Conley ruptured his Achilles in Sunday's win over the Texans. The pass-catcher had tallied 46 yards on three receptions before suffering the injury. He had not been a major part of the offense prior to going down, recording just 11 receptions for 175 yards and zero touchdowns in five games. Albert Wilson figures to see increased reps with Conley now on the IR.
Conley left Sunday's win over Houston in the fourth quarter with a ruptured Achilles, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.
Conley had three receptions for 46 yards before departing for what will be a season-ending injury. The third-year wideout hadn't been a major part of the Chiefs' passing attack, notching just 11 receptions for 175 yards and no scores in five contests.
Conley caught just two passes on four targets for 31 yards Monday against the Redskins.
Despite playing the most snaps among receivers for most of the season, Conley has turned it into just eight catches for 129 yards through four contests. At this point, it's difficult to justify rostering the 24-year-old wideout in the vast majority of leagues.
Conley didn't catch a pass during Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Conley saw the field on 81 percent of offensive snaps, even more than top wideout Tyrek Hill. The second-year man out of Georgia has yet to realize his potential and may be running out of time to do so. There's nothing to suggest he will be more involved in the offense moving forward.
Conley caught all four of his targets for 55 yards during Sunday's victory over the Eagles.
After snagging just 63.8 percent of his targets a season ago, Conley's upped that in the early going so far in 2017 to 75 percent through the first two contests. He continues to play the majority of snaps (87 percent Sunday) for Kansas City, but until the volume increases, he's unlikely to reliably contribute on a weekly basis.
