Awaiting news on Kansas City Chiefs offensive line plans

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Andy Reid wasn't sure on Sunday what he would be doing with his offensive line this week before their second preseason game. Perhaps that's because two players -- Jeff Allen (MCL sprain) and Eric Kush (shoulder bruise) -- left Saturday's game with injuries.

"You know what I'm going to do, I'm kind of going to reserve that answer," Reid said on Sunday when asked about the plan for the offensive line this week in practice (via quotes from the Chiefs).

"I'm going to meet with the coaches here after we are done, the offensives coaches, we're going to go back over the tape and I'm going to listen to their opinion on it. We've all had a chance individually to look at it, so I'm just curious to see what, in that case, [offensive line coaches] Andy Heck and Eugene Chung have to say about it, and then we will go from there. We're going to play and try and find that combination of five best guys, whether it's the guys that are in there now, or injuries or whatever -- we're sticking with that."

I'm no doctor but it seems like there would be a chance that Allen misses Friday's game against Seattle with his MCL sprain. Donald Stephenson likely takes his spot. We will have a better idea of his status and the status of others later this morning when the Chiefs return to St. Joe for training camp practice.
