Second Year Tight End Tony Moeaki Is Ready To Go With The Kansas City Chiefs

After having to stand on the sidelines for the first week of training camp, second year tight end Tony Moeaki is ready to resume full practice for the Chiefs after having knee surgery during the offseason.

Surffering from a history of injuries going back to his time at the University of Iowa, it now appears this will be viewed as just a minor surgery for Moeaki and there shouldn't be any lingering issues as he begins year number two.

Moeaki became a key cog of the Kansas City offense during his rookie year in which he hauled in 47 receptions for 556 yards and three touchdowns. Not a bad debut for the 24-year old who was a third round draft choice in 2010.

The guys over at Arrowhead Pride also wrote about the news of Moeaki being able to start practicing. The Chiefs will rely heavily on Moeaki this season as Leonard Pope is the only other returning tight end with much game experience. Cody Slate has also been participating in camp at tight end while former Chiefs draft pick Brad Cottam was released during the offseason.
