02/05/18DBEric BerryAchillesQUESTIONABLEBerry (Achilles) should be back for the beginning of the 2018 season, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.

Berry ruptured his Achilles against the Patriots in Week 1 last season but is already back running drills on the field, as a video posted by his agent Chad Speck shows. Barring any setbacks, the veteran safety should be available for OTAs this spring.

02/05/18WRChris ConleyAchillesQUESTIONABLEThe Chiefs officially placed Conley (Achilles) on injured reserve Saturday.

Conley ruptured his Achilles in Sunday's win over the Texans. The pass catcher had tallied 46 yards on three receptions before suffering the injury. He had not been a major part of the offense prior to going down, recording just 11 receptions for 175 yards and zero touchdowns in five games. Albert Wilson figures to see increased reps with Conley now on IR.

02/05/18LBDee FordBackQUESTIONABLEFord (back) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.

Ford has been dealing with back issues since the first month of the season and hasn't played in a game since Oct. 30. He'll finish the season with 11 tackles and two sacks, but should be back with Kansas City in 2018 after the Chiefs exercised his fifth-year player option earlier this year.

02/05/18DBPhillip GainesElbowQUESTIONABLEThe Chiefs placed Gaines (elbow) on injured reserve Wednesday, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

It sounds like the Chiefs weren't optimistic that Gaines would recover from the elbow injury he sustained in the Week 17 win over the Broncos in time for Saturday's wild-card matchup with the Titans, so Kansas City elected to shut him down for the season in order to a clear a roster spot. Defensive tackle Stefan Charles was signed in a corresponding move. Gaines finishes the 2017 campaign with 30 tackles (23 solo) and three pass breakups across 14 games.

02/05/18RBAkeem HuntAnkleQUESTIONABLEThe Chiefs placed Hunt (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday, Pete Sweeney of the team's official site reports.

Weeks 16 and 17 were tough ones for Hunt, who entered the latter with a shoulder injury only to leave it with an ankle issue. The toll from both seemingly won't allow Hunt to play again during the Chiefs' upcoming playoff run. No matter, Kareem Hunt is the lead back by a mile in Kansas City, so Charcandrick West (illness) and the recently re-signed C.J. Spiller likely won't see the field much, if at all, in the coming weeks.

02/05/18LBDadi NicolasKneeQUESTIONABLENicolas (knee) will open training camp on the Chiefs' physically unable to perform list, Sydney Ringdahl of Chiefs.com reports.

Nicolas hurt his knee in the final game of the regular season and required surgery Jan. 5. Coach Andy Reid suggested that Nicolas is in the latter stages of his rehab program and should be cleared to play for the start of the regular season. Nicolas is expected to serve in a depth capacity at linebacker in 2017.

02/05/18DBJordan SternsIllnessQUESTIONABLE (Updated 12/31/1969)
02/05/18DBSteven TerrellFingerQUESTIONABLETerrell underwent surgery Monday to repair a tendon, which was the result of a dislocated finger, Pete Sweeney of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Terrell presumably suffered the injury in Sunday's victory over the Raiders. The team placed him on injured reserve Monday. He mainly provided depth in the secondary, so the defensive rotation is unlikely to be affected by his absence going forward.

02/05/18WRDe'Anthony ThomasLower LegQUESTIONABLEThe Chiefs placed Thomas (lower leg) on injured reserve Tuesday, Pete Sweeney of the team's official site reports.

The transaction seems to confirm Thomas suffered a broken tibia during the regular-season finale. While Marcus Kemp has been promoted from the practice squad to bolster the back end of the receiving corps, the loss of Thomas and Akeem Hunt (ankle) to IR leaves a question mark on kickoff returns. Jehu Chesson may be the best candidate to fill that role with three such returns for 65 yards this season.

02/05/18RBSpencer WareKnee - PCLQUESTIONABLEThe Chiefs placed Ware (knee) on injured reserve Saturday. BJ Kissel of the team's official site reports.

With season-ending surgery expected on PCL and LCL tears in his right knee, Ware will yield the backfield to rookie Kareem Hunt in Week 1 and beyond. Additionally, C.J. Spiller's release Saturday leaves just one other true running back (Charcandrick West) on the roster, so Hunt appears in line to head a rushing attack that's much more balanced than most in the pass-happy NFL.

01/08/18DLChris JonesKnee - MCLQUESTIONABLEJones is questionable to return to Saturday's wild-card game against the Titans with a knee injury.

Jones limped off the field with the assistance of trainers early in the third quarter. Jarvis Jenkins is likely to step in at defensive end in Jones' absence, since Rakeem Nunez-Roches (ankle) is inactive Saturday.

01/08/18DLRakeem Nunez-RochesAnkleQUESTIONABLENunez-Roches (ankle) will not play in Saturday's wild-card tilt versus the Titans, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Nunez-Roches was listed as doubtful heading into the weekend, so his absence comes as no surprise. Jarvis Jenkins figures to see increased reps providing depth at defensive end as a result.

08/03/17DBKeith BaxterWristQUESTIONABLEBaxter (wrist) was placed on waivers by the Chiefs on Sunday.

Baxter underwent surgery after he injured his wrist in Thursday's practice, and the team didn't release a timetable for his recovery. It's appears likely that Baxter was given a long timetable by team doctors, and that's what ultimately led to him being waived.
