Breeland was solid when he was healthy in 2018, making 20 tackles (16 solo) and two interceptions in seven games. The 27-year-old will hope to provide a boost to a Chiefs defense that ranked 31st in passing yards against per game (273.4) last season.
Breeland had a rough 2018 from a health standpoint, but he gave the Packers a boost once he was ready to play in November, starting five games for the team the rest of the way. He will be a free agent this offseason, but he told packersnews.com in December the Packers have "first dibs" on his services.
Breeland (groin) will play in Sunday's game versus the Bears, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
Breeland snagged his second interception of the season in Week 14's game against the Falcons and ran it back for a touchdown. He has a good chance to force another turnover against Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, who has thrown 12 picks in 11 games.
Breeland (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Bears, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Breeland has suited up in four games for the Packers this year, making 14 tackles, three pass breakups and a pick-six as his abilities in coverage have helped slow down strong passing attacks. If Breeland can't shake his injury, undrafted rookie Tony Brown will see a sizable workload.
Breeland (personal) returned to the team in Green Bay on Friday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Breeland was away from the team the last few days as he deals with the death of someone close to him. The 26-year-old is expected to be available for Sunday's game at Chicago but he could still carry an injury designation.
