 Latest Chiefs Player Notes
Jan 15 2018 - Darrelle Revis
  CB Darrelle Revis told ESPN he felt he played well enough to continue his playing career next season. Revis, 33, signed with the Kansas City Chiefs on Nov. 23 and appeared in five regular-season games, along with the 22-21 loss to the Tennessee Titans in the wild card round on Jan. 6. He recorded 11 combined tackles in the regular season, along with two passes defended.


Jan 12 2018 - Alex Smith
  QB Alex Smith was named as a replacement for Philip Rivers of the Los Angeles Chargers on the AFC roster for the upcoming Pro Bowl, the team announced Friday.Smith will be making his third Pro Bowl appearance and join teammates Kareem Hunt, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill in the game on Jan. 28. The 33-year-old Smith set career highs in passing yards (4,042), touchdowns (26) and passer rating (104.7) during the 2017 season. He was talked about as a possible NFL MVP candidate after a fast start before the Chiefs dropped six of seven to effectively end that conversation.Smith completed 24 of 33 passes for 264 yards and two touchdowns in last week's 22-21 loss to the Tennessee Titans in the AFC wild-card round.


Jan 10 2018 - Albert Wilson
  WR Albert Wilson set career highs with 42 catches for 554 yards and three touchdowns in just 13 games during his fourth season. His value in Kansas City's offense goes beyond the role of pass-catcher, however, with the gritty 5-foot-9 Wilson using his speed in the team's motion and jet sweep packages and bringing a fiery attitude to the field.


Jan 10 2018 - Kareem Hunt
  RB Kareem Hunt captured the NFL rushing title and set a league record by topping 100 yards from scrimmage in each of his first seven games as a pro.


Jan 10 2018 - De'Anthony Thomas
  WR De'Anthony Thomas turned in another below-expectations season. Thomas caught just 14 passes for 143 yards and lost his job as the team's top kickoff returner. Thomas unfortunately suffered a serious leg injury in the regular-season finale, undergoing surgery for a broken leg. With Thomas wrapping up the final year of his rookie contract, this looks like the end of the road for his time in Kansas City.


Jan 10 2018 - Tyreek Hill
  WR Tyreek Hill blossomed into a No. 1 wide receiver with a 1,000-yard season.


Jan 10 2018 - Travis Kelce
  TE Travis Kelce turned in another 1,000-yard season before sustaining a concussion in the playoff loss to Tennessee.


Jan 10 2018 - Alex Smith
  QB Alex Smith turned in the best season of his career with 4,042 yards passing and 26 touchdowns.


Jan 8 2018 - Kareem Hunt
  RB Kareem Hunt had only 11 carries for 42 yards, including just five touches in the second half.


Jan 8 2018 - Alex Smith
  QB Alex Smith did enough to win most games, but not this one. Smith delivered an efficient 23-of-33 passing effort for 264 yards and two touchdowns, mostly in an impressive first half. But when the Chiefs need just one play in the second half to sustain a drive or get into field-goal range at the end of the game, Smith and his receivers couldn't get the job done.


Jan 8 2018 - Laurent Duvernay-Tardif
  RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif plans to hit the books to study for his final examination in the process of becoming a medical doctor back home in Canada. Duvernay-Tardif will head to Canada soon to start studying. He started medical school in 2010 at McGill University in Montreal. "Basically, the only thing I've got left in terms of my medical career in order to get my M.D. is to pass the board exam, which is a national board exam that happens around May," Tardif said. "That gives me around three months, three and a half months to study for that exam."


Jan 8 2018 - Demarcus Robinson
  WR Demarcus Robinson entered the league's concussion protocol after a collision late in Saturday's game.


Jan 8 2018 - Travis Kelce
  TE Travis Kelce left Saturday's game late in the first half with a concussion after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit from Titans S Johnathan Cyprien. Head coach Andy Reid said Kelce appeared recovering well after the game, and he expected Kelce could have played in the divisional round of the playoffs had the Chiefs advanced.


Jan 8 2018 - Chris Jones
  DL Chris Jones suffered a knee injury on the opening play of the second half of the team's wild-card game against Tennessee. Jones suffered a torn MCL, an injury that expects to limit his offseason workouts. Jones started training camp this season on the physically unable to perform list after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery in July following a workout injury.


Jan 6 2018 - Alex Smith
  QB Alex Smith passed for 264 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 22-21 loss to Tennessee. Smith passed for only 33 yards in the second half.


Jan 6 2018 - Travis Kelce
  TE Travis Kelce caught a 13-yard touchdown pass before leaving Saturday's 22-21 loss to Tennessee in the first half with a concussion and did not return. Kelce was administered a helmet-to-helmet hit by S Johnathan Cyprien after a 12-yard reception.


