Chiefs Worked Out An Offensive Lineman This Week

The Kansas City Chiefs worked out veteran guard Chester Pitts this week, Adam Caplan reports. This is interesting news because the Chiefs offensive line has been undergoing some changes recently.

First, G Ryan Lilja missed last week's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a head injury, which lead to Rodney Hudson starting his first game.

And then on Tuesday, the Chiefs released OT Jared Gaither and signed OT David Mims from the practice squad. Gaither is a big name (and a big dude) but he hardly played for the Chiefs so (barring injury) this move didn't really mean that much as far as actual playing time is concerned.

Also this week, according to Caplan, the Chiefs worked out Pitts, who started every game in his first seven seasons after the Texans made him a 2002 draft pick. He's worked out for the Washington Redskins recently.

Hmm...what should we make of this? Does it tell us anything about Lilja's status? With him out and Hudson playing, the Chiefs had zero depth on the interior offensive line. We should know more about Lilja once today's practice report is released.
