The Chiefs will likely be placing Osemele on injured reserve in the coming days, even if they do get good news regarding his knee injuries. 

Osemele, 31, is a former second-round pick of the Ravens back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract with the team before signing a five year, $58.5 million contract with the Raiders back in 2016.

The Raiders traded Osemele to the Jets for a fifth-round pick, but he was later released and sat out the remainder of the season. He signed a one-year deal with the Chiefs that was worth up to $2 million prior to the start of the 2020 season.

In 2020, Osemele appeared in and started in five games for the Chiefs.
