Commings Returns To Practice

From the Truman Sports Complex

It’s been a tough rookie season for the Chiefs 2013 NFL Draft class. Among the 8 players selected, only one has made any major contribution to the team through 6 games to date: No. 1 selection RT Eric Fisher.

But one of the picks on the shelf has returned to practice and could find his way to the active roster. Fifth-round DB Sanders Commings practiced on Wednesday with the Chiefs, the first time he’s been able to practice since the very first days of training camp in St. Joseph.

Commings suffered a broken collarbone and healing time for that is normally 4 to 6 weeks. That took him right up through the start of the regular season. He was part of the original 53 roster and then was placed on the injured-reserve list designated for return on September 3rd.

That allowed 6-0, 223-pound product of the University of Georgia to return to practice after the sixth week of the season. He can be moved into the active roster after the season’s eighth game. That gives him a couple of weeks to show he can contribute. Commings played cornerback at Georgia, but was moved to safety with the Chiefs.
