Position Listing
Austin Reiter
News
Reiter (head) returned to Monday's game after being evaluated for a possible concussion, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

Reiter was shaken up in the first quarter, and was forced to exit with a possible concussion. Now that he's officially healthy, he's resumed his normal role as the team's starting center.

Bashaud Breeland
News
Breeland has served his four-game suspension and is eligible to return Sunday against the Raiders, Mike Clay of ESPN.com reports.

Breeland was suspended following an April arrest for violating the league's substance abuse policy. The Chiefs' passing defense has been sturdy through the first quarter of the season, allowing 195 passing yards per game (third in the league) and four total passing touchdowns (third). Nevertheless, Breeland should be a welcomed addition to the secondary and likely will contribute immediately.

Tim Ward
News
Ward could be a candidate to land on the Chiefs' practice squad, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

Ward missed the entire 2019 season while recovering from a torn ACL. Though he's now healthy, the Chiefs appear to view Ward more as a developmental option than as a player likely to immediately contribute in 2020.

BoPete Keyes
No Updates
Darwin Thompson
News
Thompson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

The 23-year-old had three carries for 17 yards last week as he saw his first offensive snaps since Week 3. Newcomer Le'Veon Bell is active for his Chiefs debut, pushing Thompson to the list of inactives.

Deon Yelder
News
Yelder (groin) was a full participant in Monday's practice.

Yelder dealt with a groin strain throughout training camp, but he's managed to put the issue behind him ahead of Thursday's season opener against the Texans. He's set to contribute as a reserve option in Kansas City's tight end corps.

Antonio Hamilton
News
Hamilton (groin) was a full participant during Thursday's practice.

Hamilton suffered the groin injury in the first quarter of Sunday's win over the Chargers and never returned. Now back healthy, look for Hamilton to assume his usual depth role at cornerback for Week 3 against the Ravens.

Tyreek Hill
News
Hill hauled in six of his 10 targets for 55 receiving yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 43-16 win against the Broncos.

This outing was not among one of Hill's 20-yards-per-catch performances, though he was the Chiefs' most impactful pass-catcher during Week 7. Not only did Hill corral Patrick Mahomes' only TD pass of the contest, but he also dominated the pass-catching workload with six more targets than any other player on the team. Hill had double the catches of the Chiefs' second-leading option, an encouraging development after he managed six combined receptions over his preceding two appearances against the Raiders and Bills. He'll next face a Jets defense that surrendered 17 combined receptions and 160 yards to Buffalo's Cole Beasley and Stefon Diggs on Sunday.

Armani Watts
News
Watts racked up 17 tackles (13 solo) and one sack across 16 regular-season games in 2019.

Watts rebounded from a rookie campaign in which he played just five games due to injury, managing to remain healthy the entire 2019 season and contribute as a depth option in Kansas City's secondary and on special teams. He stands to handle a similar gig for 2020.

Chris Lammons
No Updates
Matt Moore
News
Moore agreed to join the Chiefs' practice squad Sunday.

Moore was released by Kansas City after he failed to beat out Chad Henne for the backup job. Moore performed admirably when Patrick Mahomes was injured, completing 65.6 percent of his passes for 659 yards and four touchdowns over three games. He'll likely be an injury away from an elevation to the 53-man roster around the league.

Tanoh Kpassagnon
News
Kpassagnon racked up 29 tackles (21 solo), four sacks, two defended passes and one forced fumble (which he recovered) across 16 regular-season games in 2019.

Kpassagnon set career-high marks across the board in 2019, elevating above a reserve role for the first time since being selected by Kansas City in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft. He played at least 70 percent of snaps on defense in nine of the Chiefs' final 10 regular-season tilts, and throughout the team's postseason run. In three playoff appearances, Kpassagnon notched five tackles (three solo) and two sacks.

Harrison Butker
News
Butker nailed all three of his field-goal attempts and knocked home four of his five extra-point attempts Sunday versus the Broncos.

Butker continues to be accurate on field-goal attempts, missing just one of his first 14 through seven games, but he continues to work through some issues on extra-point tries, having missed one in each of the last five games he has attempted one. Despite the minor struggles in that department, Butker's ability to clean up drives with field goals should continue to pay the biggest dividends from a fantasy standpoint.

