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.
