Chiefs tight end Tony Moeaki’s stint with Kansas City appears to be coming to an end.

Moeaki, via his verified Twitter account Saturday, indicated that the club is parting ways with him. Moeaki also retweeted notes of support from Chiefs players wishing him well.

“Well chiefs kingdom, it’s been a pleasure. Best fans. Was starting to feel back to form. Bad timing for an inj. However…Challenge accepted,” Moeaki wrote.

Moeaki suffered a broken shoulder in the club’s Aug. 24 preseason game at Pittsburgh. It’s possible the Chiefs could be letting him go with an injury settlement.

Moeaki, 26, played 30 games for Kansas City, which drafted him in the third round in 2010. He missed the 2011 regular season with a knee injury. Overall, Moeaki has caught 80 passes for 1,009 yards and four touchdowns in regular-season play.

“(I’ll) miss my teammates especially,” Moeaki tweeted.

    Talented guy. He’d be a good player if he says healthy.

    He`s a fragile as a China doll …

    I thought he was going to be a very good player and was looking like a strong leader his rookie year. I hope he can get healthy and stay healthy.

    I feel like the turning point was having his season ended in the final preseason game a couple years back.

    Just felt like he never got a fair shake.

    NEVER GOT A FAIR SHAKE? What did the Chiefs do to make you make a idiotic statement like that?

    And nothing of value was lost

    That was pretty much the word on him out of college too – Talented player with high character but a long and troubling history of injuries.

    You can’t make an impact if you can’t stay on the field. Moeaki made some great plays, but he kept landing on the IR. Too bad for him and the Chiefs.
