Recently Field Yates broke the news that Willie Gay Jr. will be placed on IR with the Kansas City Chiefs. This means that for the first three games of the season, Willie Gay Jr. will be unavailable to play due to his turf toe injury suffered in the preseason. Arrowhead Guys, I wish there was a ’90s expression to show our displeasure about this situation, but I got nothing. . .
[Except for Adam’s Teicher’s thoughts on the Chiefs floor]

Today is another one of those days Captain Picard:
Willie Gay Jr. To IR:
The Chiefs have placed starting LB Willie Gay on IR, meaning he is out for at least 3 games.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) September 2, 2021
There’s initial optimism that Willie Gay’s toe injury isn’t serious, I’m told, but that can be a tricky injury. The next few days or week will reveal more as he receives treatment.— Sam McDowell (@SamMcDowell11) August 31, 2021
Rather than having a Breaking News Post and an Open Thread for the evening, AG decided to combine them. So please utilize this as the evenings Open Thread. Additionally. . .
With the Willie Gay Jr. situation, please keep in mind that it’s a turf toe injury and that Willie should only miss about three games. Additionally, I think/believe Chiefs rookie LB Nick Bolton will get some valuable experience from getting thrown into the fire early next to Anthony Hitchens against the Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens and the Los Angeles Chargers (the Chiefs first three opponents). With or without Willie Gay Jr. and/or Adam Teicher’s positivity the Chiefs season is on its way.
