Daily headlines to keep you up-to-date on the latest Chiefs news from local and national media

1. Bowe, new additions give Chiefs new look in Week 2

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe has made his much‐needed return to the Kansas City Chiefs after serving his weeklong suspension following an arrest last November.

He wasn't the only player who wasn't there a week ago. ”    READ MORE…

2. Chiefs Mailbag 9/11

Answering questions submitted from Chiefs Kingdom Braden Holecek of Ellsworth, Kansas asks: “With the recent injuries on defense, will Dee Ford see more playing time in hopes of filling that role?”

Braden—to answer your question, the injuries shouldn’t directly affect Ford’s playing time. Dee Ford plays outside linebacker and Derrick Johnson played on the inside. The skills needed to play those positions are much different and they’re not easily interchangeable. Although veteran Frank Zombo, a backup outside linebacker, did spend some time working on the inside at training camp and the preseason.”    READ MORE…

3. Chiefs haven’t lost faith in kicker Cairo Santos

Chiefs special teams coordinator Dave Toub attributes kicker Cairo Santos’ shaky season debut — he barely made one field goal and barely missed another, both of which hit an upright — not to nerves, but a flaw in his technique.

“In that game, he might’ve been a little nervous in the mental aspect of it, but really physically what happened was he was looking (at the ball),” Toub said. “Really, he couldn’t see the kick.

4. Bowe's return can't hurt struggling offense

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- For what it's worth, the Kansas City Chiefs are 1-9 over the years without Dwayne Bowe in their lineup. That includes last week's 26-10 loss to Tennessee, a game Bowe missed because of a one-game NFL suspension for a violation of the NFL's substance-abuse policy.

Bowe missed five games, four because of another NFL suspension, in 2009 and three games at the end of the 2012 season because of an injury. His absence hardly mattered in those years. The 2009 and 2012 Chiefs were lost causes, winning six games between them. He also missed the final game of last season because of a concussion. ”    READ MORE…

5. Expect a lot more touches for Jamaal Charles against the Broncos

Missing two defensive starters is not the way Kansas City hoped to head into a matchup against Peyton Manning, who shredded the Chiefs in a pair of Denver Broncos' victories last season.

Coach Andy Reid is confident Kansas City can overcome the unfortunate circumstance, but he's also likely focusing on how to get Jamaal Charles more touches during Sunday's matchup in Denver.”    READ MORE…
