Chiefs' Willie Gay: Back to full health
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gay (knee) said Thursday that he's back to 100 percent healthy, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.

The Mississippi State product underwent surgery Jan. 29 to repair a torn meniscus, so the fact that he is already back to full strength is a positive sign. Gay had a strong season in his first NFL campaign, recording 39 tackles (29 solo) and a sack while playing all 16 games. Now healthy, look for Gay to handle a starting role at linebacker for the Chiefs in 2021.

Chiefs' Willie Gay: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gay (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

The 23-year-old underwent surgery on a torn meniscus last week, so he already was ruled out for the Super Bowl. Gay should have plenty of time to recover in time for the 2021 season. Darius Harris should have an increased defensive role for the Chiefs in his absence.

Chiefs' Willie Gay: Out after meniscus surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gay (knee) has undergone surgery to address a torn meniscus and will miss the Super Bowl versus Tampa Bay, Nick Shook of NFL.com reports.

Gay is reportedly facing a four-month recovery timetable, which would put him on track for the start of the 2021 season and a fair amount of tentative offseason activities. The rookie second-round pick's absence should position Darius Harris for an increased role versus the Buccaneers in the Super Bowl.

Chiefs' Willie Gay: Ruled out again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gay (ankle) is ruled out for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Bills.

Gay still has yet to resume practicing since suffering an ankle injury against the Chargers in Week 17. Darius Harris stands to once again handle an increased defensive role with Gay sidelined.

Chiefs' Willie Gay: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gay (ankle) is ruled out for Sunday's AFC divisional-round matchup against the Browns, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.

Gay remains sidelined due to a left ankle sprain sustained during Kansas City's regular-season finale against the Chargers. With the rookie second-round pick out, Darius Harris could handle a substantial defensive role against the Browns.

Chiefs' Willie Gay: Nursing ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gay suffered a left ankle sprain during Sunday's 38-21 loss to the Chargers, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

Gay was quickly ruled out to return to Sunday's contest upon being injured, which could be a bad sign for the severity of the injury. With the Chiefs having secured a bye to begin the playoffs, however, the rookie second-round pick will at least benefit from an additional week to recover.

Chiefs' Willie Gay: Officially out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gay (leg) will not return to Sunday's game.

Gay is officially listed as out for Sunday's game against the Chargers. The extent of the linebacker's leg injury is still unknown, but it is likely Darius Harris will take over his duties. Gay has registered 38 tackles (28 solo) and one sack this season.

Chiefs' Willie Gay: Questionable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gay left Sunday's game due to a leg injury.

While the extent of issue is unclear at this time, Gay is questionable to return after getting injured at the end of the first quarter. It's unclear whether it was Gay's ankle or leg that was injured, but Darius Harris likely will take over Gay's linebacker duties if the 22-year-old is unable to return.

Chiefs' Willie Gay: Rings up nine stops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gay posted nine tackles and a forced fumble in Sunday's 17-14 win over the Falcons.

Gay logged season highs in tackles and defensive snaps (49), adding the first forced fumble of his career as well. The rookie second-round pick out of Mississippi State has been an inconsistent fantasy contributor this season with just 38 tackles over 15 games.

Chiefs' Willie Gay: Logs first career sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gay posted six tackles (five solo) and a sack in Sunday's 40-32 loss to the Raiders.

Gay played just 15 defensive snaps through the first three weeks, but the rookie second-rounder is getting comfortable at the NFL level and is receiving more work as a result. He logged a season-high 47 percent snap share Sunday and capitalized with his first career sack. Gay's usage stands to rise even more after that performance, so he could carve out fantasy utility in the near future.