Jan 6 2018 - Kareem Hunt
  RB Kareem Hunt scored on a 1-yard run in Saturday's 22-21 loss to Tennessee.


Jan 6 2018 - Demarcus Robinson
  WR Demarcus Robinson caught a 14-yard touchdown pass in Saturday's 22-21 loss to Tennessee. The score put the Chiefs ahead 21-3.


Jan 6 2018 - Chris Jones
  DL Chris Jones left Saturday's 22-21 loss to Tennessee with a knee injury and did not return.


Jan 6 2018 - Albert Wilson
  Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Albert Wilson was active for Saturday afternoon's AFC wild-card game against the visiting Tennessee Titans. Wilson's status was up in the air all week as he dealt with a hamstring injury that led the Chiefs to list him as questionable. The fourth-year wideout finished fourth on the team with a career-best 42 receptions despite sitting out three games.


Jan 4 2018 - Harrison Butker
  K Harrison Butker was the AFC Special Teams Player of the Month after going 15-for-18 on field-goal attempts and a perfect 28-for-28 on extra-point tries.


Jan 3 2018 - Marcus Kemp
  WR Marcus Kemp was promoted to fill De'Anthony Thomas' roster spot, and the Chiefs plan to use him on several special team units.


Jan 3 2018 - Phillip Gaines
  CB Phillip Gaines went on injured reserve Wednesday with a dislocated elbow suffered Sunday against Denver. Gaines, a healthy scratch in Weeks 15 and 16, will miss the rest of the season.


Jan 3 2018 - Akeem Hunt
  RB Akeem Hunt, who went on injured reserve on Tuesday, suffered a broken ankle during the team's season finale against Denver. The team hoped Hunt only suffered a sprain, but further tests revealed the fracture.


Jan 3 2018 - Cameron Erving
  OL Cameron Erving suffered a shoulder injury during Sunday's season finale, but appears likely ready for reserve duty this weekend against Tennessee.


Jan 3 2018 - Charcandrick West
  RB Charcandrick West returned to practice in full this week after missing the season finale with the flu. The Chiefs listed several players on the injury report the last few weeks with an illness, but only West appears on the report this week. West could see duty as a kickoff returner in addition to his role as backup to RB Kareem Hunt.


Jan 3 2018 - Eric Fisher
  LT Eric Fisher practiced in full this week despite appearing on the injury report with a back injury. It's unclear when the injury affected Fisher, who played only special teams snaps during the season finale. He appears ready to play this weekend, however.


Jan 3 2018 - Tamba Hali
  LB Tamba Hali sat out practice on Wednesday as part of his regular schedule. The Chiefs expect him to be available for the game Saturday.


Jan 3 2018 - Jarvis Jenkins
  DL Jarvis Jenkins missed practice for the second straight day with what head coach Andy Reid termed swelling in his knee following Sunday's game at Denver. The cautious treatment of Jenkins' knee is worrisome, but it doesn't rule out his availability for Saturday.


Jan 3 2018 - Rakeem Nunez-Roches
  DL Rakeem Nunez-Roches missed practice for the second straight day Wednesday with an ankle injury. The Chiefs remain vague on his availability for Saturday's playoff game, but the addition of free-agent DT Stefan Charles indicates some concern about the depth of the team's defensive line heading to the postseason.


Jan 3 2018 - Albert Wilson
  WR Albert Wilson returned to practice Wednesday after missing a day of practice with a tight hamstring. The club listed Wilson as limited in practice, but expects him to play Sunday's against Tennessee.


Jan 3 2018 - Stefan Charles
  DT Stefan Charles was signed to fill CB Phillips Gaines' roster spot with the Kansas City Chiefs on Wednesday. The 29-year-old Charles has collected 60 tackles, five sacks and two forced fumbles in 49 career games with the Tennessee Titans, Buffalo Bills, Detroit Lions and Jacksonville Jaguars.


Jan 3 2018 - Phillip Gaines
  CB Phillip Gaines was placed on injured reserve with a dislocated elbow, the team announced Wednesday. Gaines sustained the injury during Sunday's 27-24 win over the Denver Broncos.


Jan 2 2018 - Kareem Hunt
  RB Kareem Hunt was intent on winning the rushing title, so much so that the rookie smooth-talked his coach into letting him vie for the honor. "He came to me and he wanted to play and he wanted to do this thing," coach Andy Reid said of Hunt, per ESPN. "I fought him a little bit on it, and he won that fight. He told me he'd get it taken care of quick, and he did that. My hat goes off to him."


