Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston and safety Eric Murray have been ruled out for the remainder of the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Chiefs announced on their official Twitter account.

Houston reportedly threw his helmet down after suffering an injury to his hamstring in the first half. Murray has what the Chiefs are calling a “lower leg injury.”

With Murray and Watts not able to go, the Chiefs have just two healthy safeties available—Ron Parker and Jordan Lucas, who usually plays only special teams.
