The only thing that mattered in Week 18 for the Chiefs was escaping the game healthy. Unfortunately, Kansas City suffered two major offensive line injuries in the first half against the Chargers.
Rookie LT Wanya Morris went to the locker room with a head injury and RT Jawaan Taylor replaced him on the left side. Taylor quickly went down with an injury of his own, and that means three Chiefs linemen are now hurt with Donovan Smith having missed the last month.
We don't know the severity of these injuries, but it's certainly not ideal.
Chiefs Injury News: Wanya Morris and Jawaan Taylor Both Hurt
Morris started in place of the injured Donovan Smith as he has the last several weeks. Taylor returned from halftime with his helmet and looks okay, though that's now three offensive line injuries right before a difficult playoff run.
Kansas City's offense hasn't been up to its usual standard even when healthy, so potentially losing three linemen would be a huge blow.
I'd guess both players are done for this game. We'll update this story once we have more information, though for now, let's just hope nobody else winds up hurt. Wanya Morris has officially been ruled out due to his head injury but we don't have an update on Taylor's status yet.
Looks like it was a wise move to rest Travis Kelce, after all.
UPDATE: Jawaan Taylor Returns to Game
While Morris is out with a concussion, Jawaan Taylor returned to the game and appears alright. However, WR Justyn Ross was ruled out with a hamstring injury.
