Randy Covitz of the Kansas City Star reported earlier this week that Kansas City Chiefs tight end Tony Moeaki suffered a shoulder fracture in Saturday night’s preseason game. Yesterday, 610 Sports’ Bob Fescoe reports that Andy Reid said it was “possible” Moeaki goes on injured reserve, which would end his season.

“Well, he has had a couple of injuries,” Reid said in another interview, “but in a lot of cases with different players, sometimes you can change that around in your career. Hopefully this is his last one, and he’ll be able to keep going.”

To make matters worse, the team doesn’t know when he’l be back, or who will be his replacement. The Chiefs signed Anthony Fasano in free agency and drafted Travis Kelce, who is dealing with a bruised knee. Reid said Kelce could be back in practice this week.

Still, with Kelce recovering from a knee bruise, and Moeaki’s shoulder injury, the Chiefs are hurting badly at the position entering the final round of roster cuts.

After Moeaki, the Chiefs tight end depth chart includes Kevin Brock and Demetrius Harris.
