KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce left Monday afternoon’s practice with an undetermined injury.

An update on Kelce’s status, however, won’t arrive until Tuesday when coach Andy Reid addresses reporters.

Kelce walked off on his own power.

The Chiefs recently welcomed back Demetrius Harris, who missed organized team activities and training camp following foot surgery in early May, and have rookie James O’Shaughnessy, Richard Gordon and Ryan Taylor on the roster.

But losing Kelce for any amount of time would be a major blow to the Chiefs offense.

Kelce led the Chiefs in 2014 in receptions (67) and yards receiving (862) on 87 targets. His five touchdowns tied for the team lead with running back Jamaal Charles.

The third-year pro finished the 2013 season on injured reserve after undergoing microfracture knee surgery.
