Top Michael Danna News

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Inactive Sunday

    Danna (rest) will not play in Sunday's matchup with the Chargers, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports.

    The Chiefs are opting to rest Danna in favor of prioritizing his health for the playoffs. In his absence, the likes of Charles Omenihu, Felix Anudike-Uzomah, BJ Thompson and Malik Herring are all candidates to see extra snaps on the defensive line.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Could be rested Sunday

    Danna (rest) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

    Despite being a full participant at practice Friday, Danna's availability for Week 18 is in question. If the Chiefs -- who have already earned the third seed in the AFC -- opt to rest Danna on Sunday, it could pave the way for Charles Omenihu to get more snaps.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: One sack in loss

    Danna recorded four tackles and one sack in Sunday's 27-19 loss to the Packers.

    Danna recorded his first game with four or more tackles since Week 7 and came up with a big sack in the fourth quarter to force a Packers field-goal attempt. The 26-year-old played in 38 defensive snaps, which was fewer than both George Karlaftis (48) and Charles Omenihu (44). Danna has now compiled a career-high 6.5 sacks and 39 tackles on the season, but recently has been in a three-man rotation with Karlaftis and Omenihu, which should be monitored by IDP managers in the upcoming weeks.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Another sack in loss

    Danna recorded three solo tackles, including a sack, in Sunday's 24-9 loss to the Broncos.

    Danna was able to get to the quarterback again in Week 8, sacking Russell Wilson in the loss. The defensive end has now registered a sack in two straight games and three out of the last four contests overall. Danna has now compiled a career-high 28 tackles, 5.5 sacks and two pass deflections over the first eight games of 2023.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Secures sack in win

    Danna recorded six tackles (four solo), including a sack, in Sunday's 31-17 victory over the Chargers.

    Danna was able to match his season-high six tackles from Week 1 while also raising his sack total to 4.5 on the season. Now in his fourth year with Kansas City, the defensive end is just two tackles shy of matching his career-high 27 that he set in 2022.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Three tackles, including sack

    Danna recorded three solo tackles, including a sack, in Sunday's 41-10 win over the Bears.

    Danna was once again able to get to the quarterback and he is now up to 2.5 sacks on the season. The defensive end set a career high with 27 tackles and five sacks in 2022 and he's on pace to leave those numbers in the dust this year.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Returns to practice

    Danna (calf) is practicing Thursday, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.

    Danna suffered the injury in late July and has seemingly been absent from practice since. The Michigan product has been a key reserve on the Chiefs' defensive line since coming into the league in 2020, so his return is certainly good news for the team's pass-rushing rotation.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Not at practice

    Danna (calf) was absent from Saturday's practice, Matt Derrick of ChiefsDigest.com reports.

    He was also absent during Friday's practice along with tight end Jody Fortson and linebacker Drue Tranquill. Danna registered 27 tackles, five sacks and two forced fumbles in 13 games last season and is a key depth piece for a Chiefs' defensive front led by Chris Jones, Derrick Nnadi and George Karlaftis.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Another solid campaign in 2022

    Danna racked up 27 tackles (nine solo), five sacks and two forced fumbles during the 2022 regular season.

    Danna's 2022 campaign largely aligned with his previous two, but he did finish with career-high totals for both tackles and sacks. He's entering the final season of his rookie contract in 2023 and should maintain a regular role in the lineup for the Chiefs once again.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Returns in full

    Danna (calf) was a full participant in practice Wednesday.

    Danna has been dealing with a calf injury over the last few weeks, but he took a key step forward by returning to practice in full Wednesday. He should return to the field Sunday against Tennessee barring any setbacks.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Full participant Thursday

    Danna (calf) practiced fully Thursday.

    Danna had missed the team's last three games with a calf injury, but his ability to log a full session Thursday indicates he's moved past the issue. If the 257-pounder is indeed cleared for action against the Bills on Sunday, he'd likely serve as a rotational piece on the Chiefs' defensive line.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Sidelined Monday

    Danna (calf) was ruled inactive ahead of Monday's game against the Raiders.

    Danna will miss his third game in a row due to a lingering calf injury despite returning to practice in full last Thursday. With the 24-year-old out, expect Malik Herring and Carlos Dunlap to rotate in behind starting defensive ends George Karlaftis and Frank Clark.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Back in full Thursday

    Danna (calf) was listed as a full participant on the Chiefs' injury report Thursday.

    Danna was limited during practice last week and was ruled out for the second straight game with a calf injury during Sunday's win over Tampa Bay. Now, the 6-foot-2 defensive end looks to be healthy again after logging two tackles over 70 defensive snaps through the first two weeks of the season. Danna should once again play a rotational role behind George Karlaftis and Frank Clark moving forward.

  • Chiefs' Mike Danna: Remains out

    Danna (calf) is out Sunday against the Buccaneers.

    Danna picked up the injury in Week 2 against the Chargers, and he was unable to play Sunday against the Colts. His ability to log limited practices Thursday and Friday at least signals that he may be available in Week 5 against the Raiders.
