Chiefs DB Sanders Commings, placed on IR-designated to return, is practicing

New, comments

KC Chiefs rookie defensive back Sanders Commings has returned to practice after sitting out the first six weeks of the season due to his placement on IR-designated to return.

On the day that we get news that Anthony Fasano could possibly, maybe be returning this weekend, there's also news on another injured player, Sanders Commings.

To catch you back up on Commings, he was a fifth round pick last April out of Georgia. He participated in offseason OTAs but then broke his collarbone in the first couple days of training camp, which is roughly a 6-8 week injury.

The Chiefs chose to use the new(-ish) injured reserve where he is "designated for return". With that designation, Commings was not allowed to practice for the first six weeks of the season and can't play in a game for eight weeks. So there's still two more weeks of waiting here to see him get in a game but the fact he is practicing is good to hear.

The IR-designated for return rule can only be used once during the season so the fact the Chiefs used it on Commings suggests to me that they expect him to have a role this season. How big or small? That all depends on plenty of factors but it's something we should find out after sometime Week 8.
