Kansas City Chiefs Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Morse recently had a screw removed from his ankle and is making progress in his recovery, the Chiefs' official site reports.
Impact: Morse continues to work his way back from a foot injury that sent him to injured reserve late in 2018. While he hasn't done much of anything during the offseason program, his level of participation at various points in training camp should be a better indicator of his availability for Week 1.
News: Hunt (hamstring) -- who did not participate in minicamp -- is expected to be ready for the beginning of training camp, the Chiefs' official site reports.
Impact: Hunt was likely held out of the offseason workouts as a precautionary measure to avoid a longer-term issue for the second-year tailback, but it doesn't appear to be a major concern with a month to rest up before training camp. More alarms should sound off if he remains sidelined into a significant portion of camp.
News: Ford (back) did not participate in team during the offseason workouts, but Chiefs coach Andy Reid expects him to be healthy for the start of training camp, the Chiefs' official site reports.
Impact: Following the release of veteran Tamba Hali this offseason, the Chiefs appear content to give Ford the reins to the starting role opposite Justin Houston after totaling 13 tackles (11 solo) and two sacks during an injury-shortened 2017 season that saw him play just six contests. Only a season removed from a 10-sack campaign in 2016, Ford could be in line for another big output in 2018 if he can stay healthy.
News: Conley (Achilles) took part in some of the 11-on-11 team drills, usually signifying that a player is healthy, the Chiefs' official site reports.
Impact: Conley landed on injured reserved in mid-October after suffering a ruptured Achilles in Week 5 against the Texans, ending what was expected to be a potential break out season. Entering his fourth season as a pro, Conley's best showing to date came in 2016 when he racked up 44 catches for 530 yards. Despite his ideal size (6-foot-3), Conley has turned in just one touchdown in his first three seasons and the lack of production overall led the Chiefs to bring in Sammy Watkins this offseason. Conley could still factor into three-receiver sets, but he may have missed his opportunity to emerge from the pack as a consistent contributor.
