Position Listing
Austin Reiter
News
Reiter played 33 snaps in the Browns' preseason opener last Thursday.

Reiter ended last season on Injured Reserve after he tore his ACL, but he's since recovered and is looking to bounce back. He played in almost half of Cleveland's offensive snaps during the first preseason game and will likely be one of the team's top backups.

Eric Murray
News
Murray (ankle) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.

Murray's return to practice indicates he should be available Saturday against the Chargers. He will serve as a depth option in Kansas City's secondary behind starting strong safety Daniel Sorensen.

Alex Ellis
News
Ellis has earned a spot on the Chiefs' 53-man roster, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports.

Ellis will serve as the team's No. 2 tight end for the opener against the Chargers with Demetrius Harris suspended for the contest. It seems likely he will remain on the roster even when Harris gets back, but he will likely be a depth option at the position behind Harris and star tight end Travis Kelce.

Tejan Koroma
News
Koroma (knee) was waived/injured by the Chiefs on Sunday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The Chiefs scooped Jack Allen off waivers to fill the roster vacancy. Koroma is expected to clear waivers and return to the Chiefs' injured reserve.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Chase Litton
No Updates
Reggie Ragland
News
Ragland (knee) returned to practice Sunday.

Ragland opened up training camp on the non-football injury list after his knee swelled up, and he missed the first eight days of training camp as a result. The injury was never believed to be that serious, so Ragland should begin being a full participant in training camp this week.

Tyreek Hill
News
Hill hauled in five of six targets for 90 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 42-37 win over the Steelers.

Hill kept the good times rolling for Kansas City early in the fourth quarter, splitting two defenders for a 29-yard touchdown on a Patrick Mahomes dime. The Mahomes-Hill connection, featuring Mahomes' arm strength and Hill's speed, should terrify opposing defenses. Hill has three touchdowns and is averaging 21.6 yards per catch to start the season.

Jarvis Jenkins
News
Jenkins put pen to paper Wednesday on a two-year deal to remain with the Chiefs, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Jenkins slotted in as a reserve defensive end for the Chiefs in 2017, playing mainly when the regulars needed a breather. He should serve Kansas City in a similar role during 2018 with Allen Bailey, Chris Jones (knee) and Rakeem Nunez-Roches (ankle) all returning.

Dillon Gordon
News
Gordon (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Sunday, according to the league's official transaction log.

Gordon is out for the season due to an unspecified shoulder injury, and his placement on IR was nothing more than a formality.

Injury
Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Armani Watts
News
Watts (ankle) returned to Chiefs practice last Saturday, Matt McMullen of the team's official site reports.

The rookie fourth-round pick missed the first two days of training camp, and he'll need to capitalize on every opportunity to show he belongs. His 4.64 40-yard dash time is concerning for a safety, but Watts has impressive tackling ability, as he notched 87 tackles (10 for a loss) in his senior season at Texas A&M. Watts will have a chance to shoulder a hefty workload depending on how he progresses through preseason.

Josh Crockett
No Updates
Kahlil McKenzie
No Updates
Ron Parker
News
Parker recorded eight tackles (six solo), two passes defensed and one interception across 82 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

Parker signed a contract with the Falcons this offseason after spending the majority of his career with the Chiefs, but he was released by Atlanta during roster cuts. The Chiefs were quick to re-sign the veteran safety and it paid off, as Parker played every defensive down and secured a key interception off Philip Rivers in the third quarter of Sunday's victory.

De'Anthony Thomas
News
Thomas caught one pass on two targets Sunday against the Chargers, a shovel pass that resulted in a touchdown from one yard out.

Thomas only played seven snaps total on offense in the opener and doesn't figure to play a ton this season overall, but he remains a valuable depth option and special teams player for the Chiefs.

Damien Williams
News
Williams rushed only once for no gain and played just seven offensive snaps in Week 1 against the Chargers.

Williams is slated to be the No. 3 back for the Chiefs this season, but it appears that won't result in much playing time behind both Kareem Hunt and Spencer Ware. Williams has proven to be a capable replacement should either of the two backs suffer an injury.

