WR Eddie Kennison - Los Angeles Rams
|6-0, 195||Born: 1-20-1973||College: LSU||Drafted: Round 1, pick 18|
2008 Week 3 vs SEA (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Kennison saw limited action late in the game.
2008 Week 4 vs BUF (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
With the game out of reach in the fourth quarter Kennison was targeted once in the end zone.
2007 Week 1 vs HOU (0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)
The Chiefs' top receiver, Eddie Kennison was handed the ball on an end around on the first offensive play of the game for the Chiefs. As he went untouched around the end for what at first appeared would be a good gain, he started limping and hobbled off of the field with an obvious problem to his right leg. After he left the game for good, it was reported to be a right hamstring injury. It was not yet known how serious the injury is. Dwayne Bowe took his place. If he is out for an extended period, he will be missed.
2007 Week 5 vs JAX (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Kennison returned to the lineup but was not much of a factor. He only had one target, which was in the first half. It was a deep pass in the end zone that was not catchable.
2007 Week 10 vs DEN (8 / 3 / 34 / 0 rec)
Kennison is back and nicely compliments Dwayne Bowe. He caught three of the passes sent his way for 34 yards. Even more significant was his willingness to keep active even when the ball was not meant for him as witnessed by his fumble recovery.
2007 Week 11 vs IND (1 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Kennison saw most of his action as the team's punt returner. He fumbled his first return, but the Colts were unable to convert the turnover into any points.
2007 Week 12 vs OAK (2 / 2 / 22 / 0 rec)
Kennison caught both passes thrown to him. He is still a dependable receiving option but has definitely moved to a new role as the second wide receiver for Kansas City.
2007 Week 13 vs SD (5 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)
Kennison's day began inauspiciously and only got worse from there. He dropped a touchdown in the end zone from 20 yards out on Kansas City's opening possession, and the team settled for a field goal. He was also the targeted receiver on both of Damon Huard's interceptions. And to top it all off, he was the target of a key fourth down pass that fell incomplete and really put the Chargers in the driver's seat. On the play, Kennison actually appeared to have caught the ball and then fumbled it away, which would've led to an easy San Diego touchdown the other way. So ironically, it was actually better for him to have not caught the ball and converted the play. Despite the five targets, Kennison didn't record a catch in the game.
2007 Week 14 vs DEN (1 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)
Kennison caught a short pass on the first offensive play of the game for the Chiefs. He was then never targeted again in the contest, leaving him with two total yards of offense.
2007 Week 15 vs TEN (8 / 6 / 39 / 0 rec)
Kennison was a bit of a surprise. The veteran looked like he had turned back the clock to the days before his season opening injury. He was Croyle's number one target, grabbing six of the ten passes intended for him. He picked up 39 yards, but one of the targets for him was actually an uncounted catch that would have been for 45 yards. It was called back due to a holding call on the Chiefs.
2006 Week 1 vs CIN (4 / 1 / 14 / 0 rec, 1 / 9 / 0 rush)
Kennison was almost invisible for the Chiefs, especially once Trent Green left the game. The vast majority of Damon Huard's pass attempts were short, safe passes; not exactly the type of completions Kennison, a deep threat, is known for. He was so inactive in the passing game that his best play of the day was clearly one on which he stopped a potential interception by swatting the ball away from Cincinnati CB Deltha O'Neal. Kennison lost nine yards receiving on a play that was called back due to offensive pass interference on WR Samie Parker.
2006 Week 2 vs DEN (3 / 2 / 39 / 0 rec)
Kennison was more open than his stat line would show. He does not appear to have the connection down yet with Huard. He caught two of the three passes that were thrown to him. He had good yardage, a 19.5 yard average, for the passes he caught. In particular, he showed skill gaining yardage after the catch.
2006 Week 4 vs SF (8 / 6 / 86 / 1 rec)
Kennison had let the Chiefs know during the break that he would like to see more action during the games and to the benefit of the entire team he was utilized more. He was a favorite for Huard during the contest catching six passes from the eight times he was targeted. He was the recipient of a nice long pass for a touchdown in the second quarter.
2006 Week 5 vs ARI (9 / 4 / 48 / 0 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)
Kennison was often targeted by Huard during this contest. He was able to bring in only four of the nine balls targeted to him but he was still depended on strongly in the Chiefs' attack. He can still justifiably be considered the number one receiver in Kansas City.
2006 Week 6 vs PIT (7 / 3 / 57 / 0 rec)
Kennison maintained his image by catching few passes, but for good chunks of yards. He averaged 19 yards per catch in gaining 57 yards. While not very impressive, Kennison was the target of a few other downfield passes, including two in the end zone, but the passes were broken up or off target. He also drew a fourth quarter pass interference on a third pass to the goal line, but the Chiefs came up empty. Kennison's long gains were for 25 and 24 yards. He also drew punt return duties while injured WR Dante Hall recovers from a hip injury he sustained last week. Kennison had 12 return yards on two punts.
