NFL Injury Report: Chiefs (Week 11)

Dwayne Bowe injured his neck against the Cincinnati Bengals, and Branden Albert left with a back issue.

The Kansas City Chiefs lost starting receiver Dwayne Bowe to a neck injury and offensive lineman Branden Albert to a back injury during Sunday's 28-6 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, and the Associated Press' Dave Skretta reports that the status of each will be known on Wednesday.

Bowe hurt his neck while going up to catch a deep pass and falling hard in what first appeared to be a head injury. He went to the locker room and returned to the sidelined without a helmet. Terrance Copper took Bowe's place.

Albert was injured in the second half of the loss, and his injury appears to have been back spasms.

The hits continued on the Chiefs' offensive line. After Albert's injury, Kansas City had only one starting offensive lineman on the field for coach Romeo Crennel. Center Ryan Lilja was out of the Cincinnati game with a knee injury, right guard Jon Asamoah is recovering from thumb surgery and both of those absences have caused shifts at the other positions on the offensive line.
