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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Lucien spent the 2016 season on the Patriots practice squad, and he isn't expected to be activated outside of dire circumstances.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Morse has been sidelined the previous five games with a foot injury. Barring any setbacks, he should handle center duties for the Chiefs.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
