Position Listing
Phillip Gaines
News
Gaines suffered a dislocated finger in Friday's preseason loss to the 49ers, Cheifs' reporter BJ Kissel reports.

The injury is not considered serious, but could keep him sidelined for a bit. Gaines recorded one tackle in the contest. The 26-year-old started five games for the Chiefs in 2016, and is entering his fourth season with the club.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for Week 1 at New England
Rakeem Nunez-Roches
News
Nunez-Roches (back) practiced in full Wednesday.

Nunez-Roches injured his back during last Thursday's game against the Raiders, but his full showing Wednesday suggests he won't miss any additional time.

Eric Murray
News
The Chiefs selected Murray in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 106th overall.

Murray isn't a well-known name, but this looks like a fine selection for the Chiefs. Murray was the top corner on a Minnesota defense that's quietly been good against the pass the last two years, and he performed well at the Combine, too. Murray (5-foot-11, 199 pounds) logged a 4.49-second 40, 39.5-inch vertical and 124-inch broad jump. With 31.75-inch arms, Murray should have the reach to press effectively.

Cam Thomas
News
Thomas signed a contract with the Chiefs on Friday, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

A 2010 fifth-round pick by the Chargers, Thomas fits the mold of a true, two-gap nose tackle. He'll compete with Jarvis Jenkins and Montori Hughes for the backup job to starting defensive tackle Bennie Logan.

Ricky Ali'ifua
No Updates
Cairo Santos
News
Santos (groin) won't play in Saturday's preseason game against the Bengals, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Santos hasn't practiced in a couple weeks due to some sort of groin injury. Former Penn State kicker Sam Ficken will likely take on all of the place-kicking responsibilities Saturday.

Injury
Groin - Questionable for Week 1 at New England
Gavin Escobar
News
Escobar is signing a one-year contract with the Chiefs, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Escobar arrived in Kansas City for a visit Friday, and apparently management liked what he showed them. After entering the league as a second-round pick in 2013, Escobar struggled to make much of an impact behind future Hall of Famer Jason Witten, registering only 30 catches for 333 yards and eight touchdowns in 62 games. Although playing with a tight-end-friendly quarterback like Alex Smith could bode well for Escobar, having Pro Bowler Travis Kelce on the roster will again restrict him to a reserve role.

Kevin Pierre-Louis
News
Pierre-Louis (hamstring) will not play Sunday against the Eagles, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Pierre-Louis sustained a hamstring injury last Sunday against the Patriots and was unable to practice this week. As a reserve linebacker, his absence shouldn't be a huge problem for the Seahawks' stout defensive unit to overcome.

Terrance Mitchell
News
Mitchell suffered a strained hamstring at Thursday's practice, Sydney Ringdahl of Chiefs.com reports.

After being carted off the field Thursday, this news should cause Mitchell to breathe a sigh of relief. There was no tear in his hamstring, so he is expected to make a relatively quick recovery. He is competing for reps at cornerback, so a quick return to camp will be advantageous for the 25-year-old.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 1 at New England
Albert Wilson
News
Wilson caught two passes for 14 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Bengals.

Wilson played a limited role in Saturday's contest, but he is likely to see an expanded one in 2017 following the departure of Jeremy Maclin from the team's receiving corps. Wilson sits fairly comfortably as the team's third wide receiver, with breakout star Tyreek Hill and Chris Conley set to lead the way for the unit this season.

Roy Miller
News
Miller signed a contract with the Chiefs on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

Miller provides the Chiefs with insurance along the defensive line in case Chris Jones (knee) ultimately lands on the regular season PUP list. Though he missed 10 games to an Achilles injury in 2016, Miller should now be good to go and will look to improve upon his career-high sack (four) and TFL (six) totals from 2015.

Dadi Nicolas
News
Nicolas (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.

Injury
Knee - Physically Unable to Perform
Tyreek Hill
News
Hill brought in one of two targets for 32 yards in Friday's 27-17 preseason loss to the 49ers.

The speedy phenom put his stamp on the preseason opener early, notching his 32-yard reception down the right side on the Chiefs' opening possession. Hill was targeted on the very next play as well, but the pass fell incomplete. His limited snaps Friday were sufficient for Hill to showcase the game-breaking ability that made him one of the surprises of 2016, and he'll look to to put together an even more successful encore against the Bengals in the Chiefs' second preseason contest.

Jarvis Jenkins
News
Jenkins signed a one-year contract with the Chiefs on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Jenkins played with Kansas City for the final seven games of the 2016 season, recording just five tackles. In what will be his first full season with the club, look for Jenkins to see a slightly increased role as a backup defensive lineman.

