Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Considered questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nnadi (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

Nnadi suffered a knee injury during the practice week and sat out Friday's session. The third-year defensive tackle is in danger of missing the first game of his NFL career. He has 47 tackles through 15 games this year, one stop shy of tying last year's career high in the category.

Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nnadi (ankle) practiced in full Tuesday.

Nnadi was limited by an ankle injury Tuesday, but he's now resumed participating in practice without restrictions. He'll draw his usual start at defensive tackle during Thursday's regular-season debut against the Texans, barring any setbacks.

Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Limited Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nnadi (ankle) was a limited participant in Monday's practice.

Nnadi will have two more opportunities to up his level of practice participation ahead of Thursday's season opener against the Texans. In the event that the starting defensive tackle is in any way limited Week 1, Khalen Saunders would stand to handle increased snaps.

Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Improves in sophomore campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nnadi racked up 48 tackles (18 solo), a sack, an interception and a forced fumble during his 16-game 2019 campaign.

Nnadi's improved production in his second professional season corresponded with an increase of more than 150 snaps recorded. With Chris Jones a candidate to hit free agency this offseason, there's a chance that Nnadi could slide into an even more prominent role on the defensive line next season. However, there's a good chance the Chiefs will extend Jones, which would likely result in a similar role for Nnadi next season.

Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Grabs first career interception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nnadi recorded one assisted tackle and an interception in Monday night's win over the Chargers.

The play was more of a sack-fumble, but the ball fell from Philip Rivers' hand directly into Nnadi's and was ruled an interception. The 23-year-old is up to 38 tackles (15 solo) on the year.

Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Practices fully Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nnadi (elbow) was a full participant at Tuesday's practice, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

Nnadi was a limited participant Monday but his return to full participation puts him on track to play Thursday. The 23-year-old has 26 tackles (11 solo) with one sack and one forced fumble as he's played about 80 percent of the snaps in the last two games.

Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Dealing with elbow injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nnadi (elbow) was a limited participant in Monday's practice estimate.

Nnadi didn't appear bothered by anything during this past Sunday's game against the Texans, as he played a career-high 76 defensive snaps. Still, his elbow will be closely monitored during this week's practices leading up to Thursday's game against the Broncos.

Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Sack in Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nnadi recorded eight tackles (five solo), a sack and a forced fumble across 40 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Lions.

Nnadi only played in about half of the defensive snaps Sunday but made his presence felt throughout the contest, as he was tied for the team lead in tackles. The game also marked his first career sack, one which caused a Matthew Stafford fumble early in the third quarter.

Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Full participant Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nnadi (concussion) was a full participant during Tuesday's practice, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Nnadi left Week 17's contest versus the Raiders with a concussion, but after a week off, it seems he will be ready to face the Colts on Saturday. He'll likely continue to back up Xavier Williams.

Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Ruled out with concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nnadi is ruled out to return to Sunday's game against the Raiders with a concussion, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports.

As long as Nnadi remains in the the league-mandated concussion protocol, Justin Hamilton will benefit from a slight uptick in defensive snaps.

Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Evaluated for concussion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nnadi exited Sunday's game against the Raiders and is being evaluated for a concussion.

Nnadi has served a rotational role in Kansas City's defensive line all season. If the rookie third-round pick were to enter the league-mandated concussion protocol, Justin Hamilton could benefit from an uptick in snaps.

Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Plays in Friday preseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nnadi (elbow) played 28 snaps on defense during Friday's preseason game against the Falcons, racking up three tackles and a sack.

A third-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, Nnadi likely has some leash to make the 53-man roster during his rookie season. His production against the Falcons certainly helps his chances, and he could have a decent opportunity to rotate in on the defensive line as a rookie.
