Tight end Jody Fortson carted off due to Achilles injury

The Chiefs quickly announced he was out for the game.

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Washington Football Team Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Jody Fortson appeared to suffer a non-contact injury during the third quarter of the team’s game against the Washington Football Team. He was carted off the field and into the locker room.

The team quickly announced that he was ruled out of the game due to an Achilles injury.

The Chiefs identifying “Achilles” and ruling him out so soon after the play likely means the injury will end Fortson’s season.
