Chiefs WR Jerheme Urban's Season-Ending Injury Came Against The Packers

Kansas City Chiefs WR Jerheme Urban was surprisingly placed on injured reserve last Saturday evening when the Chiefs cut their roster down to 53 players. Much like Colin Brown last year, no one had any idea he was injured when the team announced his season was over.

As it turns out, Urban's injury came in the final preseason game against the Green Bay Packers, according to Mike Forman of the Victoria Advocate.

"It's a bummer," said Urban by phone from his Kansas City residence. "But it happened and I can't do anything about it."

The report says Urban "tore the flexor tender in his ring finger on his right hand" while blocking last Thursday against the Packers. He was scheduled for surgery today and it would take 10-12 weeks recovery team.

A finger injury sounds minor but as a receiver it's a pretty big deal. 10-12 months weeks would have put his return sometime in late November to early December so IR was the right move for the Chiefs.

Urban's injury is a reason many coaches prefer to let their starters see very limited action in the final preseason game.

Urban hopes to be training by December.
