The Gonzo Lounge>Kyle Long may miss training camp with leg injury
TribalElder 07:15 AM 06-10-2021
Kyle Long‘s 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.

Are you going to tell opposing defenses to please not stunt or run any zone blitzes so as not to confuse our rookie offensive linemen?

No, you start LDT at RG in between Humphrey and Niang so you've got one guy there that's seen it all before.

Run the ball, play action, get it out quick etc.

Maybe Long is the injury version of a dream catcher. Eat it blood magic.

I knew he had retired/took the year off due to injuries but I didn't realize how much game time he had missed the four seasons prior to 2020.

We run shotgun 77% of the time. Mahomes blind side should be no problem with Brown and Thuney protecting it. He would have the whole right side right in his vision the whole time. If something goes wrong once in a while, Mahomes is a magician at improvising. Shouldn't be a huge issue I wouldn't think.

He will be fine for the playoff drive in December/January. Save him until then.

I'm not surprised at all. This is who Long is. Before he retired, he missed a lot of time the last few years. He was a low risk high reward signing to begin with. That's why we have depth. LDT / Blythe (if he's not starting at Center) can handle it until Smith is ready. Want no part of Wylie

The guy was literally just in Hawaii with Patrick and Travis playing in Patrick’s charity golf tournament.

Did he get hammered out there and drop something on his knee or some shit?

I did everything I could to prepare to get back for football. Zero regrets. I’ve been getting better everyday and having so much fun with my new team. Focusing on controlling the things I can control. Yesterday was not one of those things! Thanks for the well wishes.

This.

I didn't want Long because I figured this would happen. Fortunately, they didn't stop with Long and they still have plenty of competition. He can be let go gently so there's no reason to worry about this at all.

Too bad he's not on the Texans, they're done with their pre-season preparation, just waiting on the opener at this point.

Correction: It's a lower-leg injury, but not a fractured kneecap. The timeline remains the same. Kyle Long has a chance to be ready Week 1. https://t.co/rDtjQPDoGE
