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 special teams.
Kemp hauled in just one pass for seven yards on two targets throughout the campaign and he 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.
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.
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.
