Tony Moeaki's injury will keep him out until KC Chiefs training camp

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

The Kansas City Chiefs have yet to face any injury problems in the 2013 offseason ... with the exception of Tony Moeaki. The KC Chiefs fourth-year tight end hasn't participated this offseason due to a knee injury and likely won't be ready until training camp, according to Andy Reid.

So there's this:

The Chiefs offseason program ends on June 6 so it's also accurate to say that Moeaki is out for at least another two weeks. The injury to Moeaki is reportedly a knee scope over the offseason. It's not clear when, exactly, that happened. It was first reported in mid-March though it happened sometime after the season.

There are a lot of "likely" and "hopes" used here, which is concerning because of Moeaki's injury history. That he hasn't participated in any of the Chiefs offseason activities, with a new head coach and a new offense coming in, is also concerning. Moeaki is entering the final year of his contract -- due over $1.3 million -- so there's not a huge incentive to cut him before the season. The Chiefs also signed Anthony Fasano to a four-year deal and drafted Travis Kelce in the third round.

Given all that, it's hard to see Moeaki have a sizable impact on the Chiefs 2013 season, at least early on. I'd love to be wrong but the moves the Chiefs have made this offseason indicate otherwise.
