Chiefs look for answers after Morris injury

PFW: How badly will the loss of WR Sylvester Morris hurt the Chiefs?

Buchsbaum: Obviously it hurts the Chiefs. He's last year's first-round pick. Before he got hurt last season, he looked like a coming star in the San Diego game. Then he got hurt and never got on track after it. He's got size, speed, ability to catch the ball and enough of the other things to be a really good player in time, but he was inconsistent as a rookie, seemed to lose some focus after the injury and had a hard time running his routes. What the injury does is create a golden opportunity for Larry Parker, Tony Horne and especially rookie Marvin Minnis.

Minnis is a player the Chiefs feel could be a little bit like Isaac Bruce. He's quicker than fast, he's very nifty and elusive, he doesn't look big and physical, but he doesn't seem to get hurt and he's been highly productive wherever he's been. Also, like Bruce, he ran 4.55-4.6 coming out of school on most tracks, and in the high 4.4s on a very fast track.

I'm so glad Snoop Minnis worked out for us. And isn't it a little ridiculous that his first name is Marvin yet somehow he pulls off everyone calling him Snoop? Give me a break.
