UPDATE 10:25 p.m.: The Chiefs announced that Damien Williams is OUT for the rest of the game. LeSean McCoy will remain the starter the rest of the way and Darrel Williams will operate behind him. Darrel scored a touchdown on the Chiefs previous drive to give them a 17-9 lead. He and Shady each have one touchdown.

UPDATE 10:07 p.m.: The Chiefs got the ball to start the second half against the Chargers. LeSean McCoy remains in the starting lineup while Williams is questionable to return with his rib injury.

UPDATE 9:49 p.m.: The Chiefs have announced Williams is questionable to return in Week 11 due to a rib injury. Through the first half, McCoy has three rushes for 15 yards and a touchdown and two catches for a net of -2 yards. Darrel Williams has one four-yard catch.

Kansas City Chiefs running back Damien Williams had to limp off the field before halftime with some kind of leg injury. He will head back to the locker room to get checked out during halftime and we will get you updates as soon as they become available. Williams had four rushes for seven yards and a six-yard reception at the time of his injury.

LeSean McCoy had already scored a touchdown from six yards out, so there appeared to be a committee approach before Williams left. If Williams has suffered an injury that keeps him out for the rest of the game, McCoy will take over with Darrel Williams as his main backup.
