NFL Injury Report:
Kansas City Chiefs rookie cornerback Sanders Commings is out indefinitely with a broken left clavicle, according to Paul Newberry of the Associated Press (See AP Article Here). Commings sustained the injury in the first training camp practice of his career. According to reports, the injury happened while attempting to defend a pass intended for Chiefs tight end Tony Moeaki. The team had yet to don their practice pads when the injury occurred.
While this particular injury shouldn’t keep Commings out for the season, it could seriously hinder his chances of being a contributor in 2013. Training camp is a huge adjustment period for rookies and Commings is missing out on valuable reps.
The 6’0” rookie out of Georgia will have some stiff competition in the Chiefs secondary when he returns from injury. Kansas City already has projected starters in pro bowler Brandon Flowers and versatile cover-corner Sean Smith, who was acquired this offseason via free agency. Although, Commings’ length and aggressiveness on the edge should help him acclimate to the NFL, he will certainly have some catching-up to do upon his return.
