“Worst case: 3 letters starting with “A,” the former head team physician for the San Diego Chargers from 1997-2013 tweeted, explaining that this knee hyperextension could actually show itself to be the dreaded torn ACL that will ruin many fantasy football teams and potentially crater the Chiefs’ Super Bowl aspirations.It did appear the Chiefs avoided the worst-case scenario, though.

According to multiple reports, Kelce’s injury is not expected to be long-term, with the team waiting for the swelling in his knee to decrease before determining an official Week 1 status.

The 33-year-old Kelce is an eight-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time Super Bowl champion.

He has seven consecutive 1,000-yard seasons and is quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ best option in the Chiefs’ passing game.

The defending champs are also missing their star defensive player Chris Jones, due to a contract dispute.


Reid said there has been “no progress” with the Defensive Player of the Year runner-up.

“We’re focused on the guys who are here. If you’re not there, you’re not there,” he said.
