The Chiefs watched right tackle Mike Remmers leave with an injury on Sunday.
Kansas City Chiefs right tackle Mike Remmers is questionable to return to the game after leaving with a back injury against the Miami Dolphins in Week 14. Remmers departed the game in the third quarter.
The Chiefs are already without their typical starting tackle in Mitchell Schwartz due to a back injury, and Schwartz is currently on the shelf for multiple weeks on injured reserve. Remmers is the sixth man, so to speak, for the Chiefs offensive line and initially plugged in as their starter at left guard once Kelechi Osemele was lost for the year in Week 4 due to torn tendons in both knees.
Remmers moved outside to right tackle for the Chiefs at midseason against the Buffalo Bills in Week 6 when Schwartz first left due to pack pain. He’s started every game opposite left tackle Eric Fisher ever since, and his injury will be a serious concern for the Chiefs if he’s unable to bounce back.
The Chiefs are up by multiple possessions over the Miami Dolphins at this point as they enjoy a 30-10 lead with only a minute remaining in the third quarter. They should be fine to leave South Florida with a win even if Remmers cannot return. However, if Remmers is lost for any length of time moving forward, especially with a tough game against the New Orleans Saints on the schedule coming up, it will be a major concern. Yasir Durant is likely going to be take reps outside for the Chiefs in his absence.
Remmers first joined the Chiefs on a one-year deal signed this past spring.
