Chiefs ILB Josh Mauga is out for the season with a torn labrum in his shoulder.
It's a big blow to Kansas City's defense, which will also be minus OLB Justin Houston (knee) for the first six games. Mauga isn't a difference maker inside, but he is coming off a solid season as a 14-game starter. Next to Derrick Johnson, Ramik Wilson is listed behind Mauga on the depth chart at inside linebacker.
