Kansas City Chiefs offensive lineman Dillon Gordon is out for the season, as first reported by Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.

Gordon, 24, originally entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2016 with the Philadelphia Eagles, where he switched from his college (LSU) position, tight end, to offensive lineman.

The Eagles released Gordon in early December and the Chiefs signed him to their practice squad four days later. The Chiefs signed Gordon to a reserve/futures contract in early January.

Listed as the third left tackle on the Chiefs’ first unofficial depth chart, Gordon would have been a reach to make the 53-man roster, but he will now likely land on the team’s injured reserve. Gordon played in one regular-season game back in 2016 with Philadelphia.
