KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Chiefs offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif missed all of the 2020 season as he opted out to work on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Getting back to football, his comeback will be delayed.
Tuesday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Duvernay-Tardif will be sidelined four to six weeks with a broken bone in his hand.
No surgery will be needed and Duvernay-Tardif does have a chance to play in Week 1 when the Chiefs kick off the season against the Browns on Sept. 12, Rapoport added.
Duvernay-Tardif will aim to make kick-off of the first regular-season game.
