Chiefs notebook: Injuries leave question marks on defense (http://www.kansascity.com/sports/chiefs/story/912434.html)

Injuries continue defensive uncertainty

The Chiefs are back where they were two weeks ago: not knowing who might be healthy and available on defense.

A week after their worst defensive performance in team history, the Chiefs might travel to Oakland with a depleted unit. Coach Herm Edwards said Thursday that four regular defenders were unable to practice, and two more were limited.

“We’ll have 11 (players),” Edwards said of his defense’s travel unit. “Don’t know which 11, but we’ll have 11.”

Cornerback Patrick Surtain (quad), linebackers Weston Dacus (knee) and Donnie Edwards (knee and ankle) and end Tamba Hali (knee) did not participate Thursday. Defensive tackle Tank Tyler (hip) and end Alfonso Boone (back) were limited.

Herm Edwards said Hali and Tyler were “50-50” as to whether they might be available Sunday against the Raiders. After end Turk McBride was placed on injured reserve last week, that leaves rookie Glenn Dorsey as the only healthy starting lineman.

Other injuries
Guard Adrian Jones (ankle) and wide receiver Mark Bradley (calf) also did not practice Thursday.
Safety Jarrad Page (groin) and linebacker Pat Thomas (thigh) were full participants.

Hey guys, if you've ever watchedthe movie Invincible and said to yourself, "I could do that", this might be a good time to try out as a walk-on to the Chiefs roster...

It can't be worse...even when the guys who are suppose to play, play, it's pretty bad.

that $30 million in cap space sure looks nice just sitting there.

Im thinking of starting McFadden on my fantasy team for the first time in months.


Seems like a slam dunk this week.

It's nice to know we'll have 11 players out there at least.

I listened to Marcellus Wiley on ESPN tonight say he thought the Raiders would be a good team before the Chiefs. Pretty bad since the Raiders are generally thought of as the worst managed franchise in professional sports.

If we play this way much longer, most of that will be absorbed by the top 5 overall picks in the draft.

Eh, i think Clark expected it. They are paying for renovations, but are recouping that through a shitty team and the lowest payroll in the league. We may have to expect that shit next year. He can get what 60 million of it back.

It's between Rodgers and Thiggy for my team...playoffs have started so it's a must win!

If Thiggy puts up good numbers, he earned 'em. If McFadden runs for 200 yards, its because he has a pulse.
