The Kansas City Chiefs will be going into Week 2 a little bang up, as compared to Week 1 when they were completely healthy.
One of their most prized positions, not named quarterback, will not be playing against the Los Angeles Chargers on Thursday Night Football.
Harrison Butker, the Chiefs kicker, and one of the best kickers in the league rolled his ankle last week against the Cardinals, and won’t play Thursday. This puts the Chiefs in a tough and tricky spot.
They have a kicker on the practice squad in Matt Ammendola, who was recently on the New York Jets, but do they elevate him? Or, they could sign another veteran from the free agency pool.
Offensive guard Trey Smith is questionable for Thursday’s game with an ankle injury.
Trey Smith is questionable for tomorrow’s game. Harrison Butker is out.

As for the Chargers, they will be without receiver Keenan Allen and tight end Donald Parham. Cornerback J.C. Jackson is questionable.
