  • Chiefs' Chris Jones: Fantastic in 2023 debut

    Jones recorded two tackles, including 1.5 sacks, in Sunday's 17-9 win at Jacksonville.

    A week after signing a one-year extension to return to the team, Jones made his presence felt in Week 2. He created problems for Trevor Lawrence all afternoon, and despite missing Week 1, Jones is now on pace for the third double-digit sack season of his career.

  • Chiefs' Chris Jones: Will play versus Jacksonville

    Jones will play in Sunday's Week 2 game against the Jaguars, Adam Teicher of reports.

    Jones held out all summer and prolonged it into the regular season, sitting out Week 1 against the Lions before the sides came together on a revamped one-year deal to get Jones back in the building. His return to the defense will be huge in an AFC showdown against Trevor Lawrence. It's unclear if Jones will be on a pitch count after being away from the team.

  • Chiefs' Chris Jones: Could play this week

    Head coach Andy Reid said he's preparing for Jones to play Sunday against the Jaguars, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports.

    Jones was added back to the Chiefs' 53-man roster Tuesday after working out a new incentive-laden one-year deal Monday. Reid noted that he was going to see how Jones looked at practice Wednesday before saying for certain whether the star defensive tackle would suit up this weekend after having skipped all of training camp. Though Jones may be behind his teammates from a conditioning standpoint, the Chiefs are apparently leaning toward having him play this weekend even if he's not in peak form. Jones tallied a career-high with 44 tackles and tied his career high with 15.5 sacks over 17 games in 2022.

  • Chiefs' Chris Jones: Reinstated Tuesday

    Jones (contract dispute) was reinstated from the reserve/did not report list Tuesday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    One day after agreeing to terms with Kansas City on a new, incentive-laden one-year contract, Jones is off the reserve list, but the team still has a two-game roster exemption window in which to determine when he'll get back into the lineup. The defending champs may want to see how Jones looks in practice this week before making that determination after he sat out the entire offseason, including training camp and the preseason, before missing a Week 1 loss to the Lions. As a result, it's not yet known if he'll be active Sunday at Jacksonville.

  • Chiefs' Chris Jones: Agrees to terms with Kansas City

    The Chiefs and Jones have agreed to terms on a one-year deal, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, while no new years were added to Jones' contract, the defensive lineman is slated to receive multiple incentives that should allow him to earn considerably more money this coming season. Meanwhile, Adam Teicher of relays that Jones is expected to suit up for this Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

  • Chiefs' Chris Jones: Not playing Week 1

    Jones won't be activated from the reserve/did not report list prior to Thursday's season opener versus the Lions, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

    Though he's under contract for $19.5 million in 2023 in the final year of the four-year, $80 million extension he inked in July 2020, Jones will continue his holdout into the regular season as he seeks a new deal. Jones suggested in a social media post in August that he's willing to forfeit game checks through Week 8 if he's unable to strike agreement on a new contract, though both he and the Chiefs would ideally find common ground on an extension before then. The lack of a new deal apparently hasn't soured Jones' relationship with the organization; Palmer notes Jones is expected to attend Thursday's game in a suite at Arrowhead Stadium.

  • Chiefs' Chris Jones: Still holding out, no deal imminent

    Jones, who's currently on the reserve/did not report list, still isn't with the Chiefs on Sunday, and the two sides are not close on a deal, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    As Rapoport mentions, Kansas City opens the 2023 NFL season against the Lions on Thursday, so Sunday's session is essentially a Wednesday practice of a typical game week. Per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, Jones has already accrued around $2 million in fines during his training camp holdout and also forfeited a $500,000 workout bonus. The superstar defensive tackle also will lose just over $1 million for each regular-season game he misses. Unless Jones returns to the team over the next day or two, Danny Shelton and Keondre Coburn are in line for increased roles Week 1.

  • Chiefs' Chris Jones: Put on reserve/did not report list

    The Chiefs placed Jones on the reserve/did not report list Tuesday.

    Jones has held out during the offseason while seeking a contract extension with Kansas City, and the star defensive tackle's holdout will continue following Tuesday's move. The two sides weren't close to an agreement at the start of training camp and Jones hinted last week that he's willing to hold out until Week 8. He'll have to forfeit his game checks for every contest he misses, but he recently said that he "can afford it." Danny Shelton and Keondre Coburn are candidates to see increased playing time during Jones' absence.
