  • Chiefs' Juan Thornhill: Career-high output in 2022

    Thornhill registered a career-best 71 tackles (43 solo), three interceptions and a sack over 16 games during the 2022 regular season.

    Aside from a slight downturn in his second season, Thornhill has churned out consistent campaigns on the back end of Kansas City's defense throughout his rookie contract. However, he's scheduled to hit free agency this offseason, so the Chiefs' brass will need to decide whether they want to keep him in town or allow him to explore free agency. The Chiefs have some wiggle room from a cap standpoint and not a ton of starters set to hit free agency this season, so the team could make a run at extending Thornhill.

  • Chiefs' Juan Thornhill: Makes all-around impact Week 14

    Thornhill posted seven tackles (five solo), including one sack, and a pass defended in Sunday's 34-28 victory over the Broncos.

    Thornhill contributed one of his team' six sacks in this impressive outing for the Kansas City defense. The fourth-year safety also logged two more tackles against Denver quarterback Russell Wilson, who was forced out with a concussion early in the fourth quarter. Thornhill has now played every defensive snap since returning from his one-game hiatus due to a calf injury, totaling 17 tackles over these two contests. Expect him to continue slotting in as one of the Chiefs' top defenders Week 15 in Houston.

  • Chiefs' Juan Thornhill: 10 stops in return

    Thornhill compiled 10 tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 27-24 defeat against the Bengals.

    Thornhill returned to his every-down role following a one-game absence with a calf injury. As a result, the safety finished with the Chiefs' second-most tackles behind prolific linebacker Nick Bolton (16). Thornhill also had what would have been his second interception of the season wiped away due to a defensive pass interference penalty by cornerback Trent McDuffie on the opening series of the game. Nevertheless, Thornhill still ranks second on the team in passes defended (six) this season, and he should play a prominent role in stopping the Broncos' paltry pass offense Week 14.

  • Chiefs' Juan Thornhill: Back at practice Wednesday

    Thornhill (calf) was a full participant at practice Wednesday ahead of Sunday's game at Cincinnati.

    Thornhill missed his first game of the 2022 season in Week 12 versus the Rams, but he now appears to be trending toward returning in Week 13. Kansas City's secondary will have a tough task ahead of them Sunday, lining up opposite Ja'Marr Chase (hip) and Tee Higgins.

  • Chiefs' Juan Thornhill: Missing first game of the year

    Thornhill is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Rams due to a calf injury.

    Thornhill sustained a calf injury during the Chiefs' Week 11 matchup versus the Chargers, ultimately leading to limited sessions on both Wednesday and Thursday, followed by no activity in Friday's practice. With the 27-year-old sidelined this weekend, expect Bryan Cook to operate as one of the team's starting safeties alongside Justin Reid.

  • Chiefs' Juan Thornhill: Questionable for Sunday vs. Rams

    Thornhill (calf) did not participate at practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Rams.

    Limited practices Wednesday and Thursday would have seemed to have indicated that Thornhill was on track to play in Week 12, but his absence Friday casts a thick shadow over that proposition. Should Thornhill miss his first game of the 2022 season Sunday, rookie second-rounder Bryan Cook would likely be in line to start alongside Justin Reid at safety.

  • Chiefs' Juan Thornhill: Won't return Sunday

    Thornhill has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Chargers due to a calf injury.

    Thornhill recorded three tackles (one solo) in the first half of Sunday's matchup but was ruled out shortly after halftime. Deon Bush will likely see increased work for Kansas City down the stretch, while it's not yet clear whether Thornhill will be available for next Sunday's game against the Rams.

  • Chiefs' Juan Thornhill: Career-best outing in Sunday's win

    Thornhill recorded 11 tackles (nine solo), one interception and two passes defensed during Sunday's 44-23 win over the 49ers.

    Thornhill set a new career high with 11 tackles in Sunday's matchup versus the 49ers, while he also snatched his first interception of the season in the contest. Additionally, the 27-year-old was the only Chiefs' player to play 100 percent of the team's defensive snaps. Thornhill now enters Kansas City's bye week with full momentum, and he'll attempt to replicate a similar performance in Week 9 against the Titans.

  • Chiefs' Juan Thornhill: Notches first INT of 2021

    Thornhill recorded six tackles (four solo) and his first interception of the season Sunday versus the Broncos.

    Thornhill's rookie season drew some buzz thanks to a trio of interceptions and a promising tackle total (58). While he has just one interception in each of the last two seasons -- 2021 still has some time for him to add to it -- Thornhill seems to be trending up in his tackle count. If he maintains his current pace, the third-year safety would finish out the season with a career-best of about 64 tackles.
