Danna has agreed to a three-year deal to remain with the Chiefs, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Danna -- whose deal is reportedly worth $24 million and includes $13 million guaranteed, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network -- established career-highs last year by recording 6.5 sacks and 50 tackles in 16 regular-season games for Kansas City. With an extension now in place, the 26-year-old is set to continue in his starting defensive end role with the team that took him in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Inactive Sunday

Danna (rest) will not play in Sunday's matchup with the Chargers, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports.

The Chiefs are opting to rest Danna in favor of prioritizing his health for the playoffs. In his absence, the likes of Charles Omenihu, Felix Anudike-Uzomah, BJ Thompson and Malik Herring are all candidates to see extra snaps on the defensive line.

Could be rested Sunday

Danna (rest) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Despite being a full participant at practice Friday, Danna's availability for Week 18 is in question. If the Chiefs -- who have already earned the third seed in the AFC -- opt to rest Danna on Sunday, it could pave the way for Charles Omenihu to get more snaps.

One sack in loss

Danna recorded four tackles and one sack in Sunday's 27-19 loss to the Packers.

Danna recorded his first game with four or more tackles since Week 7, and came up with a big sack in the fourth quarter to force a Packers field-goal attempt. The 26-year-old played in 38 defensive snaps which was fewer than both George Karlaftis (48) and Charles Omenihu (44). Danna has now compiled a career-high 6.5 sacks and 39 tackles on the season, but recently has been in a three-man rotation with Karlaftis and Omenihu which should be monitored by IDP managers in the upcoming weeks.

Another sack in loss

Danna recorded three solo tackles, including a sack, in Sunday's 24-9 loss to the Broncos.

Danna was able to get to the quarterback again in Week 8, sacking Russell Wilson in the loss. The defensive end has now registered a sack in two straight games and three out of the last four contests overall. Danna has now compiled a career-high 28 tackles and 5.5 sacks while also deflecting two passes over the first eight games of 2023.

Secures sack in win

Danna recorded six tackles (four solo), including a sack, in Sunday's 31-17 victory over the Chargers.

Danna was able to match his season-high six tackles from Week 1 while also raising his sack total to 4.5 on the season. Now in his fourth year with Kansas City, the defensive end is just two tackles short from matching his career-high 27 that he set in 2022.

Three tackles, including sack

Danna recorded three solo tackles, including a sack, in Sunday's 41-10 win over the Bears.

Danna was once again able to get to the quarterback and he is now up to 2.5 sacks on the season. The defensive end set a career high with 27 tackles and five sacks in 2022 and he's on pace to leave those numbers in the dust this year.

Returns to practice

Danna (calf) is practicing Thursday, Pete Sweeney of reports.

Danna suffered the injury in late July and has seemingly been absent from practice since. This Michigan product has been a key reserve on the Chiefs' defensive line since coming into the league in 2020, so his return is good news for Kansas City's defense.

Not at practice

He was also absent during Friday's practice along with tight end Jody Fortson and linebacker Drue Tranquill. Danna registered 27 tackles, five sacks and two forced fumbles in 13 games last season and is a key depth piece for a Chiefs' defensive front led by Chris Jones, Derrick Nnadi and George Karlaftis.
