Good morning. Here is today's Kansas City Chiefs news. Enjoy.
Hunt Family, Kansas City Chiefs Establish Trust For Zoey Michelle Belcher from The Mothership
The Kansas City Chiefs organization is pleased to announce the formation of the Zoey Michelle Belcher Irrevocable Trust.
The trust, established through contributions from the Hunt family, as well as Chiefs players, coaches and staff, will be located at UMB in Kansas City. UMB will act as corporate trustee and work in conjunction with Zoey's legal guardian to ensure that the money is used for her benefit.
A Kansas City police video of officers talking with Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher hours before he killed his girlfriend and took his own life appears to show a cordial encounter in which officers had no cause to suspect he was doing anything other than sleeping in his car - which is not a crime.
A Reunion Of Sorts As Chiefs Travel To Cleveland from The Mothership
"See, I've been back there before, so it's old hat," Crennel said. "And the last time I was there I believe we won (16-14), so we'll see if we can do it again."
Although Crennel wasn't serving as the head coach during the Chiefs victory, the memory still remains sweet.
"Winning is winning," Crennel commented. "Winning as an assistant, winning as a head coach, winning is winning. And when you win, you feel good. And when you lose, you don't feel good. I don't care what position you're coaching."
Chiefs Rookie Safety Hartman: Trial By Fire from KC Star
Hartman, playing extensively for the first time, suddenly didn't feel so young.
"Guys were dropping like flies," said Hartman, who came to the Chiefs undrafted out of Kansas State. "I feel like I did (well) enough after not getting many reps at practice and then getting thrown in there. I was prepared to play some of the game but not to the extent I did. I didn't have any critical errors. I tried to let the game come to me."
DiMarco Makes An Impact In Chiefs Debut from KC Star
Chiefs fullback Patrick DiMarco hadn't been on the field in almost two years, but the wait was worth it.
DiMarco, who joined the Chiefs as a free agent in early August and spent the first 11 weeks of the season on the practice squad, was activated for last week's game against Carolina and started the first NFL game he's ever appeared in.
Kansas City Chiefs (2-10) At Cleveland Browns (4-8) from Lindy's Sports
The Chiefs are coming off an emotional victory and the Browns have their first winning streak since 2011, but which team can maintain its intensity level? Former Browns QB Brady Quinn had an efficient game for Kansas City, but needs the backing of a strong ground game - especially behind a battered offensive line. Look for RB Jamaal Charles to attack the edges and for another former Brown, Peyton Hillis, to play a key role in short-yardage. Browns QB Brandon Weeden said he has received "better than outstanding" protection - a result of strong blocking and respect paid to RB Trent Richardson. Weeden has the arm and the emerging weapons in Josh Gordon and Greg Little, but must avoid the handful of forced throws he is prone to each game.
Eric Winston On Chiefs Decision To Play Last Weekend: "It Was The Best Of The Worst Options We Had" from Sports Radio Interviews
Eric Winston joined KILT in Houston with Josh Innes and Rich Lord to talk about the decision by Kansas City to play last weekend, if he had any issue with his teammates wearing T-Shirts to honor Jovan Belcher, the way Romeo Crennel handled the entire situation, increasing awareness for domestic violence and what the mood surrounding the team was like on Sunday before the game against the Panthers.
Chiefs To Pay For Belcher's Funeral from The Daily Beast
The Kansas City Chiefs have offered to pay for Jovan Belcher's funeral and have also offered assistance to the family of his murdered girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins.
NFL Week 14 Storylines: Greg Hardy Spices Up The Carolina-Atlanta Matchup from Sports Illustrated
The past few days have been extremely trying for the Kansas City Chiefs, in light of teammate Jovan Belcher's murder-suicide incident. Sunday will be emotional too for several Chiefs, in an entirely different way.
Brady Quinn, a winner in Week 13, will get the start again this week as the Chiefs visit Cleveland, where Quinn's career began. RB Peyton Hillis joined him there, putting up a Madden video game cover-worthy 2010 before falling out of favor. And Crennel led the Browns from 2005 through 2008 - his last head coaching job before taking over in K.C.
Browns Notebook: Browns Healthy For Chiefs from The Canton Repository
For the first time this year, no one on the Browns' 53-man roster heads into a game listed as "questionable," "doubtful" or "out" on the injury report.
The Chiefs are relatively banged up. Ex-Brown Abe Elam, now a Chiefs safety, is doubtful with a quad injury.
