Chris Jones tore his MCL in Chiefs playoff loss

The Kansas City Chiefs weren’t just missing Travis Kelce in Saturday’s playoff loss to the Titans. They were also missing Chris Jones and for good reason: he tore his MCL, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Assuming surgery and rehab goes OK this should be plenty of time for him to recover as the Chiefs offseason program (usually) doesn’t begin until April.

Jones had a good, not great season this year. After his superb rookie year I think many of us were waiting for him to take a huge leap forward this year. Not that he was bad, but I thought he would make the leap from very good to dominant and he didn’t. There’s still plenty of time for that in his young career. (Update: Someone reminded me that Jones had knee surgery before last season, which is notable here as we discuss his season)
