 Latest Chiefs Player Notes
Nov 20 2017 - Kevin Pierre-Louis
  LB Kevin Pierre-Louis and LB Derrick Johnson split playing time down the middle against the Giants in the Will linebacker role. Johnson played a season-low 35 snaps with Pierre-Louis playing 34 snaps. Head coach Andy Reid plans to continue rotating his inside linebackers to keep everyone fresh and playing more aggressively downhill.


Nov 20 2017 - Derrick Johnson
  LB Derrick Johnson and LB Kevin Pierre-Louis split playing time down the middle against the Giants in the Will linebacker role. Johnson played a season-low 35 snaps with Pierre-Louis playing 34 snaps. Head coach Andy Reid plans to continue rotating his inside linebackers to keep everyone fresh and playing more aggressively downhill.


Nov 20 2017 - Reggie Ragland
  LB Reggie Ragland played a season-high 47 snaps on defense against the Giants, cementing his status as the team's starting Mike linebacker. LB Ramik Wilson appeared only on special teams. Reid said Ragland did a nice job against the Giants and believes he continues improving week-by-week.


Nov 20 2017 - Allen Bailey
  DE Allen Bailey sat out Sunday's game because of a sprained knee. Coach Andy Reid indicated Bailey's knee improved during the bye week and in the lead up to the Giants game, but he was held him out of the game as well as practice last week.


Nov 20 2017 - Albert Wilson
  WR Albert Wilson missed his second straight game with a hamstring injury. Wilson initially sustained a sprained knee in Week 5 against the Houston Texans, and the two injuries have limited him since then. His availability for the team's Week 12 game against Buffalo remains in doubt.


Nov 20 2017 - Tamba Hali
  LB Tamba Hali did not play Sunday against the Giants after making his return to the roster in Week 9 against the Dallas Cowboys. Hali played 23 snaps in that game, but head coach Andy Reid said the veteran pass rusher experienced swelling in his knee afterward that kept him out of practice last week.


Nov 20 2017 - Steven Nelson
  CB Steven Nelson left Sunday's game during the overtime period with an undisclosed injury. Nelson, who missed the first seven games of the season while on injured reserve with a core muscle injury, landed awkwardly on his chest while attempting to make a tackle. Head coach Andy Reid said after the game he believed Nelson would be OK.


Nov 20 2017 - Terrance Smith
  LB Terrance Smith left Sunday's game with a concussion and remains in the league's concussion protocol. Smith received a flag for unnecessary roughness for a block on New York Giants long snapper Zak DeOssie.


Nov 20 2017 - Harrison Butker
  PK Harrison Butker's three field goals gave him 22 straight conversions, the fifth-longest streak in franchise history.


Nov 15 2017 - Dadi Nicolas
  LB Dadi Nicolas returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since rupturing his patella tendon in the season finale against the Chargers last season. Nicolas remained on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list since the beginning of training camp. The move allows the second-year linebacker to practice for up to three weeks before the team must return Nicolas to the active roster, keep him on season-ending PUP or put him on waivers. This week marked the last week to return to practice or shut him down for the season.


Nov 15 2017 - Albert Wilson
  WR Albert Wilson did not practice Wednesday after straining his hamstring in Week 8 against Denver. Wilson's absence leaves the Chiefs with just four healthy wide receivers. The club did add former New England Patriots WR Devin Lucien to the practice squad, where he joins rookie receivers Marcus Kemp and Gehrig Dieter.


Nov 15 2017 - Allen Bailey
  DE Allen Bailey did not practice Wednesday. He remains on the sideline with a sprained knee suffered in Week 9 against Dallas. His timetable for return remains unclear.


Nov 15 2017 - Tamba Hali
  LB Tamba Hali, who made his season debut in the team's last game against Dallas, did not practice Wednesday. Head coach Andy Reid said Hali continues to suffer swelling on his knee that limited his practice workload in recent seasons.


Nov 15 2017 - Dee Ford
  LB Dee Ford did not practice Wednesday, remaining on the sidelines with a back issue that has plagued him much of the season and kept him out of three games, including the team's last game against Dallas in Week 9. Ford has just 1.5 sacks and eight tackles in six games this season. .


Nov 13 2017 - Kareem Hunt
  RB Kareem Hunt leads the league in rushing and yards from scrimmage, piling up 800 yards on the ground and adding 331 more through the air along with six touchdowns in total.


Nov 13 2017 - Alex Smith
  QB Alex Smith posted one of the strongest first halves of his career, completing 69.6 percent of his passes for 2,444 yards and 18 touchdowns in the team's first nine games. All those numbers put him well on pace for career highs.


Nov 13 2017 - Cam Thomas
  DT Cam Thomas re-signed with the Chiefs, but might need time working himself into playing shape. Thomas has been off the field since the Chiefs cut him Sept. 2 following the end of the preseason.


