Kpassagnon notched five tackles (three solo) and one sack during Sunday's 40-9 win over the Raiders.
Kpassagnon now has four sacks on the season. The 25-year-old is playing a key role in Kansas City's pass rush -- he's played over 70 percent of snaps in six straight games -- and he looks set for a similar workload in New England on Sunday.
Kpassagnon and Emmanuel Ogbah are Kansas City's only active defensive ends for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.
The 25-year-old had a pair of sacks in Week 8 and will have a great chance to add to his sack total versus Minnesota this week. Kpassagnon played 74 percent of defensive snaps last Sunday -- with Okafor still starting -- so he could be in line for an every-down role in Week 9.
Kpassagnon (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.
Kpassagnon missed Kansas City's loss to the Patriots in Week 6 due to an ankle injury but appears to have fully recovered. With Justin Houston (hamstring) inactive, Kpassagnon will slot into the starting defensive lineup.

Kpassagnon was seen warming up prior to Sunday's game, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports, but they ultimately decided that the linebacker was not healthy enough to give it a go against New England.

Kpassagnon (ankle) was a limited participant in Friday's practice and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Kpassagnon left Sunday's game against the Jaguars with the ankle injury and was unable to return. Friday was the only day the linebacker was able to put any work into practice, so he will likely end up being a game-time decision in New England.
Kpassagnon is questionable to return to Sunday's game with an ankle injury.
Kpassagnon is used mostly as a specialist so his potential absence should only hurt the Chiefs in specific interest areas. It remains to be seen whether he'll be able to return to the contest. In the event that he's not able to, look for Breeland Speaks to step in where needed.
Kpassagnon returned to practice Monday after recently dealing with a minor heel injury, ArrowheadPride.com reports.
Kpassagnon had missed a brief portion of training camp due to the heel injury, but he was back in pads Monday and figures to be available for the Chiefs' preseason opener against the Texans on Thursday.
Kpassagnon racked up six tackles (four solo) and three tackles for loss, including two sacks, during Sunday's Week 17 game against the Broncos.
Kpassagnon made the most of his expanded role Sunday by bringing down the quarterback on two different occasions. He remains bound to the Chiefs through the 2020 season, but he is unlikely to see a consistent role in the defense barring injuries at outside linebacker. However, Kpassagnon should continue to provide depth on the outside and assist on special teams.
Kpassagnon (shin) led all Chiefs defensive linemen with 49 snaps in Friday's preseason game against the 49ers.
Kpassagnon had been dealing with shin splints, so a return to health and preseason game action bodes well as he competes for meaningful snaps.
Kpassagnon sat out of Chiefs' practice Tuesday with shin splints, Matt McMullen of the team's official site reports.
The 2017 second-round pick should be able to earn himself a credible backup position in the Chiefs' 3-4 defense. Shin splints are difficult to deal with and are often recurring, so expect Kansas City to proceed with caution.
The Chiefs selected Kpassagnon in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 59th overall.
At 6-foot-7, 289 pounds, Kpassagnon is a massive lineman who figures to work as an end in Kansas City's three-man fronts. With 35 and 5/8-inch arms and a 128-inch broad jump, Kpassagnon has a freakish combination of length and linear explosiveness.
