 Latest Chiefs Player Notes
Dec 31 2018 - Jordan Lucas
  S Jordan Lucas left Sunday's game with a stinger. He started in place of injured Eric Berry alongside Daniel Sorensen in the team's secondary. Lucas has started four games for the club this season and has seen his role expanded during the last two weeks of the season as the team's dime safety.


Dec 31 2018 - Derrick Nnadi
  DT Derrick Nnadi sustained a concussion during Sunday's win against Oakland. This year's third-round draft pick has played an increasing role in the defense, particularly in run situations. He remains in the league's concussion protocol.


Dec 31 2018 - Laurent Duvernay-Tardif
  LG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif could return to the team from injured reserve as soon as next week. His recovery from a fractured fibula and ligament damage in his ankle remains ahead of schedule. The Chiefs have until Jan. 15 to return the offensive lineman to the active roster or leave him on injured reserve for the remainder of the season.


Dec 31 2018 - Sammy Watkins
  WR Sammy Watkins hasn't played since Week 11 against the Los Angeles Rams on Nov. 19, but the Chiefs have circled the postseason for his anticipated return. Watkins suffered a right foot injury in Week 9. He had been wearing a protective boot until last week, but head coach Andy Reid described his current status as day-to-day.


Dec 31 2018 - Eric Berry
  S Eric Berry sat out the season finale against Oakland after his chronic heel pain flared up late in the week. The club hopes that an additional week of rest will allow Berry to return for the Divisional Playoff game Jan. 12.


Dec 25 2018 - Patrick Mahomes
  QB Patrick Mahomes, who could be the NFL's most valuable player in his first full season as a starter, passed for 281 yards and touchdowns of 67 yards to Tyreek Hill and 89 yards to Demarcus Robinson Sunday. Mahomes finished the season with 5,097 passing yards and 50 touchdown passes, to join Peyton Manning, previously the only player in NFL history to reach both of those numbers in the same year.


Dec 28 2018 - Damien Williams
  RB Damien Williams was signed to a contract extension, the team announced Friday. The team did not reveal terms of the deal for Williams, but the Kansas City Star reported that it was a two-year contract worth a maximum of $8.1 million. Prior to Hunt's dismissal, Williams had three carries for only one yard this season. In the four games since, he has rushed for 204 yards and three scores on 36 attempts while hauling in 19 receptions for two more touchdowns.


Dec 26 2018 - Laurent Duvernay-Tardif
  RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif returned to practice this week, starting his three-week window to practice with the team before potentially returning from injured reserve. Duvernay-Tardif hasn't played since Week 5 after suffering a fibula fracture and ligament damage in his ankle.


Dec 26 2018 - Dee Ford
  LB Dee Ford was limited in practice Wednesday with a knee injury. Ford briefly left Sunday night's game against Seattle with an apparent knee injury but later returned to action.


Dec 26 2018 - Eric Berry
  S Eric Berry played 69 snaps Sunday night against Seattle, and appears close to returning to full duty for the team's postseason run. It's unclear if the Chiefs plan to play Berry for the full game during the season finale against Oakland or continuing limiting his snap count.


Dec 26 2018 - Kendall Fuller
  CB Kendall Fuller practiced in full on Wednesday for the first time since undergoing thumb surgery earlier this month. Fuller did not play Sunday against Seattle but it was a game-time decision. Fuller expects to be available for the Week 17 finale against Oakland.


Dec 26 2018 - Sammy Watkins
  WR Sammy Watkins is out of the protecting walking boot he wore as a precautionary measure while nursing a right foot injury. Watkins doesn't expect to play in the Week 17 finale against Oakland, but the Chiefs remain hopeful Watkins may be able to return for the team's postseason run.


Dec 24 2018 - Orlando Scandrick
  CB Orlando Scandrick did not play Sunday night as a coach's decision after spending the first 14 games of the season as the team's nickel cornerback. Rookie Charvarius Ward claimed Scandrick's spot in the lineup and appears likely to play alongside starting corners Kendall Fuller and Steven Nelson in Week 17.


