The Kansas City Chiefs have placed defensive end Glenn Dorsey on injured reserve with a calf injury and added defensive back Neiko Thorpe to the 53-man roster.
Dorsey played in just four games this season. He injured his left calf in practice in September and missed four games, then injured his right calf during a 31-13 loss to the Chargers on Nov. 1. The former first-round draft pick finishes the season with seven tackles and no sacks.
Thorpe made the Chiefs this summer after signing with the club as an undrafted rookie free agent. He played on special teams during a 9-6 loss to the Ravens last month, and was on the practice squad when he was promoted before Kansas City faced the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night.

As @jasonlacanfora reported, Chiefs DL Glenn Dorsey is headed to Injured Reserve, I’m told. Expect him to leave...
I DON'T MESS WITH HORSES
Remember all those screenplays and poems that Chiefs safety claimed to have written while on injured reserve last year? After this Inside the NFL segment about Berry’s equinophobia, I now imagine most of them to be horror stories about horse murders or seemingly pleasant episodes in Berry’s life that were ruined by berserk mares. The first 40 seconds of the clip are about Berry’s...
The Chiefs entered MNF as a 1-7 team that had not held the lead all season. They left MNF with another loss and a loss of respect. I was shocked how unprofessional the team acted.
There was a penalty on a TD when the Chief's player held the ball in the face of Steelers defender. Then there was a full team celebration in the endzone after a turnover that was...
The 1-7 Kansas City Chiefs were penalized in their game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night for excessive celebration on a touchdown that didn’t end up counting. I didn’t even know that was possible. The Steelers had a third-and-seven play from their 26 during the third quarter when backup quarterback Byron Leftwich had the ball knocked out of his hand. Linebacker...
Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel says he plans to speak to his team about discipline issues that cropped up during Monday night's loss at Pittsburgh, including an instance in which Kansas City was flagged for a group celebration.
Crennel says he isn't sure where the celebrations came from, but acknowledged that ''with the record we have, they can't afford to be dancing...
Chiefs quarterback Brady Quinn says he was cleared by a Pittsburgh doctor before Monday night’s loss to the Steelers, per Randy Covitz of the Kansas City Star.
“I’m real excited,” Quinn said, via Covitz. “I was glad to be able to come with the team and being around them again because it stinks not being around these guys and not feeling like you’re a part of them.”...
Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel wouldn't say who his starting quarterback will be for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Brady Quinn (concussion) has been cleared. SOURCE: Adam Teicher, Kansas City StarFantasy Spin:It shouldn't matter the fantasy owners. We just hope whomever Crennel chooses can get the ball to Dwayne Bowe and increase his rapidly shrinking fantasy value.
Kansas City coach Romeo Crennel would not commit to a starting quarterback for Sundays game against Cincinnati.
However, it seems like Brady Quinn may get the chance to play again. Quinn told reporters Monday night he has been cleared after missing two games with a concussion. However, Crennel said Quinn hasnt been officially cleared.
I think Brady [Quinn] said that he...

Welcome back, drinking game fans.
My apologies for taking last week off. I have no good excuses, so I will ask you to accept this video of a chimpanzee riding a Segway as a token of my regret and a thank you for you returning this week.
Wasn’t that awesome?
Now, when we last talked we were prepping for the 49ers to beat down the Cardinals, and they followed through nicely....
Unless you are a fan of either team, or need you need your kicker to win your fantasy week like me – there isn’t much to watch in this dud of a Monday nighter to conclude week 10. I was big on the Chiefs this year, and wrote off last season due to their injuries. They run the ball well, and have above average talent on defence, and a big target at WR in Dwayne Bowe. I solely...
Need another reason as to why Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley might want to run up the score up against the Kansas City Chiefs Monday night?
Jay Glazer reported Sunday morning on the Fox pregame show that the Chiefs still have yet to pay Haley what was remaining on his contract after firing him late last season. Mike Jurecki of XTRA Sports 910 in Phoenix reported...
When the Kansas City Chiefs took the Pittsburgh Steelers into overtime, with a last second game tying field goal, there was a glimmer of hope that the season could turn around. But in the end, the franchise killer struck once again.
The Steelers edged the woeful Kansas City Chiefs 16-13 in overtime on Monday night but lost Ben Roethlisberger for most of the second half and perhaps a lot longer with a right shoulder injury.
Roethlisberger left the game early in the third quarter after getting slammed to the turf by Kansas City linebackers Tamba Hali and Justin Houston and did not return.
