    Chiefs tackle McIntosh is injured in practice

    By ADAM TEICHER

    The Kansas City Star


    RIVER FALLS, Wis. | The Chiefs laid bare their offseason priority for improvement in free agency by signing left tackle Damion McIntosh only hours after the market opened.


    They may now have to play without McIntosh for an extended period. He was taken from the field on a motorized cart at Monday’s afternoon practice because of what the Chiefs called a right knee sprain.


    Further tests were scheduled to determine the extent of the injury, but the Chiefs feared the worst. Coach Herm Edwards was already busy determining replacements from a short list that includes veteran Kyle Turley and inexperienced Will Svitek.


    “We’ll talk about what we’re going to do short-term and long-term,” said Edwards, who then tried to put the situation in a better light.


    “Remember last year and what happened to us on opening day?” he said, referring to quarterback Trent Green’s concussion. “We found a way to keep playing.”
    McIntosh, though, is one of the most indispensable of Chiefs. They never adequately covered the hole at left tackle last season after Willie Roaf’s abrupt retirement.


    Turley began the season as the left tackle but was replaced by Jordan Black in the third game. Black finished the season there but the Chiefs were determined to find an upgrade.


    They settled on McIntosh, a seven-year veteran with San Diego and Miami, and figured the problem was solved.


    It was until Monday. Svitek replaced McIntosh at left tackle after his departure. Turley was busy filling in for right tackle Chris Terry, who has a minor shoulder injury and didn’t practice.


    Turley was one of the league’s top tackles before back injuries forced him to miss two seasons. He returned to football last season with the Chiefs and started seven games, including five at right tackle.


    Svitek, a sixth-round pick two years ago, has played tackle in only one NFL regular-season game.
    THAT quarterback is NOT a Pro Bowl quarterback. Never was and never will be.

    Not with this guy. It's a loss but not a crucial one. There are 20 other guys out there that would do the same as him.

    LT is a serious skill position. Players are not a dime a dozen here. This will put us back at Kyle Turley.

    Your exactly right, it is a skill position. That is why there are only a few out there that are considered studs. The rest are in a bunch together. Kind of like the closer position in baseball.

    Yeah, but we were spoiled with Willie Roaf. I don't want to return to average and below. Not that McIntiosh was great but much better than average.

    Yup; now our already suspect "O" line has only grown more suspect and looks as if it will be that way for quite some time.

    Avg at best. I suggest we all lower our standards a bit because we are not going to see another tackle like that here in a loooooong time!!!! IMO, once you get past those select few you may as well put the rest of the names in a hat and start pickin!
