Wide receiver Albert Wilson has been ruled out of the Chiefs game today against the Steelers at Arrowhead Stadium.
Demarcus Robinson is scheduled to make his first NFL start.
Wilson’s status was downgraded to questionable on Saturday because of a knee injury. He becomes the second wide receiver to miss playing time. Chris Conley was lost for the season with a ruptured Achilles suffered in last weekend’s victory at Houston.
Wilson is tied for third on the Chiefs with 16 receptions. He averages 9.9 yards per catch and has a touchdown reception.
