The Kansas City Chiefs had more than just Anthony Toribio and Glenn Dorsey go down in Friday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. At least three more players came away with injuries notable enough for Romeo Crennel to mention in a Saturday night conference call with reporters.

There were no "major" injuries, Crennel said last night and again this evening. We touched on how Toribio and Dorsey's injuries happened here. Toribio will be "limited for a little bit" and Dorsey was "doing better today." No timetable on either player.

There were three more injuries we hadn't noted -- Allen Bailey (ankle), Jalil Brown (groin) and Terrance Copper (groin).

"[Allen] Bailey got his ankle rolled up," Crennel continued. "He was able to move around a little bit today, so we'll see how that turns out.

"Jalil Brown had a groin, so we're going to have to be a little ginger with him until we gain some strength in that area.

"[Terrance] Copper also had a groin, so it's the same situation with him."

He said they'll need to give these guys "a little rest."

I don't know how long that will be but in the meantime this means the Chiefs have a new starting cornerback...Jacques Reeves. Indeed, with Brandon Flowers and now Brown out, Reeves steps into that role.

The Chiefs have two weeks to rest Flowers, Brown and any of the other injured guys. Week 1 starts two weeks from Sunday.
