Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles dinged up the same knee that needed reconstructive surgery last season during Sunday's 35-17 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Charles, who tore his left ACL in Week 2, carried only six times for three yards against the Bills. He could be seen riding a bike on the sideline and asking to play the rest of the game. Kansas City coach Romeo Crennel said Monday that the decision was made to rest Charles, who has yet to show the same burst that carried him to more than 1,400 yards rushing in 2010. Crennel said he expects Charles to be ready for Sunday's game at New Orleans, another team that is winless through its first two games.

Chiefs searching for answers in 0-2 start

(Eds: Incorporates FBN--Chiefs-Charles. With AP Photos.) By DAVE SKRETTA AP Sports Writer The running game has disappeared. Matt Cassel looks completely lost. The defense has struggled to stop anybody, and even the special teams are looking anything but special. The Kansas City Chiefs are winless through two games - two demoralizing, one-sided losses to begin the year - and now...

Chiefs' Flowers returns for Kansas City

Kansas City starting cornerback Brandon Flowers is active for the Chiefs game against the Buffalo Bills Sunday. Flowers missed the team's season-opening loss to Atlanta last week because of a right heel injury. The Chiefs also welcomed back pro Bowl linebacker Tamba Hali, who missed the Falcons game because of a league-mandated suspension. Safety Kendrick Lewis (right shoulder...

Matt Cassel Tops 300 Yards in Loss to Buffalo

Kansas City quarterback Matt Cassel reached 300 yards in a game for the first time since 2010 Sunday in a blowout loss versus Buffalo.Fantasy Spin:Obviously most of the yardage came in garbage time with the Bills already up by 20 so take Cassel's gaudy numbers with a grain of salt. He still struggled with completion percentage (54.8 percent for the game) and his QB rating for...

Kansas City Chiefs are in hot water

Week 2 and 3 are some of the most interesting weeks of the NFL season. It's at this point in the year that fanbases begin to realize that their team may not be what they thought they had. On the other hand, some teams are stunning everyone by getting off to a quick start. No one is dead in the water yet, but this is the time of the season when panic begins to spread. That...

Chiefs' TE Boss out after taking blow to head

Kansas City tight end Kevin Boss has taken a shot to the head following a second-quarter catch and will not return to Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills. After catching a 29-yard pass from Matt Cassel, Boss was falling down when Buffalo's Da'Norris Searcy's forearm hit the back of Boss' head. The receiver's head then hit the ground hard. Boss stayed...

Déjà Vu All Over Again

Here we go again Chiefs fans.  In two weeks the Chiefs have gone from promising to forgotten.  Losing to a perennial playoff contender is one thing but being blown out by a perennial loser that lost by 20 the week before is a whole other monster.  On the very small bright side, at least we didn’t lose by 34 like last year.  I’m not sure if the Buffalo Bills have the Chiefs...

Week 2 Fantasy Football Recap: Kansas City Chiefs vs. Buffalo Bills

Kansas City Chiefs – 17, Buffalo Bills – 35Ugly ugly ugly is all you can say about the Chiefs’ effort, especially QB Matt Cassel’s (304 total yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT) through about three and half quarters.  Two late touchdown passes with the game already decided are the only things that saved Cassel’s fantasy day.  At some point, the Chiefs have to wonder if there’s any...

For good (& ill), 1 man can impact team

On Sunday, in a matchup between two winless teams, the Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints will showcase one of the NFL's elusive truths: That one man -- one man who does not compete on the field -- can shape the destiny of an entire organization. For the Chiefs, the 0-2 record can be traced directly to the presence and so-called leadership of general manager Scott Pioli...
