The Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots will meet on Monday Night Football and you know the week is getting started when injury reports are coming out.

The Patriots are the first team to release theirs and a whopping 17 players are on the report.

Big names on that list include Waters and Welker. We'll see how they progress throughout the week.

I bet the Chiefs have a handful of guys on the report when they release it later today. QB Matt Cassel will be ruled out, C Casey Wiegmann has a hand injury and DE Glenn Dorsey had a leg injury. I'm sure there are a couple others we don't even know about.
