Chiefs DT Chris Jones (calf) is active for today’s game against the Titans. That’s a big boost to K.C.’s run defense and pass rush

Recent Shark Bites

Chiefs DT Chris Jones was away from the team Thursday because of close contact with a staff member who tested positive for COVID-19. But NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Jones has been cleared and is set to practice Friday. So the star DT should be good to go for Week 9 IDP lineups.

The Chiefs have applied the franchise tag to DT Chris Jones. It was the expected move, to keep 1 of the team's top defensive players from hitting free agency. When healthy, Jones is a top-20 fantasy D-linemen and 1 of the top fantasy DTs available. He'll turn just 26 in July.

Chiefs DT Chris Jones (calf) is inactive for today's game against the Texans. That leaves the Kansas City D-line without a top run defender and a key component in the pass rush. Jones also missed the Week 6 meeting, in which Texans RB Carlos Hyde tallied 116 yards on 26 carries. Today's matchup gets better for Hyde with Jones out.

Chiefs DT Chris Jones is questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans. Jones sustained a calf injury in Thursday's practice and then missed Friday's workout. Jones missed 3 games earlier this season, a span that included losses to Houston and Green Bay. Jones' absence would hurt both the run defense and the pass rush. We'll see about his availability Sunday afternoon.

Chiefs DT Chris Jones suffered a groin injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday night's game against the Colts. The team quickly ruled Jones out, which suggests the issue could be significant. We'll see about Jones' availability for an upside Week 6 matchup with the Texans.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Jones is expected to miss further time and is considered "week to week." Don't expect to have him for the upside matchup with the Texans this week.
