From the Truman Sports Complex
In an effort to do anything possible to change the mojo around his team, Romeo Crennel did not take them to Arrowhead Stadium for Friday’s practice.
Instead, they stayed at their facility for the last session of preparation for Sunday’s game against Baltimore. Plus, the practice music of the previous week is gone. Now, it’s just the silence of the autumn wind blowing across the practice fields.
Crennel indicated that four Chiefs would be out of practice and will not play against the Ravens: RB Peyton Hillis (ankle), DE Glenn Dorsey (calf), CB Jalil Brown (hamstring) and WR Devon Wylie (hamstring). None of those four has practiced at all this week.
On their official injury report to the league office, the Chiefs listed Hillis, Wylie and Dorsey as out and Brown as doubtful, meaning there’s a 75 percent chance he will not play.
The head coach said everybody else on the injury report is in some state of limited practice: ILB Derrick Johnson (groin), DE Ropati Pitoitua (elbow), WR Jon Baldwin (hamstring), C Ryan Lilja (back), CB Brandon Flowers (foot) and FS Kendrick Lewis (shoulder).
On the injury/practice report to the league Pitoitua, Johnson and Lewis were listed as questionable, with Flowers, Baldwin and Lilja down as probable.
For the Ravens, OT Jah Reid is questionable with a calf injury and WR Torrey Smith is probable with an ankle injury.
