Duvernay-Tardif (lower leg) still has a chance to return in 2018, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.
After Duvernay-Tardif was diagnosed with a broken left fibula sustained in the Chiefs' Week 5 matchup with the Jaguars, he complained of pain in his ankle. An MRI revealed that he sustained a maisonneuve fracture, meaning that he tore ligaments in his ankle along with the broken fibula. Regardless, head coach Andy Reid believes there is still a chance Duvernay-Tardif can return this season.
Duvernay-Tardif, the Chiefs' starting right guard and one of the NFL's better interior linemen, sustained a fractured left fibula in Sunday's 30-14 win over the Jaguars. While the move to IR will require him to miss the next eight weeks, the Chiefs anticipate that Duvernay-Tardif's recovery timeline will allow him to return from IR before the end of the season. He'll be a leading candidate for one of the Chiefs' two designated-to-return spots. Jordan Devey and Andrew Wylie are likely to act as the primary replacements while Duvernay-Tardif is sidelined.
