Gonzo re-injures knee

Postby Homeless » Tue Aug 26, 2003 5:50 pm

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Kansas City Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez injured his left knee during practice Tuesday when he was hit while reaching for a pass.

Coach Dick Vermeil said early indications were that the injury did not threaten the All-Pro's career or season.

``I think it will be short term, but that's a first look,'' Vermeil said.

The coach said Gonzalez was twisting to reach for a pass thrown behind him when he was hit at the same time.

``You hate that part of this game and always will and you hate it more when it's a high caliber and quality football player and a great person,'' Vermeil said.

Vermeil said Gonzalez's injury did not appear to be as serious as his knee injury of two years ago.

``He strained his knee, but there was no swelling and it wasn't loose,'' Vermeil said.

I'm sure he'll be fine, but at least I didn't draft him.

"We’re very pleased that it wasn’t serious (Tony Gonzalez's twisted knee) and that he feels pretty good this morning. A little bit stiff. The trainers felt very good about how the knee responded over night. So, we’re a lot more optimistic about him possibly being ready for San Diego than we were." When asked if there were any tears, Vermeil replied, "Tiny, the kind you don’t repair and heal on their own."
