Charcandrick West suffered a concussion in Kansas City's third preseason game.

West is in the concussion protocol. His roster spot shouldn't be in danger despite the injury. West has just over two weeks to get cleared.

BJ Kissel of KCChiefs.com noted the creativity of defensive coordinator Bob Sutton after Friday’s preseason victory over the Tennessee Titans.

Kissel highlighted a specific play in which "Sutton dialed up a pretty exotic blitz that had defensive lineman Mike Catapano dropping into coverage on third-and-eight." With Sutton likely opening up his defensive toolbox even further when the regular season arrives, the Chiefs could repeat their 2014 top-five finish in sacks among NFL defenses. The KC D/ST is a solid option for the 2015 fantasy season and get a nice matchup against Brian Hoyer and the Arian Foster-less Texans in Week 1.

The Chiefs expect Albert Wilson to be "fine" after Friday night's shoulder scare.

He escaped with a mild AC sprain in the shoulder. It's a "minor deal," per coach Andy Reid. Wilson is currently on track to open the season starting opposite Jeremy Maclin, but should be feeling some heat from Chris Conley.

Knile Davis had two catches for 17 yards in Kansas City's third preseason game.

Davis played behind Jamaal Charles, but didn't have any carries. Charcandrick West also worked with the first team and finished as the Chiefs leading rusher. Davis remains the top handcuff to Charles. Through three preseason games, Davis has 15 carries for 52 yards (3.46 YPC).

Rookie WR Chris Conley caught three passes for 30 yards in Kansas City's third preseason game.

Conley started in three-wide sets after making his preseason debut last week. He was targeted six times, behind only Jeremy Maclin. Conley drew a pass interference call that set up Travis Kelce's eight-yard touchdown. With Albert Wilson (shoulder) sidelined, Conley has a chance to find his way into early-season base packages.

Travis Kelce secured three balls for 42 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' third preseason game.

"Zeus" found the end zone from eight yards out on a tough throw by Alex Smith, who was on his game in a major way tonight against a talent-deficient Titans defense. An absolute bully after the catch, Kelce now has 63 yards on just four catches over Kansas City's last two preseason games. Kelce has a mediocre floor, but offers upside to finish as this year's No. 3 fantasy tight end.

Jeremy Maclin caught seven balls for 65 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' third preseason game.

He caught all seven of his first-half targets. The Chiefs got on the board quickly with a 29-yard dart into good coverage complete to Maclin from a surprisingly-aggressive Alex Smith. For the second straight game, Maclin was fed the football creatively and showed outstanding chemistry with his quarterback on a variety of routes. If the Chiefs keep manufacturing ways for Maclin to get the football, he'll be a value pick in the sixth and seventh round of drafts.

Jamaal Charles had three carries for 26 yards in Kansas City's third preseason game.

He added two catches for 15 yards. The Chiefs barely played Charles this preseason in an effort to keep him healthy. He remains a strong bet for 250-plus touches as the centerpiece of Kansas City's offense. Charles should be drafted a top-five fantasy pick.
Aug 28 - 9:55 PM

Alex Smith completed 16-of-18 passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns in Kansas City's third preseason game.

Smith led the Chiefs to three straight scoring drives before getting removed in the second quarter. His first touchdown was a 29-yard pass to Jeremy Maclin, and he later hit Travis Kelce on an eight-yard slant in tight coverage. Smith's weapons have improved with the addition of Maclin and rookie Chris Conley, but he isn't more than a low-upside QB2. With Chase Daniel expected to start next week, Smith will finish the preseason 33-of-46 for 294 yards with three touchdowns and an interception.
Aug 28 - 9:27 PM

Albert Wilson left Friday's preseason game with a shoulder injury.

Wilson went down after making a 16-yard catch on the opening drive. The Chiefs are listing his return as questionable, but he's likely done for the game. Wilson's injury gives rookie Chris Conley a chance to play opposite Jeremy Maclin.
Aug 28 - 8:34 PM

ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher considers fourth-round ILB Ramik Wilson in the mix to start opposite Derrick Johnson.

Josh Mauga opened training camp as the favorite to start, but missed the first two preseason games. Wilson has impressed in his absence, posting nine tackles and an interception. It's possible Wilson has played his way ahead of Mauga. A backup his first three years, Mauga is a run-stopping liability.

ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher reports WR Albert Wilson has been "mostly quiet in training camp and the preseason."

Wilson generated some buzz with a nice finish to 2014, but has only two catches for 15 yards through two preseason games. He's been the subject of relatively few "puff pieces" from Chiefs practice since the beginning of OTAs. Wilson isn't a bad WR5 flier in 14-team leagues, but his upside is limited with Jeremy Maclin and Travis Kelce set to dominate targets in the Chiefs' passing game.

Chiefs OLB Dee Ford (rib) participated in Monday's training camp practice.

Ford was feared to have suffered a broken rib in Friday's preseason game, but he's good to go. Ford is the Chiefs' No. 3 outside linebacker behind Justin Houston and Tamba Hali. Ford's snaps should grow in his second season.
Aug 24 - 5:12 PM

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said sidelined NT Dontari Poe (back surgery) has "made big strides."

"I can just tell he's at least on schedule if not a little bit ahead," Reid said. "He's had a great attitude with the whole thing." Yahoo! Sports' Charles Robinson said there was "rising optimism" surrounding Poe's rehab this weekend. Poe has said he wants to return Week 1. While that is unlikely, it appears Poe could be back sometime in September.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said LT Eric Fisher (ankle) and RT Jeff Allen (knee) will likely be sidelined another week.

Considering starters rarely play in the fourth preseason game, it is reasonable to expect Fisher and Allen will be held out the rest of the preseason. With both tackles sidelined, the Chiefs turned to Donald Stephenson on the left side and Paul Fanaika on the right in their second preseason game.
