The Kansas City Chiefs will be without three players when they travel to New York this weekend to play the Jets. The Chiefs announced that LB Dee Ford, S Eric Murray and RB Charcandrick West will not play against the Jets.

The Chiefs have been without Ford for a few weeks now so we know what to expect without him, a combination of Frank Zombo and Tamba Hali coming from the outside opposite Justin Houston.
The loss of West, who missed practice this week because of personal reasons, is a tough one because the Chiefs only have Akeem Hunt behind him on the depth chart (get your CJ Spiller comments ready). West is a pretty good pass blocker and played plenty of snaps (16 last week) so that’ll be one to watch this weekend.
The loss of Murray means yet another hit to the secondary. The Chiefs are already down Eric Berry so we’ll see how they handle this against the Jets. I’m guessing it means more time for Steven Terrell (or another cornerback).
There are other players on the injury report but they’ve been practicing this week.