Keith Baxter
News
Baxter (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.

Injury
Wrist - Questionable for Week 1 at New England
Marcus Peters
News
Peters (foot) returned for the Chiefs' mandatory minicamp in early June, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Peters had skipped voluntary OTAs due to personal reasons -- not because of the foot injury that prevented him from taking part in the Pro Bowl. His full participation in mandatory minicamp implies he won't be under any restrictions when training camp opens next month.

Mike Person
No Updates
Ron Parker
News
Parker finished the 2015 campaign with 78 tackles (67 solo), five sacks, three interceptions and a forced fumble.

Parker split 2014 between cornerback and safety, but the emergence of first-round draft pick Marcus Peters across from Sean Smith allowed him to play alongside Eric Berry this season. He took advantage of the opportunity, posting another solid season for the Chiefs in a secondary that could be scary for years to come, with Parker finishing up his first campaign of a five-year extension he signed in March of last year.

Ross Travis
News
Travis (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 15 tilt with the Titans, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports.

Travis has only been active for six games this season, recording three catches for 15 yards. As the fourth-string tight end for the Chiefs, Travis has a long way to go before attaining fantasy value.

Trevon Hartfield
News
Hartfield signed a contract with the Chiefs on Friday, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Hartfield went undrafted out of Oklahoma State in 2016 after a productive season in which he recorded 73 tackles, 25 passes defensed and five interceptions. He'll look to secure a reserve role behind starting safeties Eric Berry (heel) and Ron Parker.

De'Anthony Thomas
News
Thomas caught three of his four targets for 31 yards during Saturday's preseason game against the Bengals.

Thomas seems to have a nice rapport with rookie quarterback Patrick Mahomes, though most of his receptions came on designed bubble screens. He continues to battle for a 53-man roster spot, and Saturday's effort certainly helped his cause.

Tony Stevens

Josh James

Jordan Devey
No Updates
Tanoh Kpassagnon
News
Kpassagnon (shin) led all Chiefs defensive linemen with 49 snaps in Friday's preseason game against the 49ers.

Kpassagnon had been dealing with shin splints, so a return to health and preseason game action bodes well as he competes for meaningful snaps.

Joseph Cheek
No Updates
Tyler Bray
News
Bray finished just 2-of-5 for 23 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's game against the Bengals.

Bray didn't throw his first pass until midway through the third quarter in the contest, but clearly worked ahead of Joel Stave and behind Patrick Mahomes. The fifth-year signal-caller's status with the team likely hinges on whether or not the Chiefs keep a third quarterback. He's no longer eligible for the practice squad, so Bray will have to search for a job elsewhere if he doesn't make the cut.

Donald Hawkins
News
Hawkins signed a contract with the Chiefs on Friday, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Hawkins has spent time with eight different franchises since he entered the league as an undrafted free agent out of Texas in 2014. He's unlikely to make the final 53-man roster.

Zach Fulton
No Updates
Kareem Hunt
News
Hunt seemingly clinched the Chiefs' No. 2 running back job with his impressive performance in Saturday's preseason game against the Bengals, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

He finished the contest with eight rushes for 40 yards and three receptions for 23 yards, but Kansas City's coaching staff was most pleased with his pass protection, an area where most rookie backs often struggle most in the transition to the NFL. Hunt's blocking ability provides a nice complement to his change-of-pace skills, making him a more ideal backup to Spencer Ware than Charcandrick West. Although the third-round pick reportedly tweaked his ankle during the game, Hunt is said to be fine now and should get more chances to shine in Friday's exhibition against the Seahawks.

Leon III McQuay
No Updates
Ukeme Eligwe
News
The Chiefs selected Eligwe in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 183rd overall.

Eligwe fills a definite need for the Chiefs with veteran Derrick Johnson coming off his second Achilles injury. He started his career at Florida State and was a member of the Seminoles' national championship team, but finished his career at Georgia Southern after being dismissed from FSU. He was a standout player while at Georgia Southern and was able to resurrect his draft stock. He'll likely start out as a special teamer, but his tape from college shows that Eligwe has the potential to develop into a linebacker in the NFL.

Charcandrick West
News
West rushed for 113 yards on seven carries -- including a game-high 50-yard run -- during Saturday's preseason win over Cincinnati.

