  • Saints' Derrick Gore: Signs futures contract

    The Saints signed Gore to a reserve/future contract Monday. Gore joined the Saints' practice squad during the 2022 campaign after being waived by Kansas City with an injury settlement at the end of August. He totaled 59 touches for 361 yards and two scores across 11 appearances with the Chiefs last year, but he wasn't elevated for any games while with New Orleans this year. With his new contract, he'll now have a chance to compete for a roster spot during offseason work and into next year's training camp.

  • Derrick Gore: Sticking with NOLA

    The Saints re-signed Gore to the practice squad Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of reports. Gore initially signed with New Orleans' practice squad last Wednesday before being cut by the team Tuesday. While the 27-year-old running back was not elevated during the team's Week 10 loss to the Steelers, he'll land back on the team's practice squad along with fellow veteran David Johnson, who was also signed Wednesday. With No. 2 running back Mark Ingram (knee) expected to remain out at least one more week and Dwayne Washington apparently relegated to a special-teams role, Gore and Johnson could jockey for a spot on the team's game-day roster during Sunday's game against the Rams.

  • Derrick Gore: Time up in New Orleans

    The Saints cut Gore from their practice squad Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of reports. The Saints signed Gore to their practice squad last Wednesday, but he's since been let go as a result of Tuesday's transaction. The 27-year-old was waived by the Chiefs with an injury settlement in late August after injuring his thumb in a preseason game, but he'll now search elsewhere to continue his playing career.

  • Derrick Gore: Takes part in workout

    Gore (thumb) worked out for the Colts on Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Gore was waived by the Chiefs prior to the start of the 2022 campaign due to a thumb injury, but he's now healthy and is battling for another opportunity. He was one of four running backs to take part in Wednesday's workout for the Colts.

  • Derrick Gore: Let loose with injury settlement

    The Chiefs waived Gore (thumb) from injured reserve with an injury settlement Thursday, Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus reports. Gore was placed on IR shortly after Kansas City's second preseason game against the Commanders last Saturday, where he likely picked up the issue that landed him on the list. Following Thursday's transaction, the 27-year-old has the ability to sign elsewhere once he demonstrates that he's past his thumb injury.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Placed on IR

    The Chiefs placed Gore (thumb) on injured reserve Tuesday, Pete Sweeney of reports. Gore presumably picked up the thumb injury during Saturday's preseason game, but the specifics of the issue remain unclear. Barring an injury settlement, Gore will miss the remainder of the 2022 campaign. Gore was never supposed to garner a major role in Kansas City's backfield, but his absence could make it easier for Ronald Jones to make the initial 53-man roster.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Won't play in preseason finale

    Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said Tuesday that Gore (thumb) won't play in Thursday's preseason finale against the Packers, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports. Gore rushed five times for 11 yards across 18 offensive snaps during Saturday's preseason game against the Commanders and presumably picked up the thumb injury as well. The severity of the issue remains unclear, but it could cost him a spot on the initial 53-man roster. Clyde Edwards-Helaire remains the projected starter with Jerick McKinnon and Ronald Jones as primary backups, but rookie Isiah Pacheco has also made waves during training camp. With those four healthy, Gore will have a tough time hanging on to a spot during the final roster cuts, especially if the thumb injury remains a concern.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Signs exclusive rights tender

    Gore officially signed his exclusive rights contract tender Thursday, which will keep him with the Chiefs this season, Aaron Wilson of reports. Gore should provide depth behind fellow Kansas City running backs Clyde Edwards-Helaire and newly-acquired Ronald Jones. The 27-year-old Gore saw the first regular-season action of his NFL career in 2021, registering 51 carries for 256 yards and two touchdowns along with 21 receptions for 80 yards in 11 contests, with Edwards-Helaire in and out of the lineup throughout last season.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Inactive Sunday

    Gore is inactive for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Bengals. With Darrel Williams (toe) active, Gore is the odd man out in Kansas City's backfield Sunday. Also in the mix on that front are Jerick McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who shared work in last weekend's divisional-round win over Buffalo.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Role fluctuates in 2021

    Gore finished the 2021 campaign with 51 rushes for 256 yards and a pair of touchdowns while reeling in eight of his nine targets for 105 yards. Gore's role changed over the course of the year depending on the health of Kansas City's other backs. He recorded 22 carries for 110 yards and caught four passes for 69 yards over the final three weeks of the regular season. He enters the offseason as an exclusive rights free agent, so he will likely be back with the team next season.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Splits lead role

