The Morning Fix

Kansas City concludes its preseason slate with a trip to Lambeau Field to face Green Bay on Thursday, Sept. 1. The Chiefs enter the game after a 14-10 loss vs. St. Louis (8/26) while the Packers won 24-21 at Indianapolis (8/26). It marks the second-consecutive season the two clubs have met in the preseason.

The Bills will open the 2011 season Sept. 11 in Kansas City. The Chiefs have been more hapless in their first three preseason games than the Bills were in their first two. Kansas City is 0-3 and has been outscored 70-23, outgained 1,026 to 734 and is averaging only 3.35 yards per carry.

“Like I said, I’m encouraged with his progress. That’s part of this deal. Everybody’s under the same rules, so to speak, as far as how much time everybody’s had to get ready. We’re in that mix too. But within that mix there are different guys that have come in at different times that are dealing with different issues and I think that’s going to be one of the things that can give you an advantage or a disadvantage as we go forward, it’s just with how you handle each situation in trying to be right.”
