Chiefs DE Emmanuel Ogbah Undergoing Season-Ending Surgery For Torn Pectoral



Adam Schefter reports that Chiefs DE Emmanuel Ogbah is undergoing season-ending surgery this week for a torn pectoral muscle he suffered during Sunday’s loss at Tennessee.

The good news for Ogbah is that he should be fully recovered in time for the start of free agency next year. 

You can expect the Chiefs to place Ogbah on injured reserve and sign someone to their roster in the coming days. 

Chiefs HC Andy Reid announced after Sunday’s game that DE Emmanuel Ogbah suffered a torn pectoral. 

Given where we are in the year, it’s possible that this is a season-ending injury for Ogbah, but the Chiefs will have him undergo further testing to determine the severity of the injury. 

Ogbah, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Browns back in 2016. Cleveland traded Ogbah to the Chiefs pack in April in exchange for S Eric Murray.

Ogbah is in the final year of his four-year, $6.6 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $1,351,314 for the 2019 season. He will be an unrestricted free agent in 2020.

Entering today’s game, Ogbah had appeared in nine games for the Chiefs and recorded 29 tackles, 4.5 sacks, a forced fumble and three pass defenses.

We’ll have more regarding Ogbah as the news is available.
