  • Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Stays with Chiefs

    The contract details are not yet known, but he'll remain with the team that selected him in the third round of the 2018 Draft. Nnadi is coming off a 2021 campaign in which he played all 17 regular-season games, recording 38 tackles (21 solo) and a career-high three sacks.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Back to full speed

    Nnadi (hip) was a full participant at Thursday's practice.

    Nnadi was limited Wednesday but quickly shook off the injury. The 2018 third-round pick will be ready for Sunday's matchup against the Chargers. Through two games, Nnadi has posted two solo tackles across 50 defensive snaps.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Limited at practice Wednesday

    Nnadi (hip) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

    The hip injury first cropped up in mid-August, but Nnadi has played in the first two games of the season and recorded two solo tackles in a rotational role. The 25-year-old should be able to avoid an injury designation for Sunday's matchup with the Chargers if he can put in a full practice Thursday or Friday.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: injures hip in practice

    Coach Andy Reid said Nnadi was dealing with a hip flexor ailment Thursday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Nnadi played in 15 games last year, recording 47 tackles before a knee injury prevented him from hitting the field for the last game of the regular season. Minor hip flexor injuries tend to take one to three weeks to recover from, so Kansas City will likely take things slow with the fourth-year defensive tackle just to make sure he's ready to go for Week 1.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Considered questionable

    Nnadi (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

    Nnadi suffered a knee injury during the practice week and sat out Friday's session. The third-year defensive tackle is in danger of missing the first game of his NFL career. He has 47 tackles through 15 games this year, one stop shy of tying last year's career high in the category.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Limited Monday

    Nnadi (ankle) was a limited participant in Monday's practice.

    Nnadi will have two more opportunities to up his level of practice participation ahead of Thursday's season opener against the Texans. In the event that the starting defensive tackle is in any way limited Week 1, Khalen Saunders would stand to handle increased snaps.
