Folks, Nick Bolton is back!

Given the implications of this Week 14 matchup with the Bills, this is a huge boost to the defense. Get the latest information below.

Chiefs Injury News: LB Nick Bolton Activated from IR

The Chiefs haven't officially announced yet that Bolton will play, though it seems likely given the timing of the transaction.

We know Bolton returned to practice last week and now he'll likely play for the first time since October 22nd. It was obvious how much Kansas City missed Bolton on defense last week. With Drue Tranquill already ruled out, the linebacking room was looking thin prior to this news.

Bolton has 28 tackles on the season in just four games but ranked second in the NFL last year. He made two massive plays in the Super Bowl and has consistently been the Chiefs' best linebacker for a few years.

Now that he's back, I'm extremely confident in the Chiefs' chances. It's a great day in Chiefs Kingdom.
