Chiefs Marcus Cooper injured; Sanders Commings diagnosed with broken ankle

The Kansas City Chiefs had their fair share of injuries during Thursday morning’s practice session at Missouri Western State University.

Starting strong safety Eric Berry left the field with an undisclosed ankle injury, as reported earlier. Berry was carted off of the field, but able to put weight on the injured leg.

The team then lost cornerback Marcus Cooper, who was also carted off the field, to a hamstring injury.

Both of the injuries are being reported via Twitter by ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher.

The loss of Cooper leaves the Chiefs looking hard at their cornerback depth.

The team lost Sanders Commings yesterday and it is now being reported that his injury is a broken ankle that will require surgery.

The Chiefs will turn to Daniel Sorrenson to take over the duties of Eric Berry until he is ready to return. The injury to Commings came yesterday after a juke move by starting tailback Jamaal Charles left Commings on the ground. He was carted off the field on the back of a cart.

The injury to Cooper is reportedly a strained hamstring which will likely keep him out a week depending on the severity. The biggest loss of the three isCommings who could miss the season depending on how bad the broken ankle is and how well the surgery goes. At minimum he will likely miss the first half of the season if not more. The severity of  Eric Berry’s injury is not yet know and the Chiefs do not want to be without one of their best players on defense.
