The Kansas City Chiefs are trying to reestablish themselves as an AFC powerhouse, and Joe Thuney is not about to let a broken bone stop him from working toward that goal.

Thuney played through a broken hand in last week’s loss to the Buffalo Bills. James Palmer of NFL Network reports that the offensive lineman dealt with the injury for the entire game. He’s expected to do the same in Sunday’s game against Washington.

Thuney spent the first five years of his career with the New England Patriots before signing a five-year, $80 million deal with the Chiefs in March. The former NC State star has not missed a start since he was drafted back in 2016.

The Chiefs are 2-3 heading into Sunday’s game. They’re hoping a game against an inferior opponent will be just what the doctor ordered, but Thuney’s injury is certainly something to watch.
