4. Can the pass rush handle early hurdles?

The Chiefs were going to have to find some important replacements up front this offseason after watching Frank Clark, such a tremendous competitor in the team's biggest games, leave for the Denver Broncos. Add the, for now, loss of Carlos Dunlap and that's a serious veteran hole to fill. Given the loss of Jones to this contractual holdout and the six-game suspension looming over Charles Omenihu, the Chiefs look paper thin in the trenches on defense and that's putting it kindly.

George Karlaftis should be that much better with a year under his belt. Felix Anudike-Uzomah is another nice investment to make for the long term. However, both are too young to carry the position even if aided by Mike Danna, who has already missed several days of practice with an injury of his own this preseason.

What would help is for Jones to return ASAP and the Chiefs to use that money on Dunlap to bolster the position. But at this point, it looks like the Chiefs could be hurting up front when the Detroit Lions come to visit in Week 1.
