Kansas City Chiefs' Andy Reid comments on Tony Moeaki's shoulder injury

Tony Moeaki went down with a shoulder fracture in Saturday's OT victory over the Steelers. The timetable for a return is unknown but Andy Reid commented on the injury briefly.

Not a good week for the KC Chiefs tight ends. First Travis Kelce misses Saturday's game with a knee bruise. And then Tony Moeaki goes down with a shoulder injury. Chiefs head coach Andy Reid confirmed to reporters earlier on Monday that it was a shoulder fracture.

This particular injury raised some eyebrows given Moeaki's injury history.

"Well, he has had a couple of injuries," Reid said, via comments from the Chiefs, "but in a lot of cases with different players, sometimes you can change that around in your career. Hopefully this is his last one, and he'll be able to keep going."

Will he get a chance to turn it around? That's what I wonder with cut down day coming up. If the injury is severe enough the Chiefs could choose to place him on IR. Or they could "place the designate him for return" IR tag on him, allowing him to come back late in the season. We shall see.

I didn't even see when it happened. The TV broadcast didn't mention it (as far as I know). The radio broadcast apparently did, according to listeners.

"I'd have to go back and check exactly when it was," Reid said of the injury. "He got tackled and landed on it. He was actually tackled on that spot and landed on it."