Dec 24 2018 - Ron Parker
  S Ron Parker was among the team's inactive players Sunday against Seattle. That marked the first game Parker missed in six seasons in six seasons with the Chiefs. Daniel Sorensen started alongside Eric Berry in the secondary with Jordan Lucas filling in as the dime safety.


Dec 24 2018 - Cameron Erving
  LG Cam Erving was active but did not play against Seattle. Erving sat out the team's Week 15 contest against the Los Angeles Chargers, but was a full participant in practice during the week and did not carry a game status designation on the final injury report. Veteran Jeff Allen started at left guard for the second-straight game.


Dec 24 2018 - Eric Berry
  S Eric Berry played 69 of the team's 80 defensive snaps, but he sat out the team's final defensive stand as Seattle marched 75 yards in eight plays for the game-winning touchdown. The Chiefs have ramped up Berry's playing time over the last two games in preparation for full duty during the postseason.


Dec 24 2018 - *Kendall Fuller
  CB Kendall Fuller did not play Sunday against Seattle after surgery last week for a thumb injury. He was scratched as a game-time decision with rookie Tremon Smith stepping into the lineup in his place. The Chiefs hope Fuller can return for the season finale against Oakland.


Dec 19 2018 - Kendall Fuller
  CB Kendall Fuller did not practice on Wednesday but did appear on the field with a helmet during the team's stretching period of practice. Fuller underwent thumb surgery on Friday, but head coach Andy Reid expects him to play Sunday night against Seattle.


Dec 19 2018 - Sammy Watkins
  WR Sammy Watkins remains on the sidelines with a right foot injury and did not practice on Wednesday. The Chiefs remain focused on ensuring Watkins can return at full strength for the playoffs. That should mean an increasingly larger role for newly acquired WR Kelvin Benjamin during the final two games of the regular season.


Dec 19 2018 - Spencer Ware
  RB Spencer Ware returned to practice in a limited role Wednesday after a hamstring injury kept him out of last Thursdays' loss against the Los Angeles Chargers. Head coach Andy Reid said that when Ware returns he expects him to share the load in a backfield by committee with Damien Williams.


Dec 19 2018 - Tyreek Hill
  WR Tyreek Hill was a full participant in practice on Wednesday after being limited with a foot injury last week. He continues wearing additional tape and wrapping on his right foot.


Dec 19 2018 - Mitchell Schwartz
  RT Mitchell Schwartz injured his left knee during last Thursday's loss against the Los Angeles Chargers. He did not exit the game, however, continuing his streak of never missing an offensive snap in his career. He did not practice on Wednesday and his status for Sunday's trip to Seattle remains up in the air.


Dec 17 2018 - Laurent Duvernay-Tardif
  RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif remains on injured reserve while recovering from a fractured fibula and ligament damage in his ankle. He continues wearing a walking boot and remains ahead of schedule in his recovery, but head coach Andy Reid said he's not ready to return yet. If Duvernay-Tardif returns this season, it may not occur until the postseason.


Dec 17 2018 - Cameron Erving
  LG Cam Erving missed last week's game against the Chargers with a knee injury, but head coach Andy Reid said the lineman continues making good progress in his recovery. Veteran Jeff Allen started in Erving's place against Los Angeles.


Dec 17 2018 - Spencer Ware
  RB Spencer Ware suffered shoulder and hamstring injuries in Week 14 against Baltimore, but it's the hamstring issue causing the most concern for Chiefs. Head coach Andy Reid said it's not a severe injury, but it did impact Ware's ability to open up for the game against the Chargers in Week 15. The team plans to evaluate his status on day-by-day basis and hasn't ruled out his return this week against Seattle.


Dec 17 2018 - Sammy Watkins
  WR Sammy Watkins continues his recovery from a right foot injury, which head coach Andy Reid describes as a day-to-day injury. Watkins has missed each of the team's last three games and his status for the club's Week 16 trip to Seattle remains in doubt.


