KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs could be without both starting cornerbacks after Charvarius Ward fractured his hand during their 34-20 season-opening win over the Houston Texans on Thursday night.
The other starter, Bashaud Breeland, is serving a four-game NFL suspension for a violation of the league’s policy on substance abuse.
Ward will have the injury rechecked Friday to determine how much time he will miss.
Rookie L’Jarius Sneed, a fourth-round draft pick, started in Breeland’s place against the Texans and played well. He had the game’s only interception, and his 39-yard return in the fourth quarter set up the Chiefs’ final touchdown.
