Strains neck in practice

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-07-28

Head coach Andy Reid told reporters Friday that Tranquill left practice early with a strained neck, Pete Sweeney of reports.

The severity of the injury is unclear, though Tranquill left practice on a cart along with tight end Jody Fortson as a precautionary measure. Tranquill signed a one-year, $5 million contract with the Chiefs in March after spending the last four seasons with the Chargers. He recorded career highs in 2022 in tackles (146) and sacks (five) while playing in all 17 games.

In line to sign with KC

Tranquill is slated to sign a one-year, $5 million deal with the Chiefs on Friday, Jordan Schultz of reports.

Per Shultz, Tranquill had a long list of suitors but decided to join the reigning Super Bowl champions on a team-friendly deal. The 2019 fourth-round pick supplanted Kenneth Murray for a starting spot with the Chargers last year and posted career highs in tackles (144) and sacks (five). It'll be hard to match that type of production playing alongside Willie Gay, Nick Bolton and Leo Chenal, but Tranquill should still garner a sizable role in Kansas City's linebacker corps.

Career year

Tranquill recorded 144 tackles (93 solo), five sacks, an additional five tackles for loss, a forced fumble and an interception in 17 games during the 2022-23 regular season.

Tranquill had the best season of his career, setting new career highs in tackles and sacks while also registering his first career interception. The 27-year-old led the Chargers in both solo and total tackles and also finished tied for third on the team in sacks, as he supplanted Kenneth Murray for the starting job. An unrestricted free agent this offseason, Tranquill has earned himself a starting role either with the Chargers or somewhere else.

Racks up nine tackles Sunday

Tranquill tallied nine tackles, including two for loss, in Sunday's 31-10 Week 17 win over the Rams.

Tranquill led the Chargers in stops for the third straight week, though he fell just short of extending his streak of games with double-digit tackles to three. The fourth-year linebacker is up to 138 tackles on the campaign, 12th-most in the NFL.
