The Chiefs got some bad news before Sunday’s game against the Bengals in Cincinnati as left tackle Orlando Brown was scratched because of a calf injury.

Then backup left tackle Lucas Niang was carted off the field because of a knee injury.

Joe Thuney moved from left guard to left tackle after the pair of injuries. Watching at home was Mitchell Schwartz, who played right tackle from 2016-’20 with the Chiefs.

Schwartz suffered a season-ending injury during the 2020 season, and was cut by the Chiefs last year. But Schwartz said he was willing to lend a hand to the Chiefs ... if the price is right.

On Twitter, Schwartz listed his “demands” to return to the Chiefs, and these are pretty funny:

1) Free BBQ in KC for life

2) No weigh ins during the rest of the year

3) Chiefs buy my old house for $500,000 more than market value

4) Private jet privileges for Cupcake and Pumpkin for 5 years

If you didn’t know it, Cupcake and Pumpkin are Schwartz’s dogs. This was a funny tweet, and Joe’s Kansas City was prepared to take care of demand No. 1.
