Ross reeled in their only target for six yards during Thursday's 21-20 defeat to the Lions.

Ross made some waves during training camp to secure his spot on the 53-man roster, but he didn't play many snaps in the opener. The Chiefs rotated in receivers in the opener, with seven different wideouts notching at least one target. That said, Ross played the least snaps among the group, suggesting he's far enough down on the depth chart that he's unlikely to produce a fantasy-worthy stat line on a weekly basis.

Secures roster spot

Ross has made the Chiefs' initial 53-man roster, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

Ross' roster spot is intact as the initial 53-man roster deadline approaches. Though the Chiefs will certainly make a number of further transactions, it looks like the former Clemson star has earned a role in Kansas City's wideout room to begin the regular season. Ross lost his rookie year to a foot injury, but enters Year 2 fully healthy and ready to compete for snaps with Kadarius Toney (knee), Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Skyy Moore and Rashee Rice.

Already back at practice

Ross (leg) returned to practice Wednesday, Pete Sweeney of reports.

Ross left practice with a leg injury Tuesday, but he's already back on the field in full pads. It looks like the second-year wideout has avoided an injury scare, though if the Chiefs are feeling cautious it's possible he could be held out of Saturday's preseason game against the Cardinals. Ross is competing to earn a roster spot and a role in Kansas City's wideout room.

Injury may not be serios

Ross (leg) departed Tuesday's practice early but is believed to have avoided a serious injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Ross thankfully many not have to miss much time due to the leg injury that required him to leave Tuesday's session on a cart, but it could well impact his status for Saturday's preseason game against Arizona. Every rep is key for Ross, who is competing to make the regular-season roster after having lost his rookie campaign due to a foot injury. His chances of earning a role in Kansas City's receiving corps will be aided the earlier he's able to get back on the field.

Departs with injury

Ross (undisclosed) left Tuesday's practice early on a cart due after meeting with the medical staff, Pete Sweeney of reports.

Ross has logged a strong training camp as he pushes for a roster spot, so fantasy managers will need to monitor the severity of his current injury. The former Clemson star missed his rookie season due to a foot injury, but he's facing opportunity in Kansas City's wide receiver corps heading into the 2023 regular season, if healthy.

Pushes for roster spot

Ross, who has had strong training camp, continues to push for a roster spot as the Chiefs' preseason opener approaches, Kevin Patra of reports.

The report notes that Ross, who has moved past a foot injury that kept him injured reserve all of last season, has seen some first-team reps during training camp and has looked good in doing so. At this point, Kadarius Toney (who has been sidelined of late with a knee issue), Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Skyy Moore and rookie Rashee Rice profile as the Chiefs' top WR options, but if Ross continues to excel as the summer progresses, the 6-4, 210-pounder could secure a depth role in the team's passing offense to start the coming season.

Gets first-team reps in practice

Ross saw first-team reps during the Chiefs' first full-team practice Sunday, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

Ross is among numerous candidates vying anywhere from a roster spot to potential offensive reps. While Ross' start to camp is slightly encouraging, there will likely be a battle throughout camp for regular roles on offense.

Moves past foot injury

Ross, who is recovering from a foot injury that kept him injured reserve all of last season, has been participating in recent throwing sessions with quarterback Patrick Mahomes, Charles Goldman of USA Today reports.

Ross, who signed with Kansas City last spring as an undrafted free agent, spent his entire rookie campaign in rehab mode after undergoing surgery to repair a nagging foot injury. Now that the 23-year-old has had time to move past the issue, Ross appears poised to compete for a role in a Kansas City wideout corps that also includes Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Kadarius Toney, Skyy Moore and Richie James. At 6-foot-4 and 210 pounds, Ross brings good size to the mix, but the Clemson product will need to prove his health in the coming months in order to secure a roster spot ahead of the 2023 season.
