Chiefs' Tanoh Kpassagnon: Notches four sacks in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kpassagnon racked up 29 tackles (21 solo), four sacks, two defended passes and one forced fumble (which he recovered) across 16 regular-season games in 2019.

Kpassagnon set career-high marks across the board in 2019, elevating above a reserve role for the first time since being selected by Kansas City in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He played at least 70 percent of snaps on defense in nine of the Chiefs' final 10 regular-season tilts, and throughout the team's postseason run. In three playoff appearances, Kpassagnon notched five tackles (three solo) and two sacks.

Chiefs' Tanoh Kpassagnon: Returns to sack column
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chiefs' Tanoh Kpassagnon: Primed for heavy workload
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chiefs' Tanoh Kpassagnon: Active for Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chiefs' Tanoh Kpassagnon: Questionable for Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kpassagnon (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Kpassagnon was limited in Friday's practice after participating fully to begin the week. With Justin Houston (hamstring) listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Kpassagnon could be in line for a large defensive role if he's healthy enough to suit up.

Chiefs' Tanoh Kpassagnon: Practices Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kpassagnon (ankle) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Kpassagnon sat out Sunday's loss to the Patriots due to an ankle injury but appears to have fully recovered. The rotational linebacker appears on track to play against the Bengals in Week 7.

Chiefs' Tanoh Kpassagnon: Will not play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kpassagnon (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Patriots, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

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. With Justin Houston (hamstring) also out, Frank Zombo is in line to see plenty of additional work at outside linebacker.

Chiefs' Tanoh Kpassagnon: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chiefs' Tanoh Kpassagnon: Injures ankle, questionable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chiefs' Tanoh Kpassagnon: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chiefs' Tanoh Kpassagnon: Tallies two sacks in Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chiefs' Tanoh Kpassagnon: Returns to game action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chiefs' Tanoh Kpassagnon: Suffering from shin splints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Chiefs' Tanoh Kpassagnon: Picked by Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
