The Kansas City Chiefs elected not to re-sign DT Ron Edwards in the free agency period this year and he went on to sign a three-year, $8.25 million deal with the Carolina Panthers.

In his very first practice, Edwards suffered an injury -- a serious one. Reportedly, it was a torn triceps. Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer updates us on his condition:

BREAKING: Ron Edwards will have surgery. Out indefinitely.

It'll be a long recovery process, unfortunately. Sad news for Edwards.

It goes to show you how quickly things can change in the NFL and how you need competent back-ups at every single position because serious injuries like this aren't that uncommon in the NFL.

He's not a Chief anymore but we still wish the best to Ron Edwards. We wouldn't wish this on anyone.
