Chiefs CB Kendall Fuller will be game-time decision to play vs. Seahawks

Kendall Fuller, Chiefs

Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Kendall Fuller is listed as a game-time decision for his team’s game against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday afternoon due to a thumb injury, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Fuller underwent surgery on his thumb a week ago, but the Chiefs are hopeful that he will play.

Through 14 games this season, Fuller has registered 70 tackles, two interceptions, a forced fumble and 12 passes defended.

The 23-year-old, who played his collegiate football at Virginia Tech, was originally selected by the Washington Redskins in the third round (84th pick overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft. He played in 13 games during his rookie campaign, finishing with 40 stops and a couple of passes defended.

The following year, Fuller played in all 16 games for the Redskins, tallying 54 tackles, four picks, a forced fumble and 10 passes defended. The Chiefs acquired Fuller this past March in a deal that sent quarterback Alex Smith to Washington.

There is a lot at stake for Kansas City on Sunday. If the Chiefs defeat the Seahawks, they will clinch the AFC West division title as well as wrap up a first-round bye.

The Baltimore Ravens did Kansas City a huge favor on Saturday evening, dropping the Los Angeles Chargers to 11-4. The Chargers beat the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium last week.

Now, all Kansas City needs to do is win, and it will be able to watch the Wild Card Round of the playoffs from its couch.

Of course, that won’t be an easy task, as the Chiefs will be on the road playing a Seahawks team that is also fighting for a playoff berth.
