The Chiefs have placed rookie CB L'Jarius Sneed on IR after he suffered a broken collarbone in Monday night's win over the Ravens. HC Andy Reid didn't share an expected timeline for Sneed's recovery. The history of collarbone fractures gives him a chance to return late in the season. But you should feel safe to drop Sneed outside of dynasty leagues. He jumped onto the IDP radar with INTs in each of the 1st 2 weeks and should be in K.C.'s starting mix whenever he does return. CB Charvarius Ward checked in for Sneed after the rookie left Monday night. Look for Ward -- who is coming off surgery for a broken thumb -- to replace Sneed in the starting lineup going forward. The Chiefs will also get CB Bashaud Breeland back from suspension after Week 4.
Chiefs CB Charvarius Ward suffered a hand fracture in the 2nd half of Thursday night's win over the Texans. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that they're still figuring out how much time Ward might miss. The Chiefs were already without CB Bashaud Breeland for the 1st 4 games because of suspension. Rookie L'Jarius Sneed led K.C. corners in playing time in the opener, seeing 93% of the defensive snaps. Elsewhere, DE Alex Okafor left early with what HC Andy Reid called a "mild" hamstring strain.
