It was very clear from the beginning that the Chiefs offense was going to be in trouble without Tony Moeaki. While other key players like Jamaal Charles were also out, Matt Cassel (or any other quarterback that the Chiefs started for that matter) was clearly lost without his dependable target at tight end last year, so the team is hoping that Tony Moeaki can return to form after a season-ending injury due to torn knee ligaments.
‘’Rehab is good,’’ Moeaki said to Adam Teicher of the KC Star recently. ‘’As far as team activities, I’m just doing what the trainers and the coaching staff tells me to do. I don’t really know until we get there.’’
Moeaki said that the loss of the season was frustrating, which is an obvious statement for any athlete. Still, he’s ready to move on.
‘’It was pretty frustrating,’’ said Moeaki, who indicated he hasn’t watched any video of the play on which he was injured. ‘’You can’t do what you like to do. You just have to watch. That’s pretty tough.’’
The Chiefs also added some insurance this offseason in the form of veteran Kevin Boss, who was also injured significantly last year with the Oakland Raiders. Between the pair, the Chiefs will either have two tight ends who can be weapons in the passing game or two players who struggle to play on the field together.
