Chiefs lose Clark for 2 games for weapon possession charge

Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark has been suspended by the National Football League for two games, after pleading no contest in September to two counts of misdemeanor possession of an assault weapon in Los Angeles.

Clark will be out for Kansas City’s game against Tennessee and the following week’s contest opposite Jacksonville, with a return planned for the November 14th contest at the L.A. Chargers.

In March 2021, Clark was pulled over in Los Angeles while he was a passenger in a vehicle that did not have a license plate.  The officer on scene noticed a weapon in the car, and discovered two loaded firearms.

With Clark’s absence, the Chiefs will lean on young talent, including first-round defensive end George Karlaftis to pick up the slack as the 5-2 Chiefs look to maintain a one game lead over the Chargers in the AFC West.
