Chiefs announce Week 4 inactives


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) The Chiefs declared running back De'Anthony Thomas (hamstring), safety Eric Berry (ankle), running back Joe McKnight (Achilles), quarterback Aaron Murray, receiver Albert Wilson, offensive tackle Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and defensive end Damion Square inactive for Monday's game against New England.

Thomas had been listed as questionable.


Joe McKnight plagued by Achilles injury


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) Chiefs running back Joe McKnight has been diagnosed with a ruptured Achilles. He sustained the injury at Thursday practice.

McKnight has been more a threat as a pass-catcher than as a rusher. He caught six passes for 64 yards and two touchdowns in Week 3 at Miami.


Joe McKnight not worth your waiver-wire love


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) Alright, Chiefs backup running back Joe McKnight scored twice in Week 3, and that was a nice scene for him. Unfortunately, nobody owned him in Fantasy then, as he really came out of nowhere following Jamaal Charles' injury. Is McKnight someone Fantasy owners should be targeting moving forward following his breakout?

McKnight was a non-factor in the running game, but Alex Smith leaned on him heavily as a receiver out of the backfield. He led the team with six receptions on seven targets for 64 yards against the Dolphins, and made his biggest impact with a pair of receiving touchdowns in the red zone.

McKnight did his work while seeing the field in just 21 percent of the Chiefs' offensive plays -- he touched the ball on 46.7 percent of his snaps. That is an unsustainable number for anyone, let alone a little-used return specialist. With Charles' return looming and Knile Davis entrenched as the change-of-pace back, there is little reason to add McKnight, despite last week's success. 


Joe McKnight scores a pair of receiving touchdowns vs. Miami


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Chiefs running back Joe McKnight made his presence felt in the passing game, scoring a pair of touchdowns in a Week 3 win over the Dolphins in Miami.

McKnight caught a swing pass from Alex Smith for a gain of 13 yards, followed by a 26-yard catch on the ensuing drive in the second quarter. He followed that up with an 11-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter. He capped off his big afternoon with a four-yard touchdown grab in the fourth quarter.

McKnight caught six of the seven passes thrown his way for a team-high 64 yards and two touchdowns. He had one carry for three yards in a 34-15 victory.

The Chiefs will host the Patriots in Week 4.


Chiefs inactives Week 2


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) The Chiefs have listed QB Aaron Murray, WR Albert Wilson, RB De'Anthony Thomas, RB Joe McKnight, CB Jamell Fleming, OL Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and DE Damion Square as inactive Week 2 against the Broncos.

Thomas had previously been ruled out for the contest. 


Several Chiefs to miss game against Panthers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) In addition to running back Jamaal Charles, who's being held out as a precaution, the following Chiefs did not make the trip to Carolina for Sunday night's game: safety Eric Berry, defensive back Damond Smith, defensive end Mike DeVito, receiver Albert Wilson, defensive end Mike Catapano, linebacker Josh Mauga, defensive tackle Kona Schwenke and running back Joe McKnight.

Chiefs make roster moves


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/21/2014) The Chiefs will begin full-squad training camp on Thursday without running back Joe McKnight and defensive back David Van Dyke, reports ESPN.

McKnight (knee) and Van Dyke (hamstring) will begin on the physically unable to participate list. McKnight is a candidate to make the regular-season roster. With a strong showing both out of the backfield and as a kick returner, McKnight could win a spot as a backup to Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis.


Two Chiefs working their way back to form


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/21/2014) Chiefs coach Andy Reid said running back Joe McKnight had arthroscopic surgery on his knee after OTAs but before training camp. Despite that, he still has a chance to practice this week. 

"He's made great progress and wants to be out there and he's pretty close," Reid said. 

Reid also mentioned that cornerback David Van Dyke has a hamstring issue that the team is planning to ease him back from. Reid called him "a bit of a question mark."

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

Jets place Joe McKnight placed on PUP list


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

McKnight hopes for lead role


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/6/2013) The New York Post reports that Jets running back Joe McKnight wants to be the featured option in the backfield, ahead of Chris Ivory, Mike Goodson and Bilal Powell. “Words can’t even describe how badly I want to be that guy," McKnight said. “I’ve got an edge — a fire to me ... so I can show everybody that I can play. When I’m out there practicing it’s like I’m [ticked] off. I’ve got to play the game [ticked] off. That gives me the edge and keeps me on top of my game."
