Chiefs coach Andy Reid expects RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif (knee) to return next week.

Duvernay-Tardif has missed the last two games. The Chiefs also plan to get Mitch Morse back coming off their extended layoff. It's a huge upgrade for the interior line.

Demarcus Robinson caught 5-of-8 targets for 69 yards in the Chiefs' Week 7 loss to the Raiders.

A 2016 fourth-rounder, tonight was the most involved Robinson has ever been on offense. Pressed into duty by injuries in the Chiefs' receiver corps, Robinson made some nice chain-moving grabs. Robinson was a compiler in college, but that sort of role isn't available behind Kareem Hunt, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce in the Chiefs' big-play offense.

Albert Wilson scored a 63-yard touchdown in Kansas City's Week 7 loss to the Raiders.

Wilson's score was one of only two targets on the evening. It was as fluky of a touchdown as you will ever see, as Raiders DB Keith McGill should have had an interception. Instead, the ball clanged off his hands right into Wilson's mitts, who promptly housed it for the score. With the Chiefs running low on healthy wideouts, Wilson could have some WR5 appeal in the season's second half.
Oct 20 - 12:39 AM

Travis Kelce caught 4-of-5 targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 7 loss to the Raiders.

The touchdown was Kelce's third of the season. It was a quiet night by Kelce's 2017 standards, but he's now caught at least four passes in 6-of-7 games. He's averaging 60 yards, putting him on pace for 967. That should increase. Kelce and the Chiefs host the Broncos in Week 8.
Oct 20 - 12:24 AM

Kareem Hunt rushed 18 times for 87 yards in the Chiefs' Week 7 loss to the Raiders, adding four receptions for 30 additional yards.

Hunt got the ball five times on the Chiefs' opening drive, including the first four plays, but his usage was frustratingly scattershot thereafter. Hunt has now eclipsed 100 yards from scrimmage in each of his first seven NFL games, but the Chiefs still go bafflingly-long stretches without getting him the ball. Either way, the numbers have been there every week, and Hunt has left no doubt he's an elite player both in real life and fantasy. Matchups do not matter for the third-round rookie.
Oct 20 - 12:23 AM

Tyreek Hill caught 6-of-8 targets for 125 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 7 loss to the Raiders.

Hill added two rushes for seven yards. The Chiefs entered Week 7 manufacturing frustratingly few touches for their mega-play threat, but finally got proactive this evening, getting the ball in Hill's hands a number of different ways. The biggest play of the night was Hill's 64-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Dispatched downfield in ordinary fashion, Hill took ownership of David Amerson's soul, running right by the 6-foot-1, 205-pound corner. The 100-yard game was Hill's first since Week 1, though he's now averaging a healthy 74 yards. It's going to remain a wild ride, and this peak could be followed by a valley in Week 8 against the Broncos' elite secondary.
Oct 20 - 12:14 AM

Alex Smith completed 25-of-36 passes for 342 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Chiefs' 31-30, Week 7 loss to the Raiders.

The 342 yards were the fourth most of Smith's career, while he's now the owner of a 15:0 TD:INT ratio through the season's first seven games. Victimized by awful calls by the referees and big plays by the Raiders, the Chiefs did everything but win. "New Alex" continued to aggressively target his weapons downfield, resulting in a 64-yard Tyreek Hill touchdown and fluky 63-yard Albert Wilson score on a ball that should have been picked. Smith's hot play will be put to the test in Week 8, where the Chiefs host the Broncos' imposing defense for Monday Night Football.

Albert Wilson (knee) is active for Week 7 against the Raiders.

Wilson was trending toward not playing before being declared a game-time decision. He's evidently healthy enough to soak up snaps for the Chiefs' banged up receiver corps. Wilson is not an advised Week 7 fantasy option. Inactive for the Chiefs are RB Charcandrick West, OG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, C Mitch Morse, QB Tyler Bray, LB Ramik Wilson, CB D.J. White and DL Roy Miller.
Oct 19 - 7:00 PM

Charcandrick West (concussion) is out for Week 7 against the Raiders.

It'll be Akeem Hunt working as the change-of-pace to Kareem Hunt Thursday night.
Oct 18 - 12:36 PM

Albert Wilson (knee) is questionable for Week 7 against the Raiders.

Wilson missed Week 6 and didn't practice Monday or Tuesday before getting in a limited session Wednesday. He's likely to be a game-time call. Demarcus Robinson and De'Anthony Thomas filled in at receiver in Week 6.
Oct 18 - 12:35 PM

Tyreek Hill (neck) is practicing in full for Week 7.

It's the best possible news for the Chiefs, who will be missing Albert Wilson (knee) on the short week in Oakland. Hill has been mostly quiet since his Week 1 eruption against the Patriots, but will be needed for major targets against the Raiders. The Chiefs are perilously low on healthy receivers.
Oct 17 - 5:03 PM

Albert Wilson (knee) missed Monday and Tuesday's practices.

Barring a surprise turnaround, he's going to miss Thursday's game against the Raiders, leaving the Chiefs extremely thin at receiver.
Oct 17 - 5:01 PM

Tyreek Hill (neck) was listed as a full participant on the Chiefs' practice report Monday.

The Chiefs only conducted a walkthrough, but this is notable both because it confirms Hill did not suffer a concussion and puts him on track to play Thursday night against the Raiders. He will be an upside WR2 in that matchup.
Oct 17 - 9:05 AM

Chiefs re-signed RB C.J. Spiller.

Spiller has been off and on Kansas City's roster since the preseason; he's now been signed four different times by the Chiefs this year. Spiller's return is an indication Charcandrick West (concussion) will miss Thursday night's game.
Oct 16 - 4:23 PM

Appearing on the halftime show of Sunday Night Football, PFT's Mike Florio reports Tyreek Hill did not suffer a concussion in Week 6 against the Steelers.

Hill took a wallop from a pair of Steelers late in the fourth quarter at the end of a punt return and missed the Chiefs' final offensive possession. He was being checked for a concussion, but apparently didn't sustain one. Hill should be good to go for Thursday night's tilt with the Raiders for Week 7.
