Cam Erving will start at guard for Chiefs vs. Texans

When I was writing this week about the Kansas City Chiefs right guard situation with Laurent Duvernay-Tardif out this week, I talked about Jordan Devey or Parker Ehinger as his possible replacements. One name I didn’t mention is Cam Erving.

So of course Erving is going to start tonight at guard as the Chiefs visit the Texans on Sunday Night Football. They made the announcement shortly before the game.

Erving came over from Cleveland in a trade and when that trade was made the Chiefs said they saw him as more of a swing tackle than an interior linemen so I didn’t consider him at guard.

He’s a former first round pick so if he can be a backup at tackle and guard he will increase his value for the Chiefs. Or this could be very bad and they never try it again.

LDT, the regular starter at right guard, is out this week and possibly for a few weeks with an injury.
