Jon Asamoah, Tony Moeaki lead KC Chiefs injury report after Steelers game

Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE

Before analyzing the results of the Kansas City Chiefs 26-20 OT victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, let's get the injury updates out of the way. Jon Asamoah and Tony Moeaki are the new names to keep an eye on.

It appears as if the Kansas City Chiefs have escaped serious injury once again. No knee or leg injuries were reported in Saturday's Chiefs-Steelers game from the KC side. Several notable players did not participate for mostly minor reasons. The biggest news from the game is that Jamaal Charles, who had a foot strain, did play so he appears healthy.

The most notable injury during the game came to Jon Asamoah, the Chiefs starting guard who went down with a calf strain early on. "We'll just see how he is in the morning," Reid said. That seems minor but we really have no idea. We'll talk to Reid later today to find out.

Tony Moeaki also went out during the game (I didn't even realize he did) with a stinger, according to Reid (via kcchiefs.com). That should be minor as well.

The following players did not play at all: Dexter McCluster (ill), Quintin Demps (Ill), Dunta Robinson (shoulder), Travis Kelce (knee), Sanders Commings (shoulder).

"[McCluster] actually went out for warm-ups with every intention of playing," Reid said, "but he just didn't feel well. I pulled the pads off him, that was my decision. He's a tough kid so if he's not feeling well something's wrong."

As for Demps, he had the flu this week so he was cramping up in his hamstring before the game.

Dunta "tried" to go this week, according to Reid, but couldn't. I take it as a good sign that he's at least trying to play. Honestly, I thought his AC sprain would be a bigger deal than what it has been.

Kelce was ruled out before the game with a knee bruise, which he suffered last week. He hasn't been practicing this week.

In good injury news, Donald Stephenson did play. He had a shoulder sprain like Robinson.

That's what we know right about the Chiefs injuries.
