The Chiefs were able to breathe a sigh of relief on Monday as test results showed that center Mitch Morse does not need surgery for his sprained foot, a source confirmed to The Star on Monday.
Morse, 25, is expected to miss a few weeks, the source said.
He left the Chiefs’ 27-20 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday because of a foot injury. Morse was spotted in the locker room with a boot on his left foot and was using crutches to get around.
Morse, a second-round pick in 2015, is in his third year as the Chiefs’ starting center. Zach Fulton, a fourth-year pro with experience at the position, is expected to fill in while Morse is out.
