The Kansas City Chiefs have had major issues with injuries this season losing TE Tony Moeaki, S Eric Berry and RB Jamaal Charles (and possible starting LB Brandon Siler) to season-ending injuries. But no one's feeling sorry for them, especially not the Buffalo Bills and Detroit Lions who stomped the Chiefs early in the year.
The Indianapolis Colts, who host the Chiefs in Week 5, have their own injury problems.
Lost for the season are S Melvin Bullitt, LB Gary Brackett, OT Benjamin Ijalana and DT Eric Foster. They're also got guys banged up like WR Anthony Gonzalez, DT Drake Nevis DT Fili Moala, LB Ernie Sims, G Ryan Diem and now OT Anthony Castonzo.
Oh, and QB Kerry Collins.
All those guys are pretty important to the success (or, now, lack thereof) of the Colts. Safety Antoine Bethea was asked by the Indy Star how they'll respond to the Colts' 0-4 start and this run of injuries.
"Get in the training room, get healthy. Watch film, get ready for the next opponent," Bethea said. "That's all you can do because (the Chiefs are not) going to come in feeling sorry for us."
He's right. The Chiefs have their own issues and no one felt sorry for them so they won't feel sorry for the Colts. Still, even a 20-3 victory would be good with me. No reason to hang a 40-burger on them. That's just cruel!
