It’s rare that you actually see Achilles tendon injury like the one Chiefs receiver Chris Conley suffered during Sunday night’s win at Houston.
Conley was hurt after fielding an onside kick, and the replay showed a sort of ripple go up his calf when he landed after catching the ball. Not sure I’ve seen that before.
It’s likely that Conley’s season is over, and he was on crutches after the game. However, he tweeted this on Sunday night: “Glory to God in our wins and our losses. He knows the plans he has for me.”
