Commings wasn't wearing shoulder pads at the time of the injury, which he suffered while trying to defend a pass intended for tight end Tony Moeaki. The Chiefs can't go in full pads until their fourth practice, per the collective bargaining agreement.

Commings, a fifth-round pick in April's draft, was expected to serve in a reserve role with the Chiefs, who have Brandon Flowers, Dunta Robinson and Sean Smith locked into roles in the secondary.
