We have our first depth chat with the Kansas City Chiefs new offensive line.
The Chiefs last week signed Russ Hochstein and Bryan Mattison so they now have reserve linemen after Rodney Hudson's season-ending injury. Ryan Lilja is listed as the starting center and Jeff Allen is the starting guard opposite Jon Asamoah.
This is really the only big depth chart shake up we've seen under Romeo Crennel (besides Orton > Palko) and even this was a result of injuries.
No other notable changes were made.
If Romeo does make any changes which, so far, looks like he probably won't, then I wonder if Jon Baldwin would ever be listed ahead of Steve Breaston. Baldwin's playing time is trending upward while Breaston's is headed down.
Check out the percentage of snaps each of them have been in so far this season. Breaston is on the left, Baldwin on the right.
Week 1: 50 / 32
Week 2: 55 / 52
Week 3: 50 / 63
Week 4: 19 / 75
Let's keep an eye on those snap counts moving forward.
