Thomas agreed to a deal with the Chiefs on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas spent his first five years with the Chiefs. He only played five games in 2018 before a knee injury sent him to injured reserve. He was then arrested on suspicion of marijuana possession in January ahead of restricted free agency and has been looking for a landing spot since. Kansas City made the most sense for a second chance, but should he ultimately make the 53-man roster a suspension could certainly follow.

Thomas (lower leg) was arrested in Missouri on suspicion of marijuana possession, Pete Sweeney of 610 Sports Kansas City reports.

EDGE Analysis

This isn't a good look for a player who spent most of the season on injured reserve and will now become an unrestricted free agent in March.

The Chiefs placed Thomas (lower leg) on injured reserve Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas suffered a leg fracture at Thursday's practice, so this move is not surprising. It was considered a "freak accident," and will now spend the remainder of the season on the sidelines. His absence will mainly be felt in special teams, as he was serving as the primary kick returner. Tremon Smith is the most likely candidate to replace him there.

Thomas suffered a leg fracture after getting stepped on during Thursday's practice, but he will not need surgery, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

There was no malicious intent involved with Thomas' injury, as it is being described as a "freak accident." Nevertheless, it looks like Thomas will be sidelined indefinitely after fracturing his leg for a second time. Thomas' absence will mainly be felt on special teams, where he was serving as the primary kick returner.

Thomas was a limited participant in Thursday's practice due to a lower leg injury, BJ Kissel of Chiefs.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas may have picked up the lower leg ailment during Wednesday's practice, as he was a new addition to the injury report Thursday. Limited participation indicates the issue isn't too severe, so he could be fine for Sunday's matchup against the Patriots in what is expected to be a high-scoring affair.

Thomas didn't receive a tote or catch a pass in Week 2 against the Steelers, recording just six offensive snaps.

EDGE Analysis

While Thomas scored a touchdown in Week 1, it came on one of only seven offensive snaps on the day. He could see some more playing time down the road if injuries pile up, but there's nothing right now pointing to him seeing significant action on a weekly basis.

Thomas caught one pass on two targets Sunday against the Chargers, a shovel pass that resulted in a touchdown from one yard out.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas only played seven snaps total on offense in the opener and doesn't figure to play a ton this season overall, but he remains a valuable depth option and special teams player for the Chiefs.

Thomas (lower leg) caught one pass for five yards and returned one kick 36 yards in Saturday's 27-20 preseason loss to the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas had limited action in his preseason debut after missing the first two with a lower leg injury, logging just four offensive snaps and eight on special teams. The fifth-year pro will be low on the Chiefs' wideout depth chart to start the season.

Thomas (lower leg) did not play in Thursday's preseason opener against the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas continues to work his way back from a lower-leg injury that dates back to last season. He was supposedly nearing contact work as training camp begin, but there's been no indication since that time that he has done so. When healthy, Thomas should be a candidate to serve as a special teams player and a reserve receiver again in 2018, though the addition of Sammy Watkins this offseason pushes him further down the depth chart.

Thomas (leg) did some drills Monday and is preparing to ramp up to contact work, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas broke his right tibia Week 17 last season and was held out of minicamp and OTAs this spring. He'll likely be absent or limited for the early portion of training camp, but he apparently has a shot to be ready for 11-on-11 work at some point in August. The speedy 25-year-old has 61 catches, 28 carries, 71 punt returns and 48 kickoff returns through four NFL seasons.
