Thursday's KC Chiefs news

Oakland's Own: Why Marcus Peters reps his city at every turn |

The more Peters pondered that possibility, the more he wondered how his entire family could move forward without this woman operating as the rock. He had spent most of his childhood in her home, had used it as a playground and a sanctuary, and he had known what it had meant to all his relatives. So as he stared somberly at his grandmother, Peters vowed to deliver for his family. "I just told myself that I wanted to always do what I loved and take care of my family," Peters said during a recent interview. "And I love football. So I put my all into making it to the league. I told myself that somebody needs to step up and make it out."

"Yesterday, Justin — with a table this high — jumped on it and stood," Hali said, holding his hand about four feet off the ground. "I said ‘If you can do that, you're able to play.' "

Houston won't be ready to play in the Chiefs' next game, Sunday at Oakland, but his return appears to be near. On Wednesday, Chiefs trainer Rick Burkholder said Houston met with orthopedic surgeon James Andrews on Oct. 3 — right after the Chiefs' 43-14 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers — and was cleared to progress with "football-type activity" as he continues to rehab an injured anterior cruciate ligament.

Travis Kelce endures plenty of drama on 'Catching Kelce' | ESPN

The series is as much about the jealous rivalries between contestants trying to win Kelce over as it is about Kelce's search for love and a true soulmate. Kelce at the end of the episode wound up playing referee between a couple of contestants who could be playing for the camera but genuinely looked like they hated one another.

Jamaal Charles Will Be Full Participant in Practice This Week |

"It was just fun," he said of his 10 snaps against the Steelers. "Like I tell everybody, I'm not worried about getting hit. I've been getting hit my whole life. I'm not worrying about getting tackled. I just need to get in a game and get the rhythm of the game and get the feeling back because I've been gone."

Notebook: Raiders Sean Smith returns to face former teammates | Chiefs Digest

"We had something special over there," Smith said. "We had a pretty good defense, made some plays and went to the postseason a couple of times. When you have something like that, you want to be a part of it as long as you can."

Kansas City Chiefs might ask Sio Moore to provide pass-rush help | ESPN

The Chiefs might have plans to give Moore a look as a pass-rusher against the Raiders and beyond. Their pass rush has been largely unproductive. The Chiefs have just five sacks. Only one team has fewer, though the Chiefs have played one fewer game than most NFL teams.
