Here is the Kansas City Chiefs starting offensive line for Week 1 preseason vs. Arizona Cardinals

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

We have an early leader in the Kansas City Chiefs offensive line battle. The Chiefs have played with two groups of first team offensive linemen this offseason and Andy Reid just confirmed this group would be starting in Saturday's preseason opener against the Arizona Cardinals:

LT Eric Fisher, LG Ben Grubbs, C Mitch Morse, RG Zach Fulton, RT Jeff Allen

The previous o-line the team worked with was LT Eric Fisher, LG Ben Grubbs, C Eric Kush, RG Jeff Allen and RT Donald Stephenson. The Chiefs worked with that offensive line throughout OTAs and the first week of camp before making the switch.

The surprise with the Morse-Fulton-Allen line is that Stephenson isn't included. He was one of the Chiefs best offensive linemen back in 2013 but that was, obviously, nearly two years ago. He hardly played at all last season but I still thought he merited a spot on the first team line.

Jeff Allen previously played guard but the Chiefs experimented with him at tackle during the preseason last year before his injury.

Fisher and Grubbs are the constants here. They have consistently stayed at those two spots throughout the offseason. Expect them to be locked into those positions, barring injury.

This is how you responded when we asked last week about these two offensive lines:
