Kansas City Chiefs explain the Jamell Fleming and Marcus Cooper switch

Chiefs DC Bob Sutton explains the reasoning behind benching Marcus Cooper for Jamell Fleming. In a surprising move last week the Kansas City Chiefs swapped starting CB Marcus Cooper for Jamell Fleming, who was signed off the Ravens practice squad about six weeks earlier. Cooper had been struggling at corner so in hindsight it's not a surprise he was replaced. But replacing a starting cornerback is still a pretty big move. Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton admitted that Cooper was benched for performance reasons as he explained the switch. "Well, obviously, we just thought that we...

Chiefs' Junior Hemingway practices; Will Eric Berry play?

Your Thursday Chiefs injury report. We saw one change to the Kansas City Chiefs injury report from Wednesday to Thursday. WR Junior Hemingway did not practice on Wednesday but returned for a limited practice on Thursday. Hemingway strained his hamstring in last Sunday's Chiefs-Chargers game. It's unclear where he stands on being able to play on Sunday against the St. Louis Rams but practicing on Thursday is a good sign. The rest of the Chiefs injury report remains the same. With Chris Owens not practicing again, it's not looking good for his chances to play on Sunday. That would mean more...

NFL picks Week 8: Predicting Chiefs vs. Rams and all other games

NFL picks Week 8: Predicting Chiefs vs. Rams and all other games

Kansas City aims to get over .500 for the first time this season against its interstate rival. The Kansas City Chiefs have had the look of an excellent team over the last five weeks, slugging it out with the NFL's elite. After a brutal stretch, the Chiefs sit at 3-3 and in good position for a playoff run, but now need to beat some teams which come into Arrowhead Stadium as underdogs. The first such opponent is the St. Louis Rams. The Rams are 2-4 but coming off a huge victory over the Seattle Seahawks. Can the Chiefs set up and take care of business, or will it be a repeat of the Week 1...

Rams plans to stop Jamaal Charles and getting to know Aaron Donald and Austin Davis

A Q&A with the enemy ahead of Sunday's Chiefs-Rams game. To prepare for Sunday's Chiefs-Rams game, we spoke with Turf Show Times, SB Nation's Rams blog. We asked about a few lesser known players Chiefs fans should know about as well as who in the heck their new quarterback is. Thanks to Turf Show Times for the Q&A. Head on over there for your Rams news this week. 1. Who is one player on the Rams defense we don't know but should? If you haven't picked up on Aaron Donald yet, the train's leaving the station. PFF has him graded out as the second best DT in the NFL. To me, he's a new kind of...

Kansas City Chiefs work out a free agent cornerback

Trevin Wade made a couple of playoff appearances last season for the New Orleans Saints The Kansas City Chiefs continue to check out options for the secondary with word that they'd worked out a veteran cornerback. #CB Trevin Wade also worked out for the #Chiefs this week. — Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) October 23, 2014 Trevin Wade came into the NFL as a seventh round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns. He was released the following preseason and remained available as a free agent until the New Orleans Saints picked up him halfway through last season. Wade hit the waiver...

Chiefs' Cairo Santos talked to Robbie Gould, and other kickers around the NFL

Chiefs' Cairo Santos talked to Robbie Gould, and other kickers around the NFL

The Chiefs young kicker struggled early on but has begun to found his groove. We were all ready to kick Kansas City Chiefs kicker Cairo Santos to the curb when he missed two field goals in his first two weeks. In the last three games, however, Santos is 6-for-6. Things are headed in the right direction. So, what helped Santos get his mind right so he could right the ship? Talking to other veteran kickers, such as Robbie Gould, who once played under Dave Toub. "I talked to Robbie Gould," Santos said (via quotes from the Chiefs). "He called me out of nowhere and was really nice. He's a great...

Buccaneers sign linebacker Orie Lemon off Chiefs practice squad

Buccaneers sign linebacker Orie Lemon off Chiefs practice squad

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers add another bit of reinforcement to their defense. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed linebacker Orie Lemon to their active roster. Lemon was a member of the Kansas City Chiefs' practice squad, and has spent most of his four-year career on the Dallas Cowboys' and Arizona Cardinals' practice squads. General manager Jason Licht would be familiar with Lemon from his time spent with the Arizona front office. The Bucs likely signed Lemon to alleviate some injury problems at the linebacker spot, as Jonathan Casillas, Brandon Magee and Danny Lansanah are all nicked up...

Chargers vs. Broncos: Who should Chiefs fans root for on Thursday Night Football?

Chargers vs. Broncos: Who should Chiefs fans root for on Thursday Night Football?

Which team should the Chiefs fans cheer against on Thursday night? The San Diego Chargers and Denver Broncos meet on Thursday Night Football this evening. The Chargers are 5-1 while the Broncos are 5-1. Both teams are ahead of the 3-3 Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West? So who should Chiefs fans be rooting for? As horrible as it sounds, I think the Chiefs should be rooting for the Broncos to win. Wait, the Chiefs should be rooting not for the Broncos to win, but the Chargers to lose. Ah, that sounds better. I don't see the Chiefs winning the AFC West. That is likely going to the Broncos. So...

Chiefs lose practice squad player to Buccaneers, sign another linebacker

Chiefs lose practice squad player to Buccaneers, sign another linebacker

Once again, the Chiefs lose a linebacker to another team. Last week the Kansas City Chiefs lost practice squad linebacker Nico Johnson to the Cincinnati Bengals, who signed him to their active roster. The Chiefs in response signed linebacker Orie Lemon to their practice squad. Now Lemon has been poached off the Chiefs practice squad, inking a deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This gives Lemon an opportunity to get on the Bucs active roster so this is good for him. The Chiefs announced the signing of linebacker Darin Drakeford after Lemon was lost to Tampa Bay. Drakeford was a 2013 Chiefs...

