If you would have told me that an injury to Joe McKnight would be big news even a week ago, I’d have probably had to fight back a laugh. After his 2 touchdown performance Sunday though it looked like the Chiefs might have found a diamond in the rough.
Andy Reid went as far as to tell McKnight that he was “back” after the game last week. As disappointed as I am as a Chiefs fan, this is such a depressing blow for McKnight.
McKnight is the third Chiefs player after only 3 weeks of the season to suffer an achilles tear. Based on our experience with this type of injury you can expect to hear that McKnight will be put on season ending IR.
