Position Listing
Phillip Gaines
News
Gaines recorded four tackles in Friday's preseason loss to the Seahawks.

Showing no signs of having dislocated his finger two weeks ago, Gaines tied for the second-most tackles in the game. He's expected to open the season as the top backup to Marcus Peters and Steven Nelson.

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 was signed by the Chiefs on Monday, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Thomas spent the preseason with the Chiefs before losing his roster spot to Roy Miller. The 30-year-old now rejoins Kansas City to serve as backup nose tackle, replacing Miller on the 53-man roster in the process.

Reggie Ragland
News
Ragland recorded a season-high nine tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Ragland's previous season-high in tackles was four, so he more than doubled that output. The 24-year-old made the most of his 47 defensive snaps (68.0 percent). He will look to carry that momentum into the Chiefs' Week 12 game versus the Bills.

Kevin Pierre-Louis
News
Pierre-Louis (groin) is inactive for Monday's game against the Redskins, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Without Pierre-Louis, look for Terrance Smith to slide into the primary reserve inside linebacker spot behind Derrick Johnson.

Terrance Mitchell
News
Mitchell recorded a team-high nine tackles (all solo) and two interceptions in Sunday's 24-10 win over the Chargers.

Mitchell started opposite superstar Marcus Peters -- who intercepted a pass as well -- so it shouldn't come as a surprise that Phillip Rivers looked his way quite often. Mitchell held his own Sunday and will likely be tasked with doing the same moving forward.

Albert Wilson
News
Wilson (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Even with the Chiefs returning from a bye, Wilson was unable to practice in any capacity this week, making it unsurprising that he'll be sidelined for a second straight contests. Wilson's absence will presumably allow Demarcus Robinson to handle elevated snaps for the fifth consecutive week, though Tyreek Hill is expected to rank as the top target among the Chiefs' wideouts Sunday.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 12 vs. Buffalo
Dadi Nicolas
News
Nicolas (knee) returned to practice Wednesday, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Nicolas, who ruptured his patellar tendon in Week 17 of the 2016 season, currently resides on the Physically Unable to Perform list. His return to practice opens a three-week window in which the Chiefs will have to decide to either add him to the 53-man roster or place him on season-ending injured reserve.

Injury
Knee - Physically Unable to Perform
Tyreek Hill
News
Hill caught all seven of his targets for 68 yards and added a 16-yard carry in Sunday's 12-9 overtime loss to the Giants.

The explosive Hill never found the room to put his team over the top with a huge play, as a 38-yard catch represented his biggest gain of the day. He's been largely held in check with fewer than 70 receiving yards in six of the past seven games.

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 12 vs. Buffalo
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.

Devin Lucien
News
Lucien (undisclosed) was placed on the Colts' practice squad injured list.

Lucien spent the 2016 season on the Patriots practice squad, and he isn't expected to be activated outside of dire circumstances.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for Week 12 vs. Buffalo
Ron Parker
News
Parker logged eight tackles (five solo) to lead the Chiefs in Sunday night's victory over the Texans.

Parker has been inconsistent so far this season, as he has recorded 19 of his 25 tackles in just two games. The veteran free safety also has failed to record a turnover or sack. He was one of two defenders to play all 64 snaps in Week 5, so he figures to have plenty of opportunities to accumulate more statistics going forward.

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.

De'Anthony Thomas
News
Thomas caught all of his three targets for 41 yards Sunday against the Cowboys.

The speedster showed some nice hands and physicality with a nice grab across the middle in Sunday's tilt, and Thomas was one of the team's more productive pass catchers in the contest. Even so, he's unlikely to provide enough fantasy value to creep onto the fantasy radars of most leagues.

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.

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.

Cameron Erving
News
Erving (calf) was traded to Kansas City on Wednesday.