Jordan Devey
News
Devey re-signed with the Chiefs on Saturday.

Although he originally made the Chiefs' 53-man roster, Devey was let go be the team Thursday. However, they have opted to re-sign him, and he once again figures to provide depth on the offensive line going forward.

Tremon Smith
No Updates
Tanoh Kpassagnon
News
Kpassagnon returned to practice Monday after recently dealing with a minor heel injury, ArrowheadPride.com reports.

Kpassagnon had missed a brief portion of training camp due to the heel injury, but he was back in pads Monday and figures to be available for the Chiefs' preseason opener against the Texans on Thursday.

Cameron Erving
News
Erving is listed as the starting left guard on the Chiefs' depth chart, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Despite not being listed as the starter, Erving opened up the season starting at left guard last Sunday against the Chargers.

Harrison Butker
News
Butker knocked home all five of his extra-point attempts and his only field-goal attempt in Week 1 against the Chargers.

Butker was among the league's top kickers in terms of fantasy during the 2017 season and, if Sunday's output is any indication, he may be headed for more of the same this season.

Kareem Hunt
News
Hunt rushed for 75 yards on 18 carries and added a five-yard touchdown catch during Sunday's 42-37

Patrick Mahomes found Hunt in the left flat early in the first quarter. Hunt did the rest, barreling through the Pittsburgh defense for the team's third score of the quarter. Hunt had himself a nice game Sunday, though fans might be concerned that he has not topped 20 touches in a game in either of the Chiefs' first two games after nine such outings in 2017. That might be early-season game planning or maybe a shift in Kansas City to a more big-play passing offense under Mahomes. Either way, Hunt's receiving ability should keep him as one of the league's most valuable backs.

Justin Hamilton
News
The Eagles promoted Hamilton from the practice squad to their active roster Saturday.

Hamilton, a second year defensive tackle out of Louisiana-Lafayette, is set to make his NFL debut Sunday against the Chargers. The Eagles are thin on the line with Fletcher Cox and Destiny Vaeao already ruled out, so Hamilton figures to see some rotational reps depending on game flow.

Leon III McQuay
News
McQuay (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, Brooke Pryor of the Kansas City Star reports.

McQuay has been sidelined since Saturday due to a minor hamstring injury, but was back in full pads Monday. With fellow free safety Daniel Sorensen (knee) out for at least the next six weeks, McQuay could find a role with the first-team defense if he's able to remain healthy.

Patrick Mahomes
News
Mahomes racked up 326 yards and six touchdowns on 23 of 28 passing during Sunday's 42-37 win over the Steelers. He added 18 yards on five carries.

Mahomes started red hot, finding Chris Conley and Travis Kelce up the seams for two early touchdowns. He showed that he is human by slowing off that otherworldly pace a little bit as the game wore on, but Mahomes still looks like an absolute star to start his career. We're only two games in, but Mahomes' touchdown rate of 18.2 percent is over twice that of Carson Wentz's league-leading rate of 7.5 percent in 2017. Mahomes looks like he can only be contained, not stopped, in Andy Reid's offense.

Derrick Nnadi
News
Nnadi (elbow) played 28 snaps on defense during Friday's preseason game against the Falcons, racking up three tackles and a sack.

A third-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, Nnadi likely has some leash to make the 53-man roster during his rookie season. His production against the Falcons certainly helps his chances, and he could have a decent opportunity to rotate in on the defensive line as a rookie.

Dee Ford
News
Ford recorded four solo tackles, including a sack, in Sunday's 38-28 win over the Chargers.

Ford played in just six games due to a back injury in 2017, tallying 2.0 sacks on the year. In his last full season (2016), he recorded 10.0 sacks and was a dominant force rushing the passer. He looked the part in Week 1 and will look to maintain the strong play against the Steelers in Week 2.

Mitch Morse
News
Morse (foot) has received medical clearance to return to football activities, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Morse sat out the entirety of the offseason program while recovering from a foot injury that cost him the final month of the 2017 season. After getting the screws from his ankle fully removed in June, Morse is now healthy enough to fully participate in training camp, which begins July 26.