Demone Harris
News
Harris notched four solo tackles across four regular-season games with the Chiefs in 2019.

Harris also appeared in one game for the Buccaneers, during which he played 11 snaps on special teams, before being waived by the team in October and landing on Baltimore's practice squad. The Chiefs signed him to a two-year contract mid-November, at which point he settled into a reserve role at defensive end. Harris will now compete to secure a similar gig for 2020.

Emmanuel Smith
News
Smith (hamstring) signed to the Chiefs' practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The 25-year-old was waived from injured reserve after reaching an injury settlement with Kansas City in early September, but it appears he's fully recovered from the hamstring injury. Smith has yet to see action in an NFL game since going undrafted out of Vanderbilt in 2018.

Chad Williams
News
The Colts signed Williams (undisclosed) to their practice squad Wednesday, Charles Goldman of USA Today reports.

Williams was let go by the Colts on Sept. 2 with an injury settlement, but he's returned to the team now that he's healthy. The Grambling State product appeared in one game with the Colts last season, failing to haul in his only target.

Tedric Thompson
News
The Chiefs signed Thompson (shoulder) to a contract Tuesday, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports.

Thompson was waived by Seattle back in March due to a failed physical, though it had been previously reported he was at full health. The Chiefs' decision to sign Thompson is now an indication that he's put the shoulder issue behind him. Across three seasons with the Seahawks, Thompson notched 80 tackles, three interceptions and five passes defensed. He'll provide Kansas City with depth at the safety position while Juan Thornhill (knee) continues his rehab.

Omari Cobb
No Updates
Taco Charlton
News
Charlton (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Charlton didn't practice at all last week and predictably didn't play against the Broncos on Sunday, but it appears he's been cleared heading into a Week 8 matchup against the Jets. Charlton hasn't played more than 30 percent of the defensive snaps in any given game, but he's still managed to produce two sacks so far. He's slated to continue working in a situational role moving forward.

Tyrann Mathieu
News
Mathieu paved the way with a team-best eight tackles (six solo) Thursday versus the Texans.

Mathieu is no stranger to helping out in the run game, posting at least 75 tackles in each of his last three seasons. While his opening night was fairly quiet otherwise, the Honey Badger does enough on a weekly basis to warrant IDP consideration.

Patrick Mahomes
News
Mahomes went 15-for-23 passing with 200 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions during Sunday's 43-16 win against the Broncos.

Mahomes didn't exactly have to take over in this one, as Kansas City rolled the Broncos with additional TDs on both special teams and defense. Thanks to a powerful Chiefs running game, as well as a defense that ranks No. 2 in takeaways (13), Mahomes ended the month of October exceeding 30 pass attempts in just one of four games. Though he was efficient on those opportunities with a 63.6 percent completion rate and a 7:1 TD:INT, the mold of Kansas City's team has altered in a way that he isn't currently being asked to put up gaudy numbers weekly. He may do so anyway in Week 8, taking on the winless Jets at Arrowhead Stadium.

Mecole Hardman
News
Hardman reeled in his two targets for 57 yards and ran once for another 13 Sunday versus the Broncos.

Hardman's fantasy stock seemed to be on the rise following the hamstring injury for Sammy Watkins, but even that hasn't been enough to get the second-year wideout on the field consistently ahead of Demarcus Robinson. Given Hardman's explosiveness, there's likely a concern about his abilities as a blocker and route runner at this stage in his career that's keeping him from consistently seeing the field. It seems unlikely that's going to change in 2020, but it could be the case in 2021 when a number of the Chiefs' wideouts see their contracts expire.

Derrick Nnadi
News
Nnadi recorded one assisted tackle and an interception in Monday night's win over the Chargers.

The play was more of a sack-fumble, but the ball fell from Philip Rivers' hand directly into Nnadi's and was ruled an interception. The 23-year-old is up to 38 tackles (15 solo) on the year.

