Friday 11/19 Practice Report-Update2

From Arrowhead Stadium

For Sunday against Arizona, that’s a yes for Todd Haley and Brian Waters, a no for Tony Moeaki and Jon McGraw, a maybe for Dexter McCluster and a surprise unknown with Ryan Lilja.

That’s the availability/injury report after the Chiefs closed out their preparation week with a practice inside Arrowhead on Friday.

“The game is coming fast now and I’m really excited that we are at home and our fans get a chance to come back out and let it loose for us,” said Haley, who indicated he would be on the sidelines and there would be no restrictions on his movements because of his leg injury. “This is a dangerous Arizona Cardinals team. They have a number of players that can disrupt us. We have to be on our ‘A’ game.”

Moeaki was not on the Arrowhead field for the workout and he will not play on Sunday because of his head (concussion) injury.  Neither will McGraw (knee/head) was on the field, but he was not taking part in any of the practice work for the second consecutive day.

McCluster did some work running routes as the Chiefs offense worked the passing game, but he was not taking a full practice turn on that sprained ankle. There seems a slight chance that he may be dressed on Sunday but it doesn’t appear that he’s close to full speed. He’s listed as questionable.

Waters was back at left guard with the No. 1 unit as they walked through some of their assignments. He spent the first two practices doing more watching than working because of several ailments – groin, foot and shoulder. He’s listed as questionable. Rookie Jon Asamoah moved over to right guard in place of Ryan Lilja, who turned up on the injury report Friday because of a foot problem and is listed as questionable for the game.

FS Kendrick Lewis (hamstring) appeared to do all the work and should return to the field after a two-game absence. Coincidence or not, Lewis has missed three of nine games this year because of injury and the Chiefs are 0-3 when he’s absent. He is listed as questionable, as is DB Donald Washington, with joined the injury report on Friday with a calf problem.

For the Cardinals, they list eight players as questionable for Sunday, including RB-KR LaRod Stephens-Howling who did not practice all week because of a hamstring injury. The other seven questionable players include four defensive starters: DT Darnell Dockett (shoulder), LB Clark Haggans (groin), S Kerry Rhodes (hand/back) and CB Greg Toler (foot). Also questionabl are LB Reggie Walker (hamstring), RB Beanie Wells (knee) and RB Jason Wright (head).

Listed as probable are DT Dan Williams (cal), LB Will Davis (knee), LB Paris Lenon (ankle) and TE Stephen Spach (foot).

    Wow…inuries are really getting to pile up and cause a lot of shifting. If Waters and Lilja can’t go, it’ll be interesting to see if Asamough is on the right or left, and if it will be Niswanger or Richardson at the other guard spot, with O’Call at RT. Waters and Lilja are both tough guys, though. If they can play, they will. I feel better about Berry being back there with Lewis, but Price as the reserve makes me nervous. I would use Travis Daniels as the third guy back there. Can’t really replace Dex; no one else does what he does. But, both T. Jones and Charles should be more inolved in the passing game. Will have to take a few shots downfield to Tucker and Bowe. Copper’s only good for short or medium stuff, mostly slants.

    I said it once i’m say it again Lewis is just as important to that secondary as Berry. His presence as a ball hawk helps this defense and we can really run full defensive scheme when he is in there compared to Washington when the defensive scheme has to be dummyed down for him.

    All I can say is I hope and pray that my beloved CHIEFS play a whole lot better than they did last week!!!! I can’t even put into words how I felt after the Broncos game. TOTAL FRUSTRATION.
