Travis Kelce Admits Injuries Have Made Him Consider Retirement “More Than Anyone Could Ever Imagine”

Despite still being able to play at an elite level, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce admits that the pain and discomfort of injuries has him seriously considering retirement.

While speaking with J.R. Moehringer for the Wall Street Journal, Chiefs star Travis Kelce shared that he ponders stepping away from the gridiron for good.

“More than anyone could ever imagine,” said Kelce.

“That’s the only thing I’ve never really been open about,” Kelce added. “The discomfort. The pain. The lingering injuries—the 10 surgeries I’ve had that I still feel every single surgery to this day.”

Kelce, 34, owns a bunch of NFL records, including the most receiving yards in a season by a tight end (1,416). Whenever he decides to hang it up, there’s a spot in Canton at the Pro Football Hall of Fame waiting for him.
