Pringle didn't catch a pass Sunday versus the Broncos but did return a kickoff 102 yards for a touchdown.
Pringle used the snowy field in Denver to his advantage, making a quick cut that left two Broncos defenders in the dust as he sped past the kicker to take it the distance. He also found his way onto the field for 61 percent of the snaps, ranking third among wideouts ahead of Mecole Hardman. Unfortunately, he didn't draw a target on the day and figures to see his role reduced in the coming weeks once Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is given the green light to return.
Pringle snared both of his targets for 46 yards Monday versus the Bills.
Pringle saw a jump in his playing time with Sammy Watkins (hamstring) sidelined Monday, playing 38 percent of the offensive snaps after playing no more than 14 percent in any previous contest. He could continue to see boosted snap counts until Watkins is cleared to return but remains low enough in the pecking order for targets to remain off the fantasy radar in most formats.
Pringle is in the lead for a starting gunner spot on special teams, Matt Derrick of Chiefs Digest reports.
Pringle's contributions on special teams could be a key factor in landing him a roster spot for the Chiefs yet again as wide receiver depth. Based on his positioning as a starting gunner, he looks to be in a good spot to keep a job on the 53-man roster.
Pringle (hamstring) returned to practice Friday, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports.
Pringle stayed off the field for nearly an entire week, but he's back in action preparing to defend the Super Bowl title. The 26-year-old wideout is slated as the team's No. 5 wide receiver, and he'll make most of his contributions on special teams.
Pringle was absent from Saturday's practice due to a hamstring issue, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.
This is the first news regarding a hamstring issue for Pringle and the severity is not known at this time. When healthy, he is expected to primarily provide depth at wide receiver. The 26-year-old hauled in 19 passes for 170 yards and a touchdown in 2019.
Pringle reeled in 12 of his 16 targets for 170 yards and a touchdown during the 2019 season.
More than half of Pringle's production came in Week 5 versus the Colts, when he logged a season-high 49 offensive snaps and hauled in six passes for 104 yards and his first and only NFL touchdown to date. He remains under contract through the 2020 season, but Pringle has no money guaranteed, potentially forcing him to lay claim to his roster spot in camp again. He should have a leg up this time around with a full year on the roster under his belt.
Pringle caught his only target for a 14-yard gain during Sunday's 23-16 win over New England.
Pringle's reception came on his only offensive snap of the game. The young WR has single-digit or no offensive snaps in five of his last six games and has just two catches for 23 yards during that span. He's a long way from Week 5's six-catch outing and should not be on your fantasy radar -- especially with Patrick Mahomes (hand) dinged up, the rest of the Chiefs' receiving corps healthy and Denver's sixth-ranked pass defense coming to town Sunday.
Pringle caught his only target of Monday's 24-17 win over the Chargers for a nine-yard gain.
Monday's reception ended a four-game catchless streak for Pringle, who still has more catches in Week 5 (six) than the rest of the season combined (five). He had just three offensive snaps total in the three games leading into Monday after the Chiefs' receiving corps returned to health, but he managed to reach 11 offensive snaps against the Chargers largely because Tyreek Hill (hamstring) made an early exit. If Hill's injury is still a factor after the team's Week 12 bye, Pringle's role on offense could expand when the Chiefs take on the Raiders' 27th-ranked pass defense.
Pringle recorded two catches on three targets for 24 yards Sunday against the Texans.
Pringle's snap count dropped from 78 percent to just 59 percent in Week 6. It's likely the result of Tyreek Hill's (shoulder) return from injury. That role will likely diminish further as Hill's playing time is scaled up and Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is healthy enough to go, moving Pringle out of the fantasy limelight once again.
Pringle had six catches (nine targets) for 103 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 19-13 loss to the Colts.
