He briefly left the game following a collision with teammate Ramik Wilson.
|Sep 17 2017 - Kareem Hunt|
RB Kareem Hunt had two second-half touchdowns Sunday in the Chiefs' win over the Eagles.

|Sep 13 2017 - C.J. Spiller|
RB C.J. Spiller returned to the Chiefs for the second time following his release in the last two weeks.
The Chiefs released Spiller after the the cutdown to 53 players, which allowed the Chiefs to move cornerback Steven Nelson to injured reserve with a potential designation to return. He re-signed the next day. The team released Spiller a second time on Thursday, just before the season opener against New England. That means that Spiller, as a vested veteran, does not have a guaranteed contract for the 2017 season.
|Sep 13 2017 - Daniel Sorensen|
S Daniel Sorensen may pick up some of the slack in Eric Berry's absence, but coaches indicated they want to maintain Sorensen's role as an in-the-box safety in run situations and on special teams.

Berry, 28, suffered the injury while covering New England tight end Rob Gronkowski in the fourth quarter. He began hobbling as the play concluded, was treated on the field and eventually carted off to the locker room. The Chiefs feared a major injury and an MRI exam conducted Friday confirmed the seriousness. Berry had four interceptions -- returning two for touchdowns -- along with 77 tackles last season.

The team expects to slowly work Ragland into the lineup, hoping he can be a key contributor during the second half of the season.
|Sep 6 2017 - Demetrius Harris|
TE Demetrius Harris could play a critical role in Thursdays' game against the Patriots.
In the last meeting between the two teams, the Patriots bracketed TE Travis Kelce, and they expect again to key in on Kelce and WR Tyreek Hill. That could mean single coverage for receivers such as Harris, given the Chiefs' propensity for multiple tight-end sets. Harris dropped six passes last season on 31 targets. His drop percentage of 19.4 percent was the highest of any player with more than 10 targets.
