Kansas City Chiefs outside linebacker Dee Ford has looked as good as he has in a long time this season, wreaking havoc on opposing offensive lines and registering two sacks in three games in the process.
So of course he came out of the game against the San Francisco 49ers with an injury.
“Dee Ford is really the only one,” Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said after the team’s 38-27 win. “He strained his groin, so we will just see how he does in the next day or so. He will have an MRI [Monday] and we will go from there.”
Reid is scheduled to speak at Arrowhead on Monday at Noon Arrowhead Time, but if the past is any indication, we won’t get any results or update on Ford until Wednesday.
Ford has shown flashes of talent over the years, but the injury bug hasn’t been kind to the 27-year-old linebacker, who missed most of 2017 with a back issue and eventual surgery.
Ford is due to become an unrestricted free agent after this season. He has 19.5 career sacks in 54 games with the Chiefs.