Jan 1 2018 - Mitchell Schwartz
  RT Mitchell Schwartz played the entire game against the Broncos. He has played every offensive snap of his six-year career. His 96-consecutive starts are the longest active streak among offensive linemen. He extended his consecutive snap streak to 6,351 plays.


Jan 1 2018 - Kevin Pierre-Louis
  LB Kevin Pierre-Louis (shoulder) was among nine regular players who were active, but did not play against the Broncos. The Chiefs rested a total of 16 players against the Broncos. The team expects Pierre-Louis to be available against the Titans.


Jan 1 2018 - Bennie Logan
  DT Bennie Logan received extended rest during the week preparing for the Broncos, with the team backing off him during practice and making him inactive for the game. The hope is the extended rest will ease a quad and knee issue that plagued Logan much of the regular season.


Jan 1 2018 - Akeem Hunt
  RB Akeem Hunt expected to carry most of the workload in the backfield for the Chiefs against the Broncos, but a twisted ankle along with an existing shoulder injury limited him to just 16 snaps.


Jan 1 2018 - Leon McQuay III
  S Leon McQuay made his NFL debut Sunday and left the game early to undergo an evaluation for a concussion. He was cleared to return to the game and picked up three tackles in 64 snaps on both defense and special teams.


Jan 1 2018 - Rakeem Nunez-Roches
  DL Rakeem Nunez-Roches suffered an ankle sprain against the Broncos, but the team did not immediately disclose his availability for Saturday's playoff game. The versatile defensive lineman started 11 games for the team this season.


Jan 1 2018 - Albert Wilson
  WR Albert Wilson turned in a sterling performance against the Broncos, hauling in a career-high 10 catches on 11 targets for 147 yards, the first 100-yard receiving day of his five-year career. Wilson left the game late in the fourth quarter with tightness in his hamstring, but head coach Andy Reid expects Wilson to play Saturday against Tennessee in the wild-card game at Arrowhead Stadium.


Jan 1 2018 - Phillip Gaines
  CB Phillip Gaines suffered a dislocated elbow against the Broncos. The injury appears likely to keep Gaines out of Sunday's playoff game. \ Gaines was a healthy scratch in Weeks 15-16 but rejoined the lineup with most of the team's starters resting in the season finale.


Jan 1 2018 - De'Anthony Thomas
  WR De'Anthony Thomas underwent surgery for a broken leg suffered against the Broncos, an injury that ends his season. Head coach Andy Reid said surgery on Thomas went well, and he expects the fourth-year wideout to spend a few days recuperating in Denver before returning to Kansas City.


Jan 1 2018 - Patrick Mahomes
  QB Patrick Mahomes looked sharp in his debut on Sunday against the Broncos. Mahomes finished 22-of-35 passing for 284 yards and an interception for a passer rating of 76.4


Jan 1 2018 - Dustin Colquitt
  P Dustin Colquitt got off a 77-yard punt to end the second quarter Sunday.


Jan 1 2018 - De'Anthony Thomas

Jan 1 2018 - Leon McQuay III
  S Leon McQuay left the game in the first quarter to be evaluated for a concussion.


Jan 1 2018 - Kareem Hunt
  RB Kareem Hunt had one carry for 35 yards Sunday. It was enough to score a touchdown and secure the NFL's rushing title, as he finished with 1,327 yards. Chiefs coach Andy Reid had not planned to play Hunt, but the running back won him over by promising to get the necessary yardage quickly for the title over the Rams' Todd Gurley II, who sat out Los Angeles' regular-season finale. "He had one play, and he had a pretty nice run," Reid said. "I think he needed 14 yards. He came to me and he wanted to play and he wanted to do his thing. I fought him a little bit on it and he won the fight. He told me he'd get it taken care of quick and he did that. My hat's off to him."


Jan 1 2018 - Patrick Mahomes
  QB Patrick Mahomes completed 22 of 35 passes for 284 yards in his first NFL action Sunday. He kept his composure at crunch time, leading the drive to the go-ahead field goal in the final 2:45 after Denver roared back from 14 points down to tie it. "He had complete command out there," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. "I mentioned to our guys that he's so fortunate to have been in that room with Alex Smith. Just to know how you go about your job at this level, and he did that this week. He spent the time knowing he was going to be the guy, and Alex was a great support to him."


Dec 27 2017 - Orson Charles
  TE Orson Charles practiced in full despite a knee issue, suggesting he will be ready for a more expanded role this week against the Broncos. Starter Travis Kelce does not expect to play, leaving the tight-end role to Demetrius Harris and Charles, who caught a 35-yard pass last week against Miami.
