The Kansas City Chiefs have done a great job keeping up with the Buffalo Bills offense in a wildly entertaining Divisional Round matchup, but some injury news could make things a lot tougher going forward with the news that offensive lineman Joe Thuney is injured with a pectoral injury.

At first, the Chiefs designated Thuney as questionable to return.After the game, the team made it clear that further testing was needed. He will undergo an MRI on Monday to see how extensive the damage is and where he goes from here.

Thuney is an All-Pro left guard for the Chiefs and the best player along the team's offensive front. Thuney was named a first-team All-Pro by the Associated Press this year after making the second-team a year ago. He's also been a Pro Bowler in each season.

The Chiefs first landed Thuney as a prized free agent as part of a massive offensive line overhaul before the 2021 season. Together with center Creed Humphrey and right guard Trey Smith, the Chiefs interior offensive line is known as one of the NFL's very best.

Without Thuney, the Chiefs not only lose his excellent level of play but he's also a versatile performer who can take over at both left tackle and center. In his place, the Chiefs will lean on Nick Allegretti as the starting left guard.
