ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher expects second-year TE Travis Kelce to be the team's "pass receiver at tight end" in 2014, and "an important piece" of the Chiefs' passing game.
Per Teicher, Kelce showed the ability in practices last year to "line up in a variety of places," and "get down the field to beat coverage." We loved Kelce's game tape coming out of Cincinnati, but his rookie year essentially wound up as a "redshirt" season due to a relatively minor microfracture surgery on his knee. Kelce has a Heath Miller-type skill set. He remains a hold in Dynasty leagues. Apr 6 - 3:06 PM

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) is expected to be ready for OTAs.

Kelce missed his entire rookie season due to microfracture surgery, but is on track to be cleared for the Chiefs' offseason program. The 63rd overall pick in last April's draft, Kelce is a strong candidate to overtake Anthony Fasano for the starting tight end job in 2014.

If healthy, Travis Kelce (knee) is expected to get "plenty of playing time" in 2014.

Kelce's rookie season was wiped out by microfracture surgery. If he can get back to 100 percent, he brings unique "move" skills to the Chiefs that Anthony Fasano and Sean McGrath can't. During the offseason and training camp, beat writer Adam Teicher noticed Kelce lining up all over the formation and showing "he could get down the field to make catches more like a wide receiver than a tight end." It's a situation worth monitoring closely. The 63rd overall pick in last April's draft, Kelce is a player to target in Dynasty trades.

Chiefs GM John Dorsey expects 2014 to be a "big year" for TE Travis Kelce.

"This will be a big year for him coming up," Dorsey said. "It will be good for him to move forward and it will be good for us just to show everybody why we drafted him in the third round." Kelce, the 63rd pick in last April's draft, basically missed his entire rookie season after undergoing microfracture surgery. It's a tough injury to come back from, but the Chiefs still have high hopes for Kelce. He should compete with Anthony Fasano for the starting job this summer.

Chiefs placed TE Travis Kelce on injured reserve with a right knee injury, ending his season.

Kelce underwent microfracture knee surgery Tuesday after missing the first five weeks. He'll finish his rookie season without appearing in any games. A third-round pick, Kelce will compete for the starting tight end job in 2014.

Updating a previous item, Chiefs rookie TE Travis Kelce's Tuesday knee surgery was a microfracture procedure.

Kelce had several setbacks after suffering a "bone bruise" on his right knee in training camp. The surgery apparently isn't a major microfracture because the Chiefs haven't yet ruled Kelce out for the year, though that's almost certainly coming. "This is an injury that people get better from," Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder said. "He's a young guy and has a healthy knee."

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce underwent arthroscopic knee surgery Tuesday.

Kelce never got over the bone bruise he sustained in the preseason, turning his rookie season into a lost year. The Associated Press suggests he could be placed on injured reserve. It's a disappointing turn of events for Kelce, a physically imposing third-round pick that had a major chance with only Anthony Fasano ahead of him on the depth chart. Kelce remains a hold in deeper Dynasty formats.

Thu, Sep 26, 2013 12:58:00 PM

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Thursday's Week 3 game against the Eagles.

Kelce was limited in Wednesday's practice as he deals with a bone bruise. It's bad timing as Anthony Fasano (ankle) is doubtful. Thursday could have been a coming out party kind of chance for Kelce.
Wed, Sep 18, 2013 12:11:00 PM

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) returned to a limited practice Tuesday.

Kelce is nursing a bone bruise in his knee and is questionable for Thursday night's Andy Reid Bowl. The third-round rookie has yet to catch a pass this season, but his presence would be welcomed with Anthony Fasano (ankle) yet to practice this week.

Travis Kelce is nursing a bone bruise in his knee.

Kelce has yet to catch a pass this season. The Dynasty prospect watched third tight end Sean McGrath catch two passes for 31 yards on four targets in Sunday's win over the Cowboys.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Kelce was limited in Friday's practice and is still dealing with a preseason knee injury. He didn't play a single snap despite being active last week. When healthy, Kelce will immediately regain the No. 2 tight end role behind Anthony Fasano.
Fri, Sep 13, 2013 08:02:00 PM

The Kansas City star suggests Travis Kelce's blocking is still an issue.

With Tony Moeaki gone, Kelce is locked into the No. 2 tight end role behind Anthony Fasano. But in order to get significant snaps, he's going to need to clean up his blocking. It's a typical path for a young, athletic tight end. Kelce isn't on the redraft radar yet, but remains a hold in Dynasty formats.
