Mauga (shoulder) will be sidelined for the remainder of the season, BJ Kissel of chiefs.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mauga will miss the entire 2016 season due to a labral tear. The Chiefs' veteran linebacker was expected to be a catalyst of this year's defense. Ramik Wilson will have a chance to earn a starting spot during his absence.

Mauga (groin) sat out of Tuesday's practice, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mauga was able to participate in a light workout session Monday after straining his groin last Friday, but when the team returned to full pads Tuesday, the veteran linebacker was seen working individually on the side. The minor injury isn't expected to plague Mauga for an extended period of time, as he could return to practice later this week.

Mauga (groin) was spotted wearing shorts, but was out with the team at practice Monday, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mauga required an MRI after suffering a groin strain but appears nearly ready to rejoin practice on a full basis. Barring a major setback of some kind, he should be good to go for the start of the regular season and possible some of the preseason. However, groin strains can linger, so it's something to monitor.

Mauga suffered a strained groin and will undergo an MRI, Chiefs' reporter BJ Kissel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Look for updates to come next week on the severity of the groin injury. If he misses extended time, look for Ramik Wilson to take the first-team reps.

Mauga finished the 2015 regular season with 58 tackles (46 solo), one sack and two interceptions.

EDGE Analysis

Playing alongside Derrick Johnson, Mauga made a slight impact of his own on the inside, thous he was no where near his counterpart's 116 tackles. It's possible the Chiefs will look to add some depth on the inside prior to the 2016 campaign, but Mauga is currently in line to retain the starting role.

Mauga notched nine solo tackles in Sunday's win over the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Mauga was all over the field on Sunday in a sloppy high-scoring affair with the Bills. The sixth-year linebacker tallied his season high in tackles with nine, on a day where the majority of the Chiefs' defenders struggled. Don't expect numbers like this on a regular basis, however, as Mauga only has 36 tackles on the season and holds minimal IDP value compared to others at the position.

The Chiefs have re-signed Mauga to a three-year contract worth approximately $8 million, per ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

The contract indicates that Mauga will start at inside linebacker next to Derrick Johnson, who missed nearly the entire 2014 season after suffering a torn Achilles in Week 1. While Johnson is the player for IDP owners to target, Mauga did manage 103 tackles (82 solo) over 16 games in 2014, albeit with minimal secondary statistics.

Mauga recorded eight tackles (four solo), a half-sack, and a tackle for loss in the regular season finale against the Chargers.

Mauga entered 2014 as a backup to Derrick Johnson and Joe Mays at inside linebacker, but injuries to both handed the starting job to he and James-Michael Johnson. Mauga took advantage of his opportunity to the tune of 103 tackles (82 solo) and a half-sack, which came in Week 17. He enters the offseason as a free agent, and while it seems unlikely he will return to the Chiefs as a starter with both Derrick Johnson and Joe Mays set to return, he may have set himself up for a multi-year deal with his performance.
