The Kansas City Chiefs are seeing the return of left guard Parker Ehinger. After tearing his ACL early last year, Ehinger was placed on the PUP list at the start of camp and today he’s coming off.
Good news ➡️ #Chiefs' second-year OL Parker Ehinger has come off the PUP list and will practice today.— BJ Kissel (@ChiefsReporter) August 21, 2017
He made four starts at LG last year.
This means that Ehinger can practice with the team. With almost a year off it’s hard to see him playing as soon as this weekend against the Seahawks. I’m assuming once he’s back into football shape that he will figure into the left guard competition. Bryan Witzmann and Zach Fulton are competing at left guard. Ehinger won the job outright at the start of last year before tearing his ACL so I’m curious to see where the Chiefs view him.
Witzmann had gotten most of the left guard reps but he split with Fulton in last week’s preseason game against the Bengals. That position could still be open.
