Pre-Game Notes:
The Kansas City Chiefs announced that John Browning will start todays game at defensive tackle in the place of Ryan Sims who is active. Sims has been slowed by a hamstring injury.

Running back Larry Johnson is also inactive after a turbulent week in the press. Johnson tried to make a positive spin on his disappointment for not being traded this past Tuesday at the NFL deadline to move players.

But the biggest news of the day is that the Chiefs announced they have benched starting cornerback Dexter McCleon in favor William Bartee who is 100% healthy for the first time since the opening weekend in Denver. Top Stories
