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.
