Zach Fulton is likely to remain the starter at right guard, Chiefs coach Andy Reid says

The Chiefs started their third different offensive line in four games against the Bengals on Sunday, as second-year pro Zach Fulton stepped in for fellow second-year pro Laurent Duvernay-Tardif at right guard.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Monday that Fulton did “some good things” and was asked if he anticipated Fulton remaining the starter against the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

“I’ll probably end up sticking with Zach right now,” Reid said. “I’ll get with (offensive line) coach (Andy) Heck as the day goes on and talk to him, but right now, I’d probably tell you yes.”

Fulton, a 16-game starter at the position as a rookie a year ago, opened camp as the starter at the position until Duvernay-Tardif seized the position.

The Chiefs' offensive line has struggled mightily this season. They allowed five sacks on Sunday, giving them a league-high 19 through four games. That’s five more than the next closest team, San Francisco.
