Report: Chiefs CB Fuller has fractured thumb




Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Kendall Fuller fractured his thumb during Sunday's loss to the Houston Texans, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Tuesday.

Fuller is seeking additional medical opinions and it's not clear if he will be available for Thursday night's game against the Denver Broncos.

Fuller, 24, has a recent history of quick recoveries. He missed only one game last season following wrist surgery.

Fuller has 31 tackles and one sack in six games (four starts) this season. He tallied 82 tackles and two interceptions in 15 starts in his first season with the Chiefs in 2018.

Washington's third-round pick in 2016, Fuller appeared in 29 games (12 starts) with the Redskins from 2016-17 and registered 94 tackles and four picks.

Kansas City (4-2) has dropped two straight heading into Thursday's game at Denver (2-4).
