The Chiefs saw a series of players exit their 45-44 loss to the Colts with injuries last Saturday and coach Andy Reid offered updates on their conditions on Tuesday.
Running back Knile Davis appears to be the cause for the most concern as Kansas City’s offseason gets underway. Davis fractured his left fibula when he was injured in the second half while also spraining his knee, an injury that Reid said on 810 Sports, via the Kansas City Star, “scared the heck” out of the running back.
Reid also said that Davis will be fine, but it’s unclear whether he’ll be able to take part in the team’s offseason program. If he isn’t, that might help another back make a bid to make the team if the Chiefs decide to move on from third-stringer Cyrus Gray.
The Chiefs also confirmed that linebacker Justin Houston has a knee sprain and bone bruise and announced that wide receiver Dwayne Bowe had a minor foot sprain. Running back Jamaal Charles, cornerback Brandon Flowers and wide receiver Donnie Avery all suffered concussions and, per Reid, are all improving while going through concussion testing.
