We are still awaiting official word from the Kansas City Chiefs who for some reason that I can't understand decided not to say anything about Travis Kelce's injury until today. The word is from one national reporter and from Kelce himself that this injury does not appear to be serious.
First, there's this tweet from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport who says he just rolled his ankle.
Sounds like he rolled his ankle. Should be OK. #Chiefs RT @barretta816: @RapSheet how is @tkelce ?!?!?!— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 31, 2015
Second, there is this now deleted tweet from Kelce who looks to be in a good mood.
@ArrowheadPride how about this tweet that Kelce sent but later deleted to make all us Chief fans sleep easier pic.twitter.com/0t5mpOcrxo— Drew Davis (@Phatstackdaddy) September 1, 2015
(I have a feeling #mood is going to be a thing in Kansas City today. Feel free to send me a picture of your #mood in the comments or @ArrowheadPride)
So this is looking much better. I am feeling a lot better about this whole deal. Losing Kelce for any significant amount of time would have completely deflated me and many of you. Speaking of that, here's how some of us reacted to the news:
If Travis Kelce is injured so is my heart.— Chase Snyder (@chiefssnyder19) August 31, 2015
If Travis Kelce is seriously injured in any way, I need Tony Gonzalez to parachute into Arrowhead for the first home game to feel good again— Matt Conner (@MattConnerAP) August 31, 2015
I wish everyone on my fantasy team would just stop practicing and wait until week 1. Lol but seriously I hope Travis Kelce is ok— Maurice Jones-Drew (@Jones_Drew32) August 31, 2015
All that said, I'm not going to feel completely OK until I see Andy Reid or Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder come out and say he's fine. Be on the lookout for that today.
