New, comments

Good morning everyone.

Here's your daily slate of Kansas City Chiefs news.

Regarding Denny Thum | Red Zone
Rumors fill the void when there is a vacuum of information and that seems to be the case with the resignation of president Denny Thum. I’m not certain how voluntary his resignation was but after talking with some people familiar with the situation, I’m convinced there’s nothing sinister going on here.

Browns' Harrison itching for another shot at Chiefs - KansasCity.com
Harrison should have a fondness for the Chiefs. They made a hero of the previously unheralded Harrison last year when he rushed for 286 yards and three touchdowns in Cleveland’s win at Arrowhead Stadium. That puts him third on the all-time list of single-game rushers, 10 behind the record holder, Minnesota’s Adrian Peterson. The Chiefs are embarrassed at the memory.

Meanwhile, the Kansas City Chiefs have had Harrison's number circled since the schedule came out. Harrison scorched the Chiefs in their last home game last year, putting up a phenomenal 286 yards rushing and three touchdowns on 34 attempts. It was the highest rushing total in Browns history and the third-highest all time for an NFL back.

Chiefs vs. Browns: Kansas City Will Prepare For Seneca Wallace, Too - SB Nation Kansas City
There's no update yet on whether it will be Jake Delhomme or Seneca Wallace taking the snaps under center in the Cleveland Browns and Kansas City Chiefs game. Because of that, the Chiefs will be prepared to defend both. Delhomme is more of a pure pocket-passer while Wallace's unique threat includes his athleticism and ability to run.

Q&A with Todd Haley - 9/16

Arrowhead Report: Thursday, Sept. 16th
Other options for the Chiefs include the promotion of Dion Gales from the practice squad. Gales played in three games and recorded three tackles following a practice squad promotion last December. A corresponding roster move would have to be made should Kansas City choose to go down that route.
