Justyn Ross had a congenital fusion of his upper cervical spine and then a surgical fusion at a level below performed by Dr. David Okonkwo, a respected Steelers doc. Many teams had taken him off their draft boards, so the risk was real. But the talent is also real. Lands in KC. https://t.co/GcK4HR1q6O

Per https://t.co/yGDcvMis04, Justyn Ross once peaked as the #22 ranked player in the 2022 draft class, if you’re wondering where he could’ve been taken had injuries not derailed his career.

If you have 20 minutes to spare, this video goes in depth on Ross’s history.
In other news, the Chiefs tagged Melvin Ingram with a tender, so he will (probably) return, and even if he doesn’t the team will get a draft pick for their trouble.
The Chiefs used the UFA tender on Melvin Ingram, meaning they now have a one-year, $4.4 million offer on the table for him, and they can get a compensatory pick if he signs with another team. https://t.co/E0DoTaLw1t
