It is no secret to anyone that 2011 was an injury-plagued year for the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Chiefs lost players on both sides of the football who contributed immensely in their 2010 division title run. The Chiefs went from first to last place in the AFC West. However, their last place standing was only one game behind the three teams who tied for first with an 8-8 record, making the injury-plagued season hard to swallow when it was in the books.
This offseason, Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli brought in players who could come in and help the returners ease their way back into the field. Ultimately, it will help the players returning from injury stay on the field and perform at a higher level with a better group of players.
As the Chiefs look to rebound, who is in the running for the 2012 NFL Comeback Player of the Year award? Check out this slideshow and let us know which player is likely to compete for the award.
