  • Chiefs' Leo Chenal: Gets another sack Sunday

    Chenal recorded seven tackles (four solo), including a sack, in Sunday's 21-14 win over the Dolphins.

    Chenal registered in the sack column for the second straight game in Week 9. He's seen more playing time over the last couple weeks with Nick Bolton dealing with a wrist injury, and he's made good on the opportunity up to this point. After a Week 10 bye, Kansas City will host a run-heavy Philadelphia offense.

  • Chiefs' Leo Chenal: Tallies double-digit tackles

    Chenal notched 10 tackles (six solo) and one sack during Sunday's 24-9 loss to the Broncos.

    Chenal has stepped into an expanded role on defense with Nick Bolton (wrist) expected to miss two months, handling a season-high 44 defensive snaps versus Denver. The second-year pro could be worth fantasy consideration in deeper IDP formats heading into an international Week 9 matchup against the Dolphins.

  • Chiefs' Leo Chenal: Logs full practice Monday

    Chenal (hip) was a full participant at practice Monday.

    This means Chenal should be ready to go Thursday versus Detroit. With star defensive tackle Chris Jones still holding out for a contract extension, Kansas City will call on Chenal to try to slow down what figures to be a potent Lions rushing attack.

  • Chiefs' Leo Chenal: Suffers hip injury

    Chenal sustained a hip injury during  the Chiefs' preseason game against the Browns on Saturday, Matt Derrick of reports.

    The linebacker got up limping after diving for a fumble but was still able to trot to the end zone to celebrate with teammates. The 2022 third-round pick posted 35 tackles and a sack in 17 games and eight starts last season for the Super Bowl champions. This coming season, Chenal is slated to reprise a key role in Kansas City's LB corps along with Willie Gay and Nick Bolton, among others.

  • Chiefs' Leo Chenal: Solid in first pro campaign

    Chenal recorded 35 tackles (19 solo) and a sack over 17 games as a rookie with the Chiefs during the 2022 regular season.

    Chenal didn't particularly stand out as a rookie, but he did seemingly come into his own late in the season, recording nearly half of his tackles (17) over the final four weeks. He'll aim to build on that output in his sophomore season and seems likely to claim a regular role, though he may have some work to do in the pass rush and coverage departments.

  • Chiefs' Leo Chenal: Links up with KC

    The Chiefs selected Chenal in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 103rd overall.

    Chenal (6-foot-3, 250 pounds) would be comparable to a tank if he weren't so fast (4.53-second 40), and he was far and away the best player on a suffocating Wisconsin defense. He falls this far over coverage concerns, but his 4.53 speed and a 41-inch vertical at 250 pounds are stellar numbers. He's projected to start out behind Willie Gay and Nick Bolton at linebacker, but Chenal could become the best of the three in time.
