UPDATE (6:45 p.m.): NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport says LDT is likely headed for injured reserve

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid confirmed that the team’s starting right guard, Laurent Durvernay-Tardif, suffered a fractured fibula, in the Chiefs’ 30-14 win against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

“[It’s] a non-weight bearing bone that is going to take a little bit of time, but not too long,” Reid said. “He won’t be done for the year, which is a positive.”

Here is a quick breakdown from our in-house injury expert Aaron Borgmann:

Jordan Devey entered the game at right guard in place of Duvernay-Tardif, but I wouldn’t necessarily rule out Andrew Wylie for the position moving forward.

We should get more clarity this week on the Chiefs’ next man up at right guard when Reid holds his usual press conference on Monday.
