Sanders Commings breaks ankle at Chiefs camp

This time around, the jaw-dropping lateral ability of All-Pro running back Jamaal Charles appears to have cost the Kansas City Chiefs one of their own.

Coach Andy Reid told reporters on Thursday that safety Sanders Commings has undergone surgery to repair the broken ankle he suffered during Wednesday's practice, according to ESPN.com's Adam Teicher.

Teicher tweeted Wednesday that Charles put an "open field move" on Commings that left the second-year safety stopped in his tracks. An injured Commings then had to be helped off the field.

It's a tough loss for Kansas City's defense, which also saw Pro Bowl safety Eric Berry carted off the field Thursday with an ankle injury. Berry's injury doesn't appear to be serious, but the loss of Commings leaves the Chiefs thin at the back of their defense.
