Chiefs vs. Broncos: Ben Grubbs still isn't practicing, Mike DeVito returns

The Kansas City Chiefs saw the return of DE Mike DeVito and LB Ramik Wilson to practice on Monday, the Chiefs first of the week in preparation for the Denver Broncos. That's the good news.

The bad news is that G Ben Grubbs, who missed the Chiefs Week 8 game in London, remains out with a neck injury.

"We're just taking Grubbs day by day here, we'll just see," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said on Monday. "He's making progress, we'll just see where he goes here this week."

Reid was asked if Grubbs' injury is season-ending.

"I think what they'll do is they'll go back in and re-MRI it here and just make sure," Reid said, "or see where it's at. If it comes down to he can play, make sure he's ok to play, if not then we'll see how much longer it will take."

If Grubbs can't go, the Chiefs would likely end up with the same offensive line as they did in London when he was also out. That line saw Jeff Allen line up at LG, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif at RG and Jah Reid at RT. Allen is becoming a valuable part of the team because the Chiefs didn't really lose anything when he replaced Grubbs. If anything, he was an upgrade in that game.

As for other injuries, Tamba Hali has been on the injury report with a knee injury. Reid said that the Chiefs will pace him in practice and give him time off when needed. But it sounds like it's something they will just manage during the week so that he can play on Sundays.
