KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KCTV) - The Kansas City Chiefs have ruled cornerback Rashad Fenton out for Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Fenton missed last week’s game against the Buffalo Bills with an injury to his hamstring. In his absence, Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo and the unit has relied upon rookie cornerbacks Jaylen Watson and Joshua Williams to play alongside L’Jarius Sneed.
