  • Chiefs' Derrick Nnadi: Won't return Sunday

    Nnadi (triceps) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Ravens.

    The 27-year-old was unable to practice all week, and he's now in line to miss his second consecutive game with this triceps issue. Nnadi is one of the Chiefs' best run defenders, and without him, Kansas City's defensive line could struggle to stop a Baltimore rushing attack that's averaging almost 154 rushing yards per game across 18 outings. Expect Neil Farrell and Tershawn Wharton to see increased reps at defensive tackle in Nnadi's stead.

Now that he's been placed on IR, the veteran defensive tackle would also miss the Super Bowl if Kansas City were to advance. Both Neil Farrell and Tershawn Wharton could see increased time on the Chiefs' defensive line for the remainder of the team's playoff run.

    Nnadi (triceps) won't practice Thursday, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports.

    Nnadi has been sidelined since suffering a triceps injury during Kansas City's wild-card win over the Dolphins. His continued inability to practice will likely leave him closer to doubtful for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Ravens. It'll also leave Tershawn Wharton and Neil Farrell looking at an uptick in opportunities on the field if Nnadi is unable to suit up.
