Chiefs believe late-round medical gambles could pay off big

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs used a pair of late-round picks on players with a history of medical problems but undeniable upside. In the fourth round they took defensive end Joshua Kaindoh, whose career at Florida State was interrupted first by hamstring injuries and then a significant right leg injury in 2019. In the sixth the Chiefs took Tennessee offensive linemen Trey Smith, who had blood clots in his lungs that may have been a red flag for other teams.  If both can stay on the field, the Chiefs might have gotten the kind of steals that allow a winning team to stay on top.