Damien Wilson
News
Wilson led the Chiefs with 12 tackles (five solo) in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

Wilson was the only Chiefs defender to reach double digits in the tackles column, which is slightly surprising from a guy who played just 34 percent of the snaps in Week 1. He also temporarily knocked himself out of Sunday's contest following a hit on the Chargers' Justin Herbert but passed all concussion protocols and rejoined the action. This could suggest he's in line for an even larger snap share when he's available for a full contest.

Tershawn Wharton
No Updates
Khalen Saunders
News
Saunders (elbow) was activated from injured reserve Saturday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The 24-year-old has been sidelined since suffering the dislocated elbow in the season opener, but he's back in time for Week 7. Saunders filled a rotational role with 22 tackles and one sack last season and figures to be used similarly in 2020 now that's he's healthy.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire
News
Edwards-Helaire registered 46 rushing yards and a touchdown on eight carries, adding a 17-yard catch during Sunday's 43-16 win against Denver.

Edwards-Helaire snapped his scoring drought against his divisional rival, reaching the end zone for the first time since Week 1. The rookie only garnered eight of 17 RB carries against Denver on the afternoon, but the fact that Kansas City established a dominant third-quarter lead allowed for newcomer Le'Veon Bell and backup DeAndre Washington to gain more involvement. Edwards-Helaire entered Week 7 having commanded double-digit carries in every game this season while receiving an average of 17.8 attempts per contest. Whether Bell's arrival curtails that number slightly in a more balanced game script is yet to be seen, but Edwards-Helaire remains the starting RB heading into a Week 8 matchup against the Jets.

L'Jarius Sneed
News
The Chiefs placed Sneed (collarbone) on injured reserve Wednesday.

Sneed will need to spend a minimum of three weeks on IR after suffering a broken collarbone during Monday's win over the Ravens, though due to the nature of his injury, a longer absence realistically could be in play. The rookie fourth-round pick had already earned an every-down starting role at cornerback, so his absence will be a notable blow for Kansas City's secondary.

Injury
Collarbone - Injured Reserve. Expected Return - Week 9
Chris Jones
News
Jones was a limited practice participant Wednesday with a groin injury, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

The 26-year-old sat out Week 4 with the groin issue but played in each of the past three contests, though he apparently aggravated the injury Sunday against the Broncos as he played a season-low 52 percent of defensive snaps. The fact Jones is still practicing in some capacity is a good sign, but he may need to progress to full participation by the end of the week to avoid an injury designation this weekend.

Frank Clark
News
Clark recorded four tackles (all solo) and a sack across 61 defensive snaps in Monday's win over the Patriots.

With Chris Jones (groin) sidelined for Monday's game, Clark stepped up as the leader on the defensive line, trailing only Tanoh Kpassagnon for reps in the contest among the unit. Clark now has three sacks on the season, a trend he'll look to maintain Sunday against the Raiders.

Mike Remmers
News
Remmers (concussion) agreed to a contract with the Chiefs on Friday, Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo Sports reports.

Remmers started in all 73 games he's played in over the last five seasons, and he spent 2019 with the Giants. The 30-year-old is likely to work in a reserve/swing role for the Chiefs.

Lavert Hill
No Updates
Le'Veon Bell
News
Bell registered 39 rushing yards on six carries during Sunday's 43-16 win against the Broncos.

Bell was horribly inefficient during his time with the Jets, ranking 48th among 49 qualified NFL backs with a 3.3 yards-per-carry average. The move to Andy Reid's offense has potential to revitalize Bell's career, but the 2017 All-Pro will likely have to defer No. 1 duties to Clyde Edwards-Helaire so long as the rookie is healthy. Bell broke off two separate runs of 16 yards in his Chiefs debut, while his other four attempts yielded just seven yards. Coach Reid and offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy may have some special opportunities dialed up for Bell in Week 8, with Kansas City hosting his former team in the Jets.

Sammy Watkins
News
Coach Andy Reid said that Watkins (hamstring) won't participate in practice Wednesday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

Watkins has missed two straight games due to his hamstring injury, and he'll almost certainly need to resume practicing ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Jets for any chance of suiting up in the contest. Mecole Hardman and Demarcus Robinson will benefit from added target opportunities again if Watkins misses another contest.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 9 vs. Carolina
Daniel Sorensen
News
Sorensen finished with nine tackles (seven solo) and an interception, which he returned for a touchdown in Sunday's 43-16 victory over the Broncos.

