Chiefs Will Face Bills With a Limited Terrence McGee

Buffalo Bills cornerback Terrence McGee, once an All-Pro, may not see much action against the Kansas City Chiefs this weekend according to the Buffalo News.

McGee missed three consecutive games due to arthroscopic surgery to fix a torn meniscus in his left knee.  He returned last week but played sparingly.  Reggie Corner got the start ahead of McGee last week.

"I'm getting closer, but it's still a day-to-day type of thing," McGee said. "Whether I start or whether I do what I did last week is still up in the air but I feel like I'm getting better."

A missing McGee would be a nice boost for the Chiefs defense. 

The Bills currently rank dead last in the NFL in rush defense.  A solid rushing attack could help Chiefs QB Matt Cassel get back on track.

Speaking of the run game, Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams details some of the issues the defense has been experiencing.

"It's the same thing," he said. "A lot of it is misdirection on the counter plays, the cutback runs and a lot of the time we're over-pursuing. It's got to get corrected. When someone misses their gap and overruns it and doesn't make a play it exposes us."

The issues Williams describes sound similar to the Chiefs.

"It's hard to defend when you have guys pressing," he said. "Guys are just trying to get guys on the ground they're pressing to make a play because they are fed up with it and trying to do too much and that's when you get caught and get crazy."

There you have it, Chiefs fans. A banged up secondary and a weak run defense could mean stat day for Cassel.
