  Chiefs | Five players will not practice     Thu Dec 13, 12:53 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe (ribs), OG Russ Hochstein (back), OG Ryan Lilja (knee), OT Branden Albert (back) and FS Abram Elam (quadriceps) will not practice Thursday, Dec. 13.

Footballguys view: Bowe hasn't officially been ruled out for the rest of the year but we don't think he'll play again in 2012. That makes Jonathan Baldwin the Chiefs top WR, but because of the QB situation we can only recommend him as a flex play in week 15 against the Raiders.

  Chiefs | Inexperienced players could get plenty of work    Fri Dec 7, 09:17 PM

The Kansas City Chiefs finished their Week 13 game against the Carolina Panthers with a patchwork lineup featuring FS Tysyn Hartman and FS Neiko Thorpe, as well as LB Cory Greenwood. Injuries to CB Brandon Flowers (hamstring), LB Derrick Johnson (hamstring) and FS Abram Elam (quadriceps) might give those inexperienced players more time to shine in Week 14 against the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Bump up your expectations for the Browns offense. We see RB Trent Richardson as a RB1 and top 10 play in week 14. WR Josh Gordon makes for a nice WR3 or flex play too.

  Chiefs | Using different looks in secondary    Tue Aug 14, 11:22 PM

The presence of Kansas City Chiefs FS Abram Elam has allowed the team to expand the role of SS Eric Berry. For instance, in the preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals, Elam's presence allowed Berry to slide into a linebacker position. When Berry lines up at LB, he is allowed to blitz, play the run or drop into coverage. Elam can also play both safety positions.
