Injury History

Date League Injury Details
Sep 3, 2013 NFL Knee Patella Fracture Kelce had arthroscopic surgery on his bothersome knee, which revealed a cartilage issue that led to a microfracture procedure. He missed all but 1 play of 2013 but didn't lose another game to the knee. Original injury deemed a bone bruise.
Oct 19, 2014 NFL Chest Rib Sprain/Pull Unspecified Kelce sustained a rib injury but played through it. HC Andy Reid called it a sore rib "mostly up in the cartilage area."
Aug 31, 2015 NFL Pedal Ankle Sprain/Pull Unspecified Grade 1 Kelce suffered an ankle sprain in a preseason practice. He sat out the 4th preseason contest, though HC Andy Reid said he would have played if it were a regular-season game. Kelce returned for Week 1.
Oct 8, 2017 NFL Head Cranial Concussion Grade 1 Kelce suffered a concussion against the Texans. He was initially cleared to return to the game but showed some short-term memory loss at halftime. Kelce cleared the protocol in time to play the following week.
Jan 6, 2018 NFL Head Cranial Concussion Grade 1 Kelce missed the 2nd half of the Wild Card Round loss to the Titans with a concussion. It was his 2nd of the season.
Feb 28, 2017 NFL Shoulder Kelce had February shoulder surgery that HC Andy Reid indicated was a "cleanup" type procedure. He missed no game time, and it's not clear what the original injury was (which also caused no missed game time).
Jan 8, 2020 NFL Knee Strain Grade 1 Kelce had practiced on a limited basis due to knee soreness ahead of Divisional Round matchup against the Texans
Oct 10, 2021 NFL Cervical Neck Stinger Kelce suffered "a little bit of a stinger" during Week 5's loss to the Bills. He was good for the next game.

Travis Kelce questionable, expected to play Week 6

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (ankle) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Broncos. He got in limited practices on Tuesday and Wednesday. Insider Jordan Schultz reports that Kelce's ankle has "responded well" and that he is expected to play tomorrow. We'll get Kansas City's inactives around 7 pm ET. An active Kelce is a must-start.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (ankle) was officially limited in Tuesday's practice. He was spotted on the field with that right ankle heavily taped. We're tentatively expecting Kelce to play vs. the Broncos on Thursday night, but check back tomorrow to see how he's listed on the final injury report.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (ankle) will practice on Tuesday, HC Andy Reid said. That should put Kelce on track to play vs. the Broncos on Thursday night. We'll watch his status over the next couple of days.

The Chiefs listed TE Travis Kelce as not practicing Monday on their estimated practice report. The team didn't actually work out the day after beating Minnesota. But it's no surprise that Kelce wouldn't have practice on his sprained ankle. We'll watch to confirm he's ready to play Thursday night against the Broncos. Given that Kelce returned to the Vikings game, he seems likely to play. But it's no lock. If Kelce is trending toward sitting out, TE Noah Gray could be a deeper TE option.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Chiefs TE Travis Kelce suffered a low-ankle sprain in the Week 5 win over the Vikings. That conflicts with insider Jordan Schultz's initial report that it's a high-ankle sprain -- but makes more sense considering Kelce was able to return to today's game with reasonable effectiveness. We'll look for further clarification on Kelce's status. The schedule won’t do him any favors with his Chiefs taking on the Broncos on Thursday night.
