The Kansas City Chiefs could be without one of their best players Sunday when they play the Seahawks.
According to Kent Babb of the Kansas City Star, CB Brandon Flowers did not practice today. Flowers left last week’s game against the Arizona Cardinals with what the team called a “hamstring injury.”
Hamstring injuries are bad news for NFL players. They tend to linger and plaque a guy all season.
Whether or not Flowers will be able to play Sunday remains to be seen but the Chiefs appear to be taking no chances.
According to Adam Caplan of Fox Sports, the Chiefs worked out veteran CB Tye Hill earlier in the week. Hill was a first round pick by the St. Louis Rams in 2006 and was recently cut by the Titans in September.
Working out hill could be an indication that Flowers may not be able to go Sunday. The Chiefs likely would prefer to have another veteran corner available because Javier Arenas is a rookie.
In other injury news, Babb also reported that Branden Albert (hip) and Tony Moeaki (head) were limited in practice. Safety John McGraw (knee) sat out with Flowers.
