KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs have placed linebacker Willie Gay Jr. on injured reserve, a spokesperson confirmed to KSHB 41 Sports Thursday.
On Tuesday, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said Gay suffered a toe injury in the team's final preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Coming off an impressive training camp, Gay is expected to play a big role in his sophomore season.
Gay landing on the IR means he will be out for at least three games. Week 4 would potentially be Gay’s first game back when the Chiefs play the Philadelphia Eagles on the road Oct. 3.