Dec 17 2018 - *Kendall Fuller
  CB Kendall Fuller underwent thumb surgery on Friday, but the Chiefs do not expect the injury to keep him sidelined during his recovery. Fuller injured his thumb against Baltimore in Week 14 and played with a temporary cast on his right hand Thursday night against the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chiefs expect Fuller to play against Seattle with a cast on his hand.


Dec 14 2018 - *Kendall Fuller
  CB Kendall Fuller of the Kansas City Chiefs played through what is believed to be a broken wrist against the Los Angeles Chargers and had surgery on Friday morning, the NFL Network reported. Fuller will be out for an undetermined length of time, a blow to the Kansas City defense because he is perhaps the best player in a secondary that has allowed the most yards in the NFL this season.


Dec 12 2018 - Kelvin Benjamin
  WR Kelvin Benjamin will likely make his Chiefs debut Thursday night against the Los Angeles Chargers. Benjamin expects to play in a limited role as the club works him into the offense.


Dec 12 2018 - Sammy Watkins
  WR Sammy Watkins remains on the sideline with a right foot injury and was declared out against the Los Angeles Chargers on Thursday night. The injury could also impact his availability for the final two games of the season at Seattle and against Oakland.


Dec 12 2018 - Patrick Mahomes
  QB Patrick Mahomes appears on the team's injury report with an injury to his left wrist. It's on his non-throwing arm and doesn't expect to have any impact on his availability for Thursday night's game.


Dec 12 2018 - Cameron Erving
  LG Cam Erving left Sunday's game with a knee injury and did not return. The Chiefs held him out of practice on Tuesday, with veteran Jeff Allen likely to start in his place if Erving remains sidelined. Irving was listed as doubtful on Wednesday's injury report.


Dec 12 2018 - Spencer Ware
  RB Spencer Ware did not practice on Tuesday after suffering both shoulder and hamstring injuries Sunday against Baltimore. Ware initially returned after the shoulder injury, but he tweaked his hamstring late in the fourth quarter and did not return afterward. The Chiefs appear ready for Damien Williams to start in the event Ware doesn't play. Ware is listed as doubtful on Wednesday's injury report.


Dec 12 2018 - Tyreek Hill
  WR Tyreek Hill played a limited role in practice Tuesday but appears on track to play Thursday night against the Los Angeles Chargers. Hill suffered both a wrist and a heel injury against Baltimore Sunday, but it's the heel injury causing the most concern. Head coach Andy Reid said he expects Hill to play against the Chargers, although he was listed as questionable on Wednesday's injury report.


Dec 12 2018 - Eric Berry
  S Eric Berry was limited in practice on Tuesday, and the Chiefs remain noncommittal on whether he will play Thursday night against the Los Angeles Chargers. His return this week would allow additional rest before the Chiefs play again in Week 16 at Seattle. Berry was listed as questionable on Wednesday's injury report.


Dec 10 2018 - Spencer Ware
  RB Spencer Ware exited Sunday's game with a shoulder injury but he returned and finished with 75 yards. He has a short week to get ready for the Chargers on Thursday.


Dec 10 2018 - Tyreek Hill
  WR Tyreek Hill returned to Sunday's game against the Ravens after leaving before halftime with a heel injury. After the game, he wasn't sure of his status for the Chargers game on Thursday. Hill had eight receptions for 139 yards, including a 48-yard catch on a late fourth-down play.


Dec 10 2018 - Eric Berry
  SS Eric Berry, out with a heel injury, could get his first playing time since Week 1 of the 2017 season against the Chargers on Thursday. "We will just see how it goes these next couple of day," said Andy Reid. "But there's a chance."


Dec 10 2018 - Patrick Mahomes
  QB Patrick Mahomes threw for 377 yards and two touchdowns against the Ravens, the NFL's top-ranked defense, with the highlight a 17-yard no-look pass to Demarcus Robinson right before the half. Mahomes needs 292 passing yards to break Trent Green's franchise mark of 4,591 in a single season.


