Practice Report/Update – 12/9

From the Truman Sports Complex

The chances of QB Kyle Orton being available to play on Sunday when the Chiefs face the New York Jets is somewhere between slim and none.

For the third straight day Orton was a “limited participant” in practice on Friday because of his dislocated right index finger that he suffered last Sunday in Chicago. On their injury report to the league, the Chiefs have listed Orton as “doubtful” for the game, which translates to only a 25 percent chance of playing. Expect Orton to be inactive on Sunday.

The Chiefs list ILB Demorrio Williams (groin) and ILB Jovan Belcher (shoulder) as questionable, although both were full participants in Friday’s practice. C Casey Wiegmann (fingers) is listed as probable, as is DE Wallace Gilberry, who was added to the report on Friday after suffering a chest injury in practice.

For the first time this week, Todd Haley had his team outside practicing in the elements Friday morning; It was a sunny Kansas City morning with temperatures in the low 30s, with a light breeze. The National Weather Service forecast for the Meadowlands on Sunday is sunny, with a high near 42. There will be a wind out of the north at 6 mph slowly turning to a west wind.

For the Jets, they continued to list 16 players on their injury report, but only two did not practice at all this week: DL Mike DeVito (knee) and RG Brandon Moore (hip). Here’s how New York classified their walking wounded:

  • DOUBTFUL: DL Mike DeVito (knee).
  • QUESTIONABLE: RG Brandon Moore (hip), DT Marcus Dixon (hip), RB Joe McKnight (elbow).
  • PROBABLE: DB Ellis Lankster (back), LB David Harris (ankle), S Eric Smith (knee), OL Vlade Ducasse (knee), RB Shonn Greene (ribs), WR Jeremy Kerley (knee), C Nick Mangold (ankle), LB Calvin Pace (groin), LS Tanner Purdum (back), OL Matt Slauson (knee), RB LaDainian Tomlinson (knee); DE Muhammad Wilkerson (shoulder).

    Two and a half million for “one play” so far. What a bargain.
