Chiefs TE Moeaki has fractured shoulder

Kansas City Chiefs tight end Tony Moeaki is out with a fractured shoulder, but coach Andy Reid said he is not sure how long.

Moeaki was injured during Saturday's preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Chiefs have reinforcements at tight end. They signed Anthony Fasano in the offseason and drafted Travis Kelce in the third round of the draft.

Moeaki, in his fourth NFL season, has battled a series of injuries during his career. He played in 15 games in 2012 but made only 33 receptions for 453 with a touchdown. He missed several practices late in the season with a head injury.

"He's had a couple of injuries, but I think some of those -- in a lot of cases, with different players, sometimes you can change that around in your career," Reid said. "Hopefully this is his last one and he'll be able to keep going."

Kelce is also injured. He did not play against the Steelers because of a bruised knee but Reid said he could return to practice this week.

Reid likes to use multiple tight ends in his offense, sometimes up to three on the field at the same time. Fasano is first on the depth chart, followed by Kelce and then Moeaki.
