Kansas City Chiefs have a few question marks remaining on the injury report for New York Jets week

Kansas City Chiefs have a few question marks remaining on the injury report for New York Jets week

The Thursday Chiefs injury report. The Kansas City Chiefs made one change to their Thursday injury report: TE Travis Kelce was a full participant in practice after being listed as limited in Wednesday's practice. That confirms what we know: that Kelce is fine ("fine" says the guy running the blog) and will play on Sunday against the New York Jets, just as he did last Sunday against the Rams. CB Jamell Fleming and LB Josh Martin have not practiced for two straight days, which is not a good sign for Sunday's availability. The other two big question marks are S Eric Berry and CB Chris Owens,...

Chiefs No. 1 pass defense faces Jets No. 32 passing offense

The Chiefs and Jets are headed in different directions in the passing game. What happens when the NFL's No. 1 passing defense goes up against the NFL's No. 32 passing offense? The Chiefs of course are the No. 1 passing defense by yards after facing Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Colin Kaepernick and Philip Rivers. There are reasons for that but they've played better than anyone expected thus far. The Jets have one of the two or three worst quarterback situations in the NFL. They are last in passing yards. Their young starter was benched (a guy by the name of Geno Smith) for the veteran who...

Kansas City Chiefs line over New York Jets is the biggest since...

The Kansas City Chiefs are 9.5-point favorites' over the New York Jets, which is the highest since ... So there's this: #Chiefs -9.5 hosting #Jets ... Most points Kansas City favored by since 2003. — RJ Bell (@RJinVegas) October 30, 2014 My first concern was that the point spread he references was the Bengals game back in 2003. You know the one. The Chiefs entered with a 9-0 record and ended up losing the game. That's not the game he's talking about though. I went back and looked at all the Chiefs point spreads on Pro Football Reference from that 2003 season and found two Chiefs...

NFL picks Week 9: Predicting Chiefs vs. Jets and all other games

Kansas City continues its climb toward the playoffs with a tilt against the feeble Jets at Arrowhead. The Kansas City Chiefs looked done in September. Entering the late stages of October, they appear anything but. After starting 0-2, the Chiefs have reeled off four wins in five games and are playing some of the best football in the NFL. Kansas City is blending excellent defense with a powerful rushing attack and complimentary passing game to dominate opponents, leaving many fans excited. This week, the Chiefs host the New York Jets. As many of you know, I'm a New Yorker and thus, have...

Where does Madison Bumgarner rank on list of Kansas City's most-disliked sports figures?

Where does Madison Bumgarner rank on list of Kansas City's most-disliked sports figures?

The Giants pitcher dominated the Royals. And for that, I do not like him. Hate is a strong word. I know that. But used in the context of sports, it's a good one to use here. Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner was a dominant force against the Royals in the World Series, coming out of relief in Game 7 to destroy the Royals chances of hoisting a World Series trophy in a 3-2 Giants victory. Because Bumgarner was so dominant, and because he ruined the dreams of kids around the city -- won't somebody think of the children! -- I think he merits a mention on the list of Kansas City's most disliked...

Chiefs' Alex Smith speaks to the media about his injury

Chiefs' Alex Smith speaks to the media about his injury

The Chiefs QB appears to be fine. Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith suffered a shoulder sprain last week against the St. Louis Rams. You can see the play where it (probably) happened right here. Smith appears to be fine. He practiced on Wednesday and spoke to the media about the injury. Because the quarterback position is kiiiiinda important, I wanted to share his Q&A with the media here. Here's what Smith said about his injury (via quotes from the Chiefs): Q: How's the shoulder? Smith: "It's doing well. Yeah, feeling good." Q: When did it happen? Smith: "Yeah, right there before half, the...

Joe Mays returns to practice for Chiefs, not expected to play vs. Jets

Joe Mays returns to practice for Chiefs, not expected to play vs. Jets

The Chiefs LB has made his return ... but he's not on the roster yet. The Kansas City Chiefs lost starting inside linebacker Joe Mays to a wrist injury before the season but he is on his way to a return. Chiefs coach Andy Reid confirmed that Mays, who was placed on short term IR before the season, is getting back to practice this week. "Joe is going to practice [Wednesday]," Reid said. "Limited role, we are just going to get him back in the swing of things. Again, we look forward to doing that. Start getting himself back into football shape there." The short term IR rules state that once...

James Hasty or Willie Roaf would look good in a Chiefs uniform about now

Marshall Faulk is asking Chiefs fans which player from Chiefs history they would take and put on the team today. Okay @SBNation, this one’s for all teams: Add a football legend to your roster. What happens? http://t.co/ZYWdJccARv #GMCPlaybook — Marshall Faulk (@marshallfaulk) October 29, 2014 The Chiefs have a had a lot of greats so you could take a player like Tony Gonzalez or Priest Holmes and they would be great with the team. Tony Gonzalez would probably be my overall choice here. But Tony G. is great and everyone knows it, so let's focus in on the Chiefs three biggest needs...

Arrowheadlines: Kansas City Chiefs news 10/30

It was an amazing season, Royals. Thank you! Onto the Chiefs... Kansas City Chiefs Alex Smith will practice, play against Jets - ESPN "I’ve had a history of stuff with my right shoulder," Smith said. "I was a little sore, but I felt good. Chiefs linebacker Joe Mays practices Wednesday for the first time in two months | The Kansas City Star "Our docs thought it was time to get him back doing football things," Reid said.

