 Latest Chiefs Player Notes
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 - Horace Richardson
  CB Horace Richardson was signed by the Chiefs to the practice squad Wednesday (Dec. 5). He had been released by the Lions from the practice squad Nov. 21.


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.


Dec 3 2018 - Eric Fisher
  LT Eric Fisher left Sunday's game for three plays after appearing to get poked in the eye. After a shoulder injury early in his career, Fisher has emerged as an ironman for the Chiefs. He's played in 81 consecutive regular-season games, the third-longest current active streak among offensive lineman following teammate Mitchell Schwartz and Tennessee's Ben Jones at 108 consecutive games played.


Dec 3 2018 - Mitch Morse
  C Mitch Morse returned to the lineup against Oakland after a five-game absence with a concussion. Coach Andy Reid said Morse played well in his return, and he appears a fixture in the lineup going forward if healthy.


Dec 3 2018 - Anthony Hitchens
  LB Anthony Hitchens briefly exited Sunday's game with a quad injury, but the issue isn't expected to keep him out of the lineup in against Baltimore. Hitchens continues nursing a bruised rib as well.


Dec 3 2018 - Sammy Watkins
  WR Sammy Watkins (right foot injury) didn't play against Oakland. The Chiefs continue stressing the injury doesn't appear serious but does need rest. His availability at practice on Wednesday should indicate if he'll return to the lineup in Week 14 against Baltimore.


Dec 3 2018 - Gehrig Dieter
  WR Gehrig Dieter worked his way into the receiver rotation with seven snaps in Week 13 in his NFL debut. He rotated in as the fourth wide receiver.


Dec 3 2018 - Charcandrick West
  RB Charcandrick West will rejoin the Kansas City Chiefs, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. The 27-year-old West will join former teammate Spencer Ware in the backfield as the Chiefs attempt to move on from Kareem Hunt, who was released by the club after a video showed him pushing and kicking a woman in February. West, who was signed and released by the New York Jets this season, worked out for the Chiefs on Monday with fellow running back C.J. Anderson.


Dec 2 2018 - Spencer Ware
  RB Spencer Ware stepped into the starting lineup in place of released Kareem Hunt, picking up 47 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries.


Dec 2 2018 - Patrick Mahomes
  QB Patrick Mahomes completed 23 of 38 passes for 295 yards. His fourth touchdown of the day, a 2-yard toss to wide receiver Chris Conley inside the two-minute warning provide the winning cushion. Mahomes leads the league with 41 touchdown passes, becoming the ninth quarterback with at least 40 touchdown passes in a season. He's also the youngest quarterback to reach that mark, besting Dan Marino by two days.


Dec 2 2018 - Travis Kelce
  TE Travis Kelce delivered career bests with 12 catches for 168 yards and matching his career-high with two touchdown catches against the Raiders. Kelce has 1,082 receiving yards on the season, making him the second tight end in league history with three-straight 1,000-yard seasons. Kelce is closing in on his career high of 1,125 yards which he reached in 2016.


Nov 28 2018 - Dorian O'Daniel
  LB Dorian O'Daniel has solidified his role as the team's dime linebacker and is often coming in for starter Reggie Ragland during passing downs. The rookie played a season-high 43 defensive snaps in each of his last two games.


Nov 28 2018 - Anthony Hitchens
  LB Anthony Hitchens practiced in full on Wednesday but remains on the team's injury report with a bruised rib he suffered in Week 8 against Denver. The issue doesn't expect to impact his availability against Oakland this week.


Nov 28 2018 - Laurent Duvernay-Tardif
  RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif has moved into the next phase of his rehabilitation, and head coach Andy Reid says there's a possibility he could return from injured reserve later in the season. Duvernay-Tardif no longer has a cast on his left leg and no longer needs a scooter for mobility.


Nov 28 2018 - Mitch Morse
  C Mitch Morse has cleared the league's concussion protocol and returned to practice in a limited role on Wednesday. Head coach Andy Reid said the team remains pleased with the performance of backup Austin Reiter, and plans to work Morse back in slowly.


Nov 28 2018 - Sammy Watkins
  WR Sammy Watkins did not practice on Wednesday. He's continuing to nurse a foot injury suffered in Week 9 at Cleveland. He played just five snaps during the Week 11 Monday night game against the Rams.


Nov 28 2018 - Kelvin Benjamin
  WR Kelvin Benjamin is clearly being phased out as he played a season-low 40 percent of the snaps against the Jaguars and had just one catch for 32 yards.


Nov 28 2018 - Eric Berry
  S Eric Berry participated in practice on Wednesday for the first time since August. "We'll see how he does and we'll ease him back into it," Chiefs coach Andy Reid told reporters prior to Wednesday's practice. "The communication has been great. ... We'll see how he does. He and I will talk. We'll talk with the (doctor) and the trainers." Reid said that he is not certain if Berry will play for the Chiefs (9-2) in their road game against the Oakland Raiders (2-9) on Sunday (4:05 p.m. ET).


