The Kansas City Chiefs could be getting WR Donnie Avery back after a nearly two month absence. Chiefs coach Andy Reid said on Friday that there is a chance that Avery, who had surgery before Week 5, would be able to play on Sunday night against the Denver Broncos. For a group of receivers that does not yet have a touchdown pass, this is welcome news. Avery's best skill is his speed which will give the Chiefs someone who can stretch the field (insert your joke about Alex Smith not going deep to use that speed here).

P Dustin Colquitt is probable for the game with a right calf injury. If you remember he got up slow from a punt in last week's loss to the Oakland Raiders. He'll be fine.

WR Junior Hemingway has been ruled out and will not play with a concussion.

CB Chris Owens is questionable. He is the nickel corner so I'd be curious how they would replace him. Phillip Gaines could already be playing on the outside with Ron Parker switching back to safety. Jamell Fleming is also probable for this game and could play.

DT Kevin Vickerson is also questionable. His presence doesn't seem to be as big of a deal in this game because he is used on run stopping downs and the Chiefs probably aren't doing a ton of run stopping against Peyton Manning.