Nov 13 2017 - Rakeem Nunez-Roches
  DL Rakeem Nunez-Roches may be in line for more playing time in the near future following the release of DT Roy Miller. Nunez-Roches has played the tackle role in the past.


Nov 13 2017 - Albert Wilson
  WR Albert Wilson did not play in Week 9 against Dallas after aggravating his hamstring. Wilson also missed a game earlier this season with a sprained knee.


Nov 13 2017 - Tamba Hali
  LB Tamba Hali played 23 snaps against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9, and appears ready to contribute as a situational pass rusher for the Chiefs down the stretch. How much Hali works into the team's defensive game plan likely depends on how well his knees respond to playing time and the health of other pass rushers, especially LB Dee Ford who continues battling a sore back.


Nov 13 2017 - Allen Bailey
  DE Allen Bailey continues to improve, according to head coach Andy Reid, after leaving the team's last game against Dallas with a sprained MCL. But Reid did not indicate whether Bailey or any of team's other injured players would be on the field when the team returns to practice Wednesday.


Nov 13 2017 - Roy Miller
  DT Roy Miller was released by Kansas City on Monday, two days after he was arrested in Jacksonville, Fla., and charged with domestic battery of his wife. "We did release Roy and we're going to move on from that," Chiefs coach Andy Reid told reporters Monday, declining to answer further questions about Miller being waived. "I can't really talk about anything from a legal standpoint, so I'm going to just leave it at that." Miller, 30, is accused of dragging his wife by the hair, tearing a braid from her head and nearly ripping off her shirt, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office incident report.


Nov 11 2017 - Roy Miller
  DT Roy Miller of the Chiefs was arrested in Jacksonville, Fla., early Saturday morning and charged with domestic battery. Miller, 30, was taken into custody on suspicion of domestic battery and booked into the Duval County Jail at 4:53 a.m. ET, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Department of Corrections. The incident involved a minor injury, according to local news outlets. Miller was released on his own recognizance after an initial court appearance Saturday afternoon. Another hearing was set for Nov. 28. The 6-1, 301-pound Miller, playing in his ninth NFL season, has appeared in seven games this season and he made two tackles in the Chiefs' 28-17 loss to the Cowboys in Dallas last Sunday. He has six tackles on the season.


Nov 8 2017 - Albert Wilson
  WR Albert Wilson sat out Week 9 with a hamstring injury, and the Chiefs miss his contributions in both the run and pass games. The bye week provides Wilson essentially two weeks of rest before the team begins preparations for the New York Giants.


Nov 8 2017 - Laurent Duvernay-Tardif
  RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif returned to the line in Week 9 after missing four games with a sprained knee. The fourth-year lineman showed a little rust, and appeared in the locker room with ice on his left knee after the game.


Nov 8 2017 - Dee Ford
  LB Dee Ford continues battling back issues that have kept him out of three games this season and limited him to just two sacks and 10 tackles in six games. Ford's injury has contributed to a decline in the Chiefs' pass-rush this season, along with the absence of LB Tamba Hali and knee issues for LB Justin Houston. The bye week provides Ford with extra rest, but the back issue could linger.


Nov 8 2017 - Allen Bailey
  DL Allen Bailey suffered a sprained MCL in his knee against the Dallas Cowboys and underwent further examination in Kansas City before the team went on break for the bye week. The sprain could keep Bailey out a couple of weeks, although the bye week may help accelerate his recuperation time.


Nov 6 2017 - Albert Wilson
  WR Albert Wilson did not play Sunday after aggravating a hamstring injury last week against Denver. It's not known how long the injury will keep Wilson on the sideline.


Nov 6 2017 - Dee Ford
  LB Dee Ford missed his third game this season with back issues, and the team has yet to indicate a time table for his return. The team hopes the bye week provides additional rest for Ford heading to the season's stretch drive.


Nov 6 2017 - Laurent Duvernay-Tardif
  RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif returned to the starting lineup after missing four games with a sprained knee. Sunday's game marked the first time the Chiefs returned its opening-week lineup to the field since Week 2 of the season. Duvernay-Tardif received a flag for a false start and head coach Andy Reid said he showed some rust, but was pleased with his overall performance.


Nov 6 2017 - Tamba Hali
  LB Tamba Hali made his season debut Sunday against Dallas, playing 23 of the team's defensive snaps. The team wants to evaluate how Hali's knees respond to his playing time and hope the bye week provides a slow immersion back onto the field.


Nov 6 2017 - Allen Bailey
  DE Allen Bailey left Sunday's game with a sprained MCL in his knee. He briefly tried to return to the game without success. The plans are for Bailey to undergo additional tests to determine the extent of the damage.


