Chiefs injury report: Jon Baldwin, Jon Asamoah still questionable for Broncos game

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

The Chiefs continue to deal with injuries on both sides of the ball, including a couple places along the offensive line.

The Kansas City Chiefs are hurting along the offensive line in a major way heading into their week facing the solid Denver pass rush led by Elvis Dumervil and Von Miller. As if the season can get any worse, now they face their biggest rival at home with a patchwork front line.

Specifically, the Chiefs are dealing with injuries at left tackle, center and right guard. Eric Winston switched sides last Sunday and Donald Stephenson stepped in. This week, the team hopes to get Branden Albert, Ryan Lilja and Jon Asamoah back in action.

Romeo Crennel gave a rundown on the Chiefs injury report from Arrowhead on Monday and it's a longer list that includes two receivers as well.

"On the injury front, Jon Baldwin with his head, he's better, he's in meetings today," said Crennel on Monday. "He's going to be evaluated later on to see whether he can do anything tomorrow, so we'll have to wait to see what's going to happen there. [Jon] Asamoah with his thumb, it's in a cast. He'll be fitted for a cast to see if he can practice, and we'll have to wait to see whether he'll be able to do anything with it or not.

"[Ryan] Lilja with his knee, he saw the doctor, the doctors treated it and Wednesday, we'll see what he can get done with his knee. [Dwayne] Bowe with his neck, he's sore, shoulders and neck, so we'll have to see what he can do as well, if that will loosen up for him. If it loosens up, then we'll get him to do something. Branden Albert with his back, he's got back spasms, we're treating those and we'll see what happens there."

The Chiefs will need a roster near full strength to have any hope of defeating Peyton Manning and the Broncos.
