Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones is expected to “miss some time” due to a groin strain, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Rapoport added that Jones is considered “week to week,” which probably means he will — at the very least — be out for the Chiefs’ upcoming game with the Houston Texans. Jones was immediately ruled out of the Chiefs’ game against the Indianapolis Colts after suffering the injury.

Our in-house injury expert, Aaron Borgmann, tried to make sense of the news from Rapoport on Twitter:

The Chiefs play the Texans, Broncos, Packers and Vikings over the next four weeks.

The 25-year-old Jones, who led the Chiefs with 15.5 sacks last season, is in the final year of his rookie contract. He has arguably been the Chiefs’ best defensive player in 2019, so this is a tough blow, especially coming off the first loss of the season.
