KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Chiefs injured linebacker Willie Gay Jr. is close to making his 2021 debut.
Speaking with reporters Monday after his team’s 42-30 win over the Philadelphia Eagles, Andy Reid said the second-year backer is close to returning from a preseason toe injury.
“He was kind of getting there last week,” Reid said. “ He's starting to feel a little bit better for sure.”
Kansas City’s defense has struggled in Gay’s absence, allowing 33.5 points per game en route to a 2-2 start.
Kansas City’s defense faces a strong test against AFC contender Buffalo in primetime, Sunday Oct, 10. on KSHB 41.
