The Kansas City Chiefs have placed rookie wide receiver Justyn Ross on injured reserve, which means he will miss the entire 2022 season. Undrafted free agent Ross just endured another foot surgery, according to Andy Reid, who told reporters on Friday that he signed out of Clemson as an undrafted free agency. Following foot surgery in November of his junior year, Ross’ time at Clemson came to an end early.
While at Auburn, Ross tallied 46 receptions for 514 yards and three touchdowns. A congenital fusion in his spine, which necessitated surgery, kept him out of the lineup for the entire 2020 season.
According to Dane Brugler of The Athletic, he was the 148th best prospect in the 2022 NFL Draft. A congenital fusion problem in Ross’ spine and neck necessitated surgery that he had to miss the entire 2020 campaign. Afterward, he missed the remaining three games of the year due to a foot injury he had already experienced.

Ross had surgery to treat a foot injury he sustained while playing for Clemson in November. A second surgery was required to clean up the injury, which led to this new setback. In his freshman year, Ross tallied 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns on 46 receptions, making him look like the next big thing. Before the sad news about his congenital spinal issue came out, he had a bit of a sophomore slump.
After a two-year absence in 2021, the Tigers’ leading receiver returned with 524 receiving yards on 47 receptions. Ross was passed over in the draft because of his poor performance and history of injuries. A season-ending injury once brought him back. In order to break through in 2023, he’ll have to do it all over again.
Ross has 46 receptions for 1,000 yards and nine touchdowns as a rookie at Clemson in 2018. He hauled in six passes for 153 yards and a score in the 2019 College Football Playoff National Championship game against Alabama. Ross had 865 receiving yards on 66 grabs and eight touchdowns as a sophomore in 2019.
Ross was forced to miss the whole 2020 season after undergoing surgery to correct a congenital fusion of his neck and spine. After his surgery, he was given a medical redshirt. Ross collected 524 receiving yards on 47 receptions and three touchdowns in 10 games as a redshirt junior in 2021.
Phenix City, Alabama’s Central High School is where Ross went to high school. Thirteen touchdowns and 37 receptions in his final year of high school. Four-star recruit Ross was ranked 45th nationally as a wide receiver and 7th overall in the nation, garnering offers from multiple Division I schools, including Alabama, Clemson, Auburn, and Duke.
