The former Tide standout was inactive last week in the divisional round against the Buffalo Bills, after suffering a dislocated kneecap in the Bengals wild card win over the Baltimore Ravens. As for Cappa, the California native will be missing his third straight game due to an ankle injury dating back to the final week of the regular season

Williams is in his fifth season with the Bengals and is considered the anchor of the Bengals offensive line.

With the injuries to what's already considered a weak offensive line, all the pressure shifts toward Cincinnati to stop a determined Chiefs front seven. In last years AFC Championship, the Chiefs defense gave up 21 unanswered points in last years matchup, leading to a Bengals 27-24 win in overtime, to send them to Super Bowl 56.

The Bengals are not the only team concerned about injuries. The Chiefs star quarterback and MVP favorite Patrick Mahomes suffered a rolled ankle in last week's divisional round victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Mahomes suffered his injury in the first quarter and missed the whole second quarter before returning in the second half. Despite speculation on whether the former MVP will take the field Sunday, Kansas City has listed him as a full participant this week in practice.

The Chiefs and Bengals will face off on Sunday, in Arrowhead Stadium, at 5:30 p.m. CST, on CBS.