West is battling to hold off rookie Kareem Hunt and first-year Chief C.J. Spiller, so this was a strong outing for the third-year running back. However, it's worth noting that West broke his 50-yard run in the fourth quarter when the Cincinnati starters were out of the game. Additionally, Hunt impressed against the Bengals' first-team defense. Still, West projects to have a role in the rushing attack to open the season. It just might not be a large enough one to provide reliable fantasy numbers.

D.J. White
News
White (hand) logged a full practice Wednesday.

White has missed the past three games with a fracture in his hand. However, his uninhibited practice Wednesday suggests he'll be ready to play Sunday against the Bucs.

Tevin Jones
News
Jones signed a contract Monday with the Chiefs, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Jones, an undrafted Memphis product who didn't see the field in the professional ranks during his first year out of college, was previously let go by the Texans in May. He'll look to parlay his speed (4.38 40-yard dash) into a role as a depth receiver and special teams contributor with the Chiefs.

Patrick Mahomes
News
Mahomes completed 10 of 14 passes for 88 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing for 29 yards on three attempts during Saturday's preseason win over Cincinnati.

This was another solid showing for Mahomes. The Texas Tech product has now completed 17 of 23 passes for 137 yards and three touchdowns through his first two preseason outings. Mahomes is being groomed as the quarterback of the future, as starting QB Alex Smith has guided the Chiefs to the postseason in three of the past four seasons. As a result, Mahomes is unlikely to see much -- if any -- playing time if things go as planned for Kansas City in 2017. Still, it appears to be a foregone conclusion that Mahomes will beat out Tyler Bray for the No. 2 QB job, and the 2017 first-round selection could emerge as a serviceable fantasy asset in the right matchups if pressed into duty.

Isaiah Battle
News
Battle (hamstring) is healthy and practicing with the Chiefs again, Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.

The quick recovery is exactly what Battle needed in order to have a chance at the 53-man roster. Battle will be a depth option for the Chiefs' offensive front if he does make the roster.

Steven Terrell
News
Terrell signed a contract with the Chiefs on Thursday.

Terrell spent the last two seasons as a reserve with the Seahawks, playing mostly as a special teamer during that stretch. He now has a chance to compete for a roster spot behind Eric Berry (heel) and Daniel Sorensen.

Antwan Goodley
News
Goodley (undisclosed) reverted to the Chiefs' injured reserve list Wednesday.

It isn't clear what Goodley is dealing with, but he'll likely remain on IR through the end of the end of the 2017 season unless he reaches an injury settlement with the Chiefs.

Injury
Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Dee Ford
News
Ford's fifth-year option was picked up by the Chiefs on Monday, BJ Kissel of the team's official site reports.

The Chiefs labeled the decision to pick up Ford's option a "no brainer" after he recorded 38 tackles, including 10 sacks, in 2016. The option keeps the linebacker in Kansas City through the 2018 season.

Frank Zombo
News
Several Chiefs who were on the injury report are active for the game at San Francisco. They include linebackers Tamba Hali (knee) and Frank Zombo (hamstring), cornerbacks Sean Smith (groin) and Marcus Cooper (knee), and running back De'Anthony Thomas (hamstring).
C.J. Spiller
News
Spiller compiled six carries for 27 yards and gathered in his only target for 16 yards during Saturday's preseason win at Cincinnati.

Spiller followed a two-snap stint from Spencer Ware and a lengthier run from rookie Kareem Hunt, taking the field for the first time midway through the second quarter. Although Spiller's first touch doubled as a 12-yard run and his second was a 16-yard catch, only one, a 15-yard scamper, escaped the range of minus-five to three yards. No matter, he easily surpassed his preseason Week 1 line -- two rushes for nine yards and one reception for two yards -- yet remains third on the RB depth chart. If Charcandrick West replicates his 113-yard, second-half outburst at any point moving forward, Spiller could begin to fall out of favor in the Chiefs' backfield.

Mitch Morse
No Updates
Chris Jones
News
Jones (knee) was removed from the Physically Unable to Perform list Sunday, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Jones participated in individual drills Sunday but not in any team work. Look for him to ramp up his activity level in practice as the week unfolds in hopes of being ready for the Chiefs' second preseason outing Aug. 19 against the Bengals.

Chris Conley
News
Conley hauled in both of his targets for 46 yards in Friday's 27-17 preseason loss to the 49ers. He also had an 83-yard touchdown nullified by his own offensive pass interference penalty.

