Reports: Chiefs G Laurent Duvernay-Tardif breaks hand
Kansas City Chiefs guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif broke his hand during a practice last week, according to multiple reports.
Duvernay-Tardif is expected to be sidelined about four weeks.
The timeline gives Duvernay-Tardif a chance at being available for the team’s regular-season opener on Sept. 12 against the Cleveland Browns.
Duvernay-Tardif has been working as the second-team right guard in training camp behind rookie Trey Smith.
The 30-year-old Canadian has started 57 of 60 games played during five seasons with the Chiefs.
He opted out of the 2020 season and spent time working at a nursing home helping COVID-19 patients in Montreal, where he grew up. Last month, ESPN named him Sports Humanitarian of the Year at their ESPY awards show.
Duvernay-Tardif has started six postseason games for Kansas City, including all three as the club claimed the 2019 title, beating the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl.