Chris Jones
News
Jones (knee) cut back 25 pounds this offseason, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Looking to help boost his agility and speed off the edge, Jones dropped 25 pounds by simply adhering to a strict dietary plan. Per the report, Jones made it a point of emphasis to avoid pork-based foods and shifted his attention towards various vegetables. The 23-year-old started just seven games for the Chiefs last year, but if his figure holds, look for Jones to come into his own this season. With his participation during offseason workouts, Jones seems as if he's put the knee injury that plagued part of his 2017 season behind him.

Chris Conley
News
Conley nabbed both of his targets for 17 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Chiefs' 42-37 win over the Steelers.

Pat Mahomes spread the wealth around generously in Week 2, as Conley was one of five players to reel in the quarterback's six touchdown passes. While finding paydirt was enough for Conley to pay dividends for those in deeper leagues who activated him, he's drawn only three targets across 71 offensive snaps through the Chiefs' two games. Since tight end Travis Kelce and wideouts Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins compare favorably with just about any team's top three pass catchers, there may not be much incentive for the Chiefs to expand their usage tree and make getting Conley the ball a greater priority.

Demetrius Harris
News
Harris was reinstated from his one-game suspension Monday, Howard Balzer of BalzerSports.com reports.

Harris was forced to miss Week 1 after violating the league's substance abuse policy, but looks set to return to a passing offense that just put up four touchdowns against a tough Chargers front. He's a red-zone asset at 6-7 and proven to be one half of a dangerous tight end combination with Travis Kelce. Harris will look to make an impact against the Steelers in Week 2.

Sammy Watkins
News
Watkins snagged six of seven passes for 100 yards during Sunday's 42-37 win over Pittsburgh. He added a 31-yard run.

Watkins set the Chiefs up for their third touchdown late in the first quarter, taking a jet sweep up field for a gain of 31. Sunday was refreshing for fans who were a little concerned about Watkins being limited to 21 yards Week 1. Sunday showed what things can look like for Watkins when things are clicking for Kansas City, but -- unlike in years past -- Watkins is not going to be his team's most valuable weapon week to week, with Travis Kelce, Kareem Hunt and Tyreek Hill there to share the spotlight.

Daniel Sorensen
News
Sorensen (knee) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Lynn Worthy of The Kansas City Star reports.

Sorensen suffered a tibial plateau fracture as well as an MCL injury and lateral meniscus tear in his knee during training camp, but there's still a chance the safety could return to action by midseason.

Injury
Knee - Meniscus - Injured Reserve
Charvarius Ward
News
Ward has been traded by the Cowboys to the Chiefs, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Ward went unselected in the 2018 NFL Draft, but he showed enough potential during training camp to warrant a trade. The Chiefs likely wouldn't have traded for Ward had they not intended to give him a chance, so the rookie could find himself on the active roster come final cuts.

J.D. Moore
Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Demarcus Robinson
News
Robinson caught just one pass on two targets for four yards during Saturday's preseason game against the Bears.

Robinson shined brightly early in camp, but it's worth noting that Chris Conley received the start Saturday and Robinson played deep into the fourth quarter, suggesting Conley remains ahead of Robinson in the pecking order. The third-year wideout could enter the mix if an injury occurs, but he shouldn't be expected to make a large contribution in an offense that sports Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins and Kareem Hunt.

Kendall Fuller
News
Fuller (knee) will be under consideration for the Redskins' nickelback role after returning from microfracture surgery, The Washington Post reports.

Fuller dropped into the third round of this year's draft because of the knee injury he suffered last year in college, but had been given first-round grades by several teams had he owned a clean bill of health. Fortunately, he participated in minicamp last month without setbacks, and declared himself healthy afterword. Fuller is fully capable of playing on the outside, but with Josh Norman and Bashaud Breeland locking down the top corner jobs, Fuller will be tasked to handle nickleback duties his rookie year. However, he will still have to earn the job in training camp.

