“Thanks for the prayers,” Conley wrote. “Minor set back, Major comeback.”

Conley ruptured his Achilles during the final quarter of the Chiefs’ Sunday Night Football game with the Houston Texans.

Perhaps the most unfortunate part of it all is head coach Andy Reid’s words on him right after the injury:

“Chris I thought was playing as good of football that he’s ever played here,” Reid said in a conference call after the Texans game. “I just think he’s really had a nice year up to this point. It’s a shame that happened.”
