DT - KC
Week 2 Outlook
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.
Chiefs DL Chris Jones (groin) practiced in full on Friday and is set to return in Week 5 against the Raiders.
Jones was inactive for the Chiefs' Monday night game against the Patriots in Week 4. It sounds like that was purely precautionary, however. The 26-year-old's return will be a boost to the Chiefs' surprisingly solid defense on Sunday.
Kansas City Chiefs superstar defensive lineman Chris Jones is inactive for Week 4 against the New England Patriots.
Jones being absent from the Chiefs defensive line is a massive loss for the defense that could have changed the complexion of the game had Cam Newton been available. This news boosts the prospects of the Patriots passing game, as being absent a double team target like Jones should help limit pressures. IDP players scrambling for a last-minute replacement should consider Chase Winovich of the Patriots.
