Tight End Martin Rucker Could Be Facing Knee Surgery

According to a story on KCChiefs.com, tight end Martin Rucker from the University of Missouri could be facing season ending ACL surgery on his injured right knee. Martin injured himself last Friday during a goal line drill while participating in the Chiefs OTA workouts.

Romeo Crennel says that the fourth year tight end will seek a second opinion before opting for surgery

"He's going to get a second opinion on it and then he's going to make a decision about what he wants to do, but it doesn't look good overall." Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel said following Thursday's OTA session.

Martin was originally drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the fourth round of the 2008 NFL Draft. Since then he has played for the Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys and the Jacksonville Jaguars.
