Kansas City Chiefs safety Kendrick Lewis is currently recovering from offseason surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle that he suffered during the season. He told the Kansas City Star that he isn’t sure whether or not he’ll be ready to go for training camp.
“Whenever the trainers say it’s cool for me, whenever they release me,” Lewis said when asked when he would be available to play. “I’m just playing it by ear, waiting it out. Everything is going smooth, according to plan, so whenever they’re ready to release me, that’s when it is. I’m just going on their call.
“It’s real frustrating because I love the game. We’ve been away from it so long, and to see the guys going out there, going back to work, having fun, doing it … I looked at them like, ‘Man, I wish I could be out there.’ But I’ve got to be patient and do whatever the trainers and coaches say and get back when I’m ready.”
Right now the Chiefs don’t seem concerned about Lewis, since they haven’t made a strong push to sign any veteran safeties in his absence.Follow PFZ on Twitter @ProFootballZone
