  • Chiefs' Nick Bolton: Finishes NFL runner-up in tackles

    Bolton compiled 16 tackles (eight solo) in the 31-13 win over the Raiders in Week 18.

    Bolton couldn't quite catch Foye Oluokun (184 total tackles) to lead the league in tackles, but his 180 on the year were good enough for him to finish second ahead of Roquan Smith (169). Bolton has tallied triple-digit tackles in each of his first two campaigns but added to his repertoire in 2022, notching a pair of sacks and a pair of interceptions. The 2021 second-round pick has lived up to his draft status and more through the two seasons, and could man the middle of the defense in Kansas City for years to come. At the very least, Bolton remains on his rookie deal for two more seasons, though the Chiefs will likely look to extend him before that expires.

  • Chiefs' Nick Bolton: Double-digit stops in win

    Bolton recorded 10 tackles (four solo) and a pass defended in Sunday's 27-24 win versus Denver.

    Bolton logged his ninth double-digit tackle outing of the season. His 165 tackles this season only rank behind Jaguars linebacker Foye Oluokun (171) in the NFL this season. Bolton should have a chance to finish as the league's leading tackler if he can post another prolific performance Week 18 against Las Vegas.

  • Chiefs' Nick Bolton: Sets career high Saturday

    Bolton recorded 17 tackles (eight solo) in Saturday's 24-10 win over the Seahawks.

    Bolton's 17 stops this past weekend now accounts for his new career high in that department, surpassing his previous 16-stop performance he put forth in Week 13 versus Cincinnati. The second-year pro now ranks No. 3 in the NFL with 154 tackles on the season, and he'll likely remain heavily involved in Kansas City's defensive game plan when the Chiefs host the Broncos on New Year's Day.

  • Chiefs' Nick Bolton: Paltry performance Week 15

    Bolton tallied seven tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 30-24 overtime victory against Houston.

    This marked Bolton's least productive outing since his three-tackle outing versus Tennessee in Week 9. While seven tackles is a solid performance for most defenders, the second-year linebacker has been a tackling machine this season, notching double-digit tackles in seven of 14 games now this season. Bolton will look to increase his production Saturday against Seattle.

  • Chiefs' Nick Bolton: Fall short of 10 tackles

    Bolton posted nine tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 34-28 win against the Broncos.

    Bolton did not record double-digit stops for the first time in four weeks, and he has eclipsed 10 stops in seven of 13 games. The second-year linebacker also made an impact in pass defense, as six of his nine stops came against Denver receivers. Bolton is now tied for fourth in the league with 131 tackles through 14 weeks. He should have a chance to put up an impressive stat line while facing Houston's shaky offense Week 15.

  • Chiefs' Nick Bolton: Logs full practice Friday

    Bolton (groin) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's matchup against Denver.

    Bolton was limited during the first two practices of Week 14 prep due to a groin injury but returned to full participation Friday and doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday. Across 12 appearances, the second-year linebacker has totaled 122 tackles, two sacks, two interceptions and one forced fumble.

  • Chiefs' Nick Bolton: Limited with groin issue

    Bolton (groin) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, per the team's official site.

    Considering that Bolton played every defensive snap against a relentless Bengals' offense this past Sunday, his limited participation in Wednesday's session could be maintenance related. The 22-year-old is coming off of a career-high 16 tackles, and he'll have two more opportunities to return to full speed before Kansas City would have to tag him with an injury designation heading into this weekend's matchup versus Denver.
