Thursday 1/6 Practice Report-Update

From the Truman Sports Complex

WR Dwayne Bowe was back, LG Brian Waters was not and SS Eric Berry was honored.

That was the roll call of importance on Thursday as the Chiefs went through their second practice of the week in preparation of Sunday’s post-season game against Baltimore at Arrowhead Stadium.

“We had a re-emphasis lesson, kindergarten rules of wash your hands in warm water for two minutes,” head coach Todd Haley said about trying to handle the flu bug that’s entered his locker room. “The important thing is to just get Brian back to health. That’s no fun (the flu), everybody knows it.”

Bowe was back and was listed as a full participant in Thursday’s practice. But the flu bug claimed another victim on Thursday in WR Quinten Lawrence who did not take part in practice.

With a grizzled veteran like Waters, missing two practices will have very little effect on him if he’s capable of playing on Sunday. “A guy like Brian has been around while,” said Haley. “If he can play, I’m sure he will.”

Waters and Lawrence were not on the field at all; rookie Jon Asamoah was working in Waters’ spot.

Berry was named by the NFL as the rookie of the month for December/January. The first-round choice out of Tennessee finished the season with a strong five games. Berry produced 39 total tackles (27 solo), eight passes defensed, two INTs with one TD and five special teams tackles. He scored his first NFL TD on a 54-yard interception return against Tennessee.

From Baltimore, the Ravens released this injury/practice report for Thursday:

Out: DT Haloti Ngata (thigh) and LB Terrell Suggs (knee).

Limited: LB Dannell Ellerbe (head), LB Tavares Gooden (shoulder), LB Jameel McClain (back), CB Josh Wilson (head), S Tom Zbikowski (back) and S Ed Reed (chest).

Full: WR Derrick Mason (ankle), OT Michael Oher (knee), WR David Reed (wrist) and C Matt Birk (knee).