Nov 6 2017 - Alex Smith
  QB Alex Smith posted among the strongest first halves of his career, completing 69.6 percent of his passes for 2,444 yards and 18 touchdowns in the team's first nine games. All those numbers put him well on pace for career highs.


Nov 6 2017 - Steven Nelson
  CB Steven Nelson played 64 of Kansas City's 67 defensive snaps in Sunday's 28-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, marking another step since his return from injured reserve with a core muscle injury.


Nov 6 2017 - Alex Smith
  QB Alex Smith's streak of 297 passes without an interception dating to last season ended Sunday against Dallas. Any chance for a Chiefs comeback ended on the team's next drive. Dallas safety Jeff Heath intercepted Smith to snuff out Kansas City's final scoring opportunity.


Nov 6 2017 - Tamba Hali
  LB Tamba Hali made his season debut after his return to practice from the physically unable to perform list on Thursday. The team added Hali to the active roster Saturday, waiving CB D.J. White. "I'll be honest with you, I was just sitting waiting," Hali said about the first half of the season. "I didn't know when I'd come back. That's just how it was the entire time."


Nov 4 2017 - Tamba Hali
  The Kansas City Chiefs activated linebacker Tamba Hali from the physically unable to perform list and added him to the active roster, the team announced Saturday. It is not known if Hali will play in Sunday's game against the host Dallas Cowboys (4-3). Hali, who has been working his way back from knee injuries, returned to practice Friday for the first time since the end of last season.


Nov 2 2017 - Harrison Butker
  K Harrison Butker made 18 field goals in October to claim AFC Special Teams Player of the Month honors on Thursday.


Nov 1 2017 - Demetrius Harris
  TE Demetrius Harris was limited in practice with a shoulder injury on Wednesday. The team did not report an issue with Harris following Monday's game, suggesting the injury may have taken place during Wednesday team drills.


Nov 1 2017 - Bennie Logan
  DT Bennie Logan remains on the team's injury report with a knee issue. Logan has experienced periodic swelling in his knee since training camp.


Nov 1 2017 - Mitch Morse
  C Mitch Morse remains on the team's injury report despite his return Monday night from a sprained foot. Morse was a full participant in practice and expects to start Sunday against the Cowboys.


Nov 1 2017 - Bryan Witzmann
  LG Bryan Witzmann practiced in full Wednesday despite an abdominal injury. The team did not report the injury following Monday night's game, and it remains unclear if Witzmann sustained the injury during the game or in a recent team workout activity.


Nov 1 2017 - Laurent Duvernay-Tardif
  RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif practiced in full Wednesday for the first time since spraining his knee during Week 4. His return to a full workload likely signals his return to the starting lineup Sunday against Dallas.


Nov 1 2017 - Justin Houston
  LB Justin Houston remains limited in practice while the team continues allowing the veteran to rest his surgically repaired knee. It appears the Chiefs plan to limit Houston's practice work for the foreseeable future.


Nov 1 2017 - Albert Wilson
  WR Albert Wilson strained a hamstring Monday night against Denver and did not practice Wednesday. The Chiefs' offense struggled recently following Wilson's absence with a sprained knee. He holds the largest net yards over average with a differential of 1.71 yards per play.


Nov 1 2017 - Dee Ford
  LB Dee Ford did not practice Wednesday and is undergoing tests on his back to determine how long the pass-rush specialist may be out. Ford left Monday's game against Denver after aggravating a back injury that kept him out of two games earlier this season.


Oct 31 2017 - Justin Houston
  LB Justin Houston was limited in practice last week as the team gave the veteran pass rusher extended time off to rest his knee. Houston underwent surgery on his ACL in February 2016, and the knee continues to cause occasional swelling. The team used the 10 off days since their last game against Oakland to provide Houston with time off. The team also has a bye week following this week's game against Dallas.


Oct 31 2017 - Mitch Morse
  C Mitch Morse returned to the team's offensive line after missing five games with a sprained foot. His return allowed backup Zach Fulton to slide to right guard, where Laurent Duvernay Tardiff missed his fourth game with a sprained knee. He appears on target to return as soon as this week against Dallas.


Oct 31 2017 - Albert Wilson
  WR Albert Wilson left Monday night's game early with a hamstring injury. Wilson battled a sprained knee in recent weeks that kept him out of the team's Week 6 loss to Pittsburgh. Wilson remains the most experienced wideout among the Chiefs' young receivers group. He has 17 catches for 221 yards and two touchdowns this season.


Oct 31 2017 - Dee Ford
  LB Dee Ford left Monday night's game with tightness in his back, according to head coach Andy Reid. Ford missed two games earlier this season with what the team termed back spasms. His availability for next week's game at Dallas remains unclear. Ford has two sacks in six games this season along with 13 tackles.
