The Kansas City Chiefs will be without starting right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif for the rest of the game after a knee injury in the first quarter.

It didn’t take long for the Kansas City Chiefs to experience even more setbacks along the offensive line after losing starting right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif to a knee injury in the first quarter on Monday night. Unfortunately for the Chiefs, LDT ended up unable to put weight on his knee and it looks like it could even be a significant injury beyond just this week. For now, however, it means the Chiefs will be without all three interior starters along the offensive front for the rest of the game.

The Chiefs starting left guard, Parker Ehinger, has been out all season as he continues to rehab his way back from a torn ACL. He was inactive for this game although he did start to practice this week for the first time. The Chiefs lost starting center Mitch Morse two weeks into the season with a foot sprain. He’s currently inactive for this game and was expected to miss a few weeks, so he’s likely out another week as well.

With the loss of Duvernay-Tardif, the Chiefs will turn to Jordan Devey, a versatile backup veteran, to take his place, working with Zach Fulton at center and Bryan Witzmann at left guard as backups forced into starting roles. The Chiefs lone backup at this point is Cameron Erving.
