The Kansas City Chiefs lost their second straight game of the season on Sunday, when they gave up a late touchdown to the division rival San Diego Chargers.

It was an ugly loss for Kansas City, but it was even worse thanks to injuries to two of the team’s top defenders.

Pass rushing specialist Justin Houston left the game and was unable to return, along with fellow outside linebacker Tamba Hali. Unfortunately for Hali, his injury seems to be much worse.

After the game, Hali was spotted in the locker room on crutches and unable to put any weight on his leg.

The severity and diagnosis for his injury have not been announced, but it’s never a good sign when you can’t put weight on the injury.

Kansas City is hoping to rebound next week with a win over the Denver Broncos, who they lost to just one week ago, but it won’t be easy if they won’t have their top pass rushers getting after Peyton Manning.

    Sorry to see anyone get injured, but this really isn’t that big of a loss. We all knew they never stood a chance of winning against Denver next week anyway.

    Ice up, boys.

    Things are about to get even worse.
