The Kansas City Chiefs lost safety Bryan Cook to what looked like a gruesome ankle injury during the third quarter of their “Sunday Night Football” loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Kansas City’s athletic trainers called for a cart to take Cook off his feet as they removed him from the playing field, which is typically a sign that the injury could cost the player an extended period of time. NBC’s broadcast showed Cook in tears as he exited the playing area.

During his post-game media session, head coach Andy Reid noted that the team was “looking” at Cooks’ ankle. KSHB41 (and Arrowhead Pride) reporter Aaron Ladd noted Cook had no boot, which was both surprising and good news.

On Monday morning, even better news emerged. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported that Cook did not suffer a fracture — which is remarkable, considering the circumstances.

We’ll see if Reid has any updates during his usual Monday morning Zoom press conference. The Chiefs’ initial Week 13 injury report will be out on Wednesday afternoon, when we will also be monitoring the status of left tackle Donovan Smith (neck) and linebacker Drue Tranquill (concussion).
