In his press conference on Tuesday, Kansas City Chiefs Head Coach, Andy Reid delivered the news that All-Pro Tight End, Travis Kelce hyper-extended his knee at the end of practice. In delivering the news to reporters, Reid, looked as if he saw a ghost in describing the unknown about Kelce. However, Wednesday morning brother Jason Kelce provided a more positive update.
News spread quickly regarding the knee injury sustained by Kansas City Chiefs Tight End, Travis Kelce on Tuesday. The reports indicated that he suffered the injury late in practice but managed to walk off the field on his own power.
He was officially diagnosed with a Hyper hyperextended knee, which could mean a variety of things both good and bad. As the Chiefs waited for his MRI results, many speculated that Kelce could miss some serious game time.
However, those fears were neutralized when the MRIU results revealed no ACL tear or any other damage to the knee. Though the knee was swollen Tuesday, the injury boils down to a bone bruise. Depending on the location of the bruise, it’s possible Kelce plays Thursday night against the Detroit Lions.
Wednesday morning on an interview with the WIP Morning Show in Philadelphia, he indicated that Travis should be good to go against the Lions. Now if that’s the case, Head Coach, Andy Reid will have the final say.
For the Chiefs, if Kelce is removed from this game, Reid and Offensive Coordinator Matt Nagy will be forced to alter a chunk of their game plan. Remember as the season opener, both Reid and Nagy have been scripting this game for weeks getting ready for the Lions
We will probably learn more later today once the Chiefs release the latest injury update.
