After navigating the first have the season relatively well, the Kansas City Chiefs have finally been bitten by the injury bug.
Brian Waters, Kendrick Lewis, Ryan Lilja, Jon McGraw, Dexter McCluster and Tony Moeaki are all suffering from various injuries. McGraw and Moeaki have already been ruled out for today’s game and Dexter McCluster hasn’t played since the Chiefs beat the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Perhaps looking for backup, the Chiefs reportedly worked out five players Friday, according to the National Football Post.
"The Kansas City Chiefs worked out three safeties on Friday, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.The Chiefs worked out Brad Jones, Ashton Hall and Jerome Boyd, reacting to injuries at safety with Jon McGraw and Donald Washington both banged-up."
The article goes on to say the Chiefs also worked out offensive guard Dennis Landolt and kicker Todd Carter.
These moves make sense. The Chiefs are getting dangerously thin at safety and guard and need some players on their radar in case things get really bad.
