Marcus Kemp: Back down to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp reverted to the Chiefs' practice squad after being activated for Sunday's 35-9 win against the Jets, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Kemp played 19 special-teams snaps along with 12 offensive snaps for the Chiefs' high-powered attack, though he was unable to make any notable contributions on the stat sheet. The Hawaii product has already suited up in seven games for the defending champions this season, meaning he very well may be right back up to the active roster for a Week 9 home test against Carolina.

Colts' Marcus Kemp: Rises to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs elevated Kemp to the active roster Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Kemp was elevated for last week's blowout win over the Broncos and recorded an 11-yard reception on his lone target. Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is still out of the lineup, and since Sunday's game against the Jets could get out of hand quickly, Kemp may garner some garbage-time reps.

Marcus Kemp: Drops back to practice roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp reverted to the Chiefs' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Kemp logged his first offensive snaps of the season Sunday against the Broncos and caught his lone target for 11 yards in the blowout win. He may be elevated again Week 8 against the Jets depending on whether Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is available.

Chiefs' Marcus Kemp: Elevates to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs elevated Kemp to the active roster Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Kemp was elevated to the active roster last week with Sammy Watkins (hamstring) out, so he'll get the call again with Watkins sidelined for Week 7. The 25-year-old has yet to see a snap on offense this season, seeing all of his 55 snaps on special teams.

Marcus Kemp: Returns to practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp reverted to Kansas City's practice squad Tuesday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

The 25-year-old served as an extra player for Monday's win over the Bills and played a pair of offensive snaps. Sammy Watkins (hamstring) was unavailable, so there would likely need to be another injury to the receiving corps for Kemp to have a chance of rejoining the active roster and being a factor on offense.

Marcus Kemp: Reverts back to Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp signed with the Chiefs' practice squad Thursday, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

Kemp was cut by the Chiefs on Tuesday, however, he'll return to the team with another shot to make the 53-man roster. The 25-year-old suited up for all 16 games with the Chiefs in 2018, logging two targets the entire season.

Marcus Kemp: Let go by Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs waived Kemp on Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Kemp has only played on special teams through four games, and the Chiefs decided he was expendable. If the Hawaii product clears waivers, he could return to the Chiefs' practice squad.

Chiefs' Marcus Kemp: Rejoins Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs re-signed Kemp on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Kemp is fully healthy after having missed all of 2019 due to a torn ACL and MCL, so he'll be ready to compete for a special-teams role with his former team. The 25-year-old suited up for all 16 games with the Chiefs in 2018, during which span he was targeted twice.

Marcus Kemp: Becomes free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs won't tender Kemp (knee), making him an unrestricted free agent, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports.

The 24-year-old didn't see game action in 2019 after he suffered a torn ACL and MCL during training camp. Kemp suited up in all 16 games for the Chiefs in 2018, though, playing in 299 special-teams snaps. If healthy, Kemp will have a few suitors for his services, but he'll likely vie for a depth role in 2020.

Chiefs' Marcus Kemp: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs officially placed Kemp (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.

Kemp suffered a torn ACL and MCL at practice over the weekend, so this move was just a matter of time. The 24-year-old pass catcher suited up for all 16 games in Kansas City last year but was considered a fringe-roster player heading into 2019. He will now be forced to focus on his recovery.

Chiefs' Marcus Kemp: Out with torn ACL and MCL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp will miss the 2019 season after tests showed he suffered a torn ACL and MCL in his knee during Saturday's preseason game, the Kansas City Star reports.

Kemp was having a strong preseason and looked like he'd win a spot on the active roster.

Chiefs' Marcus Kemp: Facing MRI on knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Andy Reid said Kemp sprained his knee during Saturday's preseason loss in Pittsburgh and will undergo an MRI, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

The MRI will determine the extent of any ligament damage in Kemp's knee, but it appears the third-year wideout could be facing an absence of some sort. Clearly, such a development would hurt his chances of landing one of the final spots on the Chiefs' WR depth chart.

Chiefs' Marcus Kemp: Picks up knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp won't return to Saturday's preseason game at Pittsburgh due to a knee injury, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

Despite the impending threat of a big hit over the middle from a Steelers defender, Kemp hauled in a 27-yarder before getting crunched and immediately went to the sideline. He's in contention for one of the final spots on the Chiefs' wide receiver depth chart, so an injury at the midpoint of exhibition season doesn't help his cause.

Chiefs' Marcus Kemp: Posting solid camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp continues to have a strong camp for the Chiefs, Matt Derrick of Chiefs Digest reports.

Kemp likely would require an outbreak of injuries or illnesses for Kemp to find himself in a fantasy-relevant spot, but even making the roster for a high-powered Chiefs offense could eventually pay dividends. He still has a number of wideouts to beat out, but Kemp has positioned himself well again early on.

Chiefs' Marcus Kemp: Stays with Chiefs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp signed his tender with the Chiefs on Tuesday, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Kemp was active for all 16 regular-season games in 2018, logging 36 snaps on offense and 299 on special teams. He might have a shot at the No. 4 wide receiver job after the Chiefs lost Chris Conley earlier this offseason, but it's more likely Kemp sticks in his familiar role on the kick-coverage and return units.

Chiefs' Marcus Kemp: Special teams contributor in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Although Kemp appeared in all 16 regular-season games for the Chiefs in 2018, nearly all of his work came on special teams.

Kemp hauled in just one pass for seven yards on two targets throughout the campaign and played more than three offensive snaps in a game just twice all season. The second-year wideout did take the field on special teams to the tune of 299 snaps, but he's far from a lock to be on the Chiefs' 53-man roster next season, despite being an exclusive rights free agent.

Chiefs' Marcus Kemp: Lands depth receiver role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp has made the Chiefs' 53-man roster, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.

Kemp earned a promotion to the 53-man roster in October of last season, his rookie year, which likely earned him good favor in his bid for a 53-man roster spot. He should serve as a depth option at wide receiver again in 2018 and could contribute on special teams as well.

Chiefs' Marcus Kemp: Receives some first-team reps in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp (ankle) mixed in with the first team a few times during practice Tuesday, Matt Derrick of Chiefs Digest reports.

Kemp had been sidelined by an ankle issue during practice last week, but it looks as though he's returned to the fold in short order. He's expected to challenge for a depth role again in 2018, though he only appeared in one game for the Chiefs last season.

Chiefs' Marcus Kemp: Sitting with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp was not participating at Chiefs' training camp Thursday due to an undisclosed injury, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Kemp was not wearing pads as players began warming up and headed straight for the trainer's tent. The 22-year-old had previously been dealing with an ankle injury, but the specifics and severity of this injury are currently unknown.

January 2, 2018 10:48 PM
Chiefs' Marcus Kemp: Signed from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kemp was added from the practice squad to the 53-man roster Tuesday, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Kemp will provide the Chiefs with some depth at the wide receiver position during the postseason following the news that De'Anthony Thomas (lower leg) has hit injured reserve. However, his role likely will be limited to special teams barring multiple injuries at the position.
