As you’ve probably heard, the Chiefs‘ linebacker woes continue. Demorrio Williams is now out with a cracked bone in his hand. He will miss the final two preseason games and play with a cast when the season starts. Wes Dacus will start in his place.
Who in the hell is Wes Dacus, you ask? Well, when you search him on Wikipedia you get nothing. That always scares me about a player. When you search him on Google, you find a 1960′s Canadian instrumental band called Wes Dakus & the Rebels. You have to search Weston Dacus exactly to really find anything on him at all. Scary.
Anyway, Dacus is an undrafted rookie out of Arkansas. The Chiefs obviously like him, and apparently he can play all three linebacker positions. All I know is that if this trend continues, Derrick Johnson is going to be in the defensive huddle come opening day saying who the hell are these guys? Pat Thomas? Wes Dacus? Huh? What? Unless D.J. also…not going there. Knock on wood.
