A few injury updates for the Kansas City Chiefs before the Denver Broncos game, and they're not such good news. The Chiefs announced that rookie TE James O'Shaughnessy has a fractured foot and is out for the Broncos game. Meanwhile, G Ben Grubbs and DE Allen Bailey are both likely out with injuries. (Update: They have all officially been ruled out)
Bailey, who has a calf injury, has had a really good season along the defensive line so it's disappointing to see that he will likely be out of this game. The KC Star's Terez Paylor quoted Andy Reid as saying: "I would tell you he's leaning more toward not playing." The Chiefs are getting Mike DeVito back so that helps but losing Bailey simply hurts.
Grubbs will likely be replaced by Jeff Allen again if he is out. Allen did a nice job there in the Lions game when Grubbs was out with a neck injury. If Allen is at guard, I am guessing that leaves Jah Reid (or Donald Stephenson) at right tackle.
It's too bad about O'Shaughnessy's injury. He was out last week with TE Brian Parker replacing him but I still thought O'Shaughnessy was having a good season as the Chiefs second and sometimes third tight end. We'll see how long this will keep him out, whether it's the season or not. The Chiefs like Parker because he's a better blocker than O'Shaughnessy is at this point.
