Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe has left the game Sunday against the Denver Broncos with a neck injury and his return is questionable.

Bowe appeared to be shaken up after a catch late in the first half. He walked off under his own power, but wasn't on the field for Kansas City's opening series of the second half.

Despite being shadowed by Pro Bowl cornerback Champ Bailey most of the game, Bowe has had a big day. He has six catches for 93 yards.

In the first half, the Broncos lost offensive guard Chris Kuper to a left leg injury. Kuper was blocking on a running play when rookie right tackle Orlando Franklin rolled into the back of his leg.

Before he was taken off the field on a cart, many of Kuper's offensive teammates came over to offer support, including quarterback Tim Tebow. Kuper is a stalwart on a young offensive line.

Russ Hochstein took over Kuper's spot.

Broncos fullback Spencer Larsen left in the second quarter with a knee injury. The team didn't specify which knee Larsen hurt.
