Chiefs' line could be in shambles

The Kansas City Chiefs’ issues on the offensive line may continue Sunday at home against Denver, giving quarterback Brady Quinn another challenge in his second start.

Center Ryan Lilja (knee) and left tackle Branden Albert (back) did not practice Wednesday and guard Jon Asamoah (thumb) was limited. Asamoah and Lilja missed the Cincinnati game Sunday and Albert departed early. If the Chiefs are without those three lineman on Sunday, it could be a problem considering they face pass-rush stars Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil.

Meanwhile, top receiver Dwayne Bowe (neck/back) was limited Wednesday. He was hurt Sunday. Fellow starter Jon Baldwin (head/neck) was limited. He missed the Cincinnati game. Fellow receiving weapon, tight end Tony Moeaki, was limited with shoulder/back issues Wednesday.

For Denver, cornerback Champ Bailey did not practice, but it wasn't due to an injury. Receiver Demaryius Thomas was limited with a knee injury and defensive lineman Derek Wolfe was limited with a quadriceps injury.

Meanwhile, the Denver Post reports the Broncos worked out running back Jacob Hester on Wednesday as a possible replacement for Willis McGahee, who won’t return until the AFC Championship Game, assuming Denver gets that far. McGahee has a knee injury. Hester, a former San Diego fullback, would provided depth and likely be a short-yardage back if signed.
