  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Another solid campaign in 2022

    Danna racked up 27 tackles (nine solo), five sacks and two forced fumbles during the 2022 regular season.

    Danna's 2022 campaign largely aligned with his previous two, but he did finish with career-high totals for both tackles and sacks. He's entering the final season of his rookie contract in 2023 and should maintain a regular role in the lineup for the Chiefs once again.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Returns in full

    Danna (calf) was a full participant in practice Wednesday.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Full participant Thursday

    Danna (calf) practiced fully Thursday.

    Danna had missed the team's last three games with a calf injury, but his ability to log a full session Thursday indicates he's moved past the issue. If the 257-pounder is indeed cleared for action against the Bills on Sunday, he'd likely serve as a rotational piece on the Chiefs' defensive line.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Sidelined Monday

    Danna (calf) was ruled inactive ahead of Monday's game against the Raiders.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Back in full Thursday

    Danna (calf) was listed as a full participant on the Chiefs' injury report Thursday.

    Danna was limited during practice last week and was ruled out for the second straight game with a calf injury during Sunday's win over Tampa Bay. Now, the 6-foot-2 defensive end looks to be healthy again after logging two tackles over 70 defensive snaps through the first two weeks of the season. Danna should once again play a rotational role behind George Karlaftis and Frank Clark moving forward.
