The Kansas City Chiefs could be dealing with their first injury before their first official practice. Per Aaron Wilson, Tony Moeaki will not be suited up for that practice.
Chiefs TE Tony Moeaki on physically unable to perform list.
When he arrived to camp on Thursday with the rest of his teammates, Moeaki spoke as if everything were status quo.
“Certainly last year making the playoffs was a big step but it’s a new year, new team” the second-year tight end said. “We need to get better, have a good training camp, and take it from there.”
If he’s on the PUP list, Moeaki won’t be allowed to practice but can still rehab and study with the Chiefs as if nothing’s wrong. He also can be moved to the active roster at any point during training camp. However, if Kansas City has him (or any other player) on PUP at the beginning of the regular season, Moeaki will be out at least the first six games of the season.
Obviously the longer he stays on the PUP list, the more likely Matt Cassel will be without one of his favorite targets for the first six games. But there’s a good chance he hits the practice field soon. Just don’t expect to get much information for Moeaki, Haley or anyone else in the Chiefs organization.
