Chiefs' Dorian O'Daniel: Activated from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Daniel (ankle) was activated from the Chiefs' injured reserve list Saturday.

After missing the past five regular-season games because of an ankle injury, O'Daniel has been cleared in time to return to his special-teams role for Sunday's AFC divisional-round game against the Browns. The 2018 third-round pick has tallied nine tackles (seven solo) and one sack through 11 games in the 2020 campaign.

Chiefs' Dorian O'Daniel: Chance to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Andy Reid says there's "a chance" O'Daniel (ankle) is activated from injured reserve ahead of Sunday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

O'Daniel has missed the last five regular-season games because of an ankle injury. The 2018 third-round pick will try to return to his special-teams role for Sunday's AFC divisional-round game against the Browns.

Chiefs' Dorian O'Daniel: Appears at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Daniel (ankle) was designated to return from injured reserve Wednesday, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

O'Daniel sat out the last four games due to a high-ankle sprain. He could return to action this week for the season finale against the Chargers. Depending on his health, O'Daniel -- who typically sticks to special teams -- could handle a significant defensive workload if the Chiefs opt to rest starters.

Chiefs' Dorian O'Daniel: Heads to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Daniel (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

O'Daniel can return in Week 16 for a matchup against the Falcons. The 2018 third-round pick has played almost exclusively on special teams this season, recording six tackles while covering punts and kicks.

Chiefs' Dorian O'Daniel: Out Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs have ruled O'Daniel (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

No surprise here, as O'Daniel was unable to participate in practice all week. He suffered an ankle injury in last week's victory over the Buccaneers. The 26-year-old will now set his sights on a potential Week 14 return against the Dolphins.

Chiefs' Dorian O'Daniel: To go on shelf
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Special teams coordinator Dave Toub said "it's going to take a minute" for O'Daniel to return from a high-ankle sprain, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.

This will make for a notable absence from the Chiefs special-teams unit, as O'Daniel had garnered over 70 percent of the snaps in that department over his first 10 appearances of the season. He was forced to exit in the first quarter of Kansas City's Week 12 win over the Buccaneers. Based on his coach's assessment, it appears he may be out for an extended period.

Chiefs' Dorian O'Daniel: Departs Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Daniel was forced out of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers with an ankle injury, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

O'Daniel exited in the first quarter. This is a key loss for the Chiefs' special-teams coverage, as O'Daniel leads the team with six special-teams tackles this year.

Chiefs' Dorian O'Daniel: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Daniel (knee/ankle) is available for Monday's matchup with the Ravens, Chiefs' content creator Matt McMullen of reports.

O'Daniel was added to the injury report Friday, but his full participation at Saturday's practice indicated he was trending in this directions. He has played just nine defensive snaps through two games, as he is primarily a special-teams contributor.

Chiefs' Dorian O'Daniel: Deemed questionable for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Daniel (knee/ankle) is questionable for Monday's game versus the Ravens.

O'Daniel landed on the injury report Friday, and although he practiced fully Saturday, his injury will be monitored up until game time. Through the first two games, O'Daniel has played just nine defensive snaps, so if he does suit up, most of his impact will come on special teams.

Chiefs' Dorian O'Daniel: Special-teams role in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Daniel had eight tackles (five solo) and one fumble recovery across 14 regular-season contests in 2019.

O'Daniel's primary contributions for Kansas City came on special teams, as he recorded 293 such snaps as opposed to only five snaps on defense. The 25-year-old will spend the offseason competing to retain a similar role for 2020.

Chiefs' Dorian O'Daniel: Set to return Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Daniel (hamstring) was a full practice participant Tuesday, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

O'Daniel missed the last two games due to the hamstring issue but is primed to return in Week 7. The 25-year-old has yet to play a defensive snap this year and should return to his role on special teams.

October 11, 2019 03:28 PM
Chiefs' Dorian O'Daniel: Out for Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Daniel (hamstring) will miss Sunday's game against the Texans, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

O'Daniel will sit out for a second consecutive week. The special teams contributor hasn't played a single defensive snap all season, so his absence is unlikely to have much impact.

October 4, 2019 02:40 PM
Chiefs' Dorian O'Daniel: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Daniel (hamstring) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Colts, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

O'Daniel didn't participate in practice this week, so he'll look to get healthy before Week 6's matchup with the Texans. The second-year pro has played strictly on special teams through the first four weeks.

Chiefs' Dorian O'Daniel: Will proceed with special teams role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Daniel will likely continue to play a crucial role on the Chiefs special team unit this season, Brooke Pryor of the Kansas City Star reports.

O'Daniel was on the field for over half of the special teams snaps in each game last season. The 24-year-old logged 292 snaps on special teams and 311 snaps on defense over 16 contests in his rookie season, recording 34 tackles (21 solo), a pass breakup and a fumble recovery. O'Daniel missed both of Kansas City's playoff games with an ankle injury, but that seems to be a long-forgotten issue.

Chiefs' Dorian O'Daniel: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Daniel (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Patriots, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

O'Daniel was unable to practice this week after sitting out last Sunday's divisional-round win over the Colts. Ben Niemann will likely be relied upon as a reserve inside linebacker in his absence.

Chiefs' Dorian O'Daniel: Absent from practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Daniel (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

O'Daniel sat out last week's divisional-round win over the Colts due to calf and ankle injuries and continues to be troubled by the latter issue. The rookie third-round pick may need to practice in some capacity this week to have any chance at suiting up for Sunday's AFC Championship Game versus the Patriots.

Chiefs' Dorian O'Daniel: Inactive Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs have listed O'Daniel (calf) as inactive for Saturday's AFC divisional-round contest against the Colts, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

O'Daniel was deemed doubtful heading into the weekend, so no surprise here. His absence figures to give Ben Niemann a slight increase in rotational snaps at linebacker.

January 11, 2019 09:40 AM
Chiefs' Dorian O'Daniel: Doubtful for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Daniel (calf/ankle) is officially listed as doubtful for Saturday's divisional-round playoff game against the Colts.

O'Daniel did not practice in any extent this week and thus appears to be trending towards missing his first game of the season. Ben Niemann should benefit from a slight uptick in rotational snaps if O'Daniel is unable to suit up versus Indianapolis.

Chiefs' Dorian O'Daniel: Sidelined Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Daniel was held out of Tuesday's practice due to calf and ankle injuries, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

O'Daniel saw a decent portion of snaps over the last half of the season while operating as a backup linebacker. There's no indication to this point that his injury is severe, but if he's forced to miss Saturday's divisional-round matchup with the Colts, it'll likely mean a much larger workload for fellow backup Ben Niemann. O'Daniels' ability to practice the rest of the week will give a better indication of his status for Saturday's game.

Chiefs' Dorian O'Daniel: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

O'Daniel (thumb) was seen in full pads during Saturday's practice, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports.

O'Daniel missed this entire week of practice after suffering a thumb injury, but he looks to be back to full health given his return Saturday. O'Daniel, who was selected with the 100th overall pick in the 2018 draft, is in line to play a reserve role at linebacker this season.
