One of the Kansas City Chiefs‘ top defensive players could miss the next few weeks because of an injury.
Chiefs defensive lineman Frank Clark aggravated his hamstring during Tuesday’s practice. He will soon undergo and MRI, per NFL insider Tom Pelissero.
This is obviously a concerning update for both Clark and the Chiefs. He’s one of the NFL’s best defensive lineman and elevates Kansas City’s defense to another level. But there is some optimism here.
Per Pelissero, there is a belief Clark will be ready to go in time for the Chiefs’ Week 1 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The MRI results will likely dictate what Frank Clark’s upcoming path looks like. Let’s hope it’s nothing serious.
Clark had been dealing with a strained hamstring dating back to last week. He even missed a few practices. It looks like he’ll miss at least a few more over the next week or so.
The Chiefs have plenty of incentive to keep Clark on the sideline for as long as he needs. The regular season doesn’t get going for another month or so. If Kansas City is going to make another run to the AFC title, it needs Clark at his best and, more importantly, healthy.
Clark had 29 tackles, six sacks, eight tackles for loss and 15 quarterback hits during the 2020 season. If healthy, he should have another tremendous season in Kansas City later this year.
