If the reports we heard yesterday are accurate, Kansas City Chiefs CB Brandon Flowers may have a high ankle sprain that could sideline him for multiple weeks but that didn’t stop him from trying to get back on the field following his injury Sunday.
While talking about Flowers’ injury at a press conference Monday, Chiefs coach Todd Haley said he was forced to drag Flowers off the field.
“But, I had to drag him off the field once,” said Haley. “Our trainer was over helping somebody else and he sneaks out on the field.”
It is good to know the Chiefs have a passionate player and leader in Flowers. As the Chiefs try to weather the storm they are facing this season, guys like Flowers can really help by setting an example of toughness and by demonstrating a desire to continue playing hard despite what the scoreboard says.
Though Haley wouldn’t let Flowers continue to play and risk further injury, the Chiefs’ CB did not check out of the game.
“And then, throughout the game, anybody that was watching, you saw this guy on the sideline, he’s the first one out there encouraging, talking, pushing those guys along, keeping their heads up,” Haley told reporters.
So when will Flowers be able to take his leadership back on to the field?
“We’ll know a little more on Wednesday and I’ll be able to give you more info,” said Haley.
Let’s hope the news is good.
