In the fourth quarter, Kansas City Chiefs Guard Joe Thuney left the game with an injury. An MRI today revealed the best possible news that he could play again this season.
The Kansas City Chiefs had three critical injuries from Sunday’s 27-24 Divisional game against the Buffalo Bills. Safety Mike Edwards left early in the first quarter with a concussion, linebacker Willie Gay didn’t play in the second half with a neck strain, and Guard Joe Thuney suffered a pectoral injury.
On Monday, an MRI revealed that Thuney had a strain, not a pectoral muscle tear. After the game on Sunday, Head Coach Andy Reid gave few details as to the extent of the injury.
On Monday’s zoom call with local reporters, he said he would not have injury updates until Wednesday.
The three-year starter in Kansas City has played his best football in a Chiefs uniform this season. His absence Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens would challenge the Chiefs offensive line. Nick Allegretti filled in Thuney and played solid in the fourth quarter. His kick-out block opened up the hole on Isiah Pacheco’s final carry, sealing the win for Kansas City.
