Chiefs CB Breeland activated after 4-game suspension

The Kansas City Chiefs activated cornerback Bashaud Breeland on Saturday following his four-game suspension.

He will be available for Sunday’s game against the visiting Las Vegas Raiders.

The NFL suspended Breeland in August for violating the league’s policy on substance abuse. He was arrested in April in South Carolina on five charges, including three related to alcohol or marijuana.

The York County Sheriff’s Office charged Breeland with resisting arrest, alcohol in a motor vehicle with the seal broken, an open container of beer or wine in a motor vehicle, possession of 28 grams or less of marijuana or 10 grams or less of hash, and driving without a license.

Breeland, 28, is a native of Allendale, S.C., and played in college at Clemson.

The six-year veteran joined the Chiefs in 2019, picking off two passes in 16 games and adding another interception in the victory in Super Bowl LIV. He re-signed with Kansas City on a one-year deal worth a reported $3 million ($2.5 million guaranteed) — or up to $4.5 million with incentives — in March.

Breeland also played for Washington (2014-17) and the Green Bay Packers (2018), posting 12 interceptions in 83 career games (77 starts).

In a corresponding transaction, the Chiefs placed rookie defensive end Mike Danna (hamstring) on injured reserve. The fifth-round pick from Michigan has seven tackles and one sack in four games.
