Week 2 of the NFL season is upon us as the Los Angeles Chargers and the Kansas City Chiefs meet in a tough AFC West division battle. The Chargers took care of the Las Vegas Raiders 24-19 last week, while Patrick Mahomes threw for five touchdowns in the 44-21 blowout of the Cardinals.

Do the #chargers think the #chiefs are tougher or easier to prepare for without Tyreek Hill? And what really stands out most to Brandon Staley may surprise you. My report on NFL NOW on @nflnetwork

This week's game promises to be a tight affair with both offenses locked and loaded and ready to put up points at will. Last year, the Chargers missed out on a playoff berth thanks to the Raiders, while the Chiefs were undone by Joe Burrow and the Bengals in the AFC Championship game.

Here's a look at the injury report for Los Angeles and Kansas City heading into Week 2 of the NFL season.

Kansas City coped well with the loss of Butker last week and it looks like Tommy Townsend will get kicking duties. It did not seem to bother them last week as they still put up 44 points against a disappointing Cardinals outfit.


For the Chargers, it was a good win over the Raiders as Justin Herbert threw for three touchdowns and 279 yards. He will be without Keenan Allen due to a hamstring injury.
