The Kansas City Chiefs first injury report for New York Jets week listed three players and only one new name from last week. C Casey Wiegmann and LB Demorrio Williams are on the report, as they were last week, and now QB Kyle Orton joins the list of injured Chiefs.

Chiefs coach Todd Haley said on Wednesday that he didn't think Orton would practice but ultimately the Chiefs ended up listing him as a limited participant. His injury is on the finger of his throwing hand, which makes the recovery process for a quarterback a little more different. It's still early in the week but my initial guess is that Orton is available with only a handful of plays (like we think he was last week).

Onto the other two injured Chiefs...

Wiegmann is dealing with a finger injury, which he's had for a few weeks. Of course anytime you talk about an injury with him you have to bring up the consecutive snaps streak (10,000+). He was on the report last week but ended up playing so we shall see.

Williams has had this groin injury for multiple weeks -- usually being listed questionable, sometimes a full participant in practice and sometimes limited. On Wednesday he was listed as a full participant in practice.
