Defensive end Tamba Hali was carted to the locker room in the first quarter after being helped off the field with an ankle injury. Justin Houston left in the second quarter with an elbow injury. Both were ruled out for the game after halftime, and coach Andy Reid said postgame the two defenders will undergo MRI exams Monday.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday night, via two sources informed of the injury, that Houston's elbow popped out and went back in on the field. X-Rays for Houston were negative, per Rapoport, and Monday's exam will be to see if there is more ligament damage.
Hali and Houston have formed the best pass-rushing duo in the NFL this season. It's hard to imagine this Chiefs team surviving for long if they remain out the lineup.
Here are some other injuries we're monitoring from Week 12:
- Baltimore defensive lineman Chris Canty suffered a shoulder injury. He was taken to the locker room for further examination.
