Chiefs waived/injured WR Junior Hemingway.

He will revert to injured reserve if he passes through waivers. A 2012 seventh-round pick, Hemingway has never established himself in Kansas City's underwhelming receiver corps. He has recorded 25 catches across 31 games in three years with the Chiefs. Kansas City also waived OL Tavon Rooks, placed QB Tyler Bray on the reserve/NFI list and placed LB Justin March on injured reserve.
Sep 1 - 4:06 PM

Chiefs tendered exclusive rights free agent WR Junior Hemingway.

Hemingway will return at the league minimum. He played in 14 games (260 snaps) last season, but was limited to 12 catches. Hemingway will compete for a backup and special teams job in camp.
Mar 6 - 5:30 PM

Chiefs WR Junior Hemingway was forced from Kansas City's Week 12 game against the Raiders with a concussion.

Hemingway had one catch for four yards. Hemingway is no one's idea of an impact player, but it further thins the Chiefs' embarrassingly-thin receiver corps. Hemingway should be considered week to week.
Thu, Nov 20, 2014 10:15:00 PM

Chiefs WR Junior Hemingway (hamstring) is probable for Week 9.

Hemingway should see time in four-wide sets. With Donnie Avery sidelined, A.J. Jenkins will start opposite Dwayne Bowe.

Chiefs WR Junior Hemingway (hamstring) is practicing in full for Week 9.

The ineffective role player played through his hamstring injury in Week 8, and avoided setbacks. Hemingway is off the fantasy radar.
Thu, Oct 30, 2014 06:40:00 PM

Junior Hemingway (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 8.

Hemingway practiced on a limited basis after suffering a hamstring injury last week. He's expected to be a game-time decision. With Donnie Avery sidelined, Hemingway would play in four-wide sets.
Sat, Oct 25, 2014 09:07:00 PM

Junior Hemingway suffered a hamstring injury in Kansas City's Week 7 win over the Chargers.

Hemingway went down late in the first half. He muffed his lone target for a brutal drop. Hemingway should be considered week to week.
Sun, Oct 19, 2014 08:16:00 PM

Junior Hemingway caught 4-of-4 targets for 50 yards in Kansas City's Week 5 loss to the 49ers.

Seeing increased run in the absence of Donnie Avery, Hemingway doubled his season catch and yardage totals. Although Avery should miss at least another month, Hemingway isn't on the radar in 14-team leagues.
Sun, Oct 5, 2014 08:20:00 PM

Junior Hemingway (hip) is probable for Sunday's game against Titans.

Hemingway will be Kansas City's No. 3 receiver with Dwayne Bowe suspended. Frankie Hammond will start in two-wide sets.
Fri, Sep 5, 2014 04:46:00 PM

Junior Hemingway (hip) is practicing in full for Week 1.

With Dwayne Bowe suspended, Hemingway should be the No. 3 receiver this week. Frankie Hammond and Donnie Avery will start in two-wide sets.
Wed, Sep 3, 2014 07:31:00 PM

Chiefs WR Junior Hemingway exited Sunday night's preseason game with a hip injury.

Hemingway worked as Kansas City's No. 3 receiver behind Dwayne Bowe and Donnie Avery. There is no further information available on his injury.
Sun, Aug 17, 2014 09:25:00 PM

Junior Hemingway caught two passes for 30 yards in Kansas City's Wild Card loss to the Colts.

Hemingway became the Chiefs' No. 3 receiver after Donnie Avery went down with a concussion. A second-year seventh rounder out of Michigan, Hemingway caught nine passes over the Chiefs' final five games. He's not going to be gifted No. 4 receiver duties in 2014, but has the inside track on a roster spot. A burly 6-foot-1, 225 pounds, Hemingway needs to improve as a blocker to ensure he sticks around in Kansas City.
Sat, Jan 4, 2014 09:24:00 PM

Junior Hemingway caught five passes for 45 yards in the Chiefs' Week 17 loss to the Chargers.

A.J. Jenkins, Dexter McCluster, and Hemingway played leading Week 17 roles for the Chiefs, who rested their starters in this meaningless game. Hemingway has been Kansas City's No. 4 receiver throughout the season, behind Dwayne Bowe, McCluster, and Donnie Avery. That won't change in the playoffs.
Sun, Dec 29, 2013 08:09:00 PM

Chiefs WR Junior Hemingway caught three passes for 42 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 13 loss to Denver.

This one came out of nowhere, as Hemingway entered the game with just 27 receiving yards all season. His big play occurred on a first-quarter touchdown pass via Alex Smith from 17 yards out. Hemingway is Kansas City's No. 4 receiver, behind Dwayne Bowe, Dexter McCluster, and Donnie Avery.
