Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce left practice early on Monday because of a leg injury. Kelce walked off on his own power, but the extent of the injury is unknown. Trainer Rick Burkholder said the team will have an update on Kelce’s condition on Tuesday.
In Kelce’s absence Monday, the Chiefs turned to veterans Ryan Taylor and Richard Gordon, rookie James O’Shaughnessy and second-year pro Demetrius Harris, who recently returned to practice after overcoming multiple surgeries and a staph infection on his foot.
Kelce, 25, is being counted on to lead the tight end group, since veteran Anthony Fasano was released in February. Kelce caught 67 passes for 862 yards and five touchdowns in 2014.
