The Kansas City Chiefs announced to the media today that rookie TE Travis Kelce has undergone a knee surgery that could end his season.
Not that his season ever started.
From Randy Covitz, of the Kansas City Star:

The Chiefs should really be thanking their lucky stars about the emergence of TE Sean McGrath because otherwise their TE situation this season has been a complete disaster. Anthony Fasano still is not practicing and though the team has been getting by without him, should something happen to McGrath the KC offense could be in serious trouble.
The loss of Kelce is a big blow to the team’s depth at the TE position. This news isn’t likely to quiet the “bring Tony Gonzalez back to Kansas City” campaign that has a few vocal supporters, including this guy.
Though bringing Gonzalez back to the Chiefs may not be the most likely course of action, Chiefs GM John Dorsey may need to seriously examine his depth chart and decide whether or not he feels comfortable proceeding with Fasano, McGrath and Kevin Brock.
What do you think, Addicts? Do the Chiefs need to bring in another TE now that Kelce is likely finished?
