The Chiefs could be without 75 percent of their starting offensive line on Sunday. Left tackle Branden Albert is "doubtful" with a back injury and guard Jon Asamoah (thumb) and center Ryan Lilja (knee) are "questionable". The Chiefs should get wide receivers Dwayne Bowe (neck/back) and Jon Baldwin (head/neck) back for the Broncos game. Source: Yahoo! Sports ...

The Kansas City Chiefs will be without startring guard Jon Asamoah this weekend. Romeo Crennel made the announcement at his Thursday press conference.
Asamoah played every snap last Monday against the Pittsburgh Steelers but popped up on Wednesday's injury report. Crennel said he had surgery and that he would be out this week, but he could return next week.

Chiefs offensive lineman Jon Asamoah will miss Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals after surgery on one of his thumbs.
Wide receiver Jon Baldwin has not been cleared following a head injury sustained in last week's game against Pittsburgh and is unlikely to be available. Tight end Jake O'Connell is also expected to miss the game with an ankle injury.
It's still McClain's TD Replays showed that Le'Ron McClain fumbled before reaching the end zone in Sunday's game at Oakland. Guard Jon Asamoah alertly fell on the ball in the end zone, so the Chiefs would have received the touchdown anyway.
Last year, the rookie stood and watched as his offensive line teammates were dominated and humbled. There wasn't much else Jon Asamoah could do, except maybe learn. This was how the Oakland Raiders play. These were the two physical, draining losses that Asamoah, and the Chiefs, must learn from -- and avoid repeating.
One unit hurt the most by the NFL's labor dispute might have been the Chiefs' offensive line. Guard Ryan Lilja shifted from the right side to left guard, replacing Brian Waters, and Jon Asamoah (above), a second-year player from Illinois, slid into the starting lineup at left guard this season.