The 2015 third-rounder was solid while hauling in 44 receptions for 530 yards last season, an effort that has raised expectations heading into the current campaign. Conley also figures in for a considerable boost in targets with the departure of Jeremy Maclin, and he got his quest for a breakout 2017 off to a strong start Friday. The 24-year-old bounced back from sabotaging his own scoring play by bringing in a 29-yard pass down the left side from quarterback Tyler Bray two plays later, and he subsequently added a 17-yard reception. Conley will look to parlay his big-play upside into even better production against the Bengals in the Chiefs' second preseason game.

Jordan Sterns

Demetrius Harris
News
Harris caught all three of his targets for 14 yards and two touchdowns during Saturday's preseason win over Cincinnati.

A converted basketball player, Harris is now in his fourth season with the Chiefs and has another uphill battle for fantasy relevance. Saturday's two-touchdown performance is a solid first step, but Harris is firmly behind Travis Kelce on the depth chart, and Kansas City also brought in Gavin Escobar during the offseason. Taking a wait-and-see approach with Harris is advised in the majority of fantasy settings.

Justin March-Lillard
News
March-Lillard (hand) was activated to the Chiefs' active roster Friday, The Daily News reports.

Despite joining the active roster for the first time since breaking his left hand in October, head coach Andy Reid admitted March-Lillard is unlikely to play in this weekend's season finale against the Chargers.

Robert Wheelwright
No Updates
Daniel Sorensen
News
Sorensen signed a four-year, $16 million extension that includes nearly $8 million guaranteed, NFL.com's Mike Garafolo reports.

A 2014 UDFA, the 27-year-old Sorensen has only started one game in three NFL seasons, but he's a core special teamer who took advantage of an expanded defensive role to record a career-best 63 tackles in 2016 -- also notching three interceptions, three fumble recoveries and two forced fumbles. He'll likely continue to serve as the third safety behind starters Eric Berry and Ron Parker, getting most of his playing time in passing situations.

DeVante Bausby
News
Chiefs cornerback DeVante Bausby is scheduled to undergo surgery Thursday to repair his collarbone, reports The Kansas City Star. Bausby broke his collarbone last week while practicing with the Chiefs.

The Chiefs announced Bausby has been waived.

Demarcus Robinson
News
Robinson etched his name in coach Andy Reid's mind during the team's OTAs and could challenge for playing time in 2017, Adam Teicher of ESPN reports. "He's the young [receiver] that's come up here a little bit and had a pretty good offseason," Reid said. "We'll see how he does once we get going in the preseason. He can go after it. He can run, and he can do the short stuff, too. His strength coming in was that he was good after the catch wherever you get it to him. I'm not saying he's that guy right now, but he's had a good offseason."

Robinson was surpassed by another rookie -- Tyreek Hill -- on the depth chart during his inaugural NFL campaign, but the Chiefs' 2016 fourth-round selection has made some marked improvement coming into his sophomore season. The release of veteran receiver Jeremy Maclin opened some reps at the position and Robinson appears in the mix for some additional work. Hill will receive the first shot as the team's "Z" receiver and Chris Conley should be locked in across from him, meaning Robinson and the others will battle it out for the third spot on the wideout depth chart.

Andrew Tiller
News
Tiller signed Wednesday with the Chiefs.

The Syracuse product spent his first three seasons with the 49ers, appearing in 28 games and starting 14. Assuming he makes the roster, Tiller figures to provide depth at guard for the Chiefs.

Eric Berry
News
Berry (heel) returned to practice Monday, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

Berry has been dealing with a sore heel for roughly over two weeks now. Fortunately, the Chiefs seemed willing to allow him to fully recuperate before making a return to the field. Berry projects as the team's starting safety in the coming season.

Bennie Logan
News
Logan did not practice Saturday due to a sore knee, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

The fact that Logan is only dealing with soreness suggests this injury isn't anything to be overly concerned about. Jarvis Jones took his place in the base defense, though it was Rakeem Nunez-Roches who shifted over from end to fill in at nose tackle.

Parker Ehinger
News
Ehinger (knee) has been cleared to practice.

Ehinger passed his physical Monday and was subsequently cleared to practice. It's been a long road back to the field for the second-year player out of Cincinnati, who tore his ACL during his rookie campaign. The Chiefs are hoping Ehinger can function as a solid backup plan should he be needed at any point during the season.

Ramik Wilson
News
Wilson was signed by the Chiefs on Tuesday.

Wilson was released by the Chiefs just before the beginning of the season, but with Justin March (undisclosed) landing on the IR, the team decided to bring back the 24-year-old. Expect Wilson to serve as a backup behind Sam Barrington while also playing a role on special teams.

