Chiefs tight end Tony Moeaki has been in the NFL for three seasons and in each of those three seasons, Moeaki has missed at least one regular season game to injury. That streak could continue in 2013 after Moeaki's latest setback.

Coach Andy Reid announced on the Monday that Moeaki suffered a shoulder fracture in Kansas City's 26-20 preseason overtime win over the Steelers on Saturday. Reid didn't give a timetable for Moeaki's return.

The Chiefs open regular season play on Sept. 8 when they travel to Jacksonville.

This isn't Moeaki's first time dealing with an injury -- or even his second or third time. Moeaki didn't participate in the Chiefs offseason training program, thanks to a knee injury. A knee injury also cost the injury-riddled Moeaki the entire 2011 season. Moeaki played in 15 games for the Chiefs in both 2010 and 2012.

If Moeaki's injury keeps him out for any extended period of time, the Chiefs won't be crippled at tight end. Kansas City signed Anthony Fasano in March and used a third-round pick on Travis Kelce in April's NFL Draft.
