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.

Let's hope that that streak finally ends. Though I understand why they did it each time, it's still sucks as both players went on to have very productive times after they left us.

I agree with Meck. Humphrey's upside is off the charts and I think he wins that job. If Remmers wins the RT job, I could see Smith in the mix at RG but I don't think Andy rolls with Humphrey, Niang, AND Smith.
I'm still wary of someone winning the job after not playing football in 2 years. I can see Creed and LDT I guess but I still say the Remmers takes the RT. We'll see though. The C--->RT part of our Oline is by far the most interesting battle that will be going on in camp.

I want nothing to do with LDT at RG. He's been out for a year and now isn't coming to camp (granted I think thats because of border issues?).

I've never been a big fan as a player of his anyway. Seems overrated

Remmers was our week one starting RG last year was he not?

Luckily for the Chiefs it was early, so gives more gel opportunity for the guys that might stay healthy.


I think he would have made a good CBOTY candidate that would have made a feel good story but I didn't have any expectations of it.


Also I'm glad he can give up reps for the younger guys that need the reps so this is probably a blessing for Chiefs.

Brown - Thuney - Humphrey - LDT - Niang

I imagine this is how the line looks at the start of the year. LDT may have been out for a year but there's no way they play 3 rookies on one side of the line and I'd rather LDT be in than Remmers or whoever the fuck else is left on the depth chart.

Blythe has a good chancd at the spot, he didn't sit a year and is a better guard than center.

I think Remmers is the best chance at taking the starters spot. Andy likes him and despite what ppl think here he wasn't terrible at RT. Everyone just remembers the Super Bowl and how godawful he was on the left side. He's fine for a year, while Niang learns how to play football again.

I had Long beating out LDT, but he can't stay healthy so I have no idea on that-I'm hoping for Smith though. Center, like I said Blyth was pretty good with the Rams but everyone is in agreement that Creed is awesome. I just feel like they won't start a rookie there if they have a perfectly good vet they can pair with Mahomes. It's title or bust this year, so why leave this stuff in a rookie's hands if you don't have to? Especially on the 2nd most important spot on the offensive line.

Injuries at this time of year?
This isn’t the Broncos message board.
