Moeaki Won’t Practice Until St. Joe

From the Truman Sports Complex

Tight end Tony Moeaki has been watching OTA sessions in the last two weeks as he rehabs from off-season surgery on his left knee.

And, head coach Andy Reid said Thursday that Moeaki would continue to watch the OTAs and the team’s 3-day mini-camp coming up in the next two weeks.

“I don’t forsee that,” Reid said when asked if Moeaki would practice in the next few weeks. “You’ll probably see him at training camp.”

Reid hesitated a bit when asked if Moeaki would be ready for the start of training camp at the end of July.

“We’ll see,” Reid said. “I’m thinking he will be, but we’ll see how things go. He’s working like crazy to get back.”

Injuries have slowed down Moeaki’s football career at both the University of Iowa and with the Chiefs. He played in 15 of 16 games last season after missing the entire 2011 season due a torn ACL in his left knee that required surgery. Moeaki admitted it wasn’t until the second half of the season that he felt close to being back to his previous level of physical health. He caught 33 passes for 453 yards and a touchdown.

After the ’12 season, he had another surgery on that same left knee and has been an observer for the entire off-season.

    He is just not available. The U-Iowa steroids has wrecked his body like many other hawkeyes. Time to cut him loose.
