KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WIBW) - Chiefs starting left guard Kelechi Osemele has torn multiple tendons in his knees.

After the Chiefs 40-32 loss against the Las Vegas Raiders, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid confirmed the guards injury.

Injuries to this degree likely means that Osemele will miss the remainder of the season.

The injury happened near the beginning of the game, the guard was running to block a man downfield and his knee gave out underneath him.

Osemele has started every game for the Chiefs so far this season. He signed a one-year deal with Kansas City in the off season.
