Chiefs Practice Update – 11/28

From the Truman Sports Complex

The Chiefs were down five players in Wednesday’s practice, the first of the week in preparation for facing the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

Not practicing for the Chiefs were four starters – C Ryan Lilja (knee) and LT Branden Albert (back) on offense, and S Kendrick Lewis (shoulder) and OLB Tamba Hali (knee) on defense. Also not practicing was WR Dexter McCluster (head).

During the portion of practice open to the media which included position drills, Lilja did not work with the offensive line, but Albert did. Lewis was with the defensive backs but was not part of the walkthrough and McCluster was with the receivers, but he was not running pass routes. Romeo Crennel said McCluster has been cleared to practice on Thursday. Hali was running on another field, away from the other linebackers.

The active roster was down a player already after the Chiefs released LB Bryan Kehl on Tuesday. He’s spot has not been filled on the 53-man list.

“We’ll see what we need to do with it,” Crennel said of the open roster spot. “We’ll probably fill it by the weekend anyway.”

When asked why he did not keep Kehl around until another player was designated for the roster spot, Crennel said: “He was expendable, so I expended him.”

For the Panthers they had two players who did not practice on Wednesday: CB Captain Munnerlyn (not injured related) and RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle). Listed as limited in practice was LB Antwan Applewhite (hamstring) and QB Cam Newton (right wrist) was a full participant.
