Chiefs EDGE Frank Clark left Saturday's win over the Raiders with a groin injury and did not return. He was ruled out early in the 2nd half. That's generally a bad sign for the severity of an injury. Of course, K.C. was already way up at that point in the game and had no reason to push Clark back into action. The victory also gives him the bye week to heal up before their playoff opener. We'll watch for further details on the injury.

Chiefs CB L'Jarius Sneed suffered a hip pointer in Sunday's win over the Broncos, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Sneed is considered day-to-day. We'll watch his status heading into Saturday's game against the Raiders.

Chiefs DT Chris Jones (illness) is active for today's game against the Texans. Use him as planned in your IDP lineups.

Chiefs DT Chris Jones is questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans after missing Friday's practice with an illness. It was the 1st time this week that he showed up on the injury report. We'll check Jones' status Sunday morning.

Chiefs S Juan Thornhill (calf) is inactive for today's game against the Rams.

The league has suspended Chiefs LB Willie Gay Jr. for 4 games for violating the personal-conduct policy. The discipline addresses Gay's January arrest for damaging property. He'll miss games against the Colts, Buccaneers, Raiders and Bills before returning in Week 6. Rookie Leo Chenal checked in 3rd among Chiefs LBs in Week 2 playing time.

Chiefs CB Trent McDuffie sustained a concussion in Thursday night's preseason finale vs. Green Bay. The rookie still has 2 weeks to make it through the league protocol before the regular-season opener. He's expected to start if ready.

The Chiefs added EDGE George Karlaftis with the 30th pick of the 2022 NFL Draft. Karlaftis tallied 12 sacks and 27 total tackles for loss in his 2 full seasons with Purdue. (Injury and COVID limited him to just 2 games in 2020.) Karlaftis ran slow in pre-draft testing which could point to a limited IDP ceiling. But he lands in a situation with opportunity as soon as he proves ready.

The Chiefs moved up to the 21st pick of the NFL Draft to select CB Trent McDuffie. The 3-year Washington corner offered little from a numbers standpoint in college, totaling just 2 INTs and 8 passes defensed -- with 6 of those coming last year. We're not betting on big IDP value from McDuffie, though he should enter the lineup quickly.

The 49ers have agreed to a 3-year, $40.5 million deal with CB Charvarius Ward. He spent the past 3 seasons starting for the Chiefs but totaled just 4 INTs over that span. He has been a solid tackle collector for IDP squads and will remain worth consideration for CB-required formats.

The Chiefs have agreed with S Justin Reid on a 3-year, $31.5 million deal (with $20 million guaranteed), according to multiple reports. Still just 25 coming off his 4th pro season, Reid posted career-low fantasy production in 2021 amid injury and team issues. In K.C., he should occupy an upside IDP spot next to S Juan Thornhill. His arrival also almost certainly means that Tyrann Mathieu is heading elsewhere in free agency.

Chiefs S Tyrann Mathieu left Sunday's win over the Steelers in the 2nd half with a quad injury. We'll see about the severity over the next few days.

The Chiefs have ruled CB L'Jarius Sneed out for Thursday night's game against the Chargers, as he continues to deal with the murder of his older brother. His absence should give CB Mike Hughes a 2nd straight start. Hughes claimed AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors for Week 14 after tallying 9 tackles (8 solo), 2 forced fumbles and a fumble recovery he returned for a 1st-quarter TD. He'll carry IDP upside against the Chargers -- though with a ceiling likely somewhere short of that stat line.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid told reporters Tuesday that CB L'Jarius Sneed was on his way back to the team. Sneed missed Sunday's win over the Raiders to spend time with family in Louisiana, following the murder of his older brother. It sounds like he'll be ready to return to the lineup for Thursday night's game at the Chargers, but we'll confirm that as kickoff approaches. If Sneed is back, then fill-in Mike Hughes -- who kicked off a strong fantasy day with an early fumble-return TD Sunday -- would return to a reserve role.

The Chiefs have placed DT Chris Jones on the COVID list, HC Andy Reid revealed to reporters today. That likely means he's out for Thursday night's game against the Chargers. We'll watch to confirm that, of course.

Chiefs slot CB Rashad Fenton (knee) is active or today's game against the Raiders. He came in questionable but will play in an upside matchup with Vegas WR Hunter Renfrow.

The Chiefs have ruled CB L'Jarius Sneed out for today's game against the Raiders after the death of his older brother. Sneed traveled to Louisiana on Saturday to be with family and reportedly remains there. We'll see whether he's ready to return for Week 15.

Chiefs S Tyrann Mathieu is active for today's game against the Cowboys. Kansas City added him to the injury report today with a knee issue, so it wouldn't be shocking if we see some limitation on Mathieu's playing time.

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.

Chiefs DL Chris Jones (hand/wrist) and CB Charvarius Ward (quad) are active for today's game against the Titans.