Sammy Watkins (hamstring) was knocked out of the contest early in the first quarter, opening the door for Pringle to see significant snaps for the first time this year (12 total offensive snaps through the Chiefs' first four games). The 25-year-old surprisingly outpaced both Demarcus Robinson and Mecole Hardman in targets and production. The severity of Watkins' injury is unknown, but even if both he and Tyreek Hill (shoulder) are unable to suit up against the Texans on Sunday, Pringle figures to remain behind the aforementioned Robinson and Hardman on the depth chart.
Pringle caught a 13-yard pass and returned two kicks for 41 total yards during Sunday's 34-30 win over the Lions.
Pringle came up clutch Sunday, catching a short pass underneath from Patrick Mahomes during the Chiefs' game-winning drive and taking it 13 yards to the Detroit 3, setting up a Darrel Williams touchdown run two plays later. It was a nice play in a big moment, but the fact that it was his only target should create pause. Tyreek Hill's (shoulder) return in the coming weeks should only reduce Pringle's role in the offense in the near future, though he may stick around on game days as a returner. Next up is a Colts defense that has done well to limit opponents' big plays in the passing game this season
Pringle caught his only target for a seven-yard gain during Sunday's 33-28 win over the Ravens.
Pringle caught his first career pass in the final minutes of the third quarter, helping set up a LeSean McCoy touchdown. Pringle just recently got called up to the active roster, and though it seems like every member of the Kansas City offense is a plug-and-play stud, he's still too far down the totem pole to warrant interest.
The Chiefs promoted Pringle to the active roster Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Pringle was just cut by the Chiefs on Tuesday and relegated to their practice squad, but he'll be back with the team to add depth to its receiver corps since Tyreek Hill (neck) is out. Pringle only played three offensive snaps in the opener, and it's unlikely he plays a major role in the offense Week 2 versus the Raiders.
Kansas City waived Pringle on Tuesday, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports.
The news comes after Pringle logged just three offensive snaps and wasn't targeted in the Chiefs' season opener Sunday against Jacksonville. The 25-year-old's three snaps were the fourth-most amongst the Chiefs' healthy wideouts. Pringle showed some potential in training camp and was ultimately able to make Kansas City's 53-man roster, so he could quickly land somewhere else to provide depth for another squad's receiving corps.
Pringle wasn't targeted and logged only three offensive snaps in the season opener versus the Jaguars.
Pringle put together a strong offseason camp and made his way on to the 53-man roster, and his position on the depth chart will temporarily improve after Tyreek Hill (shoulder) was ruled out for multiple weeks. He still ranked fourth in the pecking order for snaps among the remaining healthy wideouts, leaving little in terms of upside from a fantasy standpoint at this juncture.
Pringle has caught coach Andy Reid's attention, Seth Keysor of The Athletic reports. "Pringle is doing a nice job," Reid said. "His weight is down, you can tell that he's worked and is catching the ball great. He's plucking it - hands, not body stuff. We've been real happy with his production, and we know he's a tough kid."
Reid also mentioned that Pringle has been rotating in with the first-team offense, and ESPN.com's Adam Teicher identified the 25-year-old as the surprise standout of the Chiefs' offseason program. Pringle went undrafted out of Kansas State last year and spent his entire rookie season on injured reserve after suffering a hamstring injury in the final week of preseason. He now has a chance to earn snaps in a high-powered offense, as the Chiefs lost Chris Conley during the offseason and still aren't sure if/when Tyreek Hill will be available. The competition for playing time appears wide open behind oft-injured Sammy Watkins.
Pringle (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports.
Pringle came up with a hamstring injury during the Chiefs preseason finale. He is not a candidate for activation off IR and is done for the season, barring he reaches an injury settlement with the Chiefs.
Pringle left Thursday's preseason finale against the Packers with a hamstring injury.
Coach Andy Reid indicated Pringle hurt his hamstring "pretty good," Nate Taylor of The Athletic Kansas City reports, but beyond that the severity of the issue remains unclear. The 24-year-old signed as an undrafted free agent in May and was facing an uphill battle for a spot on the 53-man roster.
