Kansas City Chiefs
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Chiefs put center Rodney Hudson on injured reserve Wednesday with a broken bone in his left leg and signed offensive linemen Russ Hochstein and Bryan Mattison to provide depth.
The moves came one day after Kansas City put cornerback Jacques Reeves on IR.
Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said veteran guard Ryan Lilja will start at center on Sunday against San Diego, and rookie Jeff Allen will take his place. It will be the same arrangement that Kansas City used once Hudson was hurt in last Sunday's overtime victory in New Orleans.
"In this job, that's what they tell you, There are going to be three things you don't expect to happen every day.' Not just every week, but every day. So you have to deal with it," Crennel said. "You have to replace guys that are not available."
Last season, it was the quality of players hurt: Pro Bowl safety Eric Berry, All-Pro running back Jamaal Charles, quarterback Matt Cassel and tight end Ton...
BEST OF MAXIM
KANSAS CITY, Mo. Desperate times, desperate measures. Feel like playing a little center, Eric Winston?
"No, no," the hulking Chiefs tackle said Monday, the first Victory Monday of Kansas City's young 2012 campaign. "We're in deep trouble if that happens, I promise you that."
Speaking of trouble, win No. 1 in New Orleans a 27-24 overtime escape came...
Center Rodney Hudson was placed on injured reserve by the Kansas City Chiefs with a right knee injury suffered in the second half against New Orleans on Sunday. Hudson walked off the field to the bench under his own power, but was then taken off the field on a cart. Offensive linemen Russ Hochstein and Bryan Mattison were signed. A veteran of 138 games, Hochstein has spent time...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. The last time Chiefs guard Ryan Lilja had to play center in an NFL game before last Sunday was...well...never.
In fact, Lilja, who now becomes the Chiefs' starting center because of Rodney Hudson's season-ending injury, can't remember playing the position in college or high school or even Pee Wee football, for that matter.
OK, there was that one time...
Chiefs wideout Dwayne Bowe was limited Thursday because of an injured thigh.Fantasy Spin:Bowe is the team's only top-tier receiver so if he can't go Sunday versus the Chargers, it would be a huge blow to quarterback Matt Cassel's fantasy value. We're not sure of the extent of Bowe's injury and the fact that he's being described as "limited" as opposed...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Chiefs put cornerback Jacques Reeves on injured reserve Tuesday.
The veteran defender has been dealing with a hamstring issue that kept him out of the Chiefs' 27-24 overtime victory at New Orleans on Sunday. Kansas City plays San Diego this Sunday.
Reeves has started 34 of the 90 games he's played in the NFL, but he stepped away from the game for...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Chiefs were trailing New Orleans 24-6, well on their way to a third straight humiliating defeat. Then the defense stiffened, Jamaal Charles started to gouge the Saints for big yards and Kansas City suddenly has new life.

According to Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star, Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was limited in Thursday practice because of a thigh injury. Fellow wide receiver Steve Breaston has a sore knee and will try to practice.
I’m sure Bowe and Breaston will be fine for Sunday’s game. We’ll monitor them as we get closer to game day.

Week 3 is over and the only thing you hear about is the replacement refs but the only guys that really matter are the kickers!
The “Mess in Miami” is something that was not Vanderjacked worthy. Dan Carpenter missed two field goals, including one in overtime. Carpenter was only 2-4 on the day and certainly must take the brunt of the boos on this one. Of course not much went right...
Nothing went right for the Kansas City Chiefs in their first two games while little could have gone better for the San Diego Chargers.
Week 3 was a considerably different story.
The Chiefs look to build off their stunning comeback victory Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium, where the Chargers are hoping to bounce back from an ugly no-show.
San Diego's early season struggles were...
The AFC West is getting worse than the Big Ten these days and that is thanks to both of the favorites performing like duds lately.
Philip Rivers and the Chargers offense has been a joke without a healthy Ryan Mathews in the backfield, but they should be in contention for a division title all season long.
Rivers has 4 TD and 3 INT, but 688 yards are skewed numbers once you realize...
