Joe Mays to have surgery on injured wrist

Chiefs Training Camp AP

The Kansas City Chiefs will have to get by without the services of linebacker Joe Mays for the immediate future.

According to Dave Skretta of the Associated Press, Mays is set to have surgery on a wrist injury suffered last week against the Carolina Panthers.

Mays was penciled in as the second starting inside linebacker for Kansas City alongside Derrick Johnson. He is expected to have surgery later this week. Though no timetable is given for Mays’ expected return, the Chiefs will have to move forward without Mays for the time being.

Mays appeared in 14 games, making 13 starts, for the Houston Texans last season. He compiled 67 tackles, a sack and three passes defended on the season. The injury likely means linebackers James Michael-Johnson and Josh Mauga will be called upon to fill the void in the meantime.

    Got to give this guy a hand. Undrafted, under 6 foot, but still he is entering his 7th season with a whole bunch of production.
