KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that Chiefs linebacker Joe Mays will have surgery on his wrist after hurting it in a preseason game against Carolina and could miss the start of the season.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday because the team had not disclosed the surgery, which is expected to take place later this week.
The Chiefs play the Vikings in their third preseason game Saturday night.
Mays signed a $6 million, two-year contract with the Chiefs in the offseason, and he was expected to start alongside Derrick Johnson at inside linebacker. Known for his ability to stuff the run, Mays had been having a productive training camp with the Chiefs.
