Injured Kansas City Chiefs Should Be Ready For 2012

The one good part of the Kansas City Chiefs losing several key players to season-ending injuries is that it happened early in the season. LB Brandon Siler tore his Achilles' in training camp, Tony Moeaki tore his ACL in the final preseason game, Eric Berry tore his ACL in the first game and Jamaal Charles tore his ACL in the second game.

Because those injuries happened early, all those players are expected to be ready for the 2012 season. In fact, they should be ready by this summer.

610 Sports' Danny Parkins spoke with Moeaki on Monday and he said that he, Berry and Charles are all on the same recovery timetable and should be ready for OTAs this summer. Charles previously indicated he should be ready to roll for OTAs so this isn't a surprise but still good to hear.

The Chiefs could be in a position like the one Adrian Peterson finds himself where he may miss the start of 2012 because his injury came in Week 16 and not Week 1 or 2.

So if there's one good thing to take away from the Chiefs 2011 season it's that they'll be significantly better next year when the injured players return.
