Ready for Super Bowl

Sneed (knee) doesn't have a designation ahead of Super Bowl LVII versus the Eagles on Sunday.

Sneed sustained a concussion during the AFC Championship Game against the Bengals, but he was able to clear the protocol for head injuries in a little more than a week and wasn't listed on Wednesday's practice report at all. Having said that, he showed up as a limited participant Thursday due to a knee issue, only to get back to all activity one day later. With his status not in question for Sunday, Sneed is good to go as one of the Chiefs' starting outside cornerbacks, which helped him rack up 108 tackles, three interceptions and 3.5 sacks in 17 games during the regular season.

Logs limited practice Thursday

Latest Headline: Published 2023-02-09

Sneed (knee) practiced in a limited capacity Thursday.

After clearing the NFL's concussion protocol and practicing fully Monday through Wednesday, Sneed now is dealing with a knee injury Thursday and logged a limited session. Expect rookie Joshua Williams to step in if Sneed is unable to play in the Super Bowl.

Practices, clears protocol

Latest Headline: Published 2023-02-07

Sneed practiced Monday and Tuesday and has cleared the NFL's concussion protocol, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports.

The cornerback didn't practice in any capacity last week and had been given a questionable tag, but his removal from the five-step protocol clears the way for him to play in Super Bowl LVII. Sneed and fellow starting cornerback Trent McDuffie will face the unenviable task of attempting to slow down the Eagles' top two receivers, A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith.

Not practicing Friday

Sneed (concussion) didn't have a helmet at Friday's practice and watched from the side while his teammates warmed up, Pete Sweeney of reports.

While he hasn't returned to practice, Sneed's presence on the sideline shows he's made progress through the concussion protocol since exiting the AFC Championship Game with a brain injury. His status will be crucial for Super Bowl matchups, as the Chiefs don't have great CB depth behind Sneed and Trent McDuffie to deal with Philadelphia's pair of 1,000-yard wideouts (A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith).

Takes encouraging step Thursday

Latest Headline: Published 2023-02-02

Sneed (concussion) was listed as a non-participant on Thursday's practice estimate.

Sneed has now been listed as a non-participant in back-to-back days due to the concussion he suffered during last Sunday's AFC Championship Game versus the Bengals. However, it's been reported that the third-year cornerback was on the field for stretching and conditioning Thursday, which would ultimately put him in the next stage of the concussion protocol, per Matt Derrick of Sneed will have over nine more days to clear the league's five-step concussion protocol before Kansas City squares off against the Eagles in the Super Bowl.

Estimated as non-participant

Latest Headline: Published 2023-02-01

Sneed (concussion) was listed as a non-participant Wednesday on the Chiefs' estimated injury report.

Sneed suffered a concussion during the first quarter of the Chiefs' AFC Championship Game win over the Bengals on Sunday and was replaced by rookie cornerback Joshua Williams, who recorded his second career interception on a pass intended for Tee Higgins in the fourth quarter. The Chiefs' Super Bowl matchup with the Eagles will be played Feb. 12, so Sneed still has over 10 days to clear the NFL's five-step concussion protocol. It wouldn't be surprising to see the third-year defensive back sidelined for the rest of this week, but if he continues to miss practice time next week, his status for the Super Bowl could be in serious jeopardy.

Won't return Sunday

Sneed (concussion) won't return to Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Bengals.

Sneed exited Sunday's matchup in the first quarter and went to the locker room shortly after. He was diagnosed with a concussion, so he'll be unable to return to the matchup. If Kansas City advances, it's unclear whether Sneed will be available for Super Bowl LVII on Sunday, Feb. 12.

Being evaluated for concussion

Sneed is being evaluated for a concussion after exiting Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Bengals in the first quarter.

Sneed was shaken up on the first possession of Sunday's game and headed to the locker room shortly after leaving the field. If Sneed is unable to return, Joshua Williams and Jaylen Watson are candidates to see increased playing time at cornerback.

Triple-digit tackles in 2022

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-17

Sneed compiled three tackles (two solo) in the 31-13 win over the Raiders in Week 18.

Sneed's production waned over the final two weeks of the regular season, as he tallied just three tackles in each of those games after posting at least five in every game prior, but he still topped 100 total tackles for the season, boasting plenty of fantasy value for managers who picked him up. Sneed also matched a career-best mark with three interceptions and posted career-high totals for 3.5 sacks and fumbles forced (three). The fourth-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft has one season remaining on his rookie deal before he's bound for a sizable pay bump.

Active Week 18

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-07

Sneed (hip) will play in Saturday's game against the Raiders.

No surprise here, as coach Andy Reid had previously indicated he expected Sneed to suit up for the contest. Look for the third-year cornerback to take on his usual starting role opposite Trent McDuffie.

Expected to play Week 18

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-05

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Thursday that he expects Sneed (hip) to suit up for Saturday's regular-season finale against the Raiders, Charles Goldman of USA Today reports.

Sneed picked up a hip injury during Sunday's win over Denver. The third-year cornerback was then considered day-to-day to open Week 18 prep and sat out the Chiefs' practice Tuesday. However, he did log back-to-back limited sessions Wednesday and Thursday, so it appears he'll have a good chance to continue playing every defensive snap versus Las Vegas. Otherwise, Joshua Williams and Jaylen Watson could both be in line for increased roles opposite Trent McDuffie on Saturday.

Sneed (hip) was listed as a non-participant in Tuesday's practice report.

Sneed suffered the injury in Sunday's win over the Broncos, and despite his ability to return to play, he was considered day-to-day to open the week Monday. His practice status in the days ahead will be worth monitoring, especially with the Chiefs having one less day to prepare, as they play the Raiders on Saturday.

Suffers minor injury Sunday

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-02

Sneed suffered a hip pointer in Sunday's win over the Broncos and is considered day-to-day, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Sneed left the contest with the injury, but he was ultimately able to return and finish the game. However, it appears that he's still feeling the effects of the injury, and he may be held out or limited early in the week during practice. Either way, he'll work to be ready to play Saturday against the Raiders.

Returns Sunday

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-01

Sneed (hip) returned to Sunday's 27-24 win against the Broncos, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

Sneed had left the game after suffering a hip injury while returning an interception. His ability to return before the game ended was certainly good news for the Chiefs, not only for Week 17 but for Week 18 as well, when the Chiefs face the Raiders.

Suffers injury Sunday

Sneed has exited Sunday's game against the Broncos with a hip injury.

Sneed suffered the injury while returning an interception and walked off the field holding his hip. Any kind of long term absence would certainly be a blow to the Chiefs' secondary. In his absence, Joshua Williams and Jaylen Watson are likely candidates to see an uptick in work.
