The Chiefs have lost a defensive lineman in their clash against the Broncos.

The Chiefs have suffered a major blow to their defensive line on Sunday night. Defensive end Mike DeVito is out for the remainder of the AFC West clash between the Broncos and Chiefs due to a knee injury, according to NFL.com via Twitter.
