Nick Bolton Needs wrist surgery, out two months

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-23 10:25:42

Bolton will require surgery after suffering a dislocated wrist in Sunday's 31-17 win over the Chargers and is expected to miss roughly two months, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Bolton tallied a season-high nine tackles over 45 defensive snaps before departing late in the second half of Sunday's win with the wrist injury. An MRI on Monday revealed that he dislocated the wrist, and with surgery on tap, the Chiefs will now be without the star linebacker at least until around early December. Drue Tranquill and Leo Chenal are both likely to benefit from upticks in snaps alongside fellow linebacker Willie Gay while Bolton is sidelined. Bolton had already missed three games earlier this season due to an ankle injury.
