The Kansas City Chiefs had a few big injuries during their Week 6 comeback win over the Washington Football Team.
After the game, Chiefs HC Andy Reid provided reporters with an update on two players who left the game with an injury, LB Anthony Hitchens and TE Jody Fortson. Hitchens is the quarterback of the defense, wearing the green dot and calling all the plays on that side of the ball. Fortson is a fan-favorite after emerging at the tight end position during the preseason and a productive red-zone target this season.
Unfortunately, it’s the worst-case scenario for Fortson, but there is some optimism with Hitchens.
“Jody Fortson tore his Achilles,” Reid said. “And (Anthony Hitchens) had an elbow, they’re going to MRI it tomorrow and we’ll see.”
