But when starting cornerback Brandon Flowers left the lineup recently with a bruised foot, they turned to a safety, Travis Daniels to take his place. That doesn’t bode well for the Chiefs’ chances if either Flowers or their other starting cornerback, newcomer Stanford Routt, encounters a long-term injury.
Flowers, who was injured in Tuesday night’s practice, won’t be out long. He didn’t practice on Thursday but he could return as soon as Friday.
“We’ll treat it and rest it and then he’ll get back out there pretty soon, hopefully,” coach Romeo Crennel said.
