Brandon Marshall, Mason Foster among linebackers who could help Chiefs

After being pummeled in the run game by the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday night, the Kansas City Chiefs now have the 30th ranked run defense in the NFL based on yards per game allowed (155.8). The team is actually worse when looking at yards per rushing attempt, ranking second to last in the league with 5.3 yards/carry allowed.
