[KC Chiefs.com] After receiving a second opinion on his injured right knee, tight end Martin Rucker has opted to undergo season-ending surgery. Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel announced the news following Wednesday’s minicamp practice.
Rucker was originally hurt in a goal line drill on June 1st and is scheduled to undergo surgery later this week. The Chiefs officially placed the three-year NFL veteran on injured reserve late Wednesday afternoon.
“He’s going to take some time to recover from (surgery), so we’re going to put him on IR and then go from there,” Crennel said after practice.
