Draft Scout Dee Ford News
08/18/16 - OLB Dee Ford has been running with the No. 1 defense due to the absence of strong-side starter Justin Houston. His performance in the preseason opener was just so-so. "He's like a lot of our guys, he has to get better, improve, and the optimum word for me is you have to develop a level of consistency defensively, individually, whatever, if you want to be the team or the unit to be reckoned with," said defensive coordinator Bob Sutton.
06/16/16 - OLB Dee Ford (knee) left practice for the second consecutive day suffering from tendinitis. "He'll be fine," said head coach Andy Reid. "We told him to go do what you can do out there and he did it. Once we get back to camp, I don't think it will be a big deal."
05/31/16 - OLB Dee Ford is getting plenty of work with the No. 1 defense due to the absence of starters Justin Houston and Tamba Hali. For the Chiefs first-round selection in the 2014 draft, it is his opportunity to establish playing time, something he has seen only small slices of in his first two seasons. "I'm not Tamba and I'm not Justin, but I'm learning with them," Ford said. "What I'm incorporating is what they do that I don't do and that's consistency. The first two steps that's going to define your rush every down. That's a little thing that separates good from great is those first two steps."
01/06/16 - OLB Dee Ford (concussion) did not practice on Tuesday or Wednesday as the Chiefs began preparations for their AFC wildcard round game against Houston. Ford did not exhibit concussion symptoms during last Sunday's game against Oakland. But, a few moments before leaving the Chiefs locker room after the game, he reported to the trainers that he was having some problems.
12/13/15 - OLB Dee Ford made his second start of the season filling in for Justin Houston (knee), and he turned in the best performance of his two-season career. The Chiefs' first-round selection in the 2014 draft led the team with seven tackles in their victory over San Diego. Ford had three sacks, but his biggest play came in pass coverage when he broke up a throw in the end zone from QB Philip Rivers to RB Danny Woodhead on the final play of the game.