Jehu Chesson
News
Chesson caught two passes for 15 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Bengals.

It was the first two passes Chesson caught in a Chiefs uniform since he was drafted in the fifth round this past spring. He was tied for the team lead in targets Saturday with four, but will likely be a depth option at wideout in Kansas City this season.

Steven Nelson
News
Nelson (groin) isn't practicing Sunday, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Shortly after missing practice time with a hamstring injury, Nelson now is tending to a groin strain. It isn't certain how long he'll be out.

Seantavius Jones
News
Jones caught just one pass during Saturday's game against the Bengals, but it went for 18 yards and a touchdown.

Jones had some buzz surrounding him early in camp, but his lone reception came from presumed third-string quarterback Tyler Bray. The praise has died down over the last couple of weeks, and he's totaled just three receptions through two preseason games. Coach Andy Reid hasn't announced the starters yet, but Jones likely remains in the mix for playing time despite a couple lackluster preseason efforts.

Travis Kelce
News
Kelce caught his only target for a 36-yard reception during Saturday's preseason win over Cincinnati.

Kelce hauled in his only reception on a deep pass down the middle and wasn't targeted again Saturday. He missed practice time earlier in camp and didn't suit up for the preseason opener because of swelling in his left knee, so just returning to game action was a positive for the veteran tight end. While he wasn't the beneficiary of the actual targets, it was also encouraging that tight end Demetrius Harris caught two touchdown passes inside the red zone Saturday. With just 14 touchdown catches over the past three seasons, fantasy owners would love to see Kelce more involved near the goal line. Perhaps, Harris' red-zone targets are a sign of things to come from the Kansas City offense in 2017.

Josh Mauga
News
Mauga (hip) returned to the field during Friday's preseason game against the 49ers, Blair Kerkhoff of The Kansas City Star reports.

Mauga was sidelined for all of last season with the hip injury, but now returns to the fold to provide the club with some depth at inside linebacker. The 30-year-old inside linebacker was positioned to earn a starting role with the club last season, but his injury opened the door for Ramik Wilson. He will return in a reserve role behind Wilson, but would likely be the next man up if either he or Derrick Johnson suffers an injury.

Orson Charles
News
Head coach John Fox said that McPhee had a cleanup procedure on the knee he had repaired in the offseason, but there's no timetable for his return, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

McPhee can be a difference-maker when healthy, but since joining the Bears, he's struggled to stay on the field consistently. Until more details emerge about his timeline, he should be avoided in IDP drafts.

Allen Bailey
News
Bailey (pectoral) is 100 percent healthy and has his full strength and motion back, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Bailey lasted just five games into the 2016 season before landing on injured reserve with a torn right pectoral that required six months of rehab. He returns to find himself in a competition for a starting defensive end job with Rakeem Nunez-Roches, Chris Jones and 2017 second-rounder Tanoh Kpassagnon.

Spencer Ware
News
Ware rushed four times for six yards and a touchdown in Friday's 27-17 preseason loss to the 49ers. He also secured three of his four targets for 20 yards.

Ware remains atop the running back depth chart and did nothing to tarnish his standing Friday, playing his typically strong role in the passing game and opening the scoring on the night with a two-yard run to cap off the Chiefs' first drive. The 25-year-old posted career bests in carries (214) and rushing yards (921) last season, but will need to continue producing to stave off the challenge of fellow incumbent Charcandrick West and promising third-round pick Kareem Hunt. He's likely to see a bump in playing time against the Bengals in the Chiefs' second preseason tilt.

Jacoby Glenn
News
Glenn was waived by the Bears on Monday, Brad Biggs of The Chicago Tribune reports.

Glenn played in seven games for Chicago in 2016, recording 26 tackles and six passes defensed, including an interception. He'll look to catch on as a depth secondary player with another club in 2017.

Marcus Rush
News
Rush signed a contract with Kansas City on Tuesday, Matt Derrick of ChiefsDigest.com reports.

Rush spent much of 2016 on the 49ers' practice squad and ended the year with the Jaguars. Now with the Chiefs, Rush will look to make the roster as a depth linebacker and special teams player.

Alonzo Moore

Maurice Swain
News
Swain signed with the Chiefs on Sunday.

The 22-year-old has a ways to go before he can squeeze onto the active roster. As for now, training camp and the preseason will be his toughest tests to date.