Erving, a 2015 former first-round pick, struggled to mesh with the Cleveland line during his short tenure with the Browns. Given his struggles, the Browns understandably agreed to part ways with Erving once the Chiefs offered a 2018 fifth-round pick. The Florida State product reportedly lost his starting job to Shon Coleman after bouncing around to different positions. The Chiefs likely will aim to use Erving as a reserve lineman for the time being.

Harrison Butker
News
Butker converted all three of his field-goal attempts in Sunday's 12-9 overtime loss to the Giants.

Butker scored the entirety of Kansas City's points on a tough offensive day. After hitting double figures in four of his first five games, the rookie has totaled just 14 points over his last two outings.

George Atkinson
News
Atkinson has missed the cut for the Raiders' 53-man roster, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Atkinson was claimed by the Raiders in July, but he couldn't make enough noise during training camp to avoid the pink slip. He will now hit the open market if unclaimed through waivers.

Tyler Bray
News
Bray (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Steelers, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Bray has been third on the depth chart at quarterback behind Alex Smith and Patrick Mahomes all season, and that's unlikely to change barring an injury to one of the two players. As a result, look for Bray to remain a fixture on the inactive list until further notice.

Zach Fulton
No Updates
Kareem Hunt
News
Hunt rushed 18 times for 73 yards and added three catches for four yards on four targets in Sunday's 12-9 overtime loss to the Giants.

The rookie running back continued his recent slump despite the favorable matchup, failing to crack triple-digit rushing yards or score a rushing touchdown for the fifth consecutive game. His recent downturn comes after Hunt topped 100 yards in four of his first five appearances, while scoring on the ground four times over that span. Hunt had an 18-yard run and a 12-yard catch wiped away by penalties on the same first-quarter drive, contributing to his mediocre performance in a game in which Kansas City was held out of the end zone altogether.

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.

Rickey Hatley
No Updates
Charcandrick West
News
West rushed just once for three yards and caught five passes for 30 yards during Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

West continues to serve in his role as a pass catcher for the Chiefs on drives in which they need to abandon the run. That was the case frequently during the second half Sunday, with the team on the comeback trail most of the game. West may have a lesser role next week against a struggling Giants squad.

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.

Steven Terrell
News
Terrell (concussion) logged his second straight full practice Tuesday, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Terrell sat out Sunday's loss to the Steelers after suffering a concussion in Week 5. However, he now appears clear of the team's concussion protocol and should be set to return Thursday against the Raiders, barring any setbacks.

Dee Ford
News
Ford (back) won't play Sunday against the Giants, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Along with Ford, Tamba Hali (knees) has also been ruled out, depriving the Chiefs of much edge-rushing talent on the strong side of the defense. With Ford out for the second consecutive game and the fourth time overall this season, Frank Zombo is the leading candidate to see an uptick in snaps.

Injury
Back - Questionable for Week 12 vs. Buffalo
Frank Zombo
News
Zombo racked up five tackles (two solo), including a sack in Sunday's game against the Giants.

Zombo matched his season-high total for tackles during the contest and notched his first full sack of the campaign. He had previously collected a half-sack in Week 5 against the Texans, giving him 1.5 for the season. The veteran also made just his third start of 2017 but could make another next week if Dee Ford (back) is unavailable again for the Chiefs.

Mitch Morse
News
Morse (foot) will return and start at center for Monday's matchup against the Broncos, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official website reports.

Morse has been sidelined the previous five games with a foot injury. Barring any setbacks, he should handle center duties for the Chiefs.

Chris Jones
News
Jones recorded four tackles (all solo), three sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Eagles.

Jones was selected by the Chiefs in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft as the heir apparent to Dontari Poe at the nose tackle position. Instead, he's shifted to the defensive end spot due to the signing of Bennie Logan during the offseason. That didn't stop him from putting his talent on full display Sunday, and he could start to sneak onto the IDP fantasy radar if he can piece together some similar efforts.

Chris Conley
News
The 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.