    Gore recorded seven carries for 30 yards in Saturday's 28-24 win over Denver. Gore tied for the team lead with seven carries after Darrel Williams (toe) was forced out of the game early. In Williams' absence, Gore took over as the lead back on the ground, though his longest rush of the day went for only six yards. Meanwhile, Jerick McKinnon served as the change-of-pace back, tallying five carries and three receptions while also working more efficiently than Gore. Should Williams and Clyde Edwards-Helaire (shoulder) be sidelined for any part of Kansas City's playoff run, Gore would likely continue to get the majority of the work on the ground with McKinnon serving as the pass catcher out of the backfield.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Productive off bench

    Gore ran for 43 yards on 12 carries and caught three passes for 61 yards on three targets against Pittsburgh on Sunday. Gore saw more usage than usual due to starter Clyde Edwards-Helaire suffering a collarbone/shoulder injury, and it wasn't immediately clear after the game how severe that injury might be. If Edwards-Helaire misses time then Gore would compete with Darrel Williams for the remaining usage, with Williams likely the favorite to get the first shot. Even if Gore is technically behind Williams, though, a workload split between the two could be necessary if Edwards-Helaire can't play against the Bengals in Week 17.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Absent from offense in Week 15

    Gore didn't log an offensive snap in Thursday's game against the Chargers. Gore's workload had fluctuated in recent weeks, but he wasn't part of the offensive game plan in any capacity Thursday with both Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Darrel Williams available. It's unlikely that will change much moving forward as long as the pair are both available.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Produces in garbage time

    Gore recorded nine rushes for 66 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 48-9 win over Las Vegas. He added two receptions for 23 yards. Gore had only one carry and one target at halftime, though he got extended run in the final two quarters with Kansas City comfortably ahead. He recorded the team's longest gain of the day on a 51-yard rush to the end zone in the middle of the fourth quarter. Gore is likely to serve as the Chiefs' third running back moving forward, but this type of workload shouldn't be projected for what figures to be a closer matchup in Week 15 against Los Angeles.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Won't play Sunday

    Gore (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Cowboys, Adam Teicher of reports. Gore won't be needed for now with the return of Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee). Gore chipped in 10-plus snaps of offense each of the last three weeks, netting 20 carries for 80 yards and a touchdown. He'll likely need another injury to the Chiefs backfield to see the field again this season.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Just three carries in Week 9

    Gore ran for 14 yards on three rushes and reeled in his lone target for six yards Sunday versus the Packers. Gore didn't see anywhere near the involvement in Week 9 that he saw the contest prior, when he logged 11 touches. Gore is still firmly behind Darrel Williams in the pecking order and figures to fall further down the depth chart once Clyde Edwards-Helaire is ready to return from injured reserve.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Signed off practice squad

    Gore was brought up to the Chiefs' active roster Tuesday. The 26-year-old was signed to the practice squad in September but has yet to make his professional debut. With Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) going on injured reserve, Gore will serve as the Chiefs' third option at running back for the time being.

  • Chiefs' Derrick Gore: Rumbles for 56-yard TD

    Gore took six carries for 26 yards and caught five passes for 80 yards and a touchdown in Friday's 28-26 preseason win over Minnesota. With Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) and Darrel Williams (head) both unavailable, Jerick McKinnon got the start and the first three carries before sharing snaps with Darwin Thompson on the second drive. Gore then came in for the third drive with the second-string offense, but he ended up having the best night of the team's three healthy running backs, highlighted by a 56-yard TD on a screen pass in the third quarter. Even with the strong effort, Gore doesn't have good odds to make the Week 1 roster, though he could stick around if either Edwards-Helaire or Williams is in doubt for the season opener.

  • Derrick Gore: Cut from practice squad

    The Chargers cut Gore from the practice squad Friday. The Chargers are healthier in the backfield now that Austin Ekeler is back from IR. They're adding depth elsewhere with JJ Molson signing with the practice squad, and Gore was let go in a corresponding move. An undrafted rookie out of Louisiana-Monroe, Gore has yet to make his NFL debut.

  • Derrick Gore: Joins Chargers' practice squad

    Gore signed to the Chargers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log. The 25-year-old spent training camp in Los Angeles and was let go at roster cutdowns, but he'll receive another chance with the organization. Gore went undrafted out of Louisiana-Monroe in 2019 and is still looking to make his NFL debut.