2006 Week 7 vs SD (3 / 2 / 30 / 1 rec, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)
Kennison had two catches for 30 yards. The first was a 21 yard touchdown catch on a post pattern. Kennison's was stopped for a nine yard gain at the Charger one yard line on his other reception. Larry Johnson scored on the Chiefs' next play. Kennison had one rushing attempt on an end around for no gain.
2006 Week 8 vs SEA (7 / 6 / 132 / 0 rec)
Kennison was targeted early and often and responded with sure hands plus the ability to gain the extra yards after the catch. He collected six of the seven passes thrown his way for an incredible 132 yards.
2006 Week 9 vs STL (4 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)
Kennison was the most targeted wide receiver for the Chiefs, but that really doesn't say too much. Kennison had only 4 targets, all coming in the second and third quarters. He caught the middle of 3 chances in the second quarter for 14 yards and a first down, but the other two were deeper throws towards the end zone that just sailed too deep for Kennison to make a play. His final target was a five yard catch on third down in the third period, but the yardage was not enough for a first down.
2006 Week 10 vs MIA (8 / 3 / 58 / 0 rec)
Kennison had a few good catches for decent yardage but needs the ball coming his way more often to help open up the field for the Chiefs' offense to score. He captured three of the eight passes thrown his way.
2006 Week 11 vs OAK (6 / 2 / 38 / 0 rec)
Kennison and Green did not seem to be clicking as well together for this game. Undoubtedly they will be after Green gets in some more first team practice. Kennison caught two of the six passes thrown to him and remains a top downfield threat for Green.
2006 Week 12 vs DEN (4 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)
Kennison had an off day as he only caught one of the five passes that were targeted to him. His statistics should go up if and when Green begins to open up the passing attack.
2006 Week 13 vs CLE (9 / 7 / 117 / 1 rec)
Kennison was a favorite target for Green from the outset. He quietly caught seven of the ten balls thrown his way for 117 yards and a touchdown. Kennison should be a strong performer the rest of the way with Green at the controls.
2006 Week 14 vs BAL (3 / 1 / 13 / 0 rec)
Kennison had a sub par game for him. He only had one catch out of three times he was targeted. He is usually a favorite of Green and he should produce better totals in the upcoming weeks.
2006 Week 15 vs SD (10 / 6 / 43 / 0 rec)
Kennison had the second most looks of any Chiefs' receivers. He was second on the team in yardage, and tied with Tony Gonzalez for the team lead with six receptions. Kennison dropped the last pass of the game that would've earned a first down and kept the Chiefs' slim hopes alive.
2006 Week 16 vs OAK (7 / 1 / 6 / 1 rec, 1 / 5 / 0 rush)
Kennison caught a six yard touchdown reception on the Chiefs first possession of the game. It would turn out to be Kennison's only catch of the game as he was a non-factor after the touchdown. The Oakland cornerbacks did a good job of shutting Kennison down and keeping him well covered throughout the game.
2006 Week 17 vs JAX (9 / 6 / 144 / 1 rec)
Kennison was decidedly the hottest Chiefs' receiver. He tore apart the Jaguars' defense for 144 yards on six receptions. His touchdown reception was on a 35 yard deep route into the end zone set up by a flea flicker.
2006 Week 18 vs IND (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Kennison was targeted deep on the Chiefs' opening drive, but the pass fell incomplete. He then dropped the ball on third down on the following drive. Kennison was targeted just once in the second half after gaining a step on the defender, but the pass was too short and Bob Sanders jumped in to make the interception.
2005 Week 1 vs NYJ (5 / 4 / 76 / 0 rec)
Kennison wasn't looked to often, but when he was good things usually happened. On a day when the Chiefs didn't really need to put the ball in the air much, Kennison snagged a team high four passes for 76 yards. All in all, it was a typical day at the office for Kennison.
2005 Week 2 vs OAK (8 / 4 / 52 / 0 rec, 1 / 8 / 0 rush)
Kennison has developed an excellent rapport with Trent Green. He was the favorite target for Green while hauling in 4 passes for 52 yards. He also contributed to one special end around play rushing for eight yards.
2005 Week 3 vs DEN (11 / 8 / 112 / 0 rec)
Kennison came on strong in the second half. He was easily the bright spot for the offense. He was able to get open and hold onto the ball better than any other Kansas City receiver. He barely missed a touchdown near the end of the game. He dove for a pass and the referee signaled a touchdown, but after a challenge by Denver Coach Shanahan, the officials overruled the call and ruled that the ball had touched the ground while Kennison was trying to catch it.
2005 Week 4 vs PHI (8 / 7 / 109 / 1 rec, 1 / 23 / 0 rush)
Kennison was Trent Green's favorite wide receiver target. He had several nice catches on the day, including a 49 yard catch on a sideline route. Kennison's touchdown, his first of the year, came on a quick slant on a perfect eight yard pass from Green. Kennison also had a 23 yard gain on a reverse. He did have a costly drop, which resulted in a Philadelphia interception.
