5 Greatest Kansas City Chiefs vs. Baltimore Ravens Games

The Kansas City Chiefs defensive line will be without starter Frank Clark for the team's next two games.

The Kansas City Chiefs will be without one of their starting defensive linemen for their next two games.

The NFL announced Tuesday that defensive end Frank Clark has been suspended for violating the league's personal conduct policy, according to Ian Rapaport of NFL Network. 

The suspension is a result of Clark being charged with two counts of misdemeanor possession of a concealed firearm after police officers spotted a submachine gun in his car in Las Vegas in June. Clark also faced similar charges in March when loaded firearms were found in his vehicle during a traffic stop.

Clark has started all seven games at defensive end for the Chiefs this season. He has recorded 15 tackles, including three sacks, one of which resulted in a safety against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

The Chiefs have a bye this week. Clark will miss matchups against the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars.
