From Arrowhead Stadium
WR Dwayne Bowe, CBs Brandon Flowers and Brandon Carr were all fined by the NFL office this week for violations of the uniform code during Monday night’s game against San Diego.
The trio replaced the normal white socks with red and gold piping with solid red socks. But that wasn’t why they were fined according to Bowe. He said the fine came because of their shoes. They spray painted black shoes red and that drew the discipline because they did not display an appropriate NFL approved logo.
No word on the size of the fine, but uniform violations usually fall in the $5,000 to $10,000 range depending on the nature of the transgression and how often the player might be an offender.
As has become their custom on the Friday of home games, the Chiefs held their last practice of the week inside Arrowhead Stadium. Todd Haley was happy with what he saw from his team.
“I think the guys are over the hump from Monday night,” the head coach said. “There was a good pace throughout the practice. Things go quick when you have a short week.”
Things did not go quickly for veteran SS Jon McGraw, who did not practice this week because of a shoulder injury suffered Monday night against San Diego. On the Chiefs official injury report to the league office Friday afternoon McGraw is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins. If McGraw does not play, the Chiefs defense will be down to their third different starting strong safety this season, likely to be Donald Washington.
Also on that injured list as of Friday is CB Javier Arenas with an ankle injury. He was a limited participant in practice the past two days and is listed as questionable.
All 10 players on the Dolphins injury report have a chance of playing on Sunday. They break down this way:
Questionable – CB Vontae Davis (hamstring), WR Edmond Gates (groin) and RB Daniel Thomas (hamstring).
Probable – S Yeremiah Bell (toe), OT Marc Colombo (knee), C Mike Pouncey (neck), OLB Jason Taylor (hip), G Richie Incognito (ankle), DE Kendall Langford (hips) and QB Matt Moore (ribs).
