Practice Report/Update – 11/2

From the Truman Sports Complex

The players had an extra day off from practice on Wednesday, as Todd Haley welcomed back his group from its day off with a shortened session.

Concerned because the Chiefs have played two physical, division opponents in the last two games, Haley had the squad report on Wednesday at lunch time for a film session and then they held a walkthrough session indoors. It was a mental start to preparations for this Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins at Arrowhead Stadium.

“This is going to be a big challenge for us as a group to get back physically and mentally to be where we need to be,” said Haley.

When it comes to actual injuries, the only player listed on the team’s report for Wednesday was SS Jon McGraw. He left the game in the fourth quarter with a shoulder/neck injury and did not return. McGraw said after the game he did not think the injury as serious enough to keep him out of action this coming weekend.

But there are plenty of bumps, bruises, contusions, scrapes, cuts and aches within the 46 players who have saw action against the Chargers.

“Yeah, you feel like you’ve been run over by a truck and then you remember what happened in the game and it doesn’t feel so bad,” said ILB Derrick Johnson. “With a short week, you just have to take extra care of your body.”

The Chiefs official injury/practice report to the league had only McGraw listed, and he did not participate.

For the Dolphins, they had 10 players on their injury report. Did not practice: S Yeremiah Bell (toe), RT Marc Colombo (knee), C Mike Pouncey (neck) and OLB Jason Taylor (hip). Limited participation: CB Vontae Davis (hamstring), WR Edmond Gates (groin), G Richie Incognito (ankle) and RB Daniel Thomas (hamstring). Full participation: DE Kendall Langford (hip), QB Matt Moore (ribs).

    I think this is a good move, I was worried about the players with a short week and two very physical games also. They wont get as much physical practice in but hopefully it wont hurt them too bad. This is kinda of a scary game it reminds me of last year against the Bills, a winless team coming to KC, that has nothing to lose and KC coming off a couple very physical games. The good thing is that I think the Bills were a better team than the Dolphins are. The Dolphins don’t have a ton of talent but any team can win on any given Sunday. Just look at St. Louis beating the Saints.

    What we need is to step on their throats early. They WILL quit, if we give them the opportunity to do so. But if we let them hang around, it’s trouble.
