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.
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.
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.
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.
