Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid provided media members with three injury updates following the team’s 13-12 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 18.

“Wanya Morris banged his head and is in the concussion protocol,” started Reid. “Justyn Ross came out with a hamstring, and Jaylen Watson got kneed in the calf. I think, for the most part, we came out relatively healthy.”

When Morris left the game, the Chiefs moved Jawaan Taylor to left tackle and put Lucas Niang at right tackle. Creed Humphrey mixed in at guard.

“[Mike] Caliendo [and Humphrey], both those two were kind of rotating in there, and we had the three starters — the inside three there kind of rotated guard. We had the injury, Joe [Thuney] went outside (left tackle) for a little bit, did that. We had guys all over the place, but they all could play, that’s the way Andy [Heck] has trained the guys. They all know all the positions, jump in and go.”

Morris has been the Chiefs’ starter at left tackle since the original starter, Donovan Smith, suffered an injury in early December. His status will be worth monitoring as the Chiefs prepare for Wild Card weekend.
