The Kansas City Chiefs took another big hit Thursday night as up-and-coming tight end Tony Moeaki left the team's preseason game against the Green Bay Packers after suffering a knee injury. No details regarding extent of the injury have been disclosed at this time.
CBSSports.com journalist Dave Richard reports that Moeaki remained in the locker room after the conclusion halftime, presumably getting checked out by team doctors.
After capping a surprising rookie season with 47 catches, 556 yards, and three touchdowns, the Chiefs' headed into the 2011 campaign with grand expectations for their young emerging threat. At six-foot-three, 252 pounds, Moeaki was primed to deliver with a featured role in the offense until Thursday's setback. One would think that Kansas City head coach Todd Haley would have learned his lesson after continually making this exact same mistake in the past.