Sorensen set the tone early in this one, picking off Drew Lock and taking it to the house in the second quarter. He also collected a season-high nine tackles in the contest. Sorensen heads into Week 8 against the Jets with 38 tackles and two interceptions on the year.

Charvarius Ward
News
Wared (hand) has been cleared for Monday's game against the Ravens, Chiefs' content creator Matt McMullen reports.

Ward was limited at practice all week but will ultimately give it a go. Look for him to take on his usual workload barring any setbacks.

Daniel Kilgore
News
Kilgore is expected to sign with the Chiefs, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Kilgore spent last season with the Dolphins, but they ultimately chose not to pick up his option. The veteran center has been in the league since 2011 and will now look for a fresh start in Kansas City.

Nick Keizer
News
Keizer signed a reserve/future contract with the Chiefs on Tuesday, according to the NFL's official transaction report.

Keizer spent time with the Chiefs during the preseason, recording a touchdown in the final preseason matchup. After initially being cut ahead of Week 1, the tight end spent the remainder of the season on the practice squad. He'll now get a chance to develop in the Chiefs system this offseason as he looks to crack the 53-man roster in the fall.

Demarcus Robinson
News
Robinson snared his only target for four yards Sunday versus the Broncos.

Despite playing 67 percent of the offensive snaps, Robinson's main contribution came as a blocker in the run and screen games. That seems to be a likely reason the coaching staff continues to give him plenty of playing time. That should trail off a bit when Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is cleared to return, though no expected date has been set at this juncture.

Braxton Hoyett
No Updates
Martinas Rankin
News
Rankin's (knee) window to potentially begin practicing opens this week, Herbie Teope of the Kansas City Star reports.

Rankin has resided on the PUP list for the entire season, as the team will now have a three-week window to make a decision on activating him for the season. The Chiefs don't appear in any rush to get Rankin back to practice as he continues to recover from a knee injury suffered in Week 10 of the 2019 campaign.

Injury
Knee - Physically Unable to Perform. Expected Return - Week 9
Mitchell Schwartz
News
Schwartz (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game at Denver.

The 31-year-old aggravated his back injury during Monday's win over the Bills and will be sidelined for at least one game. Mike Remmers is expected to start at right tackle in Schwartz's absence.

Injury
Back - Questionable for Week 9 vs. Carolina
DeAndre Washington
News
Washington rushed three times for five yards and hauled in his lone target for another two Sunday versus the Broncos.

Washington was elevated to the 53-man roster Thursday and found his way into the contest late in the game with the Chiefs comfortably ahead and entering the backups. He's unlikely to see much if any, work moving forward with Cylde Edwards-Helaire and Le'Veon Bell both clearly ahead of him and Darrel Williams also vying for reps out of the backfield.

Injury
Undisclosed - Commissioner's Exempt List
Mike Pennel
News
Pennel collected a career-best 10 tackles (five solo) Monday versus the Patriots.

Pennel saw a significant bump to a 61 percent snap percentage share on defense Monday with Chris Jones (groin) sidelined and he took advantage of the opportunity with a massive tackle total. While he's not the pass-rushing threat that Jones is, Pennel could be in line for a hefty snap count again next week if Jones remains unavailable.

Ricky Seals-Jones
News
Seals-Jones (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday's game against the Ravens, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Seals-Jones is a healthy scratch for the second straight game after not playing a single snap during the season opener. Nick Keizer and Deon Yelder will be the depth options at tight end behind All-Pro Travis Kelce for Kansas City.

Alex Brown
News
The Chiefs placed Brown (knee) on injured reserve Sunday, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports.

The South Carolina State product sustained a torn ACL during Saturday's practice and is expected to miss all of the 2020 season. Brown will likely undergo surgery and look to nab a roster spot and a depth role with the Chiefs in 2021.

Injury
Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Byron Pringle
News
Pringle didn't catch a pass Sunday versus the Broncos but did return a kickoff 102 yards for a touchdown.

