The Kansas City Chiefs were already put behind more this week against the Los Angeles Chargers than they were in Week 2.

Injuries haven’t really been an issue for Kansas City this season, but this week they were. Well, they could have been an issue.

Coming into their game against the Los Angeles Chargers, the Chiefs would be without Mecole Hardman, and JuJu Smith-Schuster. Then, early in the game both Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Kadarius Toney left.

This offense is predicated on their receivers and the speed they use to create space and extra yards after the catch. all of those players are big factors in that.

The Chiefs needed guys to step up, but they weren’t worried about it at all.

“Yeah, you know, we didn’t even think about that part,” Reid said when asked about being down three great receivers. “We just went in saying, this is what we have to do. Pat [Mahomes] doesn’t worry about all that, he just goes in plays.

“I mean these guys, they all practice, Joe [Bleymaier / wide receiver coach] rotates them in and out Tom Melvin [tight ends coach] does the same, so whoever goes in, goes in and plays. That’s how we roll.”

That is indeed how they roll.

The Chiefs had seven different receivers catch a pass against the Chargers, as the weapons around Mahomes finished with 329 receiving yards.

Guys who you would normally see towards the bottom of the stats sheet when it comes to receiving yards were at the top. Justin Watson finished with three catches for 67 yards.

Jody Fortson finished with two catches for 51 yards, and rookie receiver Skyy Moore had his best game yet with five catches for 63 yards.

This team just rotates weapons like clockwork. It’s what they do.

Didn’t everyone think the Chiefs’ offense would fall off without Tyreek Hill? It didn’t fall off without three of their best receivers.