Rams-Chiefs: The Turf Show Times’ Staff Predicts A Winner

The St. Louis Rams will travel cross-state to take on the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 8. Eleven members of the Turf Show Times’ staff predict the game’s outcome... The St. Louis Rams haven’t played the Kansas City Chiefs in regular season play since 2010.  The Chiefs walked away from the Edward Jones Dome victors that day, besting the Rams 27-13. But these aren’t Steve Spagnuolo’s Rams...and they’re not Todd Haley’s Chiefs. Can the [2-4] Rams travel cross-state and beat the [3-3] Chiefs at Arrowhead in this Week 8 Governor’s Cup matchup?  Eleven Turf Show Times' experts...

NFL trade deadline is coming, so let's talk about Chiefs QB Chase Daniel

NFL trade deadline is coming, so let's talk about Chiefs QB Chase Daniel

Does Chase Daniel have any trade value for the Kansas City Chiefs? The answer is ... probably. In an ESPN Insider piece on backup quarterbacks who could start next year, Adam Caplan reports that at least two teams "privately" discussed the idea of trading for Daniel earlier this year. The report does not state that they called the Chiefs or had any discussions with the Chiefs. So we are in the rumor mill with this one. Daniel signed a 3-year, $10 million deal before the 2013 season so he has one more year left on his deal after this season. Why a trade makes sense Tyler Bray is currently...

Best and worst fantasy football picks for Kansas City Chiefs vs. St. Louis Rams

Best and worst fantasy football picks for Kansas City Chiefs vs. St. Louis Rams

I see a couple of players this week that make sense in your Fanduel league, and a few others that don't make much sense. This week's Chiefs-Rams fantasy outlook: QB Alex Smith: The Rams pass rush should be so much better but statistically it's one of the worst in the league. I'm not buying that they're that bad but they do give up a lot of points so Smith should be a consideration if you want to roll the dice. I found this interesting: Rams QB Austin Davis is a more expensive Fanduel player than Smith. RB Jamaal Charles: The Rams are 28th in rushing yards given up. Jamaal Charles is really...

Arrowheadlines: Kansas City Chiefs News 10/23

Good morning! Here is today's Kansas City Chiefs News. Enjoy! Andy Reid Press Conference 10/22 from The Mothership Q: After looking at the video, what are your thoughts about how things worked out in the corner on Sunday? Are you planning on going that way again? REID: "Yeah, there's a chance that we do that. So, there were some good things that (Jamell) Fleming did. I think he settled down as the game went on. I think his juices were running obviously early. I thought he did a pretty nice job there. (Phillip) Gaines, I thought, did a good job on the inside and when he had chances on the...

What adjustments do Kansas City Chiefs still need to make this season?

What adjustments are needed to make sure you are fighting for a playoff spot? Let me tell you, Marshall, the Chiefs have made their adjustments and will continue to tweak what they're doing. I like the way Andy Reid has adjusted this season. There are still moves to be made past the halfway point of the season. Here are two adjustments the Chiefs have already made this season: 1. Marcus Cooper was benched for Jamell Fleming. Cooper was getting picked on quite a bit so the Chiefs benched him last week in favor of little known Jamell Fleming. It was a risky move as Fleming had a rough start...

Travis Kelce is OK with rib injury while Justin Houston pops up on injury report

We have the Kansas City Chiefs Wednesday injury report for you. The good news on the KC Chiefs Wednesday injury report is that Travis Kelce was a limited participant in practice with his sore ribs. Andy Reid didn't sound like it was something that would keep him out. So that's the best news of the day. Junior Hemingway strained his hamstring in last weekend's game and did not practice on Wednesday but Reid said he was doing better than they thought so perhaps there's still hope he can be available on Sunday. Justin Houston popped up on the injury report with an ankle injury but practiced...
Why a Vincent Jackson trade to the Chiefs won't happen

Why a Vincent Jackson trade to the Chiefs won't happen

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won't trade Vincent Jackson to the Kansas City Chiefs. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are willing to trade Vincent Jackson, for the right offer, and we have the first rumored candidate: Kansas City. Don't worry, it's not a rumor with a lot of substance. It seems to be based on this NFL.comarticle, which just suggests the trade as a possibility, nothing more than that. It's always fun when someone saying "this might make some sense" turns into a genuine rumor. Why this rumor makes sense The Chiefs could use a good wide receiver, and the Bucs could use some draft picks....

Chiefs' Andy Reid watched the Royals while scouting the Rams

It's tough not to pay attention to your neighbors, especially when those neighbors are in a nationally televised World Series game. The Kansas City Royals lost to the San Francisco Giants in Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday, and Andy Reid stayed up to watch it. Speaking to the media on Wednesday, Reid said that he watched the Royals game while scouting their Week 8 opponent the St. Louis Rams. "Listen, I think it's awesome," Reid said when asked about the Royals (via quotes from the Chiefs). "I'm proud of the Royals and the job that they did this year and they're going to continue to...

Kansas City Royals TV ratings higher than any Chiefs game this season

Nationally, the Giants-Royals World Series opener was a flop with one of the lowest TV ratings on record. In Kansas City, it was a huge hit. The Royals TV ratings were higher in Kansas City than any Chiefs game this season, according to a report from Awful Announcing. Kansas City led all markets, posting a 48.2/68, the best rating for World Series Game 1 in any market since 2007, while San Francisco registered a 29.3/50. Sacramento (23.0/37), St. Louis (13.3/20) and Las Vegas (11.1/19) rounded out the top five. The numbers for Game 1 in Kansas City were higher than any Chiefs game this...
