DT - KC
Week 3 Outlook
Chiefs DT Chris Jones has been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Thursday night's Week 15 game vs the Los Angeles Chargers.
The potential for Jones missing Thursday night would be extremely consequential in the way of diminishing Kansas City's ability to stop the run. It is possible, however, that Jones could have two negative COVID-19 tests separated by 24 hours per NFL protocol in order to participate in the primetime divisional matchup. Given that it is currently Tuesday, the possibility for that is slim, but still worth keeping an eye on as we inch closer to kickoff.
Kansas City Chiefs star defensive lineman Chris Jones missed Wednesday's practice with a wrist injury.
Jones missed Week 5 with the wrist injury. The Chiefs star pass rusher and run stopper will need to practice in some form by Friday in order to be cleared for Sunday. Jones missed every practice last week with the injury but was still listed as questionable, so there is reason to believe that he is close. This is a situation for IDP managers to monitor. Antonio Gibson would get a nice value boost if Jones is inactive for Week 6.
Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman Chris Jones is expected to move around and play some defensive end this season.
"He is an imposing player inside," defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo said. "We all know that." Jones could potentially see a higher sack rate as he sees more snaps on the outside each week.
Chris Jones is expected to practice on Friday heading into Week 9. Jones was previously placed on reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday due to being in close contact with someone who was infected.
Jones is expected to play in Week 9. Jones being active and available mainly helps IDP league managers. This slightly downgrades the Panthers' rushing attack and Teddy Bridewater.
The Chiefs placed DT Chris Jones on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.
Jones is deemed a high-risk after being in close contact with someone who was infected. He will be tested again soon, but is most likely out for Sunday’s Week 9 contest against the Panthers. His absence only helps QB Teddy Bridgewater and the Panthers’ offense on Sunday.
