Chiefs rookie Dorsey out for week; MRI confirms knee sprain
RIVER FALLS, Wis. -- The Kansas City Chiefs say rookie defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey should miss about a week after spraining his left knee in practice during the weekend.
An MRI exam showed no additional damage, the Chiefs said Monday at training camp in River Falls, Wis.
Dorsey was the fifth overall pick in the draft. The former LSU star signed a $51 million, five-year deal last month. He was hurt when he collided with another lineman during practice.
Dorsey is considered vital to rebuilding the defensive line after the departure of Pro Bowl defensive end Jared Allen to Minnesota.
