseason workouts this spring. However, it doesn't seem Ford will be held under wraps much longer. When healthy, the 2014 first-rounder should instantly return to the starting lineup opposite Justin Houston.

Chiefs' Dee Ford: Skips team drills in offseason workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (back) did not participate in team during the offseason workouts, but Chiefs coach Andy Reid expects him to be healthy for the start of training camp, the Chiefs' official site reports.

Following the release of veteran Tamba Hali this offseason, the Chiefs appear content to give Ford the reins to the starting role opposite Justin Houston after totaling 13 tackles (11 solo) and two sacks during an injury-shortened 2017 season that saw him play just six contests. Only a season removed from a 10-sack campaign in 2016, Ford could be in line for another big output in 2018 if he can stay healthy.

Chiefs' Dee Ford: Feeling 'excellent' in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (back) said Tuesday he feels "excellent," Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.

Ford's positive attitude during Tuesday's press conference essentially confirms the report from last month that the linebacker expected to be 100 percent healthy at the start of Kansas City's OTAs. With that, the expectation is that Ford will be fully ready for the start of the regular season as well as he looks to make a major comeback in a contract year.

Chiefs' Dee Ford: Expected back for OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ford (back) should be 100 percent for the start of OTAs, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Ford was placed on injured reserve in early December after his back issues continued to linger without significantly improving. Despite the injury, the Chiefs decided to hang on to the 26-year-old linebacker following news that the offseason has allowed him to heal up. The departure of veteran Tamba Hali also means Ford should finally receive free rein on the edge opposite Justin Houston in 2018. Ford hopes to remain healthy and return to the form that resulted in 10 sacks in 2016.
