Chiefs RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif has been ruled out for Week 5 against Houston.

Oct 8 - 7:10 PM

Chiefs RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif has been ruled out for Week 5.

He'll miss at least this week with a knee sprain. It's a concern for an interior line already without Mitch Morse. Jordan Devey will start at right guard against Houston.
Oct 6 - 6:24 PM

Coach Andy Reid said RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif has a sprained knee and is day to day.

The Chiefs are on a short week after winning Monday night against the Redskins to push to 4-0. LDT will have a tough time getting ready in time for Sunday night in Houston. If he can't go, Jordan Devey would get the start.
Oct 4 - 1:18 PM

Chiefs RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif left Week 4 against the Redskins with a knee injury.

He was barely able to put any weight on his leg as he left the field. Duvernay-Tardif is one of the Chiefs better offensive lineman and was replaced by Jordan Devey.
Oct 2 - 8:53 PM

Chiefs signed RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif to a five-year, $41.25 million extension through 2022.

The deal includes $20 million guaranteed. In average annual value ($8.25 million), Duvernay-Tardif's extension makes him the NFL's fourth-highest-paid guard behind Kelechi Osemele, David DeCastro, and Kyle Long. A 2014 sixth-round pick out of McGill College in Canada, Duvernay-Tardif has settled in as a solid-if-spectacular starting right guard in Kansas City. "LDT," as he is nicknamed, earned solid pass-protection grades from Pro Football Focus last year, but struggled in the run game. He turned 26 earlier this month.
Feb 27 - 4:32 PM

Chiefs OL Laurent Duvernay-Tardif lined up as the first-team right guard during Wednesday's OTA practice.

The Chiefs appear to be high on their 2014 sixth-round pick. Though he was inactive every game of his rookie season, Duvernay-Tardif stuck on the roster the entire season and has earned consistent praise from coach Andy Reid. "Very strong and athletic, and he’s smart," Reid said of LDF. "It’s just a matter with him – like I mentioned back then last year – his reps. Every rep he gets better with. He's a good football player." Paul Fanaika is still the favorite to start at right guard, but Duvernay-Tardif could push him in camp. Fanaika was awful in Arizona last year.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid is still optimistic about 2014 sixth-round OG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif.

The No. 200 overall pick of last May's draft, LDF made zero appearances as a rookie. "He’s smart, strong and a good athlete," Reid said. "I think he just needs to play more." 2014 starter Mike McGlynn is headed to the open market, though Jeff Allen will be returning after missing all of 2014 with an elbow injury. Realistically, LDF won't compete for a starting job.

The Chiefs know sixth-round OL Laurent Duvernay-Tardif will be a project and may not contribute much as a rookie.

"It’s a big swing and we’re hoping for a home run," scout Pat Sperduto said. "You’ve got the [coaches who] can develop him. They’ll close the gap as fast as they can and we’ll see how quick he hits the field." LDT, 23, was working mostly as a backup guard during the spring after spending his college career in Canada at McGill University. At 6'5/298, he ran a 4.94 forty, repped 225 pounds 33 times on the bench press, and posted a 33.5-inch vertical.

Sixth-round OL Laurent Duvernay-Tardif reported to the Chiefs at 307 pounds.

He's up nine pounds from his Pro Day weight. The Canadian Football product is an outstanding athlete, and has been working at both guard and tackle in early-offseason practices. Duvernay-Tardif could push to start by 2015.

Chiefs signed sixth-round OT Laurent Duvernay-Tardif to a four-year contract.

Duvernay-Tardif is two years removed from playing defensive tackle. He needs to pack on some muscle to his 6-foot-5, 298-pound frame, but he's already super athletic. Duvernay-Tardif will be one of OL coach Andy Heck's projects.

Chiefs selected McGill T Laurent Duvernay-Tardif with the No. 200 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Duvernay-Tardif (6-foot-5, 298) was the 2013 Metras Trophy winner as Canadian Football's most outstanding lineman despite spending just two seasons on offense after converting from defensive tackle. "LDT" ran forty times of 4.94 and 5.08 before the draft, adding a 31 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-6 broad jump. To cap off the freakish workout, he did 33 bench-press reps. Duvernay-Tardif is a raw project, but has longer-term starter upside based on his size and movement ability.
