After crushing the Arizona Cardinals in Week 1, the Kansas City Chiefs didn't have much time to rest -- or recover from injuries --

Ahead of an important home game tonight against rival Los Angeles Chargers.

Fortunately, at least one key player for the Chiefs was able to heal well enough to get the green light.

Chiefs right guard Trey Smith will be playing tonight, according to NFL Network's James Palmer.

Smith suffered an ankle injury last Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.

He was limited to just 34 snaps in a 44-21 win.

But Smith has yet to miss a game since starting all 17 games as a rookie in 2021.

This streak is now set to continue in one of the biggest games of his career.

Trey Smith was selected in the sixth round from Tennessee in the 2021 NFL Draft.

He was a three-time All-SEC selection for Vol and stood out extensively as a rookie.

Smith was voted to the PFWA's All-Rookie Team last year after starting all 17 games and not missing a single snap throughout the season.

He is becoming increasingly irreplaceable along the Chiefs' offensive line.

Not bad for a player who came 226th in the NFL Draft.

The Chiefs and the Chargers play with each other at 8:15 pm. ET. The game will air on Amazon Prime Video.
