KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs lost backup quarterback Chad Henne to a broken ankle that will require surgery, and they quickly signed veteran Matt Moore on Monday to provide depth behind starter Patrick Mahomes.

The Chiefs have two other quarterbacks on their roster in Chase Litton and Kyle Shurmur, but neither of the developmental prospects has distinguished himself during the preseason.

“Unfortunately, injuries happen, but one thing I do know is that our medical staff, our head coach and our personnel staff are going to make the best decisions for us moving forward,” Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy said. “You never want to see anyone get hurt in this industry, but one thing we understand is that we have two young guys. We have to get them up and coming.”
