Lucas signed his restricted free agent tender Monday, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.
Lucas will receive just over $2 million for 2019 and have the chance to become an unrestricted free agent next offseason. The 25-year-old safety accumulated 32 tackles, one sack and one interception across 16 games with the Chiefs in 2018.
Lucas injured his shoulder during the team's season finale contest against the Raiders, though it seems he'll be ready to go versus the Colts in the AFC divisional round. The third-year safety has complied 32 tackles and one interception this season.
Lucas is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Raiders due to a neck injury.
Lucas sustained a neck injury late in the first half of Sunday's regular-season finale. If the third-year pro is unable to retake the field, expect Eric Murray to serve as the top backup to starting free safety Ron Parker.
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.
