Chiefs Injury Update: Dee Ford, Albert Wilson Leave Monday's Game Early

Head Coach Andy Reid provided an update on both players following the game

The Kansas City Chiefs lost a couple players to injuries midway through their 29-19 victory over the Denver Broncos on Monday night as linebacker Dee Ford (back) and wide receiver Albert Wilson (hamstring) didn't see the field in the second half.

Head Coach Andy Reid provided an update on both players following the game.

"Dee Ford's back tightened up on him," Reid said.  "Albert Wilson had his hamstring tighten up on him, so neither one of those two finished the game."

Center Mitch Morse, who missed the last five games with a foot injury, started on Monday night and played the entirety of the game.

"The guys did such a tremendous job while I was out, and it was seamless coming back in," Morse said. "They welcomed me in there. We definitely have some things to improve on this week, but it was a blast being out there."

Defensive back Steven Nelson also returned to the field, making his season debut after spending the first half of the season on injured reserve with a core muscle injury.

Nelson recorded four tackles (2.0 solo) and a pass defensed in the game. He was targeted quite a bit throughout the contest but didn't allow a single catch.

"It was emotional for me, being out there and doing what I like to do," Nelson said. "Being back out there was everything."
