Chiefs Injury Report: Safety Dan Sorensen Has Surgery, Plus Other Updates from Saturday 

Here’s what you need to know about the Chiefs’ injury front

After the Kansas City Chiefs finished up practice Saturday morning, Rick Burkholder—the team's Vice President of Sports Medicine and Performance—spoke with the local media about the injury suffered by veteran safety Dan Sorensen last week.

"Dan hurt his left knee at practice," Burkholder explained. "He has what's called a tibia plateau fracture. So, it's his tibia, which is your shin bone—he has a fracture in there. He was fixed at the University of Kansas Health System by two surgeons—John Sojka, and Paul Schroeppel. He also had an MCL injury and a lateral meniscus tear. They were all fixed.

"We now have to wait for the bone to heal," he continued. "So, with all bones that are broken, we will reexamine him at six weeks. So, there's no time frame other than we're going to reexamine him then. He'll be up today to begin his formal rehab with us."

In addition to Sorensen, here are the other guys who didn't practice for the Chiefs on Saturday:
