Chiefs LB Anthony Hitchens (triceps) has been ruled out for Monday night's game against the Giants. Without Hitchens in Week 7, playing time for the top 3 Chiefs LBs went: Nick Bolton 84%, Ben Niemann 74%, Willie Gay Jr. 68%. We'd expect a similar setup this week. CB Charvarius Ward (foot) is questionable. We'll update his status Monday evening, but you'd be better off looking elsewhere for a fantasy CB.

The Chiefs have ruled LB Anthony Hitchens out for Sunday's game against the Titans. He's listed on the injury report with a triceps contusion, but it sounds like a nerve issue in his right elbow might be more significant. His absence leaves Ben Niemann and Nick Bolton as the likely LB leaders, with Bolton the more attractive IDP option. DL Chris Jones (hand) and CB Charvarius Ward (quad) are questionable for the game. Jones had missed time with a wrist injury but appears to have moved on from that. He finished the week with a full practice. Ward put in limited practices all week.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid told reporters Wednesday that LB Anthony Hitchens is dealing with a right triceps contusion. NFL Network's Jeffrey Chadiha reports, however, that Hitchens also has a nerve injury in the elbow. It's not yet clear how long -- or even whether -- Hitchens will miss further time. Ben Niemann led Chiefs LBs in Week 6 playing time, with Hitchens leaving early. Nick Bolton checked in 2nd, while Willie Gay Jr.'s snap share declined vs. the previous game. Bolton is the most attractive IDP option among those 3.

Chiefs LB Anthony Hitchens left Sunday's win over Washington with a right elbow injury. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that it's believed to be a hyperextension. We'll see about Hitchens' return timeline. His absence could allow Willie Gay Jr. and Nick Bolton to take over the the corps' top 2 in playing time.

Chiefs LB Anthony Hitchens (knee) is active for today's game against Washington.

In addition to the change at safety, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that the Chiefs' defensive alterations could include "possibly more Nick Bolton and Willie Gay together at linebacker." It'll be a tough situation to read for IDP value before we see the new snap distribution among Chiefs LBs. We did move Anthony Hitchens down the Week 6 LB rankings, though.

The Chiefs have ruled DL Chris Jones (wrist) and CB Charvarius Ward (quad) out for Sunday's game at Washington. LB Anthony Hitchens (knee) is questionable. He finished the week with a full Friday workout, though. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

The Chiefs on Thursday placed LB Willie Gay Jr. on IR with a toe injury he suffered in the team's final preseason game. The IR designation means Gay will miss at least 3 games, but it doesn't sound like they expect the issue to linger much beyond that. According to Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star, there was "initial optimism" that the injury wasn't serious. Anthony Hitchens figures to lead the LB playing time for K.C. while Gay is out.

Chiefs LB Anthony Hitchens put in full practices Tuesday and Wednesday, and the team left him off the final injury reports. He should be set to return Thursday night against the Broncos from the groin injury that cost him Week 6. That will push Ben Niemann back to a small role. He played just 13, 15 and 13 snaps the 3 games before Hitchens left early in Week 5. The Chiefs will miss CB Kendall Fuller (thumb) and DT Chris Jones (groin) against Denver, however. CB Bashaud Breeland is questionable for the game despite not having an injury. He did not travel with the team, but the Broncos have so far given no details on the corner's situation.

Chiefs LB Anthony Hitchens (groin) is inactive for today's game against the Texans. His absence pushes Ben Niemann into the starting lineup.

The Chiefs have ruled DT Chris Jones (groin) out for Sunday's game against the Texans. LB Anthony Hitchens is questionable with his own groin injury. He put in limited practices all week after leaving last week's game for good in the 1st half. We'll see about his status Sunday morning. If Hitchens doesn't play, Ben Niemann would fill in at near full time.
