Peyton Hillis, Glenn Dorsey making progress for Chiefs

Denny Medley-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Romeo Crennel said that key injured players like Glenn Dorsey and Peyton Hillis are making steps toward coming back during the Chiefs bye week.

The Kansas City Chiefs are dealing with multiple injuries on both sides of the ball, and part of the hope during the team's bye in Week 7 is that those players can come back stronger and healthier than before. Good news was delivered by head coach Romeo Crennel on Wednesday that two of those players are making strides to come back soon.

Glenn Dorsey is in a contract year and is key to the team's defensive line. Peyton Hillis was signed to bolster a backfield that was already suspect given the recent injury history of Jamaal Charles. However both players have struggled to stay on the field for the Chiefs and both have been out for several weeks apiece. Yet Crennel said both are finally participating and coming along in their hopes to come back for the rest of the season.

"On the injury front, [Peyton] Hillis did a little bit more yesterday," said Crennel in his opening remarks to the press on Wednesday. "He went through individual drills with the running backs, so that was a good sign. Hopefully he'll continue his improvement and we'll see where he is next week.

"[Glenn] Dorsey is still on the side doing more. I'm looking forward to him being able to do some individual drills and things like that."

So far, Hillis only has 21 carries for 93 yards in 2012. That's a total that's disappointing for all involved. The same can be said of Dorsey who has only 3 tackles in 3 games. While the return of both is only a small part of the puzzle, the Chiefs can use any help they can get.
