Chiefs declared QB Tyler Bray, DL Jarvis Jenkins, OL Parker Ehinger, LB Reggie Ragland and CB D.J. White inactive for Week 1 against the Patriots.

S Ron Parker, who was questionable with an ankle injury, is active. Bray will spend every week as one of the Chiefs' seven inactives unless injury befalls Alex Smith or Patrick Mahomes.

Coach Andy Reid said Tyler Bray has an opportunity to hold onto the backup job.

Bray is working with the second-team offense at OTAs. His veteran status has him ahead of Patrick Mahomes, but Mahomes will get a chance to pass him in training camp. A strong-armed 2013 UDFA, Bray is in the final year of his contract.

Tyler Bray is expected to compete for the Chiefs' backup job.

Bray held off Aaron Murray for a roster spot last preseason, but spent the year as a third-stringer behind Alex Smith and Nick Foles. He'll get a chance at the No. 2 role with Foles not expected back. Kansas City should add competition for Bray through the draft/free agency.

Chiefs QB Tyler Bray has a "chip fracture" in his spine.

Bray suffered the injury in the first preseason game. Trainer Rick Burkholder said the injury sounds worse than it is, but there is not timetable for Bray's return. Any missed time will hurt Bray's chances in the backup quarterback battle.

Tyler Bray, Aaron Murray and Kevin Hogan will compete for the backup quarterback job in Kansas City behind starter Alex Smith.

Chase Daniel filled that role for three years before joining Doug Pederson in Philadelphia. Coach Andy Reid named Bray the No. 2 quarterback entering preseason games, but only because Bray has been in the league longest. Murray remains the favorite for the job. Hogan is a fifth-round rookie.

Chiefs signed QB Tyler Bray to a two-year, $1.925 million extension through 2017.

Bray is currently on the NFI list after tearing his left ACL playing basketball in the offseason. As part of the deal, the Chiefs agreed to pay his full $510,000 salary while he is on the NFI list.

Chiefs QB Tyler Bray (knee) hasn't been cleared for OTAs.

Four months removed from ACL surgery, Bray is a candidate to open training camp on active/PUP. His future is in doubt after sitting out all of 2014. Bray is behind Aaron Murray for the No. 3 quarterback job.

Chiefs QB Tyler Bray recently tore his left ACL playing basketball.

That might do it for Bray's career. The big-armed 2013 UDFA spent all of 2014 on injured reserve with a high-ankle sprain, and has never attempted an NFL pass. The Chiefs have Alex Smith, Chase Daniel and Aaron Murray ahead of Bray on the depth chart, and recently signed Terrelle Pryor.

Chiefs placed QB Tyler Bray on injured reserve, ending his season.

It's a means of "stashing" Bray for all of 2014 while entering the season with Chase Daniel and rookie Aaron Murray behind Alex Smith. A big-armed but erratic prospect, 22-year-old Bray should get one more camp with Kansas City.

ESPN Chiefs blogger Adam Teicher "doesn't get the sense" the Chiefs are ready to give up on Tyler Bray.

Bray and rookie Aaron Murray are competing for the No. 3 quarterback job, but Teicher suggests Kansas City could keep four quarterbacks if they can't extend Alex Smith. A 2013 UDFA, Bray spent last year developing behind Smith and Chase Daniel. Bray has practice squad eligibility if he doesn't make the final roster, though he'd likely draw some interest on waivers.

Chiefs declared QB Tyler Bray, LB Nico Johnson, C Eric Kush, OL Rokevious Watkins, OG Rishaw Johnson, DT Kyle Love, and OLB Justin Houston inactive for Week 13 against the Broncos.

Tamba Hali (ankle) is active against Denver.

The Kansas City Star reports undrafted rookie QB Tyler Bray has "internally" impressed Chiefs decision makers "as much as anyone in camp."

Bray has already passed Ricky Stanzi on the depth chart while exhibiting the strongest arm in camp. Knocked for off-field issues before the draft, Bray has shown "the right attitude" and been a "positive force" in QB meetings. Bray is worth rostering in Dynasty leagues. Coach Andy Reid has had success with big-armed if somewhat erratic quarterbacks in the past. (Read: Donovan McNabb.)
Thu, Aug 8, 2013 05:51:00 PM

ESPN AFC West blogger Bill Williamson believes undrafted Chiefs QB Tyler Bray has a "very strong chance" of beating out Ricky Stanzi for No. 3 duties.

Bray has impressed coach Andy Reid in OTAs. "I’ll tell you, he did a nice job. He did a really nice job," Reid said Thursday. "The fact is that he did a nice job and improved every day. He was a bit like a sponge just taking everything in. I was impressed." Bray should dispatch Stanzi soon enough.
