Chiefs rookie Baldwin injured in fight with teammate

The Chiefs’ first-round draft pick, WR Jonathan Baldwin, injured his hand/wrist in a fight with a teammate this week and is unlikely to play in Friday night’s preseason game against the Ravens, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.

Baldwin had discipline issues during his college days at Pittsburgh. He was labeled as a diva with a bad attitude heading into April’s draft, but the Chiefs’ deep need at receiver enticed them to select Baldwin with the 26th overall pick in the first round.

The rookie has met with doctors regarding the severity of his injury. It isn’t expected to sideline Baldwin into the regular season, but the lost time and this incident doesn’t bode well for him becoming a factor during the first half of the season.
