The Chiefs’ competition at starting left guard got more interesting Monday when the team activated Parker Ehinger off the physically-unable-to-perform list.
Ehinger, a fourth-round pick in 2016, made four starts and appeared in five games his rookie season. He was placed on injured reserve after tearing an anterior cruciate ligament in the Chiefs’ 30-14 win over the Indianapolis Colts last October. Zach Fulton replaced Ehinger as the starter for the rest of the season.
Fulton returns to the mix this year, but third-year pro Bryan Witzmann has earned the majority of time at left guard with the first string in camp. The two essentially shared the first-team reps in the Chiefs’ preseason win over Cincinnati on Saturday.
