KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Cornerback Kansas City Chiefs rookie Jarius Sneed broke his collarbone in Monday night’s game against the Baltimore Ravens, a source said.
Sneed, a Louisiana Tech fourth-round draft pick, was a pleasant surprise for the Chiefs. He started the first three games and is tied for the NFL advantage in interceptions with two.
His rapid development was a major factor in the Chiefs’ initial 3-0.
A regular cornerback, Bashaud Breeland, is serving an NFL ban for four games. The other, Charvarius Ward, broke his hand in the week 1 game and did not play in week 2.
Ward replaced Sneed after his injury to the Ravens and played with a heavily wrapped hand.
The nature of Sneed’s injury was first reported by the Kansas City Star.
