The Chiefs will open the season without defensive tackle Mike Pennel.

Pennel has been suspended for the first two games of the year, according to the league’s transaction wire

Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo recently alluded to the possibility of the Chiefs having to start the season without Pennel, but there had been no announcement about the length or the reason for the suspension.

During his time with the Packers, Pennel was twice suspended for violations of the league’s substance-abuse policy.

Pennel joins Bashaud Breeland as members of the Chiefs’ defense who will start the season on suspension. Breeland was suspended for four games.

Last year Pennel played 14 percent of the Chiefs’ defensive snaps.

  1. He may have only played 14% of the snaps, but his presence was felt for all 14%. He also joined the team late in the season. I was glad to see him come back this year.

  2. the chiefs lost one game after signing pennel last year, and it was when they foolishly made him inactive against the titans. he was active for the AFCG rematch and was a big part of how they stopped derrick henry. the guy is a monster.