Mitchell Schwartz
No Updates
Step Durham
Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Eric Berry
News
Berry (heel) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

Berry never had much hope of suiting up in the Chiefs' second game of the season after failing to practice all week and carrying a doubtful designation into the contest. With Berry out of commission, Eric Murray and Ron Parker are expected to serve as the Chiefs' starting safety tandem. Both tallied nine tackles apiece in the season-opening win over the Chargers and could continue to deliver IDP utility while Berry is sidelined.

Injury
Heel - Questionable for Week 3 vs. San Francisco
Byron Pringle
News
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.

Injury
Hamstring - Injured Reserve
Gehrig Dieter
News
The Chiefs signed Dieter to a reserve/future contract Monday, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Though he has yet to make his NFL debut, Dieter has been a member of the Kansas City organization in some capacity since entering the league last spring after going undrafted out of Alabama. He signed with the team as a free agent in May after the draft, then spent the entire 2017 campaign on the practice squad upon being waived in training camp. Dieter will stick with the Chiefs throughout their offseason program and hope that the year of experience he's banked will increase his chances of winning a roster spot in 2018.

Darrel Williams
News
Williams (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

The specifics surrounding Williams' inactive status have yet to be released, but it's unlikely the LSU product would have had any major impact during Sunday's contest anyway. Slotted as the team's No. 4 running back, Williams will need to carve out a larger special teams role if he plans on keeping a roster spot for the entire 2018 season.

D'Montre Wade
No Updates
Laurent Duvernay-Tardif
News
Duvernay-Tardif (concussion) isn't part of Tuesday's injury report.

Duvernay-Tardif entered the concussion protocol in mid-August, but he appears to be all systems go as the regular season approaches. He should slot in as the team's starting right guard Sunday against the Chargers.

Orlando Scandrick
News
The Redskins are releasing Scandrick, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Despite signing a two-year contract with a $1 million signing bonus in March, the 31-year-old cornerback didn't even come close to making it to Week 1 with his new team. The Redskins must have confidence in their young cornerbacks behind Josh Norman, with Quinton Dunbar expected to fill the other starting job while Fabian Moreau figures to serve as the nickelback. Scandrick may still end up on a 53-man roster for Week 1, as his experience playing the slot could lead to interest from teams in need of a nickelback or dimeback. He was bothered by back spasms at the beginning of training camp, but he seems to be healthy now.

Breeland Speaks
No Updates
Steven Nelson
News
Nelson (undisclosed) returned to Sunday's contest, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

Nelson had reportedly been nursing a lower body injury, but it seems as though he's good enough to trot back out there. The four-year veteran will slide back into his role at starting cornerback.

Xavier Williams
News
Williams (stinger) logged 23 snaps in Friday's preseason game against the Falcons, collecting four tackles (one solo).

Williams appeared in 11 games for the Cardinals last season and is slated for a significant role for the Chiefs in 2018 now that his stinger is out of the way. With a number of guys vying for playing time, Williams could be bound for a starting role along with Stefan Charles and rookie Derrick Nnadi both candidates to rotate in.

Robert McCray
No Updates
Travis Kelce
News
Kelce snagged seven of 10 targets for 109 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 42-37 win over Pittsburgh.

Kelce fans can breathe a collective sigh of relief. Following a disappointing one-catch outing Week 1, Kelce hooked up with Patrick Mahomes for touchdowns of 19 and 25 yards, both coming up the seam. Kelce is among the best tight ends in the league in stretching the field vertically. Now equipped with a quarterback of Mahomes' arm strength, things can get ugly for opposing defenses. Expect to see more of Week 2 Kelce than Week 1 Kelce moving forward.

James Murray
News
Murray injured his knee during Thursday's preseason opener, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Battling for a reserve spot on the line, an extended injury for Murray would not help his case for a 53-man roster spot. Additional information surrounding the issue could surface following some tests.

Allen Bailey
News
Bailey (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Being able to practice in some capacity bodes well for Bailey's chances of playing Sunday against the Bills. However, with just 29 tackles (17 solo) and two sacks on the season, fantasy owners won't be lining up to start Bailey if he's healthy.

Spencer Ware
News
Ware carried the ball once for a three-yard gain during Sunday's 42-37 win over the Steelers.

