(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – Justyn Ross, the wide receiver for the Kansas City Chiefs, was arrested on Monday. According to the arrest record, Ross had been taken into custody at around 2:50 p.m. and was booked at around 4:30 p.m. on felony damage charges. In Kansas, criminal damage is considered a felony when it exceeds $25,000.
Ross has been playing for the Chiefs for over a year, but this year was the first time he got game action. Last season, the wide receiver was on injured reserve after needing to undergo cervical fusion surgery. This was also the reason why the 23-year-old player had gone undrafted.
Ross had to undergo treatment after being diagnosed with Klippel-Feil syndrome, which means that two of the vertebrae in his neck were fused. This was discovered after the player expressed a feeling of numbness in both hands following a practice session. He underwent surgery in 2020, and it was widely expected that he would not be able to play football again. However, after a month of rehab, he returned to the game in 2021.
However, after playing another 10 games, he ended up fracturing his foot, which once again led to his needing rehab. Following the rehab period, Ross was only cleared by four NFL teams to play. The Chiefs were one of the four teams, and they ended up signing him last year as an undrafted free agent. He was then moved to the season-ending IR right before the training camp period in 2022.
