Coach Andy Reid said that Duvernay-Tardif (lower leg) could return from injured reserve this season, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.
Duvernay-Tardif landed on injured reserve after suffering a fractured leg on Oct. 7, and has reportedly progressed well in his recovery. Coach Andy Reid said that Duvernay-Tardif could potentially return from IR in mid December, which would allow the starting guard to retake the field with ample time for the Chiefs' expected playoff run.
Dunvernay-Tardif (lower leg) is expected to have his cast removed Monday, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.
Dunvernay-Tardif continues to progress in his recovery from a fractured left leg sustained in Week 5. The Chiefs are reportedly optimistic about the starting guard's chances of returning at some point this season. Expect an update on Dunvernay-Tardif's recovery timetable after his injury is evaluated Monday.
Duvernay-Tardif (lower leg) still has a chance to return in 2018, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
After Duvernay-Tardif was diagnosed with a broken left fibula sustained in the Chiefs' Week 5 matchup with the Jaguars, he complained of pain in his ankle. An MRI revealed that he sustained a maisonneuve fracture, meaning that he tore ligaments in his ankle along with the broken fibula. Regardless, head coach Andy Reid believes there is still a chance Duvernay-Tardif can return this season.
Duvernay-Tardif, the Chiefs' starting right guard and one of the NFL's better interior linemen, sustained a fractured left fibula in Sunday's 30-14 win over the Jaguars. While the move to IR will require him to miss the next eight weeks, the Chiefs anticipate that Duvernay-Tardif's recovery timeline will allow him to return from IR before the end of the season. He'll be a leading candidate for one of the Chiefs' two designated-to-return spots. Jordan Devey and Andrew Wylie are likely to act as the primary replacements while Duvernay-Tardif is sidelined.

Duvernay-Tardif suffered a significant injury during the Chief's Week 5 win but is expected to return later in the season. Cam Erving nonetheless stands to slot into the starting lineup in replacement of Duvernay-Tardif for a substantial amount of time while the right guard remains sidelined.