Tamba Hali
News
Hali (undisclosed) has been placed on the physically unable to perform list for the start of training camp, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

It is unclear what specifically the veteran is dealing with, but the Chiefs are likely exercising caution in order for him to return to full health before he returns to the field. The veteran outside linebacker is entering his 12th season with the Chiefs, and projects to start at outside linebacker in Week 1. He saw his snap count decrease in the latter portion of last season, and figures to continue seeing a slightly smaller workload going forward given his age.

Earl Okine
News
Okine had a sack in Saturday's preseason win over Buffalo.

Okine is being moved to linebacker from defensive end as the Colts seek help in their pass rush. The undrafted free agent from Florida could win a regular role after a strong showing in training camp.

Larry Scott
News
Scott signed with the Chiefs on Sunday.

Scott was most recently released by the Colts in May after struggling to find a home in his rookie season in the NFL. The former Oregon State standout likely will stick around during the preseason before final roster cuts are made.

Jah Reid

Joel Stave
News
Stave was signed to Minnesota's practice squad, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Even if there is more chaos at quarterback with Sam Bradford and Shuan Hill taking over for injured Teddy Bridgewater, it's hard to see Stave as an option to be activated to the 53-man roster. He'll likely spend the full season developing on the practice squad.

Kenneth Acker
News
Acker (groin) played a team-high 41 snaps at cornerback in the Chiefs' preseason opener against the 49ers.

Acker left practice with a groin injury back in June, but it appears as though he's back to full strength after putting together a solid outing to kick off the preseason. While Acker did take the most snaps, he'll likely still be fighting for a depth spot at cornerback for the rest of training camp.

Terrance Smith
News
Smith was promoted to the Chiefs' active roster Wednesday, The Kansas City Star reports.

Smith, an undrafted rookie out of Florida State, will help replace Sam Barrington and Sio Moore (both of whom were released Tuesday). He projects as the Chiefs' No. 4 inside linebacker.

David King
News
King (ankle) recorded three tackles and one sack in Friday's preseason game against the 49ers.

King had been dealing with an ankle injury but appears to be healthy based on his latest game performance. The former Oklahoma Sooner is competing with Maurice Swain and Tanoh Kpassagnon (shin) to back up starter Allen Bailey.

Alex Smith
News
Coach Andy Reid reiterated Smith's standing as the Chiefs' starting quarterback, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports. Speaking on competition from rookie Patrick Mahomes, Reid said, "It's Alex's job. That's what it is. There's no gray area with that."

Smith's resounding support from Reid comes after both he and Mahomes impressed in their two preseason performances thus far. The veteran is surely the less flashy option, but his consistency and experience makes him more reliable, and the Chiefs have enjoyed much success with him at the helm in recent years. As a result, Smith's fantasy stock should remain unchanged, while Mahomes' sits in need of an injury to have significant value outside of dynasty formats.

Anthony Sherman
News
Jones (undisclosed) was placed on the active/non-football injury list Wednesday.

Jones, who signed a massive five-year, $60 million extension with the Dolphins in March, is not ready to join the team on the field quite yet. He missed the final 10 games of last season with a torn rotator cuff, which could be what's affecting him at the moment. The team is likely exercising caution with the safety in order to ensure his health as the season inches closer.

Justin Houston
News
Houston capped off his 2016 season Sunday with six tackles (five solo) in a divisional-round loss to the Steelers.

Houston missed the team's final two regular-season games due to injury, but was deemed healthy enough to give it a go in the team's first playoff game. While he did record six tackles, the 28-year-old pass rusher was unable to get to Ben Roethlisberger in the contest and finishes his injury-shortened 2016 campaign with just four sacks over six games (including the playoffs). He remains under contract with the Chiefs for another four years, but has played just 16 games combined in the last two seasons. The Georgia product may be a somewhat risky proposition in terms of health, but his injury history could make him a high-value IDP option in 2017 if he can play the entire season.

Derrick Johnson
News
Johnson (Achilles) won't start training camp on the Chiefs' preseason Physically Unable to Perform list, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

Johnson, who ruptured his left Achilles tendon last December, is seemingly healthy enough to take part in camp, but don't be surprised if the Chiefs monitor the veteran's reps in training camp and the preseason. The 34-year-old accrued 90 stops and an interception in 13 games in 2016.

Sam Ficken
News
Ficken made a 23-yard field goal and hit three of his four extra point attempts in Saturday's preseason game against the Bengals.

It was Ficken's debut with the Chiefs as regular starter Cairo Santos continues to nurse a groin injury. Ficken was unlikely to make the 53-man roster barring a setback from Santos, but a missed extra point surely won't help his case regardless.