Dec 9 2018 - Patrick Mahomes
  QB Patrick Mahomes finished 35-of-53 for 377 yards and two touchdowns along with an interception. That included delivering 14-of-20 passing for 153 yards in fourth quarter and the overtime period. He now has 4,300 passing yards on the season, making him the second-youngest quarterback in league history behind Dan Marino with at least 4,000 passing yards and 40 touchdown passes in the same season.


Dec 8 2018 - Eric Murray
  S Eric Murray was fined $13,369 for unsportsmanlike conduct on Saturday.


Dec 7 2018 - Sammy Watkins
  WR Sammy Watkins could be out at least a month, the Kansas City Star reported. Watkins, who underwent an MRI exam last month, reportedly aggravated the injury in Thursday's practice. He sat out last week's 40-33 win at Oakland and a Week 10 matchup against Arizona. Watkins has 40 receptions -- one more than his season total with the Rams in 2017 -- for 519 yards and three touchdowns for the Chiefs.


Dec 7 2018 - Kelvin Benjamin
  WR Kelvin Benjamin was signed by the Chiefs on Friday. Benjamin, who was released by the Buffalo Bills earlier this week, reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the Chiefs, owners of the best record in the AFC at 10-2. The 6-foot-5, 250-pound Benjamin had just 23 receptions for 354 yards and one touchdown in 12 games (10 starts) with Buffalo this season, and had just seven receptions for 92 yards in his final four games.


Dec 6 2018 - Kelvin Benjamin
  WR Kelvin Benjamin, who was released earlier this week by the Buffalo Bills, is set to sign a one-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs, multiple media outlets reported Thursday night. After being waived by the Bills on Tuesday, Benjamin went unclaimed on waivers Wednesday, making him a free agent. He had just 23 receptions for 354 yards and one touchdown with Buffalo this season, and had just seven receptions for 92 yards in his final four games.


Dec 6 2018 - Alex Smith
  QB Alex Smith is dealing with an infection related to last month's season-ending surgery, multiple media outlets reported Thursday. Smith is battling an infection that resulted from surgery to repair a broken fibula and tibia that he suffered in a loss to the Houston Texans on Nov. 18, the NFL Network reported, citing sources. The Redskins released a statement Thursday asking for privacy on behalf of Smith and his family as unconfirmed stories started to circulate on social media about the severity of the infection. Smith suffered the two broken bones in his leg in the second half against Houston after he was sacked by the Texans' Kareem Jackson and J.J. Watt.


Dec 5 2018 - Kelvin Benjamin
  WR Kelvin Benjamin had seen a decrease in his playing time to 40 percent of the snaps against Jacksonville, a season low, but after going back up to 60 percent against the Dolphins, he had only two catches for 20 yards. That was enough for the front office, so Benjamin was released on Tuesday, ending a disappointing 18-game tenure in Buffalo.


Dec 4 2018 - Kelvin Benjamin
  WR Kelvin Benjamin was placed on waivers by the Bills Tuesday (Dec. 4).


Dec 4 2018 - Kelvin Benjamin
  WR Kelvin Benjamin was released by the Bills on Tuesday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Benjamin was second on the team in receiving yards this season with 354 yards on 23 receptions. Benjamin has played in 12 games this season and started 10 of them. A first-round draft pick in 2014, Benjamin's best season was his rookie year in 2014, when he had 73 receptions for 1,008 yards and nine touchdowns while playing for the Carolina Panthers. The Bills acquired Benjamin in October of 2017 in a trade with Carolina that sent Buffalo's third- and seventh-round picks in in the 2019 draft to the Panthers.


Dec 3 2018 - Charcandrick West
  RB Charcandrick West was signed by the Chiefs Monday (Dec. 3). His contract had been terminated by the Chiefs Aug. 22 and by the Jets Sept. 1.


Dec 3 2018 - Eric Berry
  S Eric Berry worked with the first team defense in a limited role in his return to practice and appears close to returning to the line. The Chiefs are targeting either this week's game against Baltimore or a Thursday night game in Week 15 against the Chargers for his season debut. Berry hasn't played this season due to recurring heel pain.
