Kansas City Chiefs Lose Key Star Before Playoffs

The Kansas City Chiefs lost a key star before the playoffs.

On the very same day that the team firmly cemented the No. 2 AFC seed and a first round bye, the Chiefs also potentially lost one of their best players.

Rookie safety Juan Thornhill suffered what has been described as a “significant” knee injury during Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles chargers.

Thornhill has been absolutely key to Kansas City’s defense this season, and any prolonged absence will come at a huge price.

The second round draft pick out of Virginia started every game so far this season for the Chiefs. Thus far, he has recorded 58 tackles and three interceptions. In Week 13 against the Oakland Raiders, he also returned a pick for a 46-yard score.

A final decision on Thornhill’s status for the playoffs should be announced at some point on Monday.
