OL - KC - PUP
Week 2 Outlook
The Kansas City Chiefs placed OL Kyle Long (leg) on the PUP list.
As expected the lower leg injury Long suffered will keep him out of training camp. The Chiefs are hoping to have him back by Week 1, though it’s unclear when exactly he will return. The 32-year-old signed a one-year $1.5 million contract with the Chiefs this offseason after announcing his retirement in 2020. This is a situation we will continue to monitor moving forward.
Chiefs OL Kyle Long suffered a lower leg injury during OTAs.
Long reportedly suffered a lower leg injury that will keep him out of training camp. He will undergo additional tests on Thursday and is hoping to return by Week 1. The 32-year-old signed a one, year $1.5 million contract with the Chiefs during the offseason. He returned to the NFL after announcing his retirement in 2020. It's unclear exactly how long the former Chicago Bear will be out, but Long is expected to miss all of training camp. Stay tuned.
Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, OL Kyle Long after announcing his unretirement is signing a one-year deal, worth up to $5M with the Kansas City Chiefs.
After the cuts of Eric Fisher and Mitchell Schwartz the offensive line for the Chiefs was a major area of concern. Fast forward, the Chiefs have added Joe Thuney and now the recently unretired, former Pro Bowler Kyle Long. The deal for Long is a one-year contract worth up to $5M. Long had previously retired after the 2019 season with the Bears due to battling with injuries. Per Long he is apparently in great shape currently, which if true should help stabilize the Chiefs offensive line.
Kyle Long has not practiced at all this week after suffering a tricep injury.
Kyle Long not practicing spells trouble for a returning Jay Cutler as well as the mess in Chicago's backfield. Expectations should have already been tempered with their matchup against Minnesota, but now owners should really limit their expectations.
Chicago Bears offensive lineman Kyle Long is expected to play Week 1 against the Houston Texans despite having a labrum injury.
This is good news for Jeremy Langford owners, as the presence of Long should only help in what will be a tough matchup against the J.J. Watt-led Texans. With Long in the fold, Langford should operate as the every-down back and is worth consideration as a low-end RB2 play in all fantasy formats.