Injury
Achilles - Injured Reserve
Jordan Sterns
Injury
Illness - Out for Week 12 vs. Buffalo
No Updates
Akeem Hunt
News
Hunt rushed once for three yards Sunday against the Steelers.

Hunt joined the mix Sunday after Charcandrick West (concussion) departed the contest and was unable to return. With Kareem Hunt still playing 78 percent of the team's snaps and C.J. Spiller rejoining the equation, Hunt's upside heading into next week remains severely limited even if West can't go.

Demetrius Harris
News
Harris was targeted twice but did not record a catch in Sunday's 19-13 loss to the Steelers.

Harris' second target was the biggest of the game as Alex Smith looked his way on 4th-and-goal, the ball ripped out of Harris' hands before he could establish possession. Harris, playing behind one of the best tight ends in the league in Travis Kelce, saw the field for 18 offensive snaps on Sunday, a third of the Chiefs' total. He has almost as many catchless games (four) this season as he does catches (five), but he's a big body that might nab a touchdown here and there.

Daniel Sorensen
News
Sorensen recorded his first pick of the season in Sunday's loss to the Bills.

Sorensen added six tackles (five solo) to go along with his interception. The 27-year-old picked off Eli Manning mid-way through the first quarter. He played all but one snap on defense.

Demarcus Robinson
News
Robinson is expected to handle extended snaps Sunday against the Giants with Albert Wilson (hamstring) ruled out for the second straight contest, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Wilson previously missed the Week 9 loss to the Cowboys, allowing Robinson to step in and take on his second-largest workload of the season (56 offensive snaps). While another hefty snap count awaits him coming out of the Chiefs' bye week, Robinson isn't expected to see many looks from quarterback Alex Smith as a result. Since his five-catch, eight-target outing Week 7 against the Raiders, Robinson has caught just three passes in his subsequent two appearances.

Mitchell Schwartz
No Updates
Eric Berry
News
Berry (Achilles) is expected to be out for six months, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

As disheartening as this is for Berry, it doesn't appear to be a career-threatening injury. There's a good chance he'll make a full recovery by or even before the six-month expected recovery date. Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder was quick to note that this is a ballpark estimate and things can change depending on his progress. While he's out, Daniel Sorenson is the likely replacement.

Injury
Achilles - Injured Reserve
Bennie Logan
News
Logan (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday.

Head coach Andy Reid indicated earlier this week that the knee issue was a minor one, and Logan fully participating in practice Thursday confirms that. The 28-year-old is fully expected to play in Sunday's game against the Eagles at this point.

Gehrig Dieter
No Updates
Bryan Witzmann
No Updates
Parker Ehinger
News
Ehinger (knee) practiced in full Thursday.

Ehinger hasn't seen any game action this season due to a knee injury. However, that could change in Week 4 now that he seems to have returned to full strength.

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.

Laurent Duvernay-Tardif
News
The Chiefs have listed Duvernay-Tardif (knee) as inactive for Monday's game against the Broncos, BJ Kissel of the team's official website reports.

Duvernay-Tardif's absence will mark his fourth consecutive game missed. As a result, look for Zach Fulton to continue filling in at right guard.

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

Chesson was tied for the team lead in targets Saturday with four, but that was a byproduct of playing deep into the contest when most of the Chiefs' top wideout options had called it a night long before. The fifth-round pick will likely be a depth option at wideout in his first professional season.

Steven Nelson
News
The Chiefs designated Nelson (abdomen) as one of their two players eligible to return from injured reserve, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

The designation allows Nelson to resume practicing with the Chiefs, giving the team a three-week window to activate him. Nelson, who could be cleared to play as soon as the Week 9 matchup with the Cowboys, would provide an upgrade to a Chiefs secondary that's sorely missed his absence this season. Over 15 games in 2016, Nelson failed to notch an interception, but broke up 16 passes and logged 65 tackles.

