Anthony Hitchens injures hand in first quarter of Chiefs-Raiders

NFL: AFC Championship-Tennessee Titans at Kansas City Chiefs Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Another Kansas City Chiefs player has been injured during their game against the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday afternoon.

On a third-and-1 play just before the end of the first quarter, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr floated a pass under pressure that was intercepted by newly-returned Chiefs cornerback Bashaud Breeland. But Chiefs linebacker Anthony Hitchens suffered what was reported as a hand injury on the play.

The Chiefs listed his return to the game as questionable. Linebacker Ben Niemann stepped in the second quarter, but Hitchens returned to the field after halftime.
