Coach Andy Reid confirmed Friday that Clark will report to the start of training camp, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
Frank is facing two felony charges related to a June arrest. While the veteran's legal situation plays out, he will be eligible to participate in training camp activities alongside teammates. However, it remains possible that Clark will be forced to miss time this season, so his situation warrants monitoring.
Clark was charged Friday in Los Angeles with one felony count of possession of an assault weapon, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.
Clark was arrested and charged in June for felony illegal possession of a firearm. This is a new charge related to a March arrest. His arraignment is set for July 14. Clark signed a five-year, $105.5 million contract in April 2019, and he's accrued 66 tackles, 14 sacks, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries over 29 regular-season contests. It's presently unclear how his current legal situation will impact his status for the 2021 season.
Clark was arrested and charged Sunday in Los Angeles with felony illegal possession of a firearm, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.
Clark was booked following a traffic stop and later released on bond Monday afternoon. After the Chiefs acquired him via a trade with the Seahawks in April 2019, they reached an agreement on a five-year, $105.5 million contract. In two years since the move, Clark has racked up 66 tackles, 14 sacks, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and one interception in 29 regular-season games. It remains to be seen if his current legal troubles will impact his ability to suit up during the 2021 campaign.
Clark compiled six sacks and 29 tackles (21 solo) over 15 games during the 2020 regular season.
Clark started the season hot with three sacks in the first four games but managed just one total between Weeks 5 and 13. Fortunately, the veteran found his second wind down the stretch and added a pair of sacks over the final three games to carry him into the postseason. Clark remains under contract for the next three seasons.
Clark posted two solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's 17-14 win over the Falcons.
Clark shook off an illness to play in Sunday's game. He handled his typical snap count and sacked Matt Ryan once to reach six sacks through 15 games. Clark now has 14 sacks through two seasons in Kansas City.
Clark (illness) is active for Sunday's game versus the Falcons, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports.
Clark will start at defensive end and look to pressure Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan. The sixth-year pro has produced 27 tackles and five sacks through 14 games this season.
Clark (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
The 27-year-old was added to the injury report with the illness Thursday, and coach Andy Reid indicated he expects the defensive end to play Sunday. Clark has only seven tackles and one sack over his past five games.
Clark (illness) was a non-participant during the Chiefs' practice session Thursday.
Clark faced no limitations during Wednesday's practice, but he's now surfaced with an issue three days prior to the team's Week 16 matchup. The two-time Pro Bowler has been able to avoid a missed game all season, and he's sat out a total of just four contests over six professional campaigns. If he's unable to face the Falcons, Tim Ward or Alex Okafor would be the top candidates to fill in at the veteran's defensive end spot.
Clark made two tackles (one solo) and a sack in Sunday's 33-31 win over the Panthers.
Clark battled a knee injury all week but showed no ill effects during the game, recording an 86 percent snap share and his fourth sack of the year. The 27-year-old defensive end has never been consistent in the tackle column, but he offers fantasy mangers upside on a weekly basis due to his pass-rushing ability.
Clark (knee) will play in Sunday's game against the Panthers.
It was reported earlier Sunday that Clark was expected to suit up in the contest despite never logging full practice time, so this is good news for the Chiefs pass rush. Expect the veteran to handle his normal snap count, as he's racked up three sacks and a fumble recovery through the first eight games of the campaign.
Clark (knee), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Clark never practiced fully this week while managing the knee injury, but he was at least able to get some limited activity in Thursday and Friday. Assuming he doesn't experience any setbacks while warming up or during the contest, Clark should start and handle his usual snap count. The defensive end has tallied 18 tackles, three sacks and a fumble recovery through the Chiefs' first eight games.
Clark (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Panthers.
Clark's knee swelled up following last week's win over the Jets, but he was able to log two straight limited practices to close out the week. That bodes well for his chances to play, although he'll likely be closely monitored over the weekend. The 27-year-old defensive end has produced three sacks and 16 quarterback pressures through eight games, so any replacement would be a steep downgrade to the Chiefs' pass rush. Mike Danna and Taco Charlton are the top candidates to step in if Clark can't go.
Clark (knee) did not practice Wednesday, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports.
Clark is dealing with swelling in his knee, but he'll still have two more chances to resume practicing before the Chiefs have to tag him with an injury designation for Week 9. He'll look to break his four-game streak without a sack if cleared to face Carolina on Sunday.
Clark recorded four tackles (all solo) and a sack across 61 defensive snaps in Monday's win over the Patriots.
With Chris Jones (groin) sidelined for Monday's game, Clark stepped up as the leader on the defensive line, trailing only Tanoh Kpassagnon for reps in the contest among the unit. Clark now has three sacks on the season, a trend he'll look to maintain Sunday against the Raiders.
Clark notched a sack with his only tackle Monday versus the Ravens.
Clark has now recorded two sacks through the first three contests, but it may not be enough to put him on the IDP radar in many formats due to a lack of tallies in other categories. Through the first three weeks, Clark has just six total tackles (four solo), and it seems unlikely that will balloon much given that he tallied just 37 over 14 games last season. However, Clark still remains an option in leagues that only count sacks.
Clark (illness) was a full participant during Thursday's practice.
Clark was forced to leave last Sunday's game against the Chargers with the illness, but as evidenced by this news, he appears to have gotten over the ailment. Now healthy, expect Clark to handle his usual starting role at defensive end for Monday's game against Baltimore.
Clark is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Chargers due to an illness.
Clark notched two tackles (one solo) before leaving the field. As long as he's sidelined, Taco Charlton and Michael Danna figure to see increased opportunities.
Clark recorded three tackles (two solo) and one sack during Thursday's 34-20 win over the Chiefs.
Clark and Chris Jones (1.5 sacks) combined to overwhelm Houston's offensive front, providing consistent pressure despite the mobility of Deshaun Watson. Coming off such a convincing performance against Texans tackle Tytus Howard, Clark looks to be in good position to make an impact Week 2 versus the Chargers.
Clark tallied 37 tackles (27 solo), eight sacks and one interception over 14 regular-season games in 2019.
While Clark's raw numbers slightly declined from what he posted during his final season in Seattle in 2018, a pair of missed games in the middle of the season can account for some of that. Clark did see a notable drop-off in his ability to get the quarterback on the ground, falling five sacks short of the career-best 13 he tallied in 2018. However, he was a force down the stretch and in the playoffs, registering seven sacks from Week 16 through the postseason. Clark should resume his pass-rushing duties in 2020.
Clark (illness/shoulder) is active for Sunday's contest against the Broncos, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.
Clark spent the week recovering from a stomach virus and shoulder injury. He'll suit up Sunday despite officially being listed as questionable, but it remains to be seen whether the 26-year-old pass rusher will be limited in any capacity. Clark played just 55 percent and 46 percent of snaps on defense in the last two contests.
