  • Chiefs' Drue Tranquill: Posts another solid campaign

    Tranquill compiled 79 tackles (54 solo), including 4.5 sacks, and forced two fumbles during the 2023 regular season.

    While the Chiefs still counted on Tranquill to produce when he was on the field, his 552 snaps in 2023 pale in comparison to the 935 he logged a season ago in the final year of his rookie deal with the Chargers, hence the near halving of his 146 tackles from 2022. Tranquill's contract granted him just a season in KC, so he'll head to the offseason looking for a new deal in 2024.

  • Chiefs' Drue Tranquill: Set to suit up Sunday

    Tranquill (concussion) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's Week 15 game against New England.

    Tranquill sat out last Sunday's loss to the Bills while in concussion protocol, but he appears to be past the issue, as the Chiefs didn't give him an injury designation for Week 15. The veteran linebacker should thus be able to suit up and resume his near every-down role this Sunday against the Patriots. Prior to an early exit against Green Bay in Week 13 due to the head injury, Tranquill had logged at least seven tackles in a season-high four straight games.

    Tranquill (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

    Tranquill was ruled out for Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Bills after sustaining a concussion in Week 13 against the Packers. His full participation Wednesday indicates that he is on the right track to return for Week 15 against the Patriots. Tranquill has 73 tackles (51 solo), including 3.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles in 12 games this season.

  • Chiefs' Drue Tranquill: Missing Week 14

    Tranquill (concussion) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Bills, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports.

    The 28-year-old linebacker suffered a concussion during the Chiefs' Week 13 loss to the Packers, so it's no surprise that he's been ruled out ahead of Sunday's affair. With Tranquill missing time, expect Leo Chenal and Jack Cochrane to see increased work in Kansas City's linebacker corps.

  • Chiefs' Drue Tranquill: Stuck in concussion protocol

    Tranquill remains in concussion protocol and won't practice Wednesday.

    Tranquill suffered a concussion in Sunday's 27-19 loss to the Packers and is still working through the league's five-step protocol to gain clearance to play. He'll likely need to get back on the field and ultimately log a full practice Thursday or Friday to have a chance to play against the Bills in Week 14.

  • Chiefs' Drue Tranquill: Tallies sack in third straight game

    Tranquill notched 11 tackles (seven solo), one sack and one forced fumble during Sunday's 24-9 loss to Denver.

    Tranquill has cemented himself as a legitimate pillar of Kansas City's defense, once again leading the team in tackles. His sack came while he was matched up against a scrambling Russell Wilson on fourth-and-short, as he managed to stop the quarterback short of the first-down line. The Chiefs will need Tranquill to keep up his production Week 9 versus Miami.
