Chiefs injury update: Jeff Allen tweaked his ankle, Marcus Peters had cramps

The injury to Marcus Peters at the end of the Kansas City Chiefs victory over the Oakland Raiders isn't a big deal. Andy Reid told the media after the game that Peters just had cramps. There was a video of Peters throwing up earlier in the game so I'm guessing that's where some of the dehydration came from to cause the cramps.

Meanwhile, Jeff Allen played just seven snaps before he had to come out of the game. Reid said that he tweaked his ankle in the game and wasn't able to finish. Allen was questionable on the injury report entering the game but it was clear early on that he couldn't move the way he wanted to. Donald Stephenson replaced him at left guard. Interesting move because Stephenson has usually played tackle.

Mike DeVito suffered a concussion in the game and now enters the concussion protocol. The Chiefs have been keeping some of their concussed players out for multiple weeks so we'll have to wait and see how this one does.

As for Allen Bailey, who was questionable but did not play, Reid said that he tried to go. "He just couldn't push off the way he needed to be able to so we ended up sitting him down at the last minute," Reid said. Dontari Poe played 72 of 79 snaps in his absence while Howard played 70 snaps.
