Center Rodney Hudson to Miss the Rest of the Season for Chiefs
The Kansas City Chiefs got some bad news today as it was learned that 2nd year center Rodney Hudson, a second round draft pick from Florida State, will miss the remainder of the season with a broken bone in his leg. This is a tough break for a team that had finally regained some momentum by beating the New Orleans Saints in overtime last weekend.
Hudson looked like a suitable replacement to longtime Chief Casey Wiegmannand had been solid in his first few games before the injury. To compensate, Kansas City is moving Ryan Lilja, who’s never played the position in a real game, from guard to center and playing rookie 2nd rounder Jeff Allen from Illinois in at guard.
They have also signed veteran journeyman Russ Hochstein in case any more injury issues arise. While the 3rd quarter injury didn’t put much of a dent in running back Jamaal Charles‘s numbers, the team will have to adjust its gameplan. For a team that’s been decimated by the injuries of Charles, Eric Berry, Tony Moeaki, Matt Cassel last season and uncertainty currently surrounding Dexter McCluster and Peyton Hillis, injuries have been a huge problem.
It’s hard not to pity Romeo Crennel for all of the injuries that have befallen his squad in the last few years, but that’s how the National Football League goes. Last year, the Chiefs came within a game of winning their division without Charles, and the AFC West looks to be just as wide open this year. If Lilja can make the adjustment and Allen can adjust to the professional game quickly, the Chiefs offense should be just fine going forward.
