Chiefs DE Allen Bailey (chest) says he's 100 percent healthy.

Bailey lasted five games before landing on IR last year. The Chiefs are counting on him in a leadership role after losing multiple veterans on the defensive line. With Jaye Howard gone, Bailey should see regular early-down snaps.

Updating a previous item, Chiefs DE Allen Bailey suffered a torn pectoral in Week 6.

He was placed on I.R. on Tuesday. This is more for bookkeeping purposes. Bailey is a strong run defender and has two more years left on his contract.

Chiefs placed DE Allen Bailey and ILB Justin March-Lillard on injured reserve.

Bailey injured his shoulder in Sunday's win over the Raiders. Bailey is one of the Chiefs' better run stuffers, but isn't a crippling loss. Now 27, he's signed through 2018, and due $3.9 million next season. A release or restructure could be in the offing in the offseason.

Chiefs DE Allen Bailey's shoulder injury could be season ending.

Bailey exited Sunday's game against the Raiders with what appeared to be a minor injury, but it now looks more severe. An important run stuffer, Bailey's loss would be a big one for the Chiefs.

Chiefs signed DE Allen Bailey to a four-year, $25 million extension through 2019.

The deal contains $15 million guaranteed, including a $10 million signing bonus. Bailey has impressed in his first year as a full-time starter, with 27 tackles, four sacks and 12 TFLs through nine games. The extension indicates the Chiefs haven't made any progress on a new deal for OLB Justin Houston, who can become a free agent after the season. Bailey's contract will place him among the highest paid 3-4 ends in the league and keep him locked up for the next half-decade. Bailey was owed just $670,000 in 2015 under his old rookie deal.

Chiefs placed DE Allen Bailey (ankle) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Bailey's second NFL season wraps with zero sacks and five tackles in 10 games. The nickel rusher will be back next year to fight for more snaps as a rotational end.

The Chiefs are expected to give second-year DE Allen Bailey an expanded role this season behind LE Tyson Jackson and RE Glenn Dorsey.

With Wallace Gilberry gone, Bailey will be Kansas City's primary nickel end after managing 10 tackles and one sack last season. If Bailey excels in the role, he could be ticketed for a starting job the following season. Dorsey is in a contract year, and Jackson's 2013 base salary is an unmanageable $14.72 million.

Chiefs signed No. 86 overall pick DE Allen Bailey to a four-year, $2.67 million contract.

Coordinator Romeo Crennel got unexpected results out of his defensive line last year, and he has a new toy in the two-time all-Conference selection out of Miami. Bailey is expected to begin his career as an inside nickel rusher.
Thu, Jul 28, 2011 05:05:00 PM

The Chiefs plan to use No. 86 overall pick Allen Bailey as an inside nickel rusher in passing downs.

Bailey was used extensively as a defensive tackle in passing situations at Miami, so this should be a pretty natural role for him. The Chiefs aren't looking at Bailey as a starter. He will compete with Wallace Gilberry for snaps.

Chiefs selected Miami DE Allen Bailey with the No. 86 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

Bailey enters the league with a reputation as an underachiever despite earning all-Conference honors in each of the past two seasons. To be fair, it could easily be chalked up to unreasonable expectations and poor coaching. Possessing an excellent physique and good enough speed, Bailey offers upside if Romeo Crennel can mold him as a 3-4 end.

Miami DE Allen Bailey ran an official forty time of 4.77 at the Scouting Combine on Monday.

It's a decent time, but not quite what was expected from a player many deemed a potential Combine workout wonder. Bailey will enter the draft with question marks about his mediocre collegiate production and position at the next level. We're betting against Bailey being a first-round pick in April.

Miami (FL) DE Allen Bailey has reportedly been "nothing but ordinary" in Senior Bowl practices.

Bailey is a manchild getting off the bus at a shredded 6'3/278, but it's hard to be surprised. His production as a 'Cane was also ordinary, one of the reasons NFL Network's Mike Mayock isn't high on him. In recent years, Miami players have built an underachiever's reputation due to poor coaching.
