KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)

The Oakland Raiders were running out of offensive lineman after backup center Andre Gurode and right tackle Tony Pashos left their game against the Chiefs with injuries.

Kansas City also lost left tackle Branden Albert to a knee injury Sunday.

Gurode hurt his knee midway through the second quarter. It wasn't immediately clear which knee he hurt or whether he would return. The Raiders were already without starting center Stefan Wisniewski, who was inactive because of his own knee injury.

Pashos hurt his groin late in the first half, and the team announced at the end of halftime that he was doubtful to return.

The Raiders wound up sliding right guard Mike Brisiel to center, Lucas Nix from left guard to right and inserting rookie Lamar Mady on the left side. Matt McCants took over for Pashos at right tackle.

Albert left the game briefly with an elbow injury. Then he was rolled into late in the first half and was helped gingerly off the field. He was questionable to return.