After a modest showing in Week 1, Ware's role in the offense shrank further in Week 2, despite the fact that the Chiefs jumped out to a big early lead. Through two weeks, the Kansas City offense is actually more balanced (51/49 pass/run versus 57/43 in 2017) and starter Kareem Hunt is getting a smaller cut of those carries (65.4 percent versus 67.2 percent in 2017), but the production has just not been there yet for Ware. It might be appealing to add any member of the Chiefs' high-flying offense at this point, but hold off on Ware.

Joey Ivie
News
Ivie signed a contract with the Seahawks on Monday.

Ivie has been a free agent since being released by the Falcons after reaching an injury settlement with the team back in June. The defensive tackle should be considered a long shot to make the Seahawks' final roster.

Chad Henne
News
Henne completed eight of 14 passes for 91 yards with a touchdown and an interception during Thursday's preseason loss to the Texans.

Henne did exactly what he was brought in for Thursday evening, providing a stable presence to the backup position in what was a rather lackluster evening for both offenses involved. There's little doubt who will serve as Patrick Mahomes' top backup this season. Though Chase Litton and Matt McGloin both remain on the roster for preseason, the duo is likely competing to be the third quarterback kept through roster cuts.

Dustin Colquitt
News
Colquitt signed a three-year, $9 million contract with the Chiefs on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Colquitt has been the punter in Kansas City ever since the team drafted him in the third-round of the 2005 draft. His deal keeps him with the team through the 2020 season.

Marcus Kemp
News
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.

Ben Niemann
News
Niemann (hamstring) won't suit up against the Steelers on Sunday, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Niemann continues to nurse a hamstring injury suffered in the team's season opener. The severity of the depth linebacker's injury remains unknown, but Niemann shouldn't be expected to play until he's at least able to fully return to practice.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 3 vs. San Francisco
Dorian O'Daniel
News
O'Daniel (thumb) was seen in full pads during Saturday's practice, Brooke Pryor of The Kansas City Star reports.

O'Daniel missed this entire week of practice after suffering a thumb injury, but he looks to be back to full health given his return Saturday. O'Daniel, who was selected with the 100th overall pick in the 2018 draft, is in line to play a reserve role at linebacker this season.

Terrance Smith
News
Smith recorded three tackles in Saturday's preseason loss to Chicago.

Smith recorded two of his tackles on defense and another on special teams. He appears to be over the ankle injury that forced him to exit the team's second preseason game early. He's on pace to enter the season as a backup linebacker for the Chiefs.

Arrion Springs
No Updates
Anthony Hitchens
News
Hitchens posted 12 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's win over the Steelers.

Hitchens has racked up double-digit tackles in back-to-back games to start the season. He's had a strong start to his first year in Kansas City, well on pace to setting a career high in tackles. Looking ahead, Hitchens and the Chiefs will look to stay perfect on the season as they face off against the 49ers in Week 3.

Anthony Sherman
News
Sherman hauled in his only target for a 36-yard touchdown in Sunday's regular-season opener against the Chargers.

Sherman doesn't figure to have much of a role on offense for the Chiefs this season, seeing only 17 offensive snaps in the contest. He had just 20 touches all of last season, leaving him well off the fantasy radar as the lead blocker for Kareem Hunt and Spencer Ware.

Justin Houston
News
Houston notched a sack and two tackles (both solo) during Saturday's wild-card loss to the Titans. He finished the 2017 regular season with 59 tackles (46 solo) and 9.5 sacks.

Although Houston's numbers have dipped over the last couple of seasons due to injury, he returned to form in 2017, nearing double-digit sacks over 15 games. Still just 28 and under contract for the next three seasons, the seventh-year pro will almost certainly resume his role with the team next season. If he manages to stay healthy again, it wouldn't be surprising if Houston reaches or tops 10 sacks for the first time since 2014.

Eric Fisher
News
Fisher (shoulder) started at left tackle and played 24 offensive snaps during Friday's preseason win over the Falcons.

Fisher tweaked his shoulder earlier in August, but the injury has proven to be minor with him returning to normal activity. The 2013 first-rounder is slated to start at left tackle again next Saturday against the Bears during Week 3 of the preseason.
