Chiefs Rookie Sanders Commings Fractures Clavicle


According to Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star, via twitter, Kansas City Chiefs’ 5th round draft pick, defensive back Sanders Commings, out of  Georgia, fractured his left clavicle during training camp in St. Joseph, Missouri on Tuesday.

The Chiefs need Commings, a 6’2″, 217 pound defensive back, to develop into a legitimate option for playing time in the secondary. This injury will certainly push back that development. Commings played cornerback in college for the Bulldogs but looked to be penciled in as depth as a safety.

Despite his 5th round draft status, Commings is a versatile, physical player, who could have been a big help in the Chiefs secondary. At this time, it is not known how long Commings will out of action due to this injury.

 

 

 

 

KC Kingdom will update this post when more details are known.

UPDATE: Commings could miss 2-6 weeks recovering from this injury, which will certainly hurt his development. He could miss all four preseason games.