Pringle used the snowy field in Denver to his advantage, making a quick cut that left two Broncos defenders in the dust as he sped past the kicker to take it the distance. He also found his way on to the field for 61 percent of the snaps, ranking third among wideouts ahead of Mecole Hardman. Unfortunately, he didn't draw a target on the day and figures to see his role reduce in the coming weeks once Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is given the green light to return.

Gehrig Dieter
News
Dieter was waived by the Chiefs on Saturday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

With plenty of depth already at wide receiver, the Chiefs elected to waive the 27-year-old undrafted free agent. Expect Dieter to be considered for the team's practice squad should he pass through waivers.

Willie Gay Jr.
News
Gay posted six tackles (five solo) and a sack in Sunday's 40-32 loss to the Raiders.

Gay played just 15 defensive snaps through the first three weeks, but the rookie second-rounder is getting comfortable at the NFL level and is receiving more work as a result. He logged a season-high 47 percent snap share Sunday and capitalized with his first career sack. Gay's usage stands to rise even more after that performance, so he could carve out fantasy utility in the near future.

Darrel Williams
News
Williams logged just one offensive snap in Sunday's win versus the Broncos.

Williams had been playing a supplementary role to Clyde Edwards-Helaire out of the backfield but that will change moving forward following the addition of Le'Veon Bell. Williams' one snap should become near commonplace for him as long as both backs ahead of him on the depth chart remain healthy, and even the newly-elevated DeAndre Washington could challenge for some snaps.

Darius Harris
News
Harris was promoted to the 53-man roster from the practice squad by the Chiefs on Wednesday.

Harris was vying for a roster spot during training camp, however, he failed to make the opening week roster. The 24-year-old has never suited up in regular-season NFL action, and he'll look to add depth at the linebacker position for Week 4 if he suits up.

Travis Kelce
News
Kelce caught all three of his targets for 31 receiving yards during Sunday's 43-16 win against Denver.

The five-time Pro Bowler was proving to be the surest tight end in fantasy through the first six weeks of 2020, as he had amassed 70 receiving yards or recorded a touchdown in all six of his appearances entering Sunday. Kelce had three TDs in his preceding two games coming into the divisional tilt, but Kansas City only tallied one passing TD on 25 attempts during the drubbing of Denver. Tyreek Hill dominated the passing-game workload with 10 targets, while no other Chief exceeded four. Despite the quiet outing from Kelce, he remains a top option given both his talent and his healthy workload of eight targets per game. Kelce now heads into a Week 8 matchup against a Jets defense that surrendered 64 receiving yards to Buffalo tight end Tyler Kroft on Sunday.

Maurice Ffrench
News
The Chiefs waived Ffrench on Saturday, Nick Jacobs of 41 KSHB Kansas City reports.

Ffrench was quite productive but not very efficient in his final collegiate season at Pittsburgh, catching 96 passes for 850 yards (8.9 yards per reception) and four touchdowns over 11 games. The undrafted free agent couldn't secure a spot in the Chiefs' deep receiver room.

Nick Allegretti
No Updates
Kelechi Osemele
News
The Chiefs placed Osemele (both knees) on injured reserve Saturday.

Osemele tore tendons in both of his knees during a Week 5 loss to the Raiders, and he's expected to be out for the season. Mike Remmers is in line to handle the starting left guard duties moving forward. Osemele will be a free agent in March.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Danny Isidora
News
Isidora (foot) is in the mix to compete for the starting right guard job in training camp, Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Isidora, who was limited to just three games in 2019 due to a foot injury, has struggled when relied upon as a starter during his three-year career. Granted, he's only been given limited opportunities (six starts across 24 appearances), and he's at least previously shown competence when tasked with rotational duties. With Miami's starting right guard gig up for grabs heading into camp, the 26-year-old can't yet be counted out.

Chad Henne
News
Coach Andy Reid named Henne the Chiefs' No. 2 quarterback Sunday, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.

Henne suffered a high right ankle sprain and fractured ankle late during the 2019 preseason, causing him to begin the campaign on IR. The injuries didn't allow him to cover for Patrick Mahomes when he sat out Weeks 8 and 9 due to a dislocated kneecap. Instead, fellow vet Matt Moore got the nod, but now that Henne is healthy he'll be the first QB called upon for garbage-time work or a Mahomes absence in the coming season.

