Mecole Hardman reportedly carted off field at Chiefs practice
Mecole Hardman suffered an apparent left leg injury at Kansas City Chiefs practice on Wednesday, and was carted off the field, according to multiple reports.
Hardman, in a red zone period, leaped for the ball and landed awkwardly before he was taken to the white medical tent, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reported.
Hardman is entering his fourth professional season, and is expected to take on an expanded role following the departure of wide receiver Tyreek Hill to Miami.
As a rookie, Hardman was selected to the Pro Bowl and voted second-team All-Pro, as he was an offensive contributor when the Chiefs won the Super Bowl. Over the last 3 seasons, Hardman has recorded 126 catches for 1,791 yards and 12 touchdowns.
In June, Hardman told the Associated Press that he’s not worried about the offense.
“I think we’re going to be a great offense. We still have the best quarterback in the NFL, the best tight end in the NFL. We’re going to lean on them,” he said. “We know they’re going to play every Sunday,” Hardman said. “The new guys, they’re learning the playbook, learning how we play here, the standard we have, so I think we’re going to be good.”
