I feel like David after the dentist: Is this real life?

The Kansas City Chiefs ended up having 13 total players on Wednesday's injury report which if you divide by 53 equals 24.5 percent of the roster. This comes after the Todd Haley era where the Chiefs would regularly have two, sometimes three players on the injury report.

Romeo Crennel took nearly two minutes yesterday reading off all the injuries and he only mentioned 10 of them. There were actually 13.

Your Wednesday injury report:

Full Participation: Javier Arenas, Allen Bailey, Jamaal Charles

This is an upgrade for Bailey, who hasn't yet played this year. Looks like he'll have a legit shot of playing this weekend. Charles and Arenas are both expected to be fine and play.

Limited Participation: Steve Breaston, Jalil Brown, Kendrick Lewis, Dexter McCluster, Jacques Reeves, Anthony Toribio, Devon Wylie

Here are the specifics of all these injuries. Some jammed thumbs and sore shoulders. Brown, Lewis, Toribio and Wylie are the returning players on this list. It doesn't sound like Lewis has a great shot at playing this weekend. Could be a little while.

Did Not Participate: Kevin Boss, Ryan Lilja, Jake O'Connell

Boss had this nasty looking head injury last weekend:


Combined with O'Connell that's 50 percent of the Chiefs tight end depth chart that's not practicing. Lilja has back issues, Crennel said on Thursday, and that's notable because if he does not play we could see our first action from second round pick Jeff Allen, who is waiting in the wings behind Lilja.
