Sanders Comings Fractures Collarbone, Out Indefinitely


Kansas City Chiefs rookie DB Sanders Comings left practice earlier today with an injury, leaving fans hoping for the best.

Unfortunately, the prognosis is not good.

According to CBS Sports, Sanders fractured his collarbone and is out indefinitely.

Commings was the Chiefs’ fifth-round draft pick out of Georgia. Most fans and experts figured Commings would compete with Kendrick Lewis for playing time at FS.

Comings could miss anywhere from two to six weeks, according to The Star. The injury is serious enough to seriously hurt the rookie’s chances of starting or even playing very much this season. If Commings misses all of camp, it is hard to see him making much of an impact this season. Making an impact is hard enough for a rookie so imagine how hard it will be for a late-round pick who missed his entire training camp.

Hopefully Commings will heal quickly and will be able to return to action sooner rather than later. If not, John Dorsey had better hope he added enough safety depth this offseason.

    Too bad. I was looking for this kid to press for field time. Wonder if this makes coach thinks Duante should rotate over there?

    • Stacy D. Smith

      That’s where he oughta be anyway.

      • stephan costa

        Agreed

  • Stacy D. Smith

    Wow. On the FIRST day of practice.

  • Altarium

    hmm… I guess I posted my comment on this on some other fansided page… but the only three injuries I’m truly concerned about would be 1) Alex Smith gets a concussion, 2) JC gets injured in any way at all, 3) Reid keels over from eating too much OK Joes.

    I guess we could look at signing Eric Wright (hope that he gets healthy) and then move Duante to safety. With medical issues you might be able to get Wright cheap as a free agent on a one year deal.

  • paul pace

    Bummer, the injury bug has already started!!!! Let’s hope this is not an indication of things to come.

  • kmon

    I really hope he can heal fast. I can’t stand lewis

  • ArrowFan

    IR so we can keep another player that would have been cut or sign another player we wouldn’t of had a spot for. Any interesting UDFA still out there?
