KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Chiefs offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz is undergoing surgery on Wednesday, Feb. 24.
The all-pro right tackle has been dealing with a back injury since October, which caused him to miss the second half of the season and the playoffs.
“I was hoping to recover enough to get back for playoffs/Super Bowl but that didn’t happen,” Schwartz wrote on Twitter. “It’s time to address the issue.”
Schwartz added that the recovery process isn’t long and he’s looking forward to the upcoming season.
