Chiefs WR Justyn Ross missed his entire rookie season with a foot injury. But he's had a healthy 2023 so far and has impressed at OTAs. “Justyn is coming along," HC Andy Reid said. "He feels good, his foot feels good (and) the surgery that he had worked out well up to this point. He’s made some nice plays for us out here. I know Pat (Mahomes) has trust in him, so that’s good to see." Mahomes said back in April that he was excited about the progress he'd seen from Ross, who went undrafted last year due to medical concerns but totaled 1,865 yards and 17 TDs over his first two seasons at Clemson. His progress -- and standing on the depth chart -- are definitely worth monitoring this summer.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes is excited by WR Justyn Ross' progress this offseason. “The talent is through the roof,” Mahomes said. “I think anyone can see that. He’s getting better and better. Even though he wasn’t active all year he was in the building and he was able to see the guys and how we do things. Listening and being in the meetings and some of the stuff like that. I’m excited for him, man. To be able to get out there and get the reps in practice, get the little fine details that we like to do in this offense.” Ross went undrafted last year due to medical concerns and then missed his entire rookie season with a foot injury. But he was awesome early in his Clemson career, racking up 1,865 yards and 17 TDs over his first 2 seasons. Ross is still a long shot for tangible fantasy value this season, but he's worth keeping an eye on if for no other reason than the offense he plays in. Ross is also worth stashing in deeper dynasty leagues.

The Chiefs on Monday placed WR Justyn Ross on IR. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Ross will miss the entire season. The rookie recently had foot surgery, so it makes sense for the team to shut down the 7th-rounder. Assuming his recovery and rehab go well, Ross still sports long-term upside. This lost 1st season might help to bring down his price in dynasty leagues.

Chiefs WR Justyn Ross had surgery recently to "correct" a previous operation he had on a foot that he initially injured back in November. "It's going to take time," HC Andy Reid said Friday, according to Pete Sweeney of Arrowhead Pride. Expect the rookie to begin training camp on the PUP list. We're not betting on significant contributions from Ross this season. The undrafted rookie has some long-term upside but also comes with significant injury baggage. Just make sure you don't over-commit.

Chiefs WR Justyn Ross was spotted a couple of weeks ago with a walking boot on his left foot. We don't have any other details on the injury -- but it's worth noting that this is the same foot in which Ross suffered a stress fracture back in 2021. We'll see if the undrafted rookie opens training camp on the PUP list. He remains just a dynasty stash for now.

Clemson HC Dabo Swinney revealed that only 4 NFL teams medically cleared Chiefs WR Justyn Ross. Ross missed the entire 2020 season after undergoing surgery to address a bulging disc and congenital fusion condition in his neck and spine. He was eventually cleared to play at Clemson last year, but it's a reminder that he's a major injury risk moving forward. It's why he went undrafted -- before signing with Kansas City.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the Chiefs are signing former Clemson WR Justyn Ross as an undrafted free agent. Medicals are the big concern with Ross. He had surgery in June 2020 to address a bulging disc and congenital fusion condition in his neck and spine. That cost him the entire 2020 campaign. Ross was medically cleared to return this past August but missed more time in 2021 with a stress fracture in his foot that eventually required surgery. He then disappointed with a 26th percentile Relative Athletic Score at the Combine – although it’s possible that he still wasn’t 100% recovered from the foot surgery. What Ross has going for him is the most impressive freshman season of any WR in this class. He led a 2018 Tigers team that also included WRs Tee Higgins, Hunter Renfrow and Amari Rodgers with 1,000 receiving yards. Ross ranked 2nd in Pro Football Focus’ 2018 receiving grades among 286 WRs with 50+ targets. He fell behind Higgins in 2019 but still finished with a solid 66-865-8 line. Ross wasn’t a big separator at Clemson but has some of the best ball skills and contested-catch ability in this WR class. That should play at the next level for the 6’4, 205-pounder. Landing in K.C. obviously adds the upside of playing with QB Patrick Mahomes. We'll see how the Chiefs sort out a WR corps that shed Tyreek Hill, Byron Pringle and Demarcus Robinson this offseason, and added JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Skyy Moore and Corey Coleman.
