Original Story:

Chiefs‘ training camp took an unexpected turn on Tuesday as wide receiver Justyn Ross was carted off the field due to a leg injury during practice, according to ESPN’s Adam Teicher.

Head coach Andy Reid confirmed Ross’ injury but refrained from providing specific details regarding the nature and severity of the injury.

The team is currently awaiting further evaluation to determine the extent of the damage and the potential impact on Ross’ availability for upcoming games.

Ross, a former standout receiver for Clemson University, joined the Chiefs in 2022 with high expectations. However, his NFL journey has been marred by setbacks, as he spent his rookie season on the sidelines and missed the entirety of the 2022 season due to a foot injury.

Despite these challenges, the 23-year old made his long-awaited NFL debut in the Chiefs’ preseason opener against the New Orleans Saints, showcasing his skills with two receptions for 29 yards and a touchdown in a losing effort.

Fans and team management were hopeful that Ross could finally contribute to the Chiefs’ receiving corps this season. However, his recent injury casts uncertainty over his immediate future and potential impact on the team’s offense.

Ross’ participation in future practices and preseason games hinges on the upcoming medical evaluation and recommendations from the Chiefs’ medical staff.
