Wide receiver Marcus Kemp appeared in every game that the Chiefs played during the 2018 regular season and postseason, but he won’t be making any appearances with the team this year.

According to multiple reports, Kemp tore his ACL and MCL during Saturday’s game against the Steelers.

Kemp caught just one pass during the 2018 season, but was a core member of their special teams units and was thought to be on track to hold onto that role this year before his injury. Kemp also played one regular season game and one playoff game for Kansas City during the 2017 season.

Kemp’s injury could help undrafted rookie Cody Thompson‘s bid for a roster spot. He’s caught nine passes for 88 yards over the first two preseason games.

  1. He was playing well this preseason too. Was having a great camp.
    But lets be real, at best, he was only going to be my Homie’s 5th option,whenever he came off the bench to give a breather .
    We are stacked this year, led by yours truly

  2. Injuries really suck especially in preseason. Nfl really needs too think about their regular season product. A lot of teams are not even playing their starters anymore and I can see this turning into a whole league thing. Just use preseason for the rookies and backups too see where they fit in or don’t make the cut. No sense in loosing a starter for a game that don’t count

  3. As long as fans are stupid enough to pay full price for preseason games, the league will continue to take advantage of the suckers

  4. Mr. Tyreke-Hill says: We are stacked this year, led by yours truly
    Chances are your domestic abuse “hero” won’t reach January before more trouble emerges.

  6. Kemp was looking good this preseason but most likely is/was not going to significantly impact the Chiefs W-L record.
