Lucas earned another start after a strong Week 6 performance, in which the third-year pro played all 78 offensive snaps and made 10 tackles. Expect Lucas to see quite a bit of action against Cincinnati's explosive air attack.
Lucas made 10 tackles (four solo) and one pass breakup while playing all 78 defensive snaps in Sunday's 43-40 loss to the Patriots.
Lucas drew the start while Eric Berry (heel) and Eric Murray (lower leg) were inactive. He posted his second straight solid outing, as Lucas had also snagged an interception in Week 5. If Berry and Murray continue to sit out, expect Lucas to start again in Week 7 against the Bengals.
The 2016 sixth-round pick out of Penn State joins the Chiefs' 53-man roster after spending much of his 2017 campaign on special teams for the Dolphins. He'll also provide depth at cornerback behind Steven Nelson and Kendall Fuller.
Lucas is expected to serve as a depth cornerback should he stick on Miami's roster throughout the 2018 campaign. Entering his third season with the Dolphins, Lucas has appeared in 19 games and tallied just eight combined tackles.
Lucas finished the 2017 season with six tackles in 11 games.
Lucas was the sixth-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft by Miami but has played sparingly in his two years with the club. He has been used as a depth cornerback and special teams player, a role that isn't likely to change should he remain with the team next season.
