Anthony Hitchens Mic'd Up: "Dirty Dan does it again!" | Week 6 vs. Bills
4 DAYS AGO
Five tackles Monday
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.
6 DAYS AGO
Returns to practice
Hitchens (illness) returned to practice Friday and is expected to play Monday versus the Bills.
Hitchens missed just one practice with a sickness that wasn't related to COVID-19, and he's shaken it off and will begin preparing for a crucial AFC showdown. The 28-year-old linebacker has piled up 37 tackles and a pass breakup through five contests despite not yet having played more than 80 percent of the defensive snaps in a game.
Dealing with illness
Hitchens (illness) was not present at Thursday's practice, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.
Hitchens is dealing with an illness unrelated to COVID-19, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports. Nonetheless, the starting linebacker's absence from practice is enough to manufacture some doubt about his Week 6 availability. He'll have two more chances to retake the practice field ahead of Monday's contest in Buffalo.
Posts nine tackles
Hitchens made nine tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 40-32 loss to the Raiders.
Hitchens briefly left the game due to a hand injury but was able to return and lead the team in tackles. The 28-year-old middle linebacker has a team-high 37 tackles through five games. This hand injury could be a lingering issue, but as long as he's on the field, Hitchens should be a solid IDP contributor.

Returns to action Sunday
Hitchens (hand) returned to Sunday's game against the Raiders, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.
The 28-year-old exited during the first half due to the hand injury and was questionable to return, but he was able to retake the field. Hitchens leads the defense with nine tackles (seven solo) with the Chiefs trailing 40-32 at the two-minute warning.
Dealing with injury
Hitchens (hand) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Raiders.
The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but, the veteran was forced to leave the contest early in the second quarter. As long as Hitchens is sidelined, look for Ben Niemann to take over as the team's middle linebacker.

Nine tackles in win
Hitchens recorded nine tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 23-20 win over the Chargers.
Hitchens finished tied for second on the team in tackling. Kansas City had trouble defending the run at times against the Chargers, surrendering 183 yards on 44 carries. Things will get no easier for Hitchens and the Chiefs as they travel to take on a dominant Baltimore rushing attack in Week 3.
