Oft-injured Chiefs tight end Tony Moeaki’s career has suffered another setback.
Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Moeaki suffered a shoulder fracture in last Saturday night’s overtime win at Pittsburgh. It is uncertain how long he will be out.
Moeaki, a four-year veteran, had a history of injuries in college at Iowa, and it has followed him with the Chiefs., He missed all of the 2011 season with a knee injury sustained in the final pre-season game, and he missed all of the off-season program this year after undergoing a procedure on his knee.
Moeaki, who caught 47 passes for 556 yards and three touchdowns in 15 games as a rookie, also played in 15 games last season and caught 33 passes for 453 yards and a touchdown. He missed one game 2010 and 2012 due to a head injury.
In addition to Moeaki, rookie linebacker Nico Johnson (high ankle sprain), guard Jon Asamoah (calf strain) and wide receiver Dexter McCluster (illness) were not expected to practice today.