Alex Smith, Jamaal Charles on Chiefs injury report for Jets week

The Kansas City Chiefs list 14 players on their Wednesday injury report. The Kansas City Chiefs have a boatload of new injuries in the past week, according to their Wednesday injury report. Alex Smith and Jamaal Charles are the two names that jump out at you. Smith is dealing with the shoulder injury Andy Reid talked about earlier this week but he did practice in full so it sounds like he should be ready to roll. Meanwhile, Charles was added to the injury report with a back injury, which is a new one. He practiced in full so, again, that's a good sign. Donnie Avery has already been ruled...

Chiefs' Alex Smith will practice despite shoulder injury

The Chiefs QB will practice on Wednesday, the first day of Jets week. Alex Smith was injured in Sunday's Chiefs-Rams game but it doesn't appear to be anything too serious as he will practice on Wednesday as the Chiefs prepare for the New York Jets. Alex Smith will practice today. #Chiefs — BJ Kissel (@ChiefsReporter) October 29, 2014 Smith played the entire game last Sunday and nobody even knew he was hurt until Andy Reid said something about it after the game. Reid called it a sprained shoulder but was optimistic that Smith would be fine. The fact that he is practicing on Wednesday is...

New York media mentions Chiefs exec as possible Jets GM candidate

New York media mentions Chiefs exec as possible Jets GM candidate

The Kansas City Chiefs were able to keep most of their coaching staff and front office intact after their 11-win season last year. They may not be so lucky next year. The NY Daily News' Gary Myers writes today about the turmoil in New York with Jets head coach Rex Ryan and GM John Idzik. In the piece, he mentions two names of interest to the Chiefs as possible GM replacements for the Jets. The first being Chiefs exec Chris Ballard. Two sources predicted Tuesday that Chris Ballard, the Chiefs director of player personnel, will be the hottest GM candidate after the season. His name popped...

Justin Houston far apart on contract talks but Chiefs LB isn't going anywhere

Justin Houston far apart on contract talks but Chiefs LB isn't going anywhere

The reason the franchise tag is available is for situations just like this. Don't expect Chiefs LB Justin Houston to go anywhere. Yahoo! Sports' Rand Getlin is reporting via multiple league sources that the Kansas City Chiefs and Justin Houston are so far apart on a long-term contract that Houston will likely hit free agency or be hit with the franchise tag next season. Go read Getlin's piece now because it does a nice job laying out some of the particulars of the situation, including a projection what kind of numbers Houston could get ("well north of what [JJ] Watt received", according to...

Enjoy today's Kansas City Chiefs news! Sources: Chiefs' Justin Houston likely to be free agent or franchise tagged - Yahoo Sports Though the Kansas City Chiefs and two-time Pro Bowl linebacker Justin Houston have engaged in discussions on a long-term deal for nearly a year, the two sides remain "worlds apart," multiple sources familiar with the negotiations told Yahoo Sports. It appears likely that Houston, who is in the final year of his contract, will either enter free agency or be given the franchise tag, according to multiple sources. Chiefs’ tackle Eric Fisher has been thrown into...

Are these the Kansas City Chiefs top three needs?

NFL Network's Gil Brandt listed out the top three needs for every team in the NFL. We're at the halfway point of the 2014 NFL season so let's stop and evaluate the Chiefs top needs as we enter the second half of the season. The Godfather Gil Brandt listed his top needs for every NFL team -- by current draft order, where the Chiefs are picking 16th -- and for the Chiefs he says it's wide receiver, offensive tackle and cornerback. I could make an argument for an offensive guard but this is a good list. 1. Wide receiver This is the one position most people would put up top. The stat about...

The Chiefs watched JJ Watt's tape every week

The Chiefs watched JJ Watt's tape every week

Everyone remember Jerrell Powe? He was a Chiefs 2011 sixth round pick who stuck with the team for a few years. He's now with the Texans but he told an interesting story to their team website this week. Apparently, the Chiefs used to watch a lot of Powe's teammate JJ Watt film last season. Check it out: Watt was a film study favorite of the Chiefs defensive line coach, Tommy Brasher, a veteran with 25 years of NFL experience."We always watched film on him when we were in Kansas City," Powe said on the Verizon Texans Players radio show on Tuesday. "Coach Brasher always used to make us watch...

2014 NFL power rankings as the Kansas City Chiefs strength of schedule

We are going to take a different look at this week's 2014 NFL power rankings. Go here to see the Week 9 SB Nation NFL power rankings. The Chiefs are ranked 11th which sounds about right at the moment. I have done the math (hey, this wasn't part of the job) to figure out the average power ranking of the seven opponents the Chiefs have already played, compared to the average power ranking of the nine remaining opponents. Here is the Chiefs schedule so you can match those teams up (guess who is No. 32). First seven games (14.4 average power ranking) *Bold are the Chiefs wins ... which you...

Dwayne Bowe is quietly efficient for the Kansas City Chiefs

Dwayne Bowe is not a fantasy superstar this year. But he has been efficient for the Chiefs. Yes, Dwayne Bowe is making over $11 million this season. Yes, the scheduled cap hits for his current deal are $14 million, $13 million, and $13 million over the next three years. Yes, that's too much money to pay for a non-elite wide receiver. His contract, as things stand, makes it unlikely the Chiefs stick with the status quo over the next couple years (now that he's gone ahead and voided his guarantees by being suspended for a game). I get it. But I don't want to talk about Dwayne Bowe's...

Join the Arrowhead Pride Fanduel league this week

I have to admit, I am getting a little obsessed with Fanduel. I am the guy in season-long fantasy leagues who checks out when my team ends up sucking (which happens four out of five years). I am the equivalent of a receiver who does not get the ball and mentally checks out early. A diva, if you will. With that said, Fanduel has been my go-to game this year because it's by week. We have partnered up with Fanduel this year and this week Fanduel created a league specifically for Arrowhead Pride users (none of those Broncos or Raiders fans here). It's a $5 entry fee to play our game this...