2005 Week 6 vs WAS (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Kennison did not catch a pass despite starting the game and playing its entirety. It was his first game played without a reception since 2001 when he was a member of the Denver Broncos. Coverage on him was mixed as he faced Walt Harris, Carlos Rogers, and Ade Jimoh at one point or another. The aggressive zone scheme employed by the redskins seemed to stymie Kennison in particular, as Trent Green looked for his tallest receivers first.
2005 Week 7 vs MIA (4 / 2 / 24 / 0 rec, 2 / 4 / 0 rush)
Kennison did not have a great statistical day, but he was effectively utilized by the Chiefs in various ways. He had an important role in the game plan. He rushed two times on end around plays. He caught two of the passes thrown to him. He also was very effective on downfield blocks as he helped his teammates gain extra yardage.
2005 Week 8 vs SD (9 / 7 / 115 / 1 rec)
Kennison, like most other Kansas City receivers, began quietly with just one catch in the first half. He exploded in the second half, however, with six receptions and a touchdown. Kennison made several terrific grabs and displayed excellent hands (seriously) and was option 1A to Tony Gonzalez for K.C. Kennison lost yards on a reception that was ruled an incompletion after a San Diego challenge.
2005 Week 9 vs OAK (8 / 5 / 60 / 0 rec)
Kennison bobbled and dropped his first target along the sidelines. He was targeted in the end zone, but fell down trying to come back to the ball which was poorly thrown by Green. He made his first receptions near the end of the first half, a sixteen yard grab followed by a four yard gain on a catch. Kennison made a catch near the sidelines, he fell down, he got up to gain some additional yards but was ruled down by contact and was two yards short of gaining a first down. Kennison made a 13 yard reception during the Chiefs' game winning drive.
2005 Week 10 vs BUF (9 / 4 / 41 / 0 rec)
Kennison had a 20 yard gain on the Chiefs' third drive but ended the day with just four catches for 41 yards from his ten targets. Kennison was the intended target on two of Green's interceptions.
2005 Week 11 vs HOU (9 / 4 / 57 / 2 rec, 1 / -2 / 0 rush)
Kennison enjoyed a productive game accumulating 57 receiving yards and gathering in two touchdowns. He was able to get open often and gained good yardage after his catches. Kennison is obviously the number one wide receiver on this team and picks up the opponent's top coverage always after Tony Gonzalez.
2005 Week 12 vs NE (4 / 3 / 65 / 0 rec, 1 / -5 / 0 rush)
Kennison was a solid contributor, able to get open for Green and producing good yardage after his receptions. He did not stand out from the other wide receivers during this contest as he has through most of this year.
2005 Week 13 vs DEN (5 / 4 / 108 / 0 rec)
Kennison was involved in several huge plays throughout the contest. His 54 yard reception in the second quarter helped set up the first Larry Johnson touchdown run. He was targeted in the end zone on a Trent Green second quarter pass, and even though he was open, Green overshot him. He later caught what appeared to be a seven yard touchdown, but the play was negated due to a holding penalty. If not for the hold, the touchdown would have never happened. Kennison was also the target of an errant Trent Green end zone pass that was picked off by Champ Bailey. Kennison went over 100 yards early in the fourth quarter, and even though he didn't have an extremely very busy afternoon, he certainly had an eventful one.
2005 Week 14 vs DAL (8 / 4 / 92 / 1 rec, 1 / 15 / 0 rush)
Kennison again made a strong statement as the team's number one wide receiver. He is an excellent number two fantasy receiver. He excels at separation from the opposing team's defensive backs, which he particularly proved on the Chiefs' final touchdown drive, when he broke free and raced 47 yards down the right sideline for a score. He was also utilized as a change of pace on an end around rush.
2005 Week 15 vs NYG (5 / 3 / 21 / 0 rec)
Kennison was targeted just once before halftime as most of the chances were going towards WR Samie Parker. Kennison had just one catch for 12 yards after 30 minutes of play. He had two more targets in the third, catching the first for six yards. The second target was a 25 yard down and in route that Kennison short armed and got clobbered as he crossed through the New York secondary. He was shaken up a bit on that play but returned to the game shortly thereafter. Kennison added one final catch on the last play of the game for Kansas City, as he caught a ball near the sidelines and struggled to try and get out of bounds. As a result of that struggle he fumbled the ball away to the Giants and also seemed to favor his knee. Late word from the game had Kennison leaving the locker room on crutches and with a brace on his left knee.
2005 Week 16 vs SD (4 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)
Kennison had a bit of an off week for the Chiefs. He only recorded two receptions during the contest. He should be back on top of his game next week.
2005 Week 17 vs CIN (9 / 7 / 151 / 0 rec)
Kennison had an excellent game. He compiled 151 yards giving him his best total yardage season in Kansas City, with over 1100 yards receiving. Kennison caught almost everything thrown his way. He is a favorite receiver in Kansas City and after a long career; he is established as a strong number one receiver. Kennison even had one excellent punt return after Dante Hall had left the field with an apparent injury to his right arm or shoulder.
