Friday 10/8 Practice Report-Update

From the Truman Sports Complex

Speaking for the first time since his gall bladder surgery last week, Chiefs offensive coordinator Charlie Weis says he’s doing fine and “moving on” from the problem.

“It was perfect timing,” Weis said of the brief time he missed between the Monday after the victory over San Francisco to Thursday when he was back at bye-week practice with the team.

Weis was reticent to talk about much else involving the problem, procedure and recovery. “Too many times someone becomes the story, when it’ not about that person, it’s about the team,” Weis said. “I’m fine and moving on.”

Defensive counterpart Romeo Crennel brushed aside the notion that because of his past work against the Colts and QB Peyton Manning, he’s the key to the team’s defensive effort on Sunday.

“I have not played one snap in a game,” Crennel said. “I have not played one snap in ages. I can’t make any plays. I can just try to get our guys to play hard. Hopefully we’ll keep playing hard and doing things the right way.”

As for sharing any secrets on stopping Manning, Crennel wasn’t biting.

“You play your best and then see how it comes out,” Crennel said. “If Peyton has the ball, he’s moving it down the field.”

The Chiefs went inside for their final practice of the week; better to simulate the experience of playing at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

As it has been all week, the speakers were out and crowd noise was pumped up for the offense.

Only S Reshard Langford (ankle) was not participating in the workout; he was in the rehab area riding the stationary bike. The Chiefs list him as doubtful on the official NFL injury report  OT Ryan O’Callaghan (groin) and DE Tyson Jackson (knee) both appeared to be full participants in the practice. They are listed as questionable.

On the Colts injury report they have declared S Bob Sanders, WR Anthony Gonzalez ad LB Kavell Conner as out of the game with the Colts. Listed as questionable are 10 players: RBs Joseph Addai (knee), Mike Hart (knee) and Donald Brown (hamstring); DBs Antoine Bethea (hamstring), Jacob Lacey (foot) and Brandon King (hamstring); WRs Pierre Garcon (hamstring) and Austin Collie (foot); offensive linemen G Jamey RIchard (shoulder) and T Charlie Johnson (foot).

    The Romeo Crennel-Peyton Manning chess match has played out several times before. While Crennel tells us that he, himself, has not played a snap for decades, he is the zen master for those young men who do and now he has Emmitt Thomas by his side.

    This battle of wits between QB and DC has to have been some of the most demanding and satisfying encounters for both men and will be on display for all to see.

    Perhaps the most intriguing part of the melodrama will be Manning’s attempts to exploit Eric Berry’s lack of experience and the Crennel/Thomas/Berry response.

    If it rains here Sunday that is fine because there is not much chance any yard work would have been accomplished anyway.

    Weis and Crennel are as good as it gets. They have allowed Haley to become a good head coach.
