NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Kansas City center Rodney Hudson and receiver Dexter McCluster left Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints after being injured in the third quarter. After trainers looked at Hudson’s right knee, he was replaced by Ryan Lilja, who moved over from left guard, while Jeff Allen came in to play guard.

McCluster hurt his shoulder, which had been bothering him during the week, leaving his status as questionable coming into the game. His injury occurred when fell after making a short catch, letting the ball go moments before he would have been touched down by cornerback Jabari Greer. Officials initially ruled McCluster down, but the call was changed on replay review to a fumble recovered by New Orleans. Chiefs officials say McCluster’s return is questionable.
