Chiefs Injury Update: Sanders Commings undergoes ankle surgery

By on 8/01/2014 07:00:00 PM

Kansas City Chiefs safety Sanders Commings had ankle surgery on Thursday from an injury that took place in practice field on Wednesday, reports BJ Kissel from

The Chiefs organization updated today that the injury is labeled as a broken fibula and there is no timetable on his return.

Chiefs athletic trainer Rick Burkhaolder said "Surgery went well for Commings, and he was home recovering."  Regardless of how well the surgery went we can be expecting Commings to miss a significant part of this year as he will need to undergo some type of rehab before he can touch the field again.

There seems to be a string of bad luck for the second year player, who missed the first five practices of this year’s training camp with a foot injury. Commings sat out pretty much all season last year when he suffered a broken collarbone in the first week of practice last year.

Commings did manage to see two games in 2013 before re-injuring his shoulder, and the Chiefs place him on a season-ending injury reserve.

The most interesting part of this is not necessarily Commings ankle injury, but how it was injured. Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles put a juke on a few of his defending teammates, one of which was Commings, who went straight to the ground after trying to make the play.

Injuries such as Commings might sting a little worse for the Chiefs, as safety Eric Berry also went down with an injury this week.
The Chiefs, who are starting to look a bit thin in the safety position, went out and signed former New England Patriot Steve Gregory to the squad. Gregory is an eight year veteran who's signing might be an indication that the Chiefs could place Commings on IR. Time will tell.
