Albert Wilson (hamstring) is out for Week 11 against the Giants.

Wilson didn't practice this week and never had much of a chance to suit up against New York. Tyreek Hill and Demarcus Robinson will be the starters at wide receiver this week for Kansas City.
Nov 17 - 4:08 PM

Albert Wilson (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday.

Wilson looks likely to miss another game. Demarcus Robinson will continue to start opposite Tyreek Hill.
Nov 15 - 5:17 PM

Chiefs signed CB Will Redmond to the practice squad.

It's the first we've heard of the 2016 third-round bust after he was let go by the 49ers at final cuts. He missed his entire rookie year as he recovered from a torn ACL, and evidently still wasn't healthy as of September. The cornerback-needy Chiefs will see if they can capture taxi squad lightning in a bottle.
Nov 9 - 5:26 PM

Kareem Hunt played just 31-of-57 snaps (54 percent) Week 9 against the Cowboys.

It was his lowest snap share of the season and first time playing less than 71 percent of the snaps since Week 4. Hunt was also limited to just nine carries for the second time in four games. Perhaps the Chiefs are limiting the rookie's workload to prevent him from hitting the wall, but the offense is simply better when he is getting work. The coaching staff needs to figure out his workload over the bye.
Nov 6 - 10:47 AM

Demarcus Robinson caught 2-of-2 targets for 18 yards in the Chiefs' Week 9 loss to the Cowboys.

The second-year pro heads into the Chiefs' bye with 12 grabs in nine games. He's exceeded 20 yards one time.
Nov 5 - 8:18 PM

Chiefs DE Allen Bailey sprained his MCL in Kansas City's Week 9 loss to the Cowboys.

"Sprain" is a broad term for the knee. Bailey could be looking at anything from day to day to month to month. Playing roughly two thirds of the Chiefs' snaps, Bailey will have the bye week to try to get healthy for Week 11.
Nov 5 - 8:08 PM

Travis Kelce caught 7-of-9 targets for 73 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 9 loss to the Cowboys.

Kelce's fifth touchdown of the season was his third in as many games. It came on an excellent timing route with Alex Smith near the goal line. In the middle of an electric campaign, Kelce has a dream matchup for Week 11 when the Chiefs come off their bye against the Giants. The "there's always next year" G-Men have been getting pulverized up the seam.
Nov 5 - 8:01 PM

Tyreek Hill caught 2-of-4 targets for 64 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs' Week 9 loss to the Cowboys.

He added four carries for nine yards. With the Chiefs in Hail Mary territory for the final play of the first half, Hill scored one of the most sensational touchdowns you will ever see. The Chiefs set up blockers in front of Hill on a designed checkdown, and he followed them to perfection, waiting patiently for a hole to open up. Once it did, Hill used his second-to-none quicks to find the end zone. It left the Cowboys dazed, yet coach Andy Reid made no special effort to get Hill the ball in the second half. His four targets were actually his fewest of the season. It can be easier said than done to manufacture looks for an imperfect wideout like Hill, but it's something Reid hasn't had much trouble with since the start of last season. He needs to do better coming off the Chiefs' bye in Week 11. The Chiefs will get the embarrassing Giants in that one.
Nov 5 - 7:42 PM

Kareem Hunt rushed nine times for 37 yards in the Chiefs' Week 9 loss to the Cowboys, adding four receptions for 24 additional yards.

Just three of Hunt's nine totes came after halftime on an afternoon where the time of possession battle was nearly 50-50. It's the second time in four games the sensational rookie has been held under 10 carries by coach Andy Reid. Hunt was not lighting things up today — his six first half totes generated just eight yards — but he simply has to get the ball more. If you want to give Reid the benefit of the doubt, perhaps he doesn't want to overwork the rookie in what will be the longest and most grueling season of his football life to date. Reid has the Chiefs' Week 10 bye to think about it before they travel to New Jersey to take on the gone fishin' Giants in Week 11.
Nov 5 - 7:38 PM

Alex Smith completed 25-of-34 passes for 263 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Chiefs' 28-17, Week 9 loss to the Cowboys.

He added five carries for 19 yards. Smith's first pick of 2017 — seriously — was a forced throw on a fourth quarter fourth down as the Chiefs desperately tried to come back in Dallas. Smith now owns an 18:1 TD:INT ratio. His first touchdown was a Hail Mary checkdown — again, seriously — to Tyreek Hill at the end of the first half. With blockers set up in front, Smith found Hill in space. The blockers did their job, and Hill did his thing, scoring an all-world touchdown. Score No. 2 came on a short timing route to Travis Kelce. Smith has been looking a little more like his pre-2017 self the past two weeks, but has an excellent get-right matchup in the packed-in Giants for when the Chiefs come off bye in Week 11.
Nov 5 - 7:31 PM

Chiefs OLB Tamba Hali (knee) is active for Week 9 against the Cowboys.

Hali will presumably be on a snap count for his 2017 debut. Inactive for the Chiefs are LB Dee Ford, WR Albert Wilson, QB Tyler Bray, LB Ramik Wilson, OL Jordan Devey, OL Parker Ehinger, DL Jarvis Jenkins.
Nov 5 - 2:57 PM

Chiefs LB Tamba Hali has agreed to a restructured contract.

Hali agreed to have his $250,000 signing bonus and $1 million of his base salary transferred to a roster bonus due on March 1. He resumed practicing Thursday after beginning the year on the PUP list with a knee injury.
Nov 3 - 2:50 PM

Albert Wilson (hamstring) is out for Week 9 against the Cowboys.

Dee Ford (back) has also been ruled out for Sunday. Wilson wasn't able to practice this week after straining his hamstring in Monday night's win over Denver. Expect Demarcus Robinson to start opposite Tyreek Hill in Week 9.
Nov 3 - 2:25 PM

Chiefs activated OLB Tamba Hali from the PUP list.

He's set to resume practicing after missing the past two months with a knee injury. Hali was expected to be activated on Wednesday but the Chiefs waited a day due to a "slight hiccup." It will be interesting to see how Hali is used after complaining about his role this offseason. He'll be competing with Justin Houston and Dee Ford for snaps at outside linebacker.
Nov 2 - 3:31 PM

Albert Wilson (hamstring) did not practice Thursday.

It is his second missed session in a row, making it likely he will sit out this week. Demarcus Robinson will get more work with Wilson sidelined.
