Kansas City Chiefs Wide Receiver Undergoes Groin Surgery

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Kansas City Chiefs' wide receiver Mecole Hardman underwent groin surgery in Philadelphia on Tuesday and is expected to miss eight weeks.

Hardman finished the year on injured reserve with a core muscle designation that kept him out from Week 10 to the AFC Championship. He returned from his lingering groin injury during the AFC Championship Game, but he subsequently aggravated the issue and was ultimately sidelined for Kansas City's win over the Eagles in Super Bowl LVII.

The pending free agent was limited to eight regular-season games with the Chiefs in 2022, in which he secured 25 of 34 targets for yards and four touchdowns. Hardman also had four carries for 31 yards and two scores and contributed in the return game.

Hardman should be ready for OTAs, wherever that happens to be for him, and he could draw real interest from other teams in a thin wideout market.
