Adrian Peterson might find a few extra holes to run through if Dontari Poe can't go.

The Chiefs need their star nose tackle to gobble two linemen up against the Vikings. But he suffered a high-ankle sprain -- football's dreaded leg injury -- and might be limited on Sunday.

Then again, he might not be. Poe rebounded in impressive time from a herniated disc this summer. And last weekend, he received his highest snap total in 2015.

That's the kind of volume production K.C. needs to get off the losing path this weekend.
