Jon McGraw Injury Update: Safety Will Miss Second Straight Game

If the Kansas City Chiefs are going to keep their playoff hopes alive Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, they will be doing so without starting safety Jon McGraw, who will miss his second straight game with a high ankle sprain:

Jon McGraw is expected to miss his second-straight game with a high ankle sprain. 

McGraw, a ten-year NFL veteran from Kansas State, has started nine games this season despite struggling through a shoulder injury.

The 6'3 205 defensive back has 47 tackles and 3 INT's for the Chiefs this season.

His prognosis going forward is unclear, as high ankle sprains are much more serious than ones lower on the bone. They are notoriously difficult to heal and easy to re-injure, especially for a player whose job consists primarily of making sharp cuts and leaping.

McGraw was replaced by Sabby Piscitelli, a fifth-year safety out of Oregon State, in the starting line-up last week.
