Chiefs wide receiver Dexter McCluster has left Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos to be evaluated for a head and neck injury.
It was unclear when McCluster was hurt, but the injury was announced at the beginning of the second half. McCluster had been active over the first 30 minutes, running twice for 23 yards and catching a game-high four passes for 21 yards.
The Chiefs said his return was questionable.
Kansas City chose to go thin at wide receiver against the Broncos. Steve Breaston and Devon Wylie, the best two options to replace McCluster in the slot, were both inactive.

Kansas City Chiefs running back/wide receiver Dexter McCluster delivered a Thanksgiving meal to an elderly fan and was given an earful for the Chiefs’ woes this season.
“Y’all better start winning some games,” Ms. Louise said. “I’ve been praying, but y’all got to work a little bit harder.”

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Four times on Sunday the Chiefs were in Denver territory facing short yardage on fourth down.
Four times the Chiefs and coach Romeo Crennel opted to either kick a field goal or punt.
Not exactly the hey-we-got-nothing-to-lose approach you might expect from a team that was 1-9 and riding a seven-game losing streak coming into the game.
But Crennel defended his...
After yesterday’s loss to the Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles couldn’t help but ask for Peyton Manning’s autograph after the game.
Some people might have a problem with Charles asking Manning for his autograph, but I don’t. I’d probably do the same thing. It’s a sign of respect for one of the NFL’s all-time greats.

It's Week 12 and the Kansas City Chiefs already have nothing to lose.
They've dropped eight straight games to be officially eliminated from playoff contention. They lead the NFL in turnovers, haven't scored a touchdown in more than 11 quarters and still have just one lonely win during one of the worst seasons in franchise history.
Time to throw caution to the wind,...

Albert is inactive after sustaining a back injury in last week's loss to Cincinnati. Rookie Donald Stephenson starts in his place.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. There was a time, much earlier in this lost Chiefs season, when a tightly contested, narrow loss at the hands of Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos would have been inspiring.
Not any more. Not really.
The Chiefs hung around with Manning and the Broncos most of Sunday afternoon, playing ultra-conservative and mistake free, but ultimately fell, 17-9. The loss...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. The nicest thing you could say was that it was a chew toy of a tilt: A little pushing, a little pulling, and a lot of slobber.
After releasing his final pass of the first half, a 7-yard touchdown toss to tight end Jacob Tamme, Peyton Manning wound up getting slammed to the ground by Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Tyson Jackson. Manning's bell got rung to...
Kansas City wideout Dwayne Bowe, who sat out the entire second half Sunday against Cincinnati with neck and back problems, is active for the game against Denver.Fantasy Spin:That's the good news. The bad news is that Brady Quinn is his starting quarterback and he'll be covered by the talented Champ Bailey.
Kansas City wideout Dwayne Bowe saw 12 targets Sunday but had just four receptions for 41 yards.Fantasy Spin:Bowe had to catch passes from Brady Quinn while watching Peyton Manning sling the ball to Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker. How cruel. He should be parked on fantasy benches.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- It was not one of those performances that will be given a corner in the Pro Football Hall of Fame for documentation. On Sunday, the Denver Broncos couldn't care less, as they carved out a gritty 17-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. The winning effort was the sixth straight victory for the Broncos, who are 8-3 and maintain at least...