Jody Fortson
News
Fortson signed with the Chiefs' practice squad Sunday, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.

Fortson had a solid training camp with the Chiefs but couldn't secure a spot on the 53-man roster, as the team is loaded with receiver depth.

Marcus Kemp
News
Kemp reverted to the Chiefs' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Kemp logged his first offensive snaps of the season Sunday against the Broncos and caught his lone target for 11 yards in the blowout win. He may be elevated again Week 8 against the Jets depending on whether Sammy Watkins (hamstring) is available.

Rashad Fenton
News
Fenton notched 15 tackles (11 solo), four defended passes, one interception and one forced fumble across 12 regular-season games in 2019.

Fenton also had 10 tackles, one sack and one defended pass in three postseason appearances. While the 2019 sixth-round pick only managed to accrue modest numbers while playing a reserve role in Kansas City's linebacker corps, the fact that he performed well in coverage bodes well for his future with the team. He'll work to further his development this offseason.

Ben Niemann
News
Niemann tallied two tackles (both solo), including his first career sack Monday versus the Ravens.

Niemann continues to rotate in among a deep group of linebackers for the Chiefs, playing 43 percent of the snaps in Monday's contest. While it produced his first career sack, Niemann also saw a downturn in defensive snap percentage and just two tackles after racking up nine a week ago. He doesn't see the field enough at the moment to warrant IDP consideration in most formats.

Dorian O'Daniel
News
O'Daniel (knee/ankle) is available for Monday's matchup with the Ravens, Chiefs' content creator Matt McMullen of reports.

O'Daniel was added to the injury report Friday, but his full participation at Saturday's practice indicated he was trending in this directions. He has played just nine defensive snaps through two games, as he is primarily a special-teams contributor.

Michael Danna
News
Danna (hamstring) was designated to return from injured reserve Wednesday, Charles Goldman of USA Today reports.

The rookie fifth-round pick landed on injured reserve Oct. 10, but he's now eligible to resume practicing. Danna has already spent the three-game minimum on the shelf, so he could return for this weekend's matchup with the Jets.

Anthony Hitchens
News
Hitchens had five tackles (three solo) and one quarterback hit during Monday's 26-17 win over the Bills.

The 28-year-old's modest total tied for second on the team, as Damien Wilson led the way with six tackles. Hitchens has 43 total tackles through six games, and he has only one game with double-digit stops.

Alex Okafor
News
The Chiefs placed Okafor (hamstring) on injured reserve Saturday.

Okafor suffered a hamstring injury during this past Monday's win over the Bills, and apparently it was serious enough to keep him out for the next three games. It's possible this injury is related to the one that kept him out Weeks 2 and 3. Nevertheless, Okafor will aim to return Week 11 against the Raiders, and Demone Harris figures to handle an expanded role behind starter Tanoh Kpassagnon.

Anthony Sherman
News
Sherman was placed on the COVID-19 list Tuesday after potentially being exposed to the virus, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports.

The 31-year-old hasn't produced a positive test result himself, so at this point the move to the COVID-19 list is precautionary. Assuming Sherman continues to test negative, he should be able to rejoin the Chiefs relatively soon, though it's unclear if he'll be back for Monday's game against the Bills.

Eric Fisher
News
Fisher (concussion) returned to practice Thursday, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

Fisher was in concussion protocol for over a week, but it appears the veteran lineman has passed all testing since he was able to take the field once again. Barring any major setbacks, Fisher should be back on course to play Week 1.

Juan Thornhill
News
Thornhill recorded six tackles, all solo, and an interception across 73 defensive snaps in Monday's win over the Patriots.

Thornhill secured his first interception of the season off Brian Hoyer late in the first quarter. The second-year pro has now played in 89 percent of the defensive snaps this season, recording 17 tackles in the process.

Andrew Wylie
News
Wylie (illness) returned to practice without limitations Wednesday.

Wylie apparently missed Monday's win over the Ravens due to appendicitis, but it appears he's been cleared to return. The 26-year-old is expected to start at right guard Sunday versus the Patriots barring a setback.