Travis Kelce
News
Kelce turned a season-high 14 targets into eight catches for 109 yards while throwing an interception on his lone passing attempt in Sunday's 12-9 overtime loss to the Giants.

Kelce saw his three-game touchdown streak come to an end against an opponent that had allowed a touchdown to a tight end in every game this season coming in. The star tight end's owners will still be happy with his performance, however, as he consistently got open against New York's slow linebackers and safeties while topping the 100-yard mark for the fourth time this year. On his interception, Kelce took a lateral from quarterback Alex Smith and uncorked a beatiful deep throw that just missed Demarcus Robinson 46 yards downfield.

Keith Reaser
News
Reaser entered Sunday's preseason loss to the Vikings with the second-unit defense, finishing with six tackles (all solo) in 43 snaps.

The 26-year-old has slipped down the depth chart this preseason and projects to be a backup/special teams contributor now that his knee injury has healed.

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 (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Bailey is nursing an MCL sprain and was unable to practice coming out of the Chiefs' bye week, sealing his fate for Sunday's contest. With 29 tackles and two sacks in nine games this season, Bailey isn't a major entity in IDP formats.

Injury
Knee - MCL - Questionable for Week 12 vs. Buffalo
Spencer Ware
News
The 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.

Tamba Hali
News
Hali (knees) has been BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Hali didn't make his season debut until Week 9 while battling a knee injury dating back to training camp, and it wasn't long before he succumbed to a setback. Despite playing only 23 snaps in the Chiefs' last game against Dallas on Nov. 5, Hali experienced inflammation in his knees following the outing, and the bye week didn't provide sufficient time for him to recover. The Chiefs could struggle to generate a pass rush against the Giants with fellow outside linebacker Dee Ford (back) also sidelined for the Week 11 contest.

Injury
Knee - Questionable for Week 12 vs. Buffalo
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 suffered a concussion during Sunday's game against the Giants and won't return.

Smith is mainly deployed in special teams scenarios, so Reggie Ragland may pick up a bulk of his duties for the time being. The second-year pro will enter the league's concussion protocol, and he'll have a week to recover for Week 12's matchup with the Bills.

Injury
Concussion - Questionable for Week 12 vs. Buffalo
Will Redmond
News
Redmond (ankle) was waived/injured by the 49ers on Friday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The 2016 third-round draft pick failed to rehab from an ankle issue this preseason after missing all of last year with a significant knee injury. The 49ers could reclaim Redmond and place him on injured reserve if he passes through waivers Saturday.

Alex Smith
News
Smith completed 27 of 40 passes for 230 yards whie throwing two interceptions without a touchdown, and added 27 yards on five carries in Sunday's 12-9 overtime loss to the Giants.

Smith came into this one with an 18:1 TD:INT ratio and coach Andy Reid was 16-2 coming out of a bye week before this shocking defeat, so few could have foreseen this clunker coming. The veteran quarterback's fourth-quarter interception just before the two-minute warning set the Giants up in field-goal range with the game tied 6-6. He appeared to throw a game-ending interception while trailing 9-6 on the next drive, but a defensive pass interference penalty erased that mistake and allowed Kansas City to force overtime. Smith's finished with exactly one passing touchdown and no interceptions in each of his four home appearances, so don't expect a world-beating performance at Arrowhead Stadium against the Bills next week.

Anthony Sherman

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 (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Houston's absence from Friday's practice caused worries about his health, but it likely was just a maintenance day. Although he's averaging under five tackles per game, Houston has racked up 7.5 sacks through eight games. He'll have a tough task pressuring Dak Prescott, who has been sacked on just 3.8 percent of his dropbacks, ranking seventh in the league.

Eric Fisher
News
Fisher (back) will play in Monday's game against Washington, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.

Fisher woke up Monday unsure if he'd be ready, but following a good showing in warmups, he'll anchor the Kansas City offensive line to close out Week 4 action.

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.
