The Kansas City Star considers NT Dontari Poe (back surgery) a candidate for the reserve/PUP list.

Poe went under the knife early last month, and is staring at a three-month timeline. That means even in a best-case scenario, he's unlikely to return before October. The Chiefs don't have to make a decision on Poe's status until next month. Arian Foster is going to run wild on Kansas City in Week 1.

Chiefs signed RB Darrin Reaves, formerly of the Panthers.

They also waived RB LaVance Taylor, who generated some headlines for "earning" a 90-man roster spot by tweeting his highlight tape to the Chiefs' Twitter account. The Chiefs are a team that utilizes SPARQ scores to make decisions at the bottom of their roster. Reaves has a better SPARQ score than Taylor.
Aug 2 - 3:07 PM

Chiefs placed NT Dontari Poe on the active/PUP list.

It makes Poe a candidate for reserve/PUP. The Chiefs are holding out hope Poe will be ready to play within the first month of the year, but Poe's late-July surgery to repair a herniated disk in his back can require a lengthy recovery. Kansas City will be a team to target for plus run-defense matchups in 2015.

The Chiefs consider WR Chris Conley (knee) day to day.

Conley straining his knee during the first week of his first NFL training camp isn't a great way to start. The toolsy prospect will have ground to make up on Albert Wilson when he gets healthy.
Jul 30 - 11:38 AM

Chiefs placed TE Demetrius Harris (foot) on active/PUP.

Harris may be a candidate for reserve/PUP following two foot surgeries over the last eight months. When healthy, the converted basketball player will compete for the No. 2 tight end role behind Travis Kelce in Kansas City.
Jul 29 - 12:58 PM

Chiefs third-round WR Chris Conley exited Wednesday's training camp practice with a strained knee.

He'll likely be on the shelf for at least a handful of days and could miss upwards of a week. Conley is competing for the starting job opposite new No. 1 WR Jeremy Maclin. With 4.35 wheels, Conley would play the old Donnie Avery role.

Chiefs SS Eric Berry (lymphoma) is cancer-free and will practice with the team at training camp Wednesday.

What an awesome bit of news to end the night on a good note after it was revealed star NT Dontari Poe (back surgery) would miss all of camp and much of the season. Berry was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma in December after complaining of chest discomfort. He was immediately sent for treatment and has beaten cancer. The Chiefs now have four capable safeties in Berry, Tyvon Branch, Husain Abdullah and Ron Parker. Parker can also play corner.

Chiefs NT Dontari Poe (back surgery) could return "early" in the season.

The K.C. Star's Terez Paylor initially tweeted Poe had a "reasonable chance" to return at the "end of the season," but has corrected his error. It's definitely good news, but the Chiefs' own website has already reported Poe will sit out all of camp. There's a good chance he could begin the year on the reserve/PUP list, costing him six games. Jaye Howard will fill in for however long Poe is sidelined.
Jul 28 - 5:02 PM

Chiefs SS Eric Berry (lymphoma) is undergoing further testing, but the team expects to have more information on his status by Wednesday.

"Everything has been positive so far," coach Andy Reid said on Tuesday. ESPN's Adam Teicher expects Berry to begin the year on the reserve/NFI list, but perhaps that will change if Berry gets good news this week. His status will likely be updated in the next 48 hours.
Jul 28 - 4:36 PM

Chiefs NT Dontari Poe is recovering from back surgery to repair a herniated disk, and is out indefinitely.

Poe won't participate in camp. Per coach Andy Reid, there's a "reasonable chance" Poe returns at the "end of the season." Poe was a slow developer, but has come on as one of the league's premier nose tackles. His loss is a massive blow for a run defense that was one of the league's worst in 2014, and doesn't know what it will get from Mike DeVito and Derrick Johnson as they recover from Achilles' injuries. Poe has missed just one game in three NFL seasons. Jaye Howard is the next man up on the depth chart.
Jul 28 - 4:24 PM

ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher expects CB Marcus Cooper to be released unless he "shows significant improvement."

A 2013 seventh-rounder, Cooper initially looked like a steal as a rookie before fading badly down the stretch. His role was further decreased in 2014, where he made only four starts and played 292 total snaps. He was frequently inactive. The Chiefs infused talent at cornerback this spring by taking Marcus Peters and Steven Nelson in the first three rounds.

Chiefs WR Albert Wilson is opening camp as a starter opposite Jeremy Maclin.

Wilson is battling third-rounder Chris Conley for No. 2 duties. A 2014 undrafted free agent, Wilson steadily climbed the depth chart as a rookie before catching 12 passes over Kansas City's final four games. Wilson offers little-to-no re-draft appeal behind Travis Kelce and Jeremy Maclin for targets, but could make some noise as a cheap best-ball pick and/or DFS play this season.

ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher expects SS Eric Berry (lymphoma) to open the season on an "injury list."

Teicher left Berry off the Chiefs' 53-man roster projection to open camp. The Chiefs could conceivably place Berry on the reserve/non-football illness list to begin the season, which would cost Berry the season's first six games. Whether Berry will play at all in 2015 remains entirely up in the air.
Jul 24 - 1:20 PM

NFL suspended Chiefs RCB Sean Smith three games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

Smith pled guilty to DUI last month, receiving two years probation. He'll miss games against the Texans, Broncos and Packers before being eligible to return Week 4 against the Bengals. The Chiefs already had some cornerback concerns before Smith's suspension. While he's out, expect Phillip Gaines, first-round rookie Marcus Peters and Jamell Fleming to get the bulk of the reps at corner.
Jul 24 - 9:51 AM

Chiefs third-round WR Chris Conley had a strong offseason.

Conley mixed in with the first team at OTAs, getting outside reps while Jeremy Maclin was sidelined. He’s battling for the No. 2 receiver job, with Jason Avant likely remaining in the slot. A Combine standout with 4.35 speed, Conley only needs to beat out Albert Wilson in training camp.
