The Kansas City Chiefs tight end recently underwent ankle surgery, sources told NFL Network's Mike Garafolo and NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport on Saturday. The procedure was considered a "cleanup."
Kelce is expected to return for the start of training camp, but will miss some, if not all, of Kansas City's spring program.
The tight end didn't miss a single game in 2018, en route to a career-high 103 catches, 1,336 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns. Kelce did not show up on the injury report all year.
