Happy Red Friday Addicts. If you weren’t around the site last night you may have missed some bad news. I hate to hit you with it this early in the morning but you need to know. Last night Nick Wright reported that Dexter McCluster has a high ankle sprain and could miss several weeks. Sigh.
We’ll keep you updated if we hear anything else on this subject. Be sure t stick around AA today. We are going to have some interesting stuff, including the debut of a new writer and our Bills preview.
Until then, here is your Morning Fix!
Some other AccuScore predictions to consider for the Bills: hot quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has a 61 percent chance of throwing at least one interception, and if he does, then the Chiefs become 73 percent favorites.
Although Haley might have found a loophole, outsiders are still likely to recoil when the Chiefs pass up points to satisfy the gamblers’ itch that Haley seems to clearly possess.
That doesn’t mean he’s wrong.
“Haley is going to win more of these than he loses,” Burke said. “Every now and then, he’s going to get stopped for a 1-yard loss. But more often, over the long run, they’re going to get these. And they’re going to win more games because of this.”
If Chiefs right guard Ryan Lilja, hampered by an injury to his right hand, is unable to play Sunday against Buffalo, rookie Jon Asamoah would make his first NFL start.
Lilja, like running back Dexter McCluster (ankle), did not fully participate in practice for the second straight day Thursday, and his right hand was encased in a thick wrapping.
“It’s your hometown team, and you think if you ever get the opportunity to do this, it would be pretty awesome. I feel blessed to have an opportunity to get the chance to play with a team that is doing so well right now and is going in the right direction, and it’s my hometown team.
The Chiefs said today they have sold enough non-premium tickets in order for Sunday’s game against winless Buffalo to be televised locally.
Channels 5 and 13 will carry the game at noon.
