Knile Davis fractured his fibula against Colts

The Chiefs saw a series of players exit their 45-44 loss to the Colts with injuries last Saturday and coach Andy Reid offered updates on their conditions on Tuesday.

Running back Knile Davis appears to be the cause for the most concern as Kansas City’s offseason gets underway. Davis fractured his left fibula when he was injured in the second half while also spraining his knee, an injury that Reid said on 810 Sports, via the Kansas City Star, “scared the heck” out of the running back.

Reid also said that Davis will be fine, but it’s unclear whether he’ll be able to take part in the team’s offseason program. If he isn’t, that might help another back make a bid to make the team if the Chiefs decide to move on from third-stringer Cyrus Gray.

The Chiefs also confirmed that linebacker Justin Houston has a knee sprain and bone bruise and announced that wide receiver Dwayne Bowe had a minor foot sprain. Running back Jamaal Charles, cornerback Brandon Flowers and wide receiver Donnie Avery all suffered concussions and, per Reid, are all improving while going through concussion testing.

    They were dropping like flies, 6-10 next year.

    This is what happens after you play a long season not so much Davies but the other starters

    If KC had won that game, they would of lost easily this weekend with all those injuries. Hopefully Davis heals up quickly. He did a good job for a rookie this year.

    Good thing they rested all their starters in that final regular season game to get them healthy.

    The Chiefs are still a couple of weapons away from being SB bound…Particularly in the secondary..they’ll get there..You haven’t seen the last of the KC Chiefs…Hopefully in the off-season Andy Reid can work towards learning how to run the clock and put teams away, when it calls for it.

    This kid is shaping up to be the next Fred Taylor. Tremendous talent, but made of glass.

    That was a brutal game for the Chiefs… not sure I’ve ever seen one team lose so many impact players in the course of one game.

    He seemed fine when he first fell. Colts D was being dirty in the pile up.. Also, refs blew a facemask call on that play which woulda put KC in FG range… Tough game for chiefs fans to swallow

    “… 6-10 next year.” With 7 games against playoff teams it’s possible.

    The Raiders have a legit shot to go 0-16 next year. They have 9 games against playoff teams.
    They will get swept by the AFC & NFC West, that’s 10 losses. They will lose to NE. They might catch BUF, NYJ, MIA, CLE, or HOU on a bad day and avoid the O-fer.
