Kansas City Chief cornerback Kendall Fuller sustained a fracture to his wrist on Thursday’s night’s loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. He had surgery shortly after and is not expected to miss any time, according to reports.
Kendall most likely had a break to his radius bone, which is the largest bone in the forearm, or the scaphoid bone in the hand and wrist junction. Fixing the bone with plates and/or screws is extremely strong and allows for almost immediate movement. He will likely play with a cast for protection, although this will be bulky. Especially, as a cornerback, this will limit his ability to intercept passes and he will likely be more willing to bat down passes. Expect him to line up on the weaker side for matchups and to be targeted by opposing quarterbacks or even play limited snaps.
