KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WDAF) — The Kansas City Chiefs will be without starting rookie cornerback Trent McDuffie when they take the field against the Los Angeles Chargers on Thursday Night Football.
The first-round pick suffered a hamstring injury in the Chiefs’ win over the Arizona Cardinals.
McDuffie was having a solid performance before exiting the game.
He played 21 snaps and was not targeted once as his name was barely called throughout the afternoon, which is usually always a good sign for a defensive back.
Rookie cornerback Jaylen Watson is the most likely candidate to fill in for McDuffie during his absence.
