The Gonzo Lounge>Kyle Long may miss training camp with leg injury
TribalElder 07:15 AM 06-10-2021
Kyle LongĎs comeback effort has hit a snag.

NFL Media reports that Long suffered a leg injury that could keep him out through training camp. Initial thoughts were that it would keep him out for the season, but the hope is that Long will be able to return to action before the start of the regular season.

Long did not play in 2020 after missing 34 games over his final four years with the Bears due to injury, but signed with the Chiefs as part of their offensive line overhaul this offseason.

It looked like Long would be competing for the right guard spot during camp. Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, who is also returning from sitting out the 2020 season, Andrew Wylie and sixth-round pick Trey Smith may now make up the group vying for that spot.

He's decent for a backup. You're being a drama queen.
I thought he played pretty well for a back up, and could possibly take another step after some starting time and an offseason to digest it.

Hell bring back Osemele on the vet minimum and put his ass on the practice squad. Worst case scenario Armegedon happens and we have 4 guards injured and need his ass for a small stretch.

Sure beats the alternative
There is no reason to bring back Osemele. He's no different than Long at this point.

You can't be blaming the injuries and how the season turned out on LDT opting out????

They have already said that they will not be able to have veterans on the PS this year. They were last year because of Covid but that is over.

I think heís saying that after all the injuries last year he doesnít care that LDT is back because it might not be enough.

This signing is looking more and more like Kyle Turley 2.0.

Kyle Turley actually played in a game for the Chiefs.

It's debatable if Long will ever get that chance. Even if he comes back and stays healthy, the Chiefs will have moved on to find their starter in training camp, and might not be inclined to move that guy back to the bench if he's doing well.

Remember all the Kyle Turley hype? "His shoulder pads are stretched tight, you can barely tell that he has them on because hes in such good shape."

I honestly remember a lot of fans at the time saying ridiculous things like "We'll barely even miss Roaf..."

Good stuff.

Long was brought in here to compete knowing his injury history.

What happened was expected. It doesn't really change anything, he's headed to the bench and the questions have been answered.

I agree, they're going to find a starter and never look back.

In all seriousness, the Chiefs site put out a little promo spot of LDT and he looks to be in pretty good condition. If he can come in and just be average at right guard we should be fine.

If a right side of LDT/Remmers is the absolute worst we can do, we're in pretty good shape. Just no more damn injuries please.
