Andrew Wylie Chiefs

Update: Kansas City Chiefs RG Andrew Wylie has been discharged from the hospital after tests for appendicitis came back negative on Monday night, per Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star.

If they want to get the Baltimore Ravens on their heels, the Chiefs will need a much quicker start on Monday night than they put up in Week 2. While having WR Sammy Watkins in the starting lineup will be a big boost against a stout Ravens defense, the defending Super Bowl champions were dealt a surprise blow just hours ahead of kickoff.

According to Kansas City Star beat writer Herbie Teope and later confirmed by ESPN Insider Adam Schefter, Chiefs starting right guard Andrew Wylie has been ruled out after he was hospitalized around 5 p.m. with stomach pain, which is now considered by the team to be symptoms of appendicitis.

It appears ninth-year veteran OL Mike Remmers, who signed a 1-year contract with the team back in March, is the leading candidate to replace Wylie at right guard.
