In the Chiefs’ 23-13 victory over the Steelers last Sunday, the offensive line had arguably its best game of the season.

The lineup in the game: Eric Fisher at left tackle, left guard Ben Grubbs, center Mitch Morse, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif at right guard and Jeff Allen at right tackle.

But a change is coming Sunday.

Grubbs has been dealing with neck stiffness, and he defensive end Mike DeVito (concussion) and inside linebacker Ramik Wilson (ankle sprain) sat out practice for the second straight day on Thursday.

All three players have been ruled out for the Lions game.
