Sorensen suffered a tibial plateau fracture during Chiefs training camp and was placed on injured reserve after the injury was repaired in mid-August.

Sorensen was eligible to return to practice last week but the Chiefs training staff held him back. Sorensen can’t play in a game until after Week 8.
Chiefs head coach Andy Reid was asked about Sorensen’s role when he gets back given the fact the safety picture is a bit different now than when he left. The Chiefs’ primary starters have been Ron Parker and Eric Murray, and Jordan Lucas has been making his own case for playing time recently.
“We’ll just see when he gets back,” Reid said. “We’ll see where he’s at and how he’s moving and we know he can play, and he was wearing a lot of different hats there when he was playing—he covered a lot of different areas for us and at that time, and at that time, was an important ingredient to that defense. Let’s just see when he gets back and how that rolls.
“A good problem to have though, right? I’m not sure exactly the answer for you. I want to see how he is when he gets back in there.”
Reid said there’s “a chance” Sorensen could return to practice this week.
