On Monday, Kansas City's depth at running back was compromised.
Jerrion Ealy, a Chiefs running back, was given a six-game suspension, according to the league.
Ealy has been suspended for breaching the league's rules on performance-enhancing substances. He has spent the most of his time on the practice squad.
According to a source, Jerrion Ealy's six-game ban stems from breaking the rules on performance-enhancing drugs, according to Tom Pelissero.
The 22-year-old running back is playing for the Chiefs for the first time this year. He participated in college sports at Ole Miss.
Kansas City just defeated Tampa Bay.
