"The Chiefs will try again in Sunday's game at Tennessee with perhaps two new components in their running game. Fullback Donnell Bennett, who has what the Chiefs called a sprained foot, left Arrowhead Stadium on crutches Monday and with a cast covering his right foot and ankle.

That leaves his availability for Sunday in serious doubt. Coach Gunther Cunningham said if Bennett doesn't play, the Chiefs would move Richardson to fullback and divide the playing time at halfback between Mike Cloud and rookie Frank Moreau.

Kimble Anders, Cunningham said, would remain the backup fullback.

The Chiefs took an MRI of guard Dave Szott's sprained elbow, and his absence could be lengthy. He probably won't play against the Titans, leaving his spot for Donald Willis, Jeff Blackshear or some combination of the two.

The loss of Szott, one of the game's top guards, would be a loss for the Chiefs.

"The guys that came in there did a good job," quarterback Elvis Grbac said. "But Szotter is one of those guys that can do great things."

"The Chiefs, one of the NFL's top rushing teams the last several seasons, believe they'll be up to it.

"I think it's there," Cunningham said. "We're going to keep hammering away, and we'll get it solved."

Do you think if we go 0-5 in regular season play Lamar might get involved?!

We're not going 0-5, George. And, Lamar isn't getting involved unless it is to find a replacement for Carl....

We'll definitely be successful running the football here," said Tony Richardson, who led the Chiefs with 58 rushing yards. "There's no doubt about that. You'll see."
Here's a thought - IF the Chiefs are SOOO good at running the ball, how come the past 3 seasons it's ALWAYS a concern once the season starts??? The preseason comes and goes and we DON'T run well and then it starts for real and we use our first couple of games to work on what's SUPPOSED to be our "bread and butter"! IF I saw a marked improvement in the passing game I'd understand but that's not the case. Anybody have the answer???

Does anyone remember the Paul Wiggins era? I do. He lived in The Nile too... just like Gun...

I'm not knocking the players, except the secondary. It's the coaches. That's where this all points too. And the next four games will show what kind of coaches they really are...