Nov 26 2018 - Patrick Mahomes
  QB Patrick Mahomes tweaked his foot during the team's Week 10 win against Arizona, but the injury did not seem to slow him during his performance against the Los Angeles Rams last week. Mahomes split his time between Kansas City and his home in Texas during the bye week over the Thanksgiving holiday.


Nov 26 2018 - Mitch Morse
  C Mitch Morse remains in the league's concussion protocol. The team will reevaluate Morse's status when the team returns to work following the bye week on Tuesday with a determination of his practice availability on Wednesday.


Nov 26 2018 - Tyreek Hill
  WR Tyreek Hill received a fine of $10,026 fine for flashing the peace sign at the end of a touchdown catch against the Rams in Week 11. Hill received a penalty for taunting on the play. Hill has flashed the same celebratory gesture on several occasions without drawing a penalty or fine.


Nov 26 2018 - Eric Murray
  S Eric Murray received a fine of $26,739 for an unnecessary roughness penalty he drew following a hit on Rams WR Robert Woods during their Week 11 contest. Head coach Andy Reid indicated he expects the third-year safety to appeal the fine.


Nov 26 2018 - Sammy Watkins
  WR Sammy Watkins continues dealing with a right foot injury that kept him out of the team's 54-51 loss at Los Angeles in Week 11. Head coach Andy Reid said the foot remains tender, and the team plans to re-evaluate Watkins on Wednesday.


Nov 19 2018 - Gehrig Dieter
  WR Gehrig Dieter was signed by the Chiefs from their practice squad Monday (Nov. 19).


Nov 17 2018 - Sammy Watkins
  WR Sammy Watkins did not practice again Saturday, dimming his prospects of playing in Monday's night's showdown at the Los Angeles Rams. Watkins has been dealing a foot injury that forced him to sit out last week's 26-14 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. An MRI exam taken in the week leading up to the Arizona game did not reveal any structural damage to the foot. Watkins was listed as questionable on Saturday's injury report. On Thursday, Watkins was able to practice on a limited basis but he did not take the field Friday or Saturday. That's an ominous sign that he will not face his former team on Monday night.


Nov 16 2018 - Patrick Mahomes
  QB Patrick Mahomes appeared on the team's injury report Thursday with a foot issue, but he was listed as a full participant.


Nov 16 2018 - Anthony Hitchens
  LB Anthony Hitchens practiced on Thursday after sitting out last week's game with bruised ribs. He expects to return to the starting lineup Monday night against the Los Angeles Rams.


Nov 16 2018 - Mitch Morse
  C Mitch Morse remains in the league's concussion protocol and did not practice on Thursday. Morse hasn't played since leaving the team's Oct. 14 game at New England. It appears likely Morse won't return to action until at least following next week's bye.


Nov 16 2018 - Eric Berry
  S Eric Berry did not practice on Thursday, making it likely his season debut will not come until after the bye week and no earlier than Week 13. Berry hasn't not practiced with the club since Aug. 11 due to a heel injury and hasn't played in a game since Week 1 of the 2017 season.


Nov 16 2018 - Sammy Watkins
  WR Sammy Watkins returned to practice on Thursday on a limited basis, but he appears ready to go against the Los Angeles Rams Monday night. Watkins injured his right foot during the fourth quarter at Cleveland in Week 9 and sat out the team's victory Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.


Nov 12 2018 - Patrick Mahomes
  QB Patrick Mahomes did not appear in the locker after Sunday's win due to the death of his girlfriend's stepfather during the game. Head coach Andy Reid does not anticipate the quarterback missing any preparation for this week's game against the Rams.


Nov 12 2018 - Laurent Duvernay-Tardif
  RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif is scheduled to have his cast removed this week on his left leg after following surgery Oct. 15 for a fracture fibula and ligament damage in his ankle. The team expects a better idea for a timetable for his potential return after removing the cast, but the lineman remains hopeful he can return later this season. Durvernay-Tardif is eligible to return to practice as early as Week 12 but can return from injured reserve no earlier than Week 14.


Nov 12 2018 - Mitch Morse
  C Mitch Morse missed his fourth-straight game on Sunday after suffering a concussion in Week 6. He remains in the league's concussion protocol, and head coach Andy Reid indicated he remained symptomatic last week. There's not timetable on his return. Austin Reiter started his third game at center filling in for Morse.


Nov 12 2018 - Sammy Watkins
  WR Sammy Watkins did not play Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals with a right foot injury. Head coach Andy Reid expects Watkins to play in Week 11 against the Los Angeles Rams.


Nov 12 2018 - Anthony Hitchens
  LB Anthony Hitchens was active Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals but did not play. The Chiefs kept Hitchens available for emergency purposes only. Hitchens suffered bruised ribs during the team's Week 8 win over the Denver Broncos, and the team wanted to provide him additional rest for next week's Monday night matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.


Nov 12 2018 - Kelvin Benjamin
  WR Kelvin Benjamin continues to be a disappointment. He was targeted three times and did not catch a pass, dropping one in the end zone that was right in his hands.
