Chiefs News from the Overnight 8/11



The above image of Arrowhead is just to remind everyone where the team will be this weekend. Game Day is on the way!

It was yet another in a series of injuries that include a separated shoulder in last season’s opener in New England.

“I knew right away,” Croyle said. “As soon as it happened, it was just one of those ‘I cannot believe this is happening’ moments. I had the separated shoulder, and I had just got back out there and was playing well. Then, just like that …

“It seems like I’ve had a streak of those moments put together here. You just keep plugging along.”

Thigpen also knows the role of backup is important. The former Chanticleer started last season as a third stringer, but eventually started several games after injuries to the players in front of him.

"Being the second string, you're one play away; third string you're two plays away," said Thigpen. "I witnessed that last year, you always have to be ready."

Other possibilities could be San Diego’s Billy Volek or Kansas City’s Tyler Thigpen. Although Thigpen is young and he didn’t win with the Chiefs last year, he is a mobile quarterback who showed a lot of promise in throwing 17 touchdown passes in his 11 starts.

Media and Fans...

kb_kcstar I'm hesitant yet on Zach Thomas and how he'll stand up to the whole season. He's a big part of the LB corps, and he's aged and dinged up.

SI_PeterKing Very cool to meet Frank Herrmann and Jack Cassel of the Columbus Clippers afterward. Yes, Matt's older bro, a Clip reliever.

Robbie_Bennett: @Donny_Moore Chiefs' secondary is much better than what u rated them as well.I assume there will be roster updates upon release?I beg you

Chiefs__News: Dwayne Bowe / Bowe is listed as a third-team receiver on the Chiefs' first official depth chart, the Kansas #NFL #KC

That last one is from a Fantasy site, but I don't see an offical roster on the Mothership. Mother ship has the Official Depth Chart up, and Bowe is in the dog house.
