KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City Chiefs rookie cornerback L’Jarius Sneed broke his collarbone during Monday night’s game against the Baltimore Ravens, coach Andy Reid announced Wednesday.

Asked for a timeline on Sneed’s recovery, Reid said, “We’ll see how that works as far as time away.”

Sneed, a fourth-round draft pick from Louisiana Tech, has been a pleasant surprise for the Chiefs. He started the first three games and is tied for the NFL lead in interceptions with two.

His rapid development has been an important factor in the Chiefs’ 3-0 start.

One starting cornerback, Bashaud Breeland, is serving a four-game NFL suspension. The other, Charvarius Ward, fractured his hand during the Week 1 game and did not play in Week 2.

Ward replaced Sneed after the injury against the Ravens and played with his hand heavily wrapped.

The nature of Sneed’s injury was first reported by the Kansas City Star.
