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.

So you want to change the entire offense?

No thanks.

Relying on Mahomes to be magic is how we ended up getting our ass kicked in the Super Bowl.

He IS magic, but that should not be your gameplan.

Or cut. We have plenty of depth without him and what good is he for depth if he's almost for sure going to get injured again.

There's still a decent chance that Long will get to play his part before the season is done. With a 17 game schedule, plus the playoffs, it's likely someone on the line will need an injury replacement. Maybe multiple folks again. Assuming Long can get back by midseason, he may still end up as a valuable card to be played.

I'm good with LDT and Smith battling this out for the starting RG spot. If I'm being totally honest, I never really believed Kyle Long would remain healthy enough to be in the lineup anyway. I just assumed it would happen sometime during the course of the season. smh

True. They really don't HAVE to do anything, he's on the cheap. So they have a ton of options and they're not really depending on him for anything, so it's still pretty much all upside.

He was a long shot to be a major contributor in the end anyway. Let him heal up and come back later in the season for depth if needed.

Yep. I always figured best case he'd be quality depth anyway. I never had him as a starter. And, if you think about it, he could be the guy who could fill in for a couple games here & there. That might be realistically all he can handle, before he starts breaking down. But, if he can play at a decent level, it's not a bad thing. You're right, him being hurt is a non issue.

Turdsnif needs to be replaced. I was hoping Long could hold it down till the youngun was ready.

If these guys are any good, he won't be running for his life. A play here and there? Maybe. All three of those guys have high marks coming out. Not developmental status.
