First-round edge rusher Felix Anudike-Uzomah isn’t the only Chiefs player recovering from offseason surgery.

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid confirmed that running back Isiah Pacheco is also on the mend after a pair of surgeries. Pacheco had an injury to his hand and a torn labrum repaired in those operations.

“He’s making progress. We’ll just see how he does with it,” Reid said, via Charles Goldman of

Pacheco led the Chiefs with 170 carries, 830 rushing yards, and five rushing touchdowns last season. He also ran 37 times for 197 yards and a touchdown in the postseason.

The Chiefs also have Jerick McKinnon and Clyde Edwards-Helaire back in the backfield from last season.

  1. That’s not good.
    Pacheco’s fierce running style reminds a lot of Chris Ivory. Hopefully he doesn’t suffer through the same volume of injuries, because this is a troubling start.

  2. Pacheco runs downhill with purpose. Fearless runner.

  3. Talk about a Gladiator. Nothing was going to stop Isiah from playing in the super bowl. We are proud he is a Chief.

  4. Labrum makes a big difference between the shoulder or hip, so maybe want to clarify that.

  5. That’s the kind of tough minded individuals that it takes to make up championship teams!!

  6. Isiah Pachecho, a stud no doubt about it. Do you think he is helping lower cost of RBs in the NFL? Is he just more evidence that the position has been over drafted and over paid? Should this be address by the league, RBS are treated like a HS kid treats their first car. WR position is so over paid. I don’t know what to do, but what if the NFL capped position salary by percentage? They beat the crap out of their RBs and toss them out, maybe it is as simple making a RBs eligible for lifetime benefits in half the time of other positions?
