The Morning Fix

Kansas City cornerback Brandon Flowers was limited in practice Wednesday with a hamstring injury that kept him out of the Chiefs’ win at Seattle on Sunday. Rookie receiver/returner/running back Dexter McCluster is not on the injury report after missing five games with an ankle injury.

“I think that would be me saying a lot if I say I predicted or anything like that. I have always felt, since that opportunity to coach him and let him play, that he was a very talented player,” McDaniels said. “Nobody works harder than he does, he is always in the facility first, and he will always be one of the last ones to leave. He is a great leader, he is very smart, he knows the defense, he’ll study tape until he knows it like the back of his hand, he is accurate, he is fearless.”

Three of the four players held out of practice were defensive backs: safeties Brian Dawkins and Darcel McBath and cornerback Andre Goodman. Receiver Demaryius Thomas also was out with an ankle injury. Those players are not expected to travel to Kansas City.
