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


1. Davis should get another heavy workload

By Adam Teicher -

"Expect another heavy workload for Knile Davis this weekend. Rookie De'Anthony Thomas might be available for the first time in his NFL career, but Jamaal Charles is unlikely to play for the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday when they play the Dolphins in Miami.

Coach Andy Reid said Charles has a high ankle sprain, and though Reid didn't rule him out of the Dolphins' game, he would probably need more recovery time before he's ready to play."    READ MORE…

Hammond Jr. (six punt returns, 8.16 yards per runback), for all his quicks, isn't DAT. Then again, who is?"  READ MORE…

4. There are no moral victories, but Chiefs showed improvement Sunday

By Sam Mellinger - The Kansas City Star

"Moral victories are for arguments with your spouse, not NFL games, so the company line is tight and consistent here.

5. The Film Don't Lie: Chiefs

By Adam Teicher -

"A weekly look at what the Kansas City Chiefs must fix:

The Chiefs are one of four teams yet to force their opponent to commit a turnover. That's one reason the Chiefs are 0-2 going into Sunday's game against the Dolphins in Miami. Their defensive system is based on pressuring the opponent into making mistakes, and the Chiefs have failed in that regard so far. The Chiefs' pass rush has otherwise been productive. It has a sack on 8.5 percent of its opponents' pass attempts, which ranks eighth in the league. In their 9-0 start last season, the Chiefs led the NFL with 23 takeaways and five defensive touchdowns."    READ MORE…
