We were so excited about the performance of the Kansas City Chiefs offensive line last week and now word comes down that one of them won't play. Per the Chiefs, G Ben Grubbs has been ruled OUT of Sunday's game, along with DE Mike DeVito and LB Ramik Wilson.

Grubbs was reported to have a sore neck after last week's game. This is concerning for the Chiefs because guard has not been a strength this season. I'm not sure who will take over for Grubbs because he has played every game for the Chiefs. Zach Fulton started on the right side before Laurent Duvernay-Tardif. Maybe Jeff Allen and put Donald Stephenson at right tackle? Zach Fulton? I'm not sure.

Meanwhile, the Chiefs can handle DeVito's absence with Jaye Howard's emergence. And Josh Mauga can handle inside linebacker for Wilson.

So who should start at left guard? If we are to believe this stat, it won't be a big downgrade (I believe it will be a big downgrade).
