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.
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 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.
