ST. JOSEPH, Mo. — Kansas City Chiefs safety Sanders Commings, a former Westside High School and University of Georgia standout, fractured his left collarbone in his first practice of training camp when he landed on it while trying to defend a pass.

He jumped to defend tight end Tony Moeaki and landed hard on one of the practice fields at Missouri Western State Uni-versity on Tuesday. Commings immediately walked off the field and was taken for X-rays that revealed the break.

Commings wasn’t wearing shoulder pads because players are barred from wearing them for the first three practices under terms of the most recent collective bargaining agreement.

The Chiefs hadn’t yet scheduled surgery Tuesday night, and a team spokesman said it wasn’t known how long Commings will be out. He was expected to provide depth in a secondary that underwent a massive overhaul.

BUCCANEERS: Signed running back Peyton Hillis to a one-year contract.

Hillis is a sixth-year pro who has played for Cleveland and Kansas City.

BILLS: Released defensive end Mark Anderson, just one season after signing him to a four-year, $21 million contract.

COLTS: Running back Ahmad Bradshaw has been put on the physically unable to perform list.
