Rodney Hudson injury: Romeo Crennel says center won't return in 2012

Kevin Hoffman-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel confirmed that there's no way C Rodney Hudson is coming back in 2012.

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel shared with the media that center Rodney Hudson (broken leg) will not be designated to return from the injured reserve, according to the transcript from his Wednesday press conference.

Here's precisely what Crennel had to say on the subject when asked if Hudson would be eligible to return down the road:

"Hudson will remain on IR right now because the way it looks, it's going to be several weeks with him...There's a broken bone, but it doesn't require surgery and he's got to be off of it for several weeks and then several weeks on crutches, so it's going to be most of the season. It's going to be most of the season, so that's why he's not going to be able to come back."

Crennel also confirmed that Hudson's ACL was unaffected while adding that Ryan Lilja will be his replacement at center this week.

Hudson was a 2011 second round draft selection (55th overall) of the Chiefs after starting all four years at multiple positions across the line at Florida State.
