KC Chiefs offensive line: How confident are you in this group entering Week 1?

Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs have some injuries and other moving parts on their offensive line. The depth is being tested early. Entering Week 1, how confident are you in the Chiefs offensive line?

There appears to be a chance that KC Chiefs starting G Jon Asamoah will be unable to play in Sunday's Week 1 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Also injured is tackle Eric Fisher and backup tackle Donald Stephenson.

When will we know about Asamoah's status? On Friday, Andy Reid will have to declare him probable / questionable / doubtful / out.

"Sometimes, depending on the player, I've gone all the way up to the game where they haven't really practiced much at all and have still been able to play," Reid said, via quotes from the team, when asked about his evaluation of injured players on game day. "Every situation is a little different. We'll see how it goes. We have a lot of trust in Schwartz, so if he needs to go, he'll go. If Jon can go then he can."

How confident are you in the offensive line?

It sure looks like Asamoah is going to be out and Geoff Schwartz, veteran lineman signed in the offseason, will replace him. I talked up the Chiefs o-line depth earlier this offseason and already it's being tested. Would many agree that Asamoah is the most sure-thing on the Chiefs line? This injury sucks.

Meanwhile, Eric Fisher, the No. 1 pick, is not 100 percent healthy either.

Best case / worst case scenarios: Chiefs offensive line

"Well, I think he's feeling a little bit better health-wise," Reid said. "It took him a couple of days to get back and get the soreness out. I thought he made progress during the preseason. I thought he played very well against Pittsburgh there, which I consider a very good defense.  I'm looking forward to, as he does, to getting going here, playing in the regular season."

That's hand, finger and shoulder injuries for Fisher. Shoulder is the only one listed on the depth chart. Oh, spekaing of shoulders, Donald Stephenson has a shoulder injury, too. But like Fisher he did practice in full. We expect them to be healthy enough to get on the field.

So my question to you is this:

How confident are you in the offensive line right now? (10 being the most confident)

Please vote in our poll below. I'm wondering if anyone else is starting to feel a little anxious about the offensive line.
