KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV/AP) -- The Kansas City Chiefs will be without multiple starters as they play in Denver on Thursday night.

Cornerback Kendall Fuller, wide receiver Sammy Watkins, defensive lineman Chris Jones and offensive linemen Andrew Wylie and Eric Fisher have been ruled out for Thursday's game.

Watkins will miss his second consecutive game with a hamstring injury. 

Fuller was ruled out after breaking his thumb in last week's loss to Houston. Jones and Fisher have core muscle injuries, and Wylie suffered an ankle injury.

Cornerback Bashaud Breeland is listed as questionable.

The Chiefs did get some positive news in that middle linebacker Anthony Hitchens would be back on the field. The on-field play-caller missed last week's game with a groin injury.

The shorthanded Chiefs will look to bounce back following two consecutive losses at Arrowhead Stadium.

Should Denver win, the Chiefs would drop to second place in the AFC West in the loss column.
