The Chiefs on Saturday activated LB Willie Gay Jr. from IR. He has been out since the end of preseason with a toe injury. Kansas City listed him as questionable for tonight's game against the Bills, and Gay shouldn't be in anyone's IDP plans yet. He has significant upside through the rest of the season, though.
Chiefs LB Willie Gay Jr. has been arrested and charged with misdemeanor property damage after an alleged domestic dispute with the mother of his son. We wouldn't bet on the situation affecting Gay's availability for Sunday's game against the Bills, but it'll be something to watch for potential league discipline.
The Chiefs on Thursday placed LB Willie Gay Jr. on IR with a toe injury he suffered in the team's final preseason game. The IR designation means Gay will miss at least 3 games, but it doesn't sound like they expect the issue to linger much beyond that. According to Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star, there was "initial optimism" that the injury wasn't serious. Anthony Hitchens figures to lead the LB playing time for K.C. while Gay is out.
The Chiefs grabbed LB Willie Gay Jr. with the penultimate pick in Round 2 of the NFL Draft. Gay flashed impressive ability despite limited on-field experience at Mississippi State. He lost 8 games last season to an academic-fraud suspension and also punched a teammate, who then missed the Music City Bowl. Gay lands in a nice situation for immediate opportunity, though. Kansas City finished last season with no LB consistently playing full time. We'll see if he's ready to seize that opportunity in 2020. Gay certainly carries long-term intrigue for dynasty leagues.
