NFL Injury Report: Chiefs lose Dexter McCluster

There were already injury problems for the Kansas City Chiefs going into their game against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, and they only got worse as the Chiefs fell 17-9.

The offensive line was banged up prior to the game, with left tackle Branden Albert out with a back injury and a few other linemen carrying knocks of various sorts. They suffered another injury on the offensive side of the ball during the loss to Denver when Dexter McCluster was removed from the game.

McCluster had been playing well for the Chiefs through the first half, but he left with what was announced as a head and neck injury at the start of the second half and did not return to the game.

Safety Kendrick Lewis was also removed from the game due to a shoulder injury that has been bugging him since he originally injured it against the Rams during a preseason game.
